The Bathroom Bill Law Stands Again In Pennsylvania

07.27.18 | Sarah Harnisch

A major ruling last night has shocked pro-family groups across the state.

For the second time, a federal appeals court has denied a request to hear a challenge to the Boyertown School District's policy allowing transgendered students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their chosen gender.

12 justices ruled the policy did not violate students' rights to privacy.

 

The case was brought about by the Christian legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom.

The ACLU said "this sends a powerful message that school districts are protecting transgendered students from discrimination."

Alliance Defending Freedom says it's a loss for every student who feels uncomfortable sharing a bathroom with the opposite sex.

They have until August 9th to ask for a rehearing.
