Defining the Limits of Judicial Intervention in the ‘IN re NH’ Case


Since the start of 2023, the Family Freedom Project (FFP) has been involved in IN re NH, a case marked by its implications for parental rights and government intervention in family matters. The case in question presents a fundamental question about parental rights in Texas. The heart of the matter in front of the Supreme Court of Texas (SCOTX) revolves around the legal rule that judges must begin a case by presuming that a parent is acting in the best interests of their child. This principle was emphasized by the SCOTX in a previous case called “In re C.J.C.” The issue left [...]

FFP is launching our most significant parental rights campaign of all time with the prioritization of a Parental Rights Constitutional Amendment. In the 2023 legislative session, FFP’s team of experts will push for the passage of an amendment to the Texas Constitution that will enshrine protections for parents and families for generations to come.

Parental Rights Question Goes to Supreme Court of Texas In Emergency Appeal


On June 2, 2023, Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott, restricting chemical and surgical gender transition procedures on minors. On August 25, 2023, a district court in Travis County issued an injunction to prevent the state from enforcing SB 14, a move that was widely anticipated by those closely following the ongoing legal debate. Within an hour, the Texas Attorney General’s office had filed an emergency appeal directly to the Supreme Court of Texas (SCOTX), a move that automatically halted the order from the trial judge, which had blocked the law. The SCOTX [...]
