Louisiana - HB 92 moving against shared parenting.

Shared parenting is still under attack by extreme feminists who will stop at nothing by complete control of children despite the facts and studies that show this is not on not good or children, but actually dangerous to their development n many ways.

Letter to Media

Children have a right to be raised and supported by both fit parents. Why do members of the Louisiana legislature want to take away the right of parents to share in raising their children? Why do we want government telling us we can not share in the most fundamental right of the family? Representative Shirley Bowler and friends want to do just that. She is introducing HB 92 which would make obtaining or keeping shared parenting virtually impossible in this state.

Why do this when the family court judges, family psychologists, legal scholars, federal government, and other state's government representatives recognize the importance to keep both parents in children's lives. And why would you want to create the known harm if both fit parents do not share in their children's lives.

Example: Last year the governor of Iowa stated, "The most important legislation I have signed in Iowa was the bill to promote the improved shared parenting law for couples divorcing."
The bill was
overwhelmingly passed by the Iowa legislature.

Studies strongly support shared parenting for our children.

The first shared custody statute was signed into law in Indiana in 1973, and since then shared parenting has spread to all states in the U.S. "Inherent in the express public policy is a recognition of the child's equal right to equal access and opportunity with both parents, the right to be guided and nurtured by both parents, the right to have major decisions made by the application of both parents' wisdom, judgment and experience." -Judge Dorothy T. Beasley, Georgia Court of Appeals, In the Interest of A.R.B., a child, July 3, 1993.

"One clear message from the accumulated divorce research is that children profit by continued exposure to both parents." Journal of Divorce, Vol. 8, No.2 Winter 1984

"The application of shared parenting planning serves to lessen the negative effects of divorce on children by 95.7%."
Report on the
National Survey of Family Court Judges, Journal of Divorce and Remarriage, Robert L. Fischer, 1997, Haworth Press

Why then would the state seek to make shared parenting legally more difficult? Why do our legislative representatives want to promote more conflict in the family, rather than less? And ultimately, why would anyone want to remove and separate a child from fit parents?

The citizens of Louisiana need to find out the answer.
Call the
governor's office, call your legislative representative, and call Mrs. Bowler.

This House Bill 92 is wrong for the families of Louisiana. It represents another example of "backward" thinking by our legislative representatives, and gives every family another reason to leave Louisiana.
