Dr. David Parker
Dr. David Parker is a Judeo-Christian father and parental rights advocate and litigant.

Since 2005, he has been defending his God-given parental rights and religious liberty to guide the moral upbringing of his two young sons in the Lexington Public School. Lexington Public Schools is aggressively pursuing young impressionable children to introduce, normalize, validate, and celebrate homosexuality, gay marriage, and transgenderism behind the backs of parents and against the will of the parents. In response, Dr Parker filed a lawsuit seeking the protection of his constitutional rights in 2005. His case is currently under appeal in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Dr. Parker is a medicinal chemist who has worked in the pharmaceutical industry since 1990. He earned a Chemistry/Biology/Physics B.S at University of Delaware, Organic Chemistry Ph.D. at Indiana University, and did his postdoctoral work at Columbia University under a National Institute of Health award Fellowship.
