Today, First Focus Campaign for Children sent a letter to Senator Tim Scott and Representative Virginia Foxx, authors of the Families’ Rights and Responsibilities Act (S. 3571/H.R. 6934) to express our strong opposition to the bill.

Excerpt from the letter:

By definition, parents and families are fundamental to the upbringing, education, and well-being of children. This is a given. Furthermore, as the legislation’s findings highlight, the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld parents’ rights in various decisions. For instance, in Troxel v. Granville, 530 U.S. 57 (2000), the Supreme Court concluded “the interest of parents” to be “perhaps the oldest of the fundamental liberty interests recognized by this Court.”
