Texas Governor seeks investigations of doctors who enable gender transition surgeries for children

Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, a Republican, has ordered the Texas Department of Family and Protective services (DFPS) to investigate the children and doctors who enable and approve gender-transition surgeries for children.

Abbott’s measure comes after DFPS confirmed that gender-transition surgery on children constitutes as child abuse, after Abbot had asked the department to look into, and make a determination on the matter last August.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton also said earlier this week that gender-transition procedures, including hormone therapy, puberty blockers and sex reassignment procedures, are abuse under existing Texas law.

On Tuesday, Abbott wrote in a letter to DFPS directing it to “conduct a prompt and thorough investigation of any reported instances of these abusive procedures in the State of Texas.”

The governor’s letter states that the attorney general’s opinion “makes clear, it is already against the law to subject Texas children to a wide variety of elective procedures for gender transitioning, including reassignment surgeries that can cause sterilization, mastectomies, removals of otherwise health body parts, and administration of puberty-blocking drugs or supraphysiologic doses of testosterone or estrogen.”

“Texas law imposes reporting requirements upon all licensed professionals who have direct contact with children who may be subject to such abuse, including doctors, nurses, and teachers, and provides criminal penalties for failure to report such child abuse.” Abbott wrote.

The letter was also sent to other Texas agencies, including the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, the Texas Medical Board and the Texas Education Agency.

When the determination was made by DFPS commissioner Jaime Masters in August, the letter to Abbott stated, “Genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse. This surgical procedure physically alters a child’s genitalia for non-medical purposes potentially inflicting irreversible harm to children’s bodies.”

“Masters cited Section 261 of the Texas Family Code that prohibits parents from imposing substantial physical harm onto their children” reports National Review. “The commissioner added at the time that anyone who believes a child has undergone gender-transition surgery must report it to the DFPS and that all allegations involving the procedure on minors will be taken seriously and investigated.”

    We are a male or female at the time of conception and doctors, nurses, or others who mess with making changes in children’s bodies are nothing but criminals. In my way of looking
    at such is nothing but money hunger and the same criminals would even kill the child for enough money. Parents who would allow this to be done to their child are no better than the ones who performed such a crime. They are all going to have to face Jesus Christ at His return!

    Gender transition should be an option as an adult, not a kid. Parents need to stop abusing their kids in name of their political views.

Virginia Education Committee Recommends ‘Gender Identity’ in Elementary School Curriculum

the Daily Caller obtained a copy of recommendations that a Virginia public school district would like to include in its curricula that begins in fourth grade. Among the recommendations from three transgender advocates are to include gender identity.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports:

The Family Life Education Curriculum Advisory Committee plans to recommend that the Fairfax County Public School Board include “gender identity in elementary [Family Life Education]” programming and develop “inclusive curriculum” for sex education for all students during the 2022-2023 school year. The committee specifically called for the “inclusion of the gender spectrum in the elementary” and 10th-grade curricula, according to the recommendations draft.

“The committee recommends the addition of gender to the objective [of a grade 10 lesson plan] to clarify that both sexuality and gender are currently included in the lesson instruction,” the draft reads.

The board also recommends that the school district adopt “gender combined instruction” for sex education lessons on “human growth and development” beginning in fourth grade. Gendered health classes reportedly affirm a “rigid binary based on anatomy,” according to the draft.

“When students are separated by boys and girls, it affirms a rigid binary based on anatomy,” the draft reads. “The practice of segregating students by gender is not inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, intersex, and gender diverse students.”
