FL: Oppose SB 1558 which can take away children from parents (Call to Action)

SB 1558 authored by Senator Lauren Book. HB 7049 authored by Criminal Justice subcommittee; Representative Spano – Among a number of things this bill seeks to do is remove parental rights of parents convicted of viewing child pornography even if the child was not the victim!

It empowers Department of Children and Families to make this call. We all know the horrific track record of DCF and how many children have died in their custody and control or oversight.


Many of you ask how you may help and be involved. This is one of the most important ways you may do both.

So would this apply nationwide, or just in Florida?

Lauren Book is a FL legislator, and apparently new at it. More than likely trying to make a name for herself at the expense of the children and families of Florida.

Personally, I don’t see how a law such as this could pass constitutional muster. It’s that old slippery slope argument. First people convicted of possession of CP, then what, drunk drivers or marijuana users?


Exactly what is Lauren Book’s qualification for being a State Senator? Being abused by the nanny? On that note… what exactly were Mr. and Mrs. Book doing while their child was being -quite openly, in her own words – physically and sexually abused in their own home for over 6 years? Busy making money? Pathetic people.

I certainly don’t agree with people viewing child porn, but this is gross! Children need their parents unless the child is being abused etc? What about the drug dealers etc?

Florida Sex Offenders are just beaten over and over again.

The vengeful idiots that create and get these ridiculous laws pushed through need to be sued.

Unfortunately, their judges are just as bad.

How can they even debate how hundreds of sex offenders living under a bridge is keeping the community safe, and now they want to break up families too?

You would think that would be an easy Constitutional challenge as taking away parental rights should require a “strict scrutiny” review by judges. Nope. Those backwards judges will claim otherwise as long as a sex offender is involved.

Look who wrote the Bill and you can guess there will be more bills coming.

the courts are no longer there to enforce the law of the land, our Constitution, but are politically, monetarily, and professionally motivated to simply rubber stamp anything that comes out of the legislative branch or that panders to the mob rules mentality..they are going to continue to run roughshod over are Constitution until someone articulate and intelligent enough challenges the justification and the lies that came out of the Mcklune, smith and Connecticut decisions…

Mr Book is a very compromised and disturbed individual and should not be writing Senate Bills, period. His bills only reflect who he is as an individual. There is no bases or data that supports the majority of junk he has written. He needs help.

The bill, if passed will be very harmful and its’ affect will be felt through out the state and further. More kids for the state to raise. Never ever a good thing, ever.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
