About Us

Our Story

In the heart of South Carolina, a movement was born out of necessity and fueled by determination. Parental Rights South Carolina began its journey in 2020, spurred into action by a growing concern over the preservation of parental rights within the state. Our initial step onto the advocacy stage involved drafting the Parental Bill of Rights, Bill H4555 and S900, a bold endeavor aimed at cementing the fundamental rights of parents in legislation. Despite the meticulous effort and passion poured into this initiative, the bills filed that year did not pass, marking our first encounter with the challenging terrain of legislative advocacy.

Undeterred by this setback, we returned to the legislative arena with renewed vigor in the following session, introducing H3197 and S234. This second attempt, though again unsuccessful in securing passage, served as a crucible for our organization, refining our understanding of the South Carolina legislative process. We confronted firsthand the precarious nature of filing legislation, learning how proposed amendments could potentially compromise bills, diluting the very freedoms we sought to protect. It was a lesson in the complexities and risks inherent in the legislative journey.

Through these experiences, we gained valuable insights into the multitude of threats lurking within legislation, threats that could usurp the rights of parents under the guise of progress. We observed the influence of special interest groups and political cover organizations, their efforts to draft, fund, and push bills that posed a risk to the loss of parental rights. This realization was a turning point for our organization.

Motivated by the challenges we faced and inspired by the stories of parents who had suffered due to government infringements, we evolved our strategy. Recognizing the need for a more vigilant approach, Parental Rights South Carolina transformed into a full-blown parental rights legislative watchdog advocacy group. Our mission crystallized: to monitor, analyze, and act against any legislative attempts that threatened parental rights in South Carolina.

Today, we stand as a beacon of hope and a pillar of support for parents across the state. Our commitment to safeguarding the rights of parents to raise their children as they see fit has only deepened with time. We are inspired by the resilience and courage of the many parents who have joined our cause, their stories fueling our determination to fight for a future where parental rights are unequivocally respected and protected.

Parental Rights South Carolina’s story is one of growth, learning, and adaptation. From drafting bills to becoming a vigilant watchdog, our journey reflects the evolving landscape of advocacy and the unyielding spirit of those who believe in the sanctity of parental rights. We are more than an organization; we are a community united by a common cause, ready to face the challenges ahead with unwavering resolve.
