In re A.C., No. 22A-JC-49, __ N.E.3d __ (Ind. Ct. App., Oct. 21, 2022).
Transgender child’s continued removal is not contrary to the CHINS-6 statute and does not violate the parents’ constitutional rights to the care, custody, and control of child or to their rights to the free exercise of religion. Parents have the right to exercise their religious beliefs, but they do not have the right to exercise them in a manner that causes physical or emotional harm to child. Trial court’s temporary restriction on the discussion of child’s transgender identity outside of family therapy does not violate the parents’ free speech rights.
