The radicalism of the transgender movement is boundless. Look no further than California, where Gov. Gavin Newsom may soon sign a bill that would take children away from parents who disagree with their child’s chosen gender identity. The message is clear: Support your child’s sex change, or lose your child.
The bill in question passed the California Assembly on September 8 by an overwhelming margin of 57 to 16. It previously passed the California Senate. Named the “Transgender, Gender-Diverse, and Intersex Youth Empowerment Act,” a more accurate title is the “No Freedom For Families And Forced Sex Changes for Children” Act. This news story describes what the bill would do:
“Under the proposed law, parents who fail to acknowledge and support their child’s gender transition could face potential consequences, including the loss of custody rights to another parent or even the state itself.”
Will Gov. Newson sign this bill? Not if he’s honest. Gov. Newsom recently said that California is “a place where families — not political fanatics — have the freedom to decide what’s right for them.” He further declared that “there is no state in America that supports local control and parental engagement like the state of California.” Yet this radical legislation is the opposite of parental freedom and engagement. It will destroy parents’ fundamental rights, to say nothing of children’s physical and mental health.
Transgender activists will brook no dissent in their campaign to control America’s children, not even a child’s own parents. Gov. Newsom should realize that the right call is obvious: Parents who defend their child should be praised, not punished by having their child ripped away.
