(Natural News) A controversial bill was recently approved by a California Senate committee that will set up a fund for transgender medical interventions and operations that can cause sterility in children.
Although the Health Committee chair said late last month that the measure would not be considered this year, pressure from transgender activists led to the revival of the bill. AB 2218, or The Transgender Wellness and Equity Fund, ultimately passed in a 7 to 1 vote. The bill will allow the funds to be used to pay for puberty-blocking drugs, double mastectomies, castrations, and cross-sex hormones. All of these interventions have been identified in a statement by the American College of Pediatrics as causing sterilization in children.
The bill says the money is intended to provide grants to transgender-led hospitals, clinics and other medical providers who offer “gender-affirming health care services.”
The author of the bill, Assemblyman Miguel Santiago, said that nothing in the bill talks about sterilizing kids, and some lawmakers have complained that they have received a high volume of phone calls begging them not to support legislation that funds the sterilization of children. Although supporters of the bill have denied the connection to sterility, its mention of funding services such as gender reassignment surgery and hormone therapy using puberty-blocking drugs indicates otherwise.
A taxpayer-funded study by the National Institutes of Health into the progression of hormonal drugs warns parents in its consent form that taking the medication “will likely lead to infertility.” According to the consent form, “If your child starts puberty blockers in the earliest stages of puberty, and then goes on to gender affirming hormones, they will not develop sperm or eggs. This means they will not be able to have biological children.”
Experts speak out against the bill
California endocrinologist Dr. Michael Laidlaw told Breitbart News that studies have shown most children who have been given puberty blockers have gone on to wrong-sex or cross-sex hormones and sex reassignment surgery. He said all those who started with the blockers and moved on to cross-sex hormones became infertile, while those who had their gonads removed were sterilized.
Christian leader and psychologist Dr. James Dobson expressed his concerns about the bill in a statement to Breitbart News: “I’ll say exactly what this bill supports: gender mutilation and sterilization. Proponents of this bill will deny the truth — in fact, they already have. They insist that since the bill doesn’t use the word ‘sterilization,’ there is no harm and no foul. Rubbish!”
He called this experimentation on vulnerable people “morally repugnant” and said, “These hurting individuals need our compassion and care — not a cocktail of drugs and disfiguring surgeries that could well cause irreversible harm to their bodies. Many of them, he pointed out, are still in grade school.
The bill has now made its way to the Senate Appropriations Committee and could end up on the Senate floor by the end of the month. If it is approved, it is believed that Governor Gavin Newsom will sign it into law.
Some experts have found evidence that there is a transgender “peer contagion” going on right now fueled by social media and that many of these young people later regret the irreversible steps they took to fit into the trend. Unfortunately, some doctors and therapists are encouraging young people who express attraction to people of the same sex to “transition,” telling them that they may have been “born in the wrong body” rather than entertaining the idea that they might merely be gay or bisexual.
How could anyone support a bill that allows children, adolescents and adults to be mutilated by their doctors through genital amputations and double mastectomies? The fact that this actually passed by a margin of 7 to 1 tells you everything you need to know about the state of California right now.
