A Ghanaian parent in the United States has raised concerns over a new school policy that allows children to transition to LGBTQ+ without the consent of their parents. Pastor Neil Acheampong spoke out against Policy 443 at a local town meeting in Maryland, saying it is disturbing and takes away the parent’s role as the first line of safety and defence for the child.
Acheampong argued that the policy opens the door for predators who are gradually creeping into the school system to destroy the children. He also noted that parental consent is sought for things as simple as administering pain medication to children in school, yet Policy 443 disregards the parent’s consent in such an important decision-making process.
The founder and head pastor of Family Life Chapel called for a review of the policy, urging the authorities to consider the long-term impact of the policy on the children and the society at large. He emphasized that parents should be involved in any decision regarding their children’s sexual orientation and gender identity, as they are the primary caregivers and protectors of their children.
For the most part, parents have a natural instinct to protect their children, and they should not be sidelined in such a critical decision-making process. It is important to recognize the role of parents in the upbringing of their children and the need to involve them in any decision that affects their children’s well-being.
In conclusion, the policy needs to be reevaluated, and parents’ concerns should be addressed. While it is important to create an inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ children in schools, it should not be at the expense of parental rights and the safety of the children.
