It's the nightmare that every parent fears.... the state comes and takes your child away from you.
Why? Because you refused to consent to your teenage child receiving sex-change therapies or having a sex-change operation!
The same child who is not old enough to VOTE, or serve in the military, or drink alcohol, or donate blood, or play the lottery, or buy cigarettes, or consent to sex with someone over 18, or get their ears pierced or a tattoo, or possibly even drive a car CAN HAVE A LIFE-ALTERING SEX CHANGE OPERATION WITHOUT PARENTAL KNOWLEDGE OR CONSENT!
It happened last year in Ohio. Parents lost custody of their child because they didn't agree with a medical determination for a sex change for their son. Even worse. According to Heritage Foundation, "the county prosecutor charged them with abuse and neglect."
And that was BEFORE the Equality Act, which will vacate parental rights in favor of the LGBT agenda. In an Op-Ed in The Hill, Rep. Vickie Hartzler (R-MO) highlighted this shocking reality, noting that under the Equality Act:
"Parents who dare to oppose doctors performing life altering surgical procedures on their children or using cancer drugs—suspected of causing lasting health problems—on kids without cancer, will be considered abusive and neglectful."
Physicians will have it bad as well, according to Hartzler:
"...Physicians are only given one option: affirm a child’s questioning. In other words, doctors will be forced to perform double mastectomies on healthy 13-year-old girls, and pediatric endocrinologists will have to provide hormone blockers like Lupron to kids experiencing gender dysphoria or be charged with “discrimination.”
We can't get complacent. LGBT activists are using THIS MONTH to build grassroots momentum for the Equality Act, and it's working. Taylor Swift has over 150,000 petition signers. Every week, more and more businesses get on board the Equality Act push.
If concerned citizens don't take an active stand in defense of our religious liberties and against the oppressive "Equality Act," 'we will lose this battle and lose our faith, our families and our nation.
+ + TAKE ACTION TODAY!
Grassfire has identified the 12 GOP Senators LGBT activists are targeting. We want to start delivering petitions to these senators. But as of this morning, we are still well short of our 20,000 goal. As soon as we reach 20,000, we will start HAND-DELIVERING petitions to these vulnerable GOP Senators -- beginning with Sen. Alexander.
If you oppose the anti-faith Equality Act and want your name included in this petition, here's what you need to do...
(We included the complete petition language at the end of this message.)
Thanks for taking action!
P.S. Because you are already a Grassfire team member, we will include you on the petition with ONE CLICK. After you sign, please consider faxing Congress on this issue. Go here to sign:
THE PETITION STATES:
I oppose the wrongly-named "Equality Act" -- a very dangerous bill that pushes a radical LGBT agenda while essentially criminalizing Christian beliefs. This bill would strip away religious liberties and put people of faith on the wrong side of the law. It also would force our churches and Christian businesses and schools to conform to the radical LGBT agenda. I urge you to oppose the so-called Equality Act.
