New Senate bill pushes back on AG Garland, ensures protection of parental rights

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Matt Sharp regarding the Parents’ Bill of Rights Act, introduced by U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley Wednesday, designed to ensure parents remain free to direct the upbringing, care, and education of their children:

“A government with unchecked power to intrude on parental rights can easily become a threat to everyone’s freedom. Sen. Hawley’s bill helps protect the right of parents to raise and educate their children consistent with their beliefs and values. In light of the recent threats to parental rights from Attorney General Merrick Garland and school boards across the country, it is important that Congress pass laws that safeguard the right of parents to make decisions regarding their children. We commend Sen. Hawley for introducing this timely legislation, and we urge Congress to enact these protections so parents can continue to decide what is best for their children.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.
