9th Circuit Court Anti-Parent Decision Stirs Congress

On 16Nov, the House passed resolution H. Res. 547 [Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA)] denouncing the 9th Circuit ruling on 2Nov that parents’ fundamental right to control the upbringing of their children “does not extend beyond the threshold of the school door,” and that a public school has the right to provide students with “whatever information it wishes to provide, sexual or otherwise.”

The vote was 320-91. No Republicans voted against this resolution, which has no practical effect except to alert parents to the attack on parental rights.
