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.

Teacher in Ireland imprisoned for refusing to use ‘gender-neutral’ pronouns

An Irish teacher’s fight against the woke masses has landed him in jail. Enoch Burke allegedly was initially suspended on full pay from the Wilson’s Hospital School temporarily, after refusing a request from the principal to address a transgender student by “they” instead of “he,” according to Irish outlet Independent.ie.

Burke is an evangelical Christian who teaches at Wilson’s Hospital School, a high school that is run by the Church of Ireland. It is co-ed and caters to boarding and day students.

Burke continued to show up to school in order to teach, despite his suspension. As a result, the boarding school got an interlocutory injunction restraining order against him, barring him from coming in the building.

Still, Burke showed up every day to work. Then, “the school’s board of management filed a further application, and on Friday, Justice Miriam O’Regan ordered Burke to be arrested and brought into court” reports National Review.

In court, Burke continued to insist on showing up to school teach, saying, “I love my school. I am here today because I would not call a boy a girl,” the outlet reported.

Not going to work and teaching “is not something I will do. It is in violation of my conscience,” Burke added, claiming his suspension was invalid and that he would’ve had to “commit an act of gross misconduct” for it to be justified, according to the outlet.

“It is reprehensible that anyone’s religious beliefs could be taken as a ground for misconduct or gross misconduct,” Burke said. “Were I to obey the order of the board of management and the order of the court, I would have to accept that sticking by my belief in male and female is wrong.”

“It is not something I will do. It is in violation of my conscience,” he added, saying, “Were I to go into the school and bow to something I know to be manifestly wrong, it would be a shame and a disgrace on my part.”

Justice Michael Quinn ordered Burke be committed to Mountjoy Prison and remain there indefinitely “until he purges his contempt or until further order of this court.”

Burke refused to comply with the court’s order after the judge’s decision, saying, “I cannot purge my contempt by holding my Christian beliefs in contempt.”
