MFI and ADF Considering Appeal in Liam Morrison’s Case

Dear Friend of the Family, 

We received word yesterday that the First Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled against Liam Morrison, the brave 7th-grade student who was sent home from school last year for daring to wear a shirt that stated “There Are Only Two Genders.” 

This case is about much more than a t-shirt. The court’s decision is not only a threat to the free speech rights of public school students across the country, but a threat to basic biological truths. By holding that Liam could not “deny the self-conceptions of other students,” this decision paves the way for schools to silence all dissent against the radical agendas they are pushing on students like Liam. Although there was no evidence that Liam’s message caused a disruption at school, the court held that the possibility that some students might suffer psychological distress from his shirt was enough to justify censoring him. 

While we are disappointed in this decision, we aren’t done fighting yet. Along with our partners at Alliance Defending Freedom, we are reviewing all legal options, including appealing to the United States Supreme Court. Please pray for continued strength for Liam and his family, as well as wisdom for our legal team.

As MFI’s Fatherlessness Report shows, children from single-parent homes, many without fathers, are at a greater risk of academic underachievement, youthful idleness, teen parenthood, and
