Child Gender Transition: The TX Supreme Court Case that Everyone Got Wrong, and Why It Matters

2024-07-03T20:51:24+00:00

Key Facts: SB 14 is a Texas law prohibiting chemical and surgical gender transition procedures on minor children. The ACLU sued to overturn the law, arguing that parents have the constitutional right to make medical decisions for their children, including by obtaining gender transition procedures. Gender transition drugs and surgeries cause significant and lifelong harm to children, as demonstrated in numerous briefs to the court. The Family Freedom Project and the Pacific Justice Institute urged the Texas Supreme Court to protect children without weakening the constitutional rights of parents. To do this, the court needed only to conclude that 1) [...]

CPS Removes 10,000 Fewer Children Per Year Than in 2017

2023-10-24T18:13:50+00:00

How the Legislature Protected Children by Reigning in Texas’ Child Protection Agency Of all of the state agencies in Texas, Child Protective Services (CPS) may be simultaneously the most well-known and the least understood. Virtually every person knows CPS by name, but very few could describe accurately how the agency functions or what the realm of child protection law looks like.  In criminal law, the death penalty is the gravest sentence that a convict can receive. The United States Constitution and numerous statutes create a closely knit weave of protections for criminals that tightly constrain the state’s ability to dish [...]

Important Supreme Court of Texas Case Updates

2023-03-13T20:14:04+00:00

It is no surprise to most families that the family and children are under assault in our society and culture today, and Texas is no exception. Almost four decades ago, a small group of activists started a grassroots organization to defend the rights of parents in Texas to teach their children at home. The basis of that right, we argued, was the fact that parents have a God-given right to raise their children. It is no surprise to most families that the family and children are under assault in our society and culture today, and Texas [...]

Family Freedom Project Champions Bill to Protect Families From CPS Overreach

2023-03-13T20:15:24+00:00

Families matter, and every day they are threatened by entities that operate in the shadows and without accountability. Because family and freedom should come first, we have filed a Child Protective Services (CPS) bill that, if passed, will enforce greater accountability standards on CPS.  While CPS plays a necessary role in society, they all too often function with an egregious lack of accountability. This omnibus bill was filed by Rep. James Frank as HB 730. It packages together several measures into one bill, making it an effective tool to bring about the greatest possible change. This bill will tackle [...]
