UPDATE: Amicus Curiae Brief filed January 4, 2024, in the U.S. Supreme Court. ParentsUSA is supporting John and Jane Parents 1; John Parent 2 in their Petition for Certiorari seeking elimination of the "Parental Preclusion Policy" of the Montgomery County (Md.) Board of Education that "requires school employees to hide from parents that their child is transitioning gender at school if, in the child’s or the school’s estimation, the parents will not be 'supportive' enough of the transition. Petitioner Parents claim this 'Parental Preclusion Policy' violates their fundamental rights to direct the care and upbringing of their children." Petition for Certiorari, No. 23-601. ParentsUSA agrees that no provider of services to children ever should hide any information from parents. Not schools, not sports leagues, not martial arts studios, not dance academies, not doctors or dentists. No one. No matter the topic or issue. If the claim is that information must be hidden from parents or parents must be told lies to protect a child, then the situation must be reported to law enforcement or child protective services where investigative powers and due process (presumably) will protect the child and the rights of the parents.
UPDATE: Currently pending in the Georgia Supreme Court, the appeal in Crary vs. Clautice, Case No. S24A0004. ParentsUSA represents the mother who is seeking, as was done successfully in the Idaho Supreme Court (recall, ParentsUSA submitted the only Amicus Curiae brief), to strike the Georgia Grandparent Visitation Statute as facially unconstitutional and unconstitutional as applied. *ParentsUSA went to court on behalf of this young mother and the Judge agreed with the arguments made and vacated and set aside the legally insufficient grandparent visitation order that had the grandmother having more time with the mother's child than did the mother! Although this mother is out from under the intrusive grandparent visitation order, she, with ParentsUSA doing the legal work pro bono, seeks to benefit other parents and children in Georgia by a ruling striking the Grandparent Visitation Statute as unconstitutional or, minimally, causing restrictions on the quality and sufficiency of the evidence trial courts must have before granting grandparent visitation.
YOUR donations support the work of ParentsUSA for all parents and their children. Thank you!
Your one-time or recurring donation allows us to provide legal services in defense of parents unjustly charged with crimes such as Georgia Mom, Melissa Henderson (as seen on The Dr. Phil Show), charged with Reckless Conduct for having her nearly 15-year old, along with her other two pre-teens, care for the younger children (which ended, after 2 1/2 years of our defense, with the Judge granting our motion to quash the criminal charges) and Susan Terrillion charged with “Child Endangerment” after police received a call about her 9-year old walking their dog while she went to get food “To-Go” from a restaurant while on vacation in Delaware (the charges were dismissed within days after our attorney "entered an appearance on her behalf" showing she was going to fight the charges), to support parents in the appellate courts such as the Evans, who battled in the Idaho Supreme Court merely to allow them, "fit parents" as the trial court found them to be, to insulate their three daughters from toxic family members which prompted ParentsUSA to file its "Friend of the Court" Amicus Curiae Brief ending with the Idaho Supreme Court striking the Idaho statute as "facially unconstitutional."
ParentsUSA also has filed Amicus Curiae Briefs in the U. S. Supreme Court, the First Circuit U. S. Court of Appeals, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, and the Georgia Supreme Court on behalf of fit parents, and to advise and to guide legislators in several states . . . and more!
ParentsUSA supports fit parents making their own parenting decisions for their children, without hurting them, as is allowed by U. S. Supreme Court decisions - but which rights under the U. S. Constitution are infringed time after time across the USA! As the collective voice of parents, ParentsUSA will use the economic and political power derived from the parents who support our work for and to serve parents and their children. Please donate today.
