This past Tuesday, August 22, Monmouth University released a much-anticipated pollto find out where New Jerseyans stand on the issue of parental notification of a child’s gender identity at school and whether they support this radical ideology in the classrooms and curriculum of young children.
It was a day of reckoning of sorts for The Murphy Administration, his NJ Department of Education, and legislative democrats. They had to face the fact that their agenda to keep parents in the dark and deceive children regarding the biological realities of their own bodies is NOT supported by the vast majority of New Jersey adults. It’s not even close!
NJTV Spotlight News interviewed Director of Advocacy Shawn Hyland, on our reaction to this poll, “It is not surprising that the majority of New Jerseyans believe that if a child wants to access the sports teams, the locker rooms, the bathrooms, and the sex education classes of the opposite sex, their parent should be notified. This is not surprising. This is common sense.”
The day before the poll was released, legislators from District 10 in Ocean County, Senator Holzapfel (R), Assemblyman McGuckin (R), and Assemblyman Catalano (R) called on the Legislature to come back for a special session to pass their bill that would require school districts to report matters involving a student’s gender, and mental and physical health to their parent.
I am also excited to share with you that this week, in partnership with the Pacific Justice Institute, we submitted three separate motions to intervene in the Attorney General’s cases against the Marlboro, Middletown, and Manalapan Boards of Education. We will defend parental rights statewide as these cases will set a precedent that will impact families in other districts. Our team covets your prayers and financial support as we take this legal action.
“It’s ridiculous that while criminals are breaking into homes and stealing cars out of our driveways, the State attorney general continues to focus on identity politics. This lawsuit is an obstruction of parental rights. Schools should have the ability to implement policies that parents and teachers feel are appropriate for their children. Governor Murphy and the attorney general should not be standing in their way.”
