GA Rep wants to make Gender Transition Surgery for Minors a Felony

Georgia State Representative Ginny Ehrhart is stepping out of the politically correct norm and proposes making it a felony for doctors to perform gender transition surgeries on minors. In addition to the gender transition, it would also ban performing mastectomy, vasectomy, castration, genital mutilation, puberty-blocking drugs, and cross-sex hormone therapy.

“The removal of otherwise healthy or non-diseased body parts from minor children would also be prohibited,” she said via press release.

AJC reports: 

State Rep. Ginny Ehrhart, R-Powder Springs, said the legislation aims to protect children from having irreversible procedures done when they are young. Current law requires a parent to consent to surgery or for a minor to be prescribed medication.

While the bill is still being drafted, Ehrhart said Georgia medical providers who perform surgeries or administer or prescribe medications that assist minors with gender transition could be charged with a felony. The legislation would not affect doctors working with adults who seek to undergo gender transition.

“We’re talking about children that can’t get a tattoo or smoke a cigar or a cigarette in the state of Georgia but can be castrated and get sterilized,” Ehrhart declared, and she's right! These kids cannot even buy tobacco or a lottery ticket, but they're being allowed to get life altering surgeries performed. Surgeries that will have life-long effects on them, both mentally and physically.

Georgia Equality (an LGBTQ rights organization) Executive Director Jeff Graham has called Ehrhart's proposal "shameful," and slammed her for even suggesting that the current laws need amended.

“This legislation would criminalize decisions that are made carefully within families in consultation with medical professionals and mental health professionals,” Graham said sharply, “Supporting children in recognizing their gender identity is not only humane, it saves lives and strengthens families.”

In her press release, Ehrhart included quotes from an Atlanta-based pediatric endocrinologist, Dr. Quentin Van Meter, who said the proposal is needed to protect children from “medical experimentation based on wishful social theory.”

“These children are suffering from a psychological condition without biologic basis,” he said. “Using the bludgeon of threatened suicide as justification is first of all cruel, and secondly, not supported by valid published studies.”

I agree with Ehrhart. If the person is too young to even buy tobacco or alcohol then what makes people think that their underdeveloped brains should be allowed to make such serious medical decisions?

Female Lawmaker Introduces Bill to Force Vasectomies at Age 50 or After Third Child

For the last few years, all I have seen I seen is "#MeToo" and "my body, my choice." Women have marched and preached that men should not be able to make laws regarding women's bodies because they do not have a uterus.

For one, that is grossly wrong. A person does not have to have a uterus to know that abortion is murder and murder is wrong. For women to march for the "right" to murder their unborn children is beyond me. Continue reading…
