AbleChild’s Co-founders Patricia Weathers and Sheila Matthews along with other parents and organizations visited with lawmakers to show our support for “The Parental Consent Act”, informed consent, and drug safety. We are pleased to say that many legislators are willing to listen to parent’s voices.
AbleChild had the pleasure of meeting with Senator Grassley on July 25th, 2007 and thanked him for all his effort on the issue of “informed consent” and “Drug safety” to ensure our children’s health and safety. Much thanks to Senator Grassley! Special thanks goes to Congressman Dan Burton for all his support and work on the “Child Medication Safety Act” and his determination and tenacity in protecting our children’s health. Much thanks to all his efforts! A warm thanks to Congressman Ron Paul for his support of parental rights and full informed consent. See “ The Parental Consent Act of 2007“ Thanks Congressman Paul!
