FFP Files Brief at the Supreme Court of Texas Defending Parental Rights and the Well-being of TX Children
LUBBOCK, TX – Family Freedom Project’s filed an Amicus Curiae Brief filed in the Loe v. Texas case before the Supreme Court of Texas.
Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott, restricting chemical and surgical gender transition procedures on minors. When a district court in Travis County issued an injunction to prevent the state from enforcing SB 14, the Texas Attorney General’s office swiftly countered by filing an emergency appeal directly to the Supreme Court of Texas (SCOTX). This move automatically halted the order from the trial judge, which had blocked the law. SCOTX is now considering the case.
Jeremy Newman, VP of Policy at the Family Freedom Project, released the following statement about Loe v. Texas.
“We absolutely support the fundamental right of parents to make decisions for their children. One hundred years of legal precedent also establishes beyond debate that parents do not have the right to make decisions that significantly and irreversibly damage their child’s health and well-being through experimental medical procedures. Family Freedom Project’s role in this lawsuit is to show a clear path to the courts for how SB 14 can be upheld to protect children without weakening the constitutional rights of parents.”
