Today, President Biden signed an executive order further committing his administration to advancing the transgender agenda. Among other dictates, the order directs the Departments of Health and Human Services and Education to draw up policies countering state laws which prohibit child sex changes and protect girls’ sports. The order also seeks ways for the administration to ban what it terms “conversion therapy.”
In response, Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement blasting the president’s action:
“While Joe Biden may have played coy during his campaign two years ago, he has left no doubt since taking office that he fully supports sex changes for kids. And with his executive order today, Biden has also made clear he plans to impose his view on the rest of the country, by any means possible.
“One obvious intention of this order is to seek ways to punish states that are protecting children from experimental and dangerous sex-change ‘treatments’ as well as preserving girls’ athletics and private spaces. Never mind that all these efforts have the overwhelming support of voters; the woke Left cannot abide such democratic lawmaking. Instead, the Biden administration will try to undermine these popular laws however possible.
“It is also ironic to see this executive order condemn ‘conversion therapy’ when, in fact, that is exactly what it is promoting. What the administration really wants is to lock mentally distressed children into the sex-change process and criminalize any attempts to help them feel comfortable in their own bodies. This isn’t just bad healthcare; it’s also a morally reprehensible effort to appease radical ideologues and increase Big Pharma profits at the expense of vulnerable kids who cannot adequately consent to the procedures being pushed on them.
“This disgraceful action by President Biden will only serve to further hurt children and tear families apart. Leaders in Congress and the states must continue to vigorously oppose this administration’s dangerous policies in every way they can.”
