PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020) - A bill proposed in Missouri could put power back in the hands of parents, over librarians who are giving minors "age-inappropriate sexual material" and promoting events like the so-called Drag Queen Story Hour.
Rep. Ben Baker proposed the "Parental Oversight of Public Libraries Act" earlier this month, out of concern for children.
And, in fact, Rep. Baker's proposed bill is a direct result of LifeSite's and Personhood Alliance's original petition efforts.
We said that we would take our concerns to state and federal legislators, and that's exactly what we did.
Immediately after hand-delivering our petition to the American Library Associations's Senior Director of Public Policy and Government Relations, Dr. Alan Inouye, we started to approach state legislators about how we could make libraries safe for children, again.
And, thanks to Rep. Baker, the process of parents taking back control of local, public libraries has now started in Missouri. But, we need that process to catch fire in every state across the nation.
As Rep. Baker told KOAM TV: "The main thing is I want to be able to take my kids to a library and make sure they’re in a safe environment, and that they’re not gonna be exposed to something that is objectionable material. Unfortunately, there are some libraries in the state of Missouri that have done this. And that’s a problem."
Unfortunately, librarians have proven, by their actions which put innocent children at risk, that they cannot be trusted to put the best interests of children above the interests of the adult LGBT community.
Quite simply, legislators now allow parents, in every state, to regain control of their local libraries.
LifeSite and Personhood Alliance believe that putting the power back into the hands of parents is a good idea.
Such legal initiatives can put a stop to exposing children to perverse sexual material which is beyond their years and comprehension - like what happens at Drag Queen Story Hours - and, we will continue to promote these initiatives.
Rep. Baker's bill would require that libraries establish parental review boards, elected from the local community, which would decide which material would go into which section in the library (adult's or children's), seeking to ensure that children are not exposed to "age-inappropriate sexual content."
Public libraries which do not use parental review boards would lose state funding, and librarians who violate the proposed law could be subject to sanctions.
“The main thing that I’ve heard is that I want to ban books or ban content or censor content, and that’s not the case. I just think that there’s a line between what is open and available access for our children,” says Rep. Baker. “Even the bill specifies it wouldn’t be taken out of the library, it would just be put in a section that’s not for children.”
LifeSite and Personhood Alliance are combining forces to combat the new and twisted phenomenon of the "Drag Queen Story Hour" taking over America's libraries.
You might think that if you live outside of a big, liberal city like San Francisco or New York, your children will be safe at your local library, right?
A cross-dressing man is coming to a library near you, to teach your child about "gender fluidity," and YOU are actually helping to fund him with your state, local and federal tax dollars.
Believe it or not, there is a well-orchestrated, subversive plan being promoted by the American Library Association, to promote a phenomenon known as "Drag Queen Story Hour" (DQSH) to small-town American libraries, in order to “capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and give kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”
When groups of concerned parents mobilized in Texas, Ohio, Kentucky and South Carolina against this perverted and subversive campaign, the American Library Association responded with orchestrated training strategies on how to how to be a “secret librarian advocate operative.”

Then, please SIGN this petition to Wanda Kay Brown, the President of the American Library Association, to tell her to immediately stop the subversive efforts by the American Library Association to pervert the children of small-town America.
LifeSiteNews and the Personhood Alliance have already hand-delivered Phase One of the petition to the American Library Association's Washington DC offices, and told them to focus on promoting literacy, not homosexuality and perverted notions of sexuality.
With the current phase of the petition (Phase Two), we now pivot to local, state and federal agencies.
LifeSiteNews and the Personhood Alliance will continue to collect signatures for this petition.
We need YOUR support to enlist state legislators, as well as US Representatives and Senators to help us safeguard young people from this corruption, and ensure that government funding is not used by the ALA to promote DQSHs.
And, Personhood Alliance, supported by LifeSite, have and will continue to prayerfully and peacefully oppose - in person, at such events at libraries around the US - this perverse attempt to corrupt our children. Please join us!
Again, please join us in telling the American Library Association, and those promoting the corruption of our children, that we will NOT go along with their subversive activities.
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this petition so that we can deliver the signatures to state legislators, as well as to the US Congress in Washington, DC.
If you interested in peaceful, prayerful IN-PERSON opposition, please contact us at the link below.
God bless you and protect our children.
