"Empowering Parents, Leading the Fight

to Protect Our Kids in Schools from Smut and Porn"

Guest Speaker

Representative Jared Patterson (HD106)

After joining with concerned moms across Texas and fighting against sexually-explicit materials in schools at the local level, Rep. Jared Patterson of Frisco filed and passed HB 900, "The READER Act." This bill requires book vendors to appropriately rate educational resources sold to districts, bans sexually explicit content and provides greater transparency and parental controls for other relevant materials. "The READER Act" is model legislation for the rest of the nation as we continue to fight against the radical sexualization of our children. The ACLU has just announced a lawsuit seeking to block implementation of this law. Come hear the latest on this legislation and other key bills to protect our kids.

Remember Baby Tinslee?

The story of Baby Tinslee dominated the headlines back in 2019. This gripping case focused national attention on the need to reform the rights of patients facing threats to their very existence from institutions that we count on to protect us.  Baby Tinslee was born with a rare heart condition. Before her first birthday, a hospital ethics committee authorized removal of her life-sustaining treatment, which would have effectively ended her life. This law, the Texas Advance Directives Act, allows doctors to end treatment 10 days after notifying the family, even if the family opposes.  Baby Tinslee’s mother and family fought bravely for her life and won the legal right to continue treatment. Today, Baby Tinslee is four years old and lives at home.  


Rep. Stephanie Klick has been fighting to reform this system for almost two decades, first as a grass roots activist and eventually as Chair of the Public Health Committee in the Texas House. This last session, she brought all effected parties together and passed major legislation that reaffirms the sanctity of life and the rights of patients to choose life. This landmark change protects families who are fighting for their vulnerable loved ones. 


That’s why, in an historic, first-ever resolution, the Tarrant County Republican Assembly has honored Rep. Stephanie Klick for her steadfast leadership in authoring and shepherding this legislation to passage. I hope you’ll take a minute to read the attached resolution which provides even more detail.
