On Wednesday, the Republican Study Committee (RSC), the largest Republican caucus and a majority of the House Republican conference, endorsed Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s groundbreaking and first-in-the-nation legislation, the Protect Children’s Innocence Act, announcing its inclusion in RSC’s FY 2024 Budget Proposal.
Congresswoman Greene’s bill will make it illegal to perform any “gender-affirming” care on minors. This includes puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and sex-change surgeries. Children who are not allowed to drive, vote, or see an R-rated movie should not be allowed to make life-altering decisions that will forever alter their precious bodies.
America’s children are being systematically indoctrinated with perverse gender ideology by teachers, mental health counselors, and on social media platforms. President Biden’s Assistant Secretary of Health, “Rachel” Levine, even called for the government to “empower kids to go on puberty blockers and obtain sex-reassignment surgery.”
Last summer, Boston Children’s Hospital released videos promoting gender dysphoria and offering “gender-affirming care” to minors, including sterilization, castration, and mutilation.
“Gender-affirming care” is the performance of any surgery for the purpose of changing the body of an individual to correspond to a sex that differs from their biological sex.
What this bill does:
- Charges any person who knowingly performed gender-affirming care on a minor with a Class C Felony (10 to 25 years in prison or maximum $250,000 fine).
- Prohibits all taxpayer-funded gender-affirming care.
- Prohibits institutions of higher education from providing instruction on gender-affirming care.
- Deems aliens who have performed gender-affirming care on a minor as ineligible to receive visas or be admitted to the United States.
With today’s endorsement of the Protect Children’s Innocence Act, the Republican Study Committee takes a strong stand against the harmful indoctrination and mutilation of America’s children.
