I’m tired of worrying about you stealing my life away. I should not have to feel like you are spying over my shoulder every time I do anything. This is America. Land of the free, remember? At least, it used to be.
Let me tell you something, ’cause you obviously don’t know…
I have the right to run my home and raise my children in a way I feel is honoring to the Lord. I should not have to explain my decisions to you, or ask for your permission to do so.
I have a right to refuse to inject my children with viruses which have been propagated in aborted fetal tissue and animal cells. I should not have to fear retribution for refusing your vaccines.
I have a right to teach my children from my home, whatever and however I choose, in a way that I feel is honoring to our beliefs. I should not have to worry that somebody will come and force me to enroll my children in an educational system riddled with child molesters, misinformation, and dumbing down techniques.
I have the right to take my children to see a doctor when they are in need of medical assistance, without the fear of a government employee falsely accusing me of neglecting my child just so that they can steal them away for their own profit.
I have the right to eat whatever I want, however I want. If I choose to eat something fresh, or raw, the way the Lord intended for it to be consumed, that should be my decision to make, and nobody else’s. I do not need an agency to regulate how I nourish my body.
I have the right to give birth in the comforts of my own home, with the assistance of a trained professional overseeing our safety. I should not have to fear government intervention or retribution for making such a personal and intimate decision on my own behalf.
I have the right to travel without being questioned, or molested by a government official afraid of something that isn’t there.
I have the right to protect my home from those who intend to do harm to me or my precious children, with lethal force if necessary. I should not have to fear being left helpless because you have stolen my only means of true protection away.
I have the right to speak out when I see wrong taking place, even if it is you, our government, which is acting immorally. I should not have to fear being labeled an extremist, and being persecuted as such.
I am not stupid, contrary to what you may believe. I am an intelligent person, capable of making well-informed decisions. I do not need you to force your preferences on me “for my own good”.
I have a right to make my own choices in every area of my life, as long as it does not hurt anybody else.
I have the right to be left alone to live in peace. I am tired of living in fear of you, Big Brother.
Get out of our homes. Get out of our lives. Do your job and protect us. Protect us from those who would harm us… not from ourselves. Stop trampling on our rights. They were given to us by our Creator, not by you, and you cannot have them.
A mother. A fighter. An advocate for freedom.
I write this in the wake of the persecution of my beloved midwife, who is not allowed to assist in home deliveries in this state. I write this in the midst of a case against a precious family who has chosen not to vaccinate their children and now has to fight the state which is trying to steal their children away. I write this on behalf of those who love to drink raw milk, and the farmers who sacrifice everything to provide it to their loyal customers. I write this as a homeschooling mom who is prepared to fight the day when it is made illegal.
Why is it that such personal decisions can be regulated by lawmakers who really have no business in our homes and in our lives?
Why do we continue to allow the government to tell us what is good for us, as if we are incompetent fools incapable of making rational decisions?
When is it enough?
When will we stand up and say, “I can make my own decisions, thank you!”
Tonight, I cannot contain my outrage. I feel like shouting at the top of my lungs, “LEAVE US ALONE!!!”, but I am a whisper in the wind.
Even so, let me whisper with all of my might.
