The right to raise your child as you see fit is paramount to the tenants of both the United States Constitution and the rights afforded to parents in the Texas Family Code. This has been affirmed by every court at every level. From the U.S. Supreme Court to the local district and county courts in this nation. In Texas, as long as a parent is able to act in the best interests of their child then they are deemed free to do so.
Now, Texas is saying that they know a child better and that the government, who does not know the child at all, has not birthed, loved, attended a doctor visit, raised or ever even acted as a caretaker for the child is a better decision-maker about a trans child than the parents who have loved the child from the day they were born. Every tear, every hurt feeling, every sniffle, every homework assignment, every struggle, every desire, and every moment of their decision-making for their child can now be reversed by a governmental agency, CPS.
