Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement:
"Judge O'Connor's opinion is a win for parental rights and the privacy of schoolchildren nationwide, and a win for Texas and twelve other states which sued the administration over its coercive bathroom policy. The Obama administration went far beyond the limits of its constitutional and statutory authority to rewrite laws legally adopted by Congress. These federal agencies are attempting to use the bully pulpit to strip parents and local school districts of the right to provide a safe learning environment for their children by forcing them to adopt controversial shower and bathroom policies.
"I encourage parents in every school district in America to demand that their local school boards not sacrifice the privacy and safety of their children because of this administration's pursuit of political correctness.
"If the American people do not speak up now on an issue like this, there's no limit to what President Obama's administration, or future liberal presidents, will be emboldened to do," Perkins concluded.
