CPS permanently removed a child from Christian parents who would not affirm transgenderism. Heritage Defense Foundation just filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court to fight for their parental rights, and for yours.
These Christian parents from Indiana refused to recognize their teenage son’s “transition” to a girl, so someone reported them to CPS. Originally, CPS found that the child was being harmed by the parents. Later, however, CPS dropped the charges and specifically determined that the parents were not abusive or neglectful. Legally speaking, they were “fit” parents. Yet CPS still kept custody of the child until he became an adult.
Indiana courts ruled in favor of CPS, and the case is now being appealed to the United States Supreme Court for violations of parental rights, freedom of speech, and religious liberties.
While this family are not members of Heritage Defense, Heritage Defense Foundation got involved because this case could set a precedent for all parents across the U.S.
For now, we are simply asking the Court to hear the case. If it agrees to, we will have an opportunity to file another brief urging the Court to rule in favor of parental rights.
As we say in our brief, “Without some misconduct or voluntary invitation on the part of parents, the state may not interfere with the parents’ divinely bestowed jurisdiction.”
The outcome of this case could have far reaching effects on parental rights nationwide. Please pray that the Court would take the case and issue a just ruling.
The case is M.C. and J.C. v. Indiana Department of Child Services.
