White House Attacks Texas & Other GOP States For Calling Transgender Surgeries For Kids ‘Abuse’

While the world implodes, the White House once again managed to find time to attack states that are trying to protect kids from the transgender agenda. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) and Governor Greg Abbott (R), like a lot of leaders, see the Left’s grip on our children and have taken concrete steps to address it. Not surprisingly, that hasn’t sat well with the most radical transgender activist in America: Joe Biden.

Fresh off of his radioactive “gender-fluid” pick for the Department of Energy, the president continued his historic attack on biological gender by condemning Texas’s decision to investigate anyone steering minors toward transgender hormones or treatment. “Because the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is responsible for protecting children from abuse,” Abbott wrote, “I hereby direct your agency to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation of any reported instances of these abusive procedures in the State of Texas. To protect Texas children from abuse, DFPS and all other state agencies must follow the law as explained in OAG Opinion No. KP-0401.”

The governor goes on to explain that it’s already against the law to subject children in Texas to a wide variety of elective gender transition surgeries, including those that can cause sterilization, mastectomies, or the removal of “otherwise healthy body parts.” It’s time to enforce those rules, he insisted.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki blasted Texas’s directive, insisting that it’s “designed to target and attack the kids who need support the most.” “LGBTQI+ students are already vulnerable to bullying and violence just for being themselves,” Psaki said. “This isn’t an isolated action, as evidenced by multiple states pursuing this. We’re seeing Republican leaders take actions to regulate what students can or cannot read, what they can or cannot learn and, most troubling, who they can or cannot be.”

Paxton rejected Psaki’s spin, explaining that he and his team did their due diligence on this — and designating the treatments as “child abuse” is entirely keeping with the opinion of several medical experts, including the American College of Pediatricians. Look, he explained on “Washington Watch,” “Our job is very simple. We’re not making law. We were basically just exposing what the law is. We spent literally hundreds of hours doing the research on this. And it’s pretty clear in our laws at least that if you sterilize a child — whether it’s through physical means or whether it’s through some type of chemical means — that’s child abuse in Texas. And it’s wrong.”

Like other states, Texas has come to the conclusion that if minor children aren’t allowed to get tattoos or a driver’s license until they’re of a certain age, why allow them to move forward with treatments that are even more dangerous? “It’s pretty insane” what the far-Left is pushing, Paxton agreed. “In most other medical procedures that have a significant impact, you have to be at least 21. And so for something like this, it’s irreparable. It causes harm that cannot be undone. It seems to me that Texas has gotten it right that these children need to be protected until they can make their own decision. And as you know, [as many as 89 percent of these young people] do change [their minds]. And a lot of others regret it down the road.” But by then, he laments, “the genie’s out of the bottle. You can’t fix what’s been done.”

Fortunately for Paxton and Abbott, the state’s voters have their backs. “Most Texans are pretty reasonable,” he said. And besides, “This is the law. If you want to change [that], change the legislature and lobby the state. My job is to tell people what the law is when I’m asked. And I think the Texas legislature got it right. I think most Texans think the legislature got it right.”

HD Editor’s Note: Why Is This News Biblically Relevant?

South Carolina Rep. Fred Deutsch, in 2020, attempted to pass a bill protecting children from dangerous sex transition surgeries called the “The Vulnerable Child Protection Act.”

Deutsch stated his belief that “irreversible and experimental surgical and chemical interference with a child’s sexual development is morally indefensible.”

Although he was, sadly, unsuccessful in getting this bill passed in the state, his startling words are certainly worth recognizing.

“To me, that’s a crime against humanity when these procedures are done by these so-called doctors,” he insisted. “You know, I’m the son of a Holocaust survivor. I’ve had family members killed in Auschwitz. And I’ve seen the pictures of the bizarre medical experiments. I don’t want that to happen to our kids. And that’s what’s going on right now.”

Franklin Graham in a interview with Tony Perkins discussed the legislation passed in Arkansas to protect children from dangerous gender mutilating surgeries.

“God made us male and female; two men can’t make a child, two women can’t make a child; it takes a male and a female. That’s the way God made us and created us,” Rev. Graham asserted. “For someone to come along and say you can change that if you want… Well, you better talk to God about that because we’re on very thin ice when we start messing with the way God made us and created us.”

“What’s happening, we see, is just wicked. To take a child and try to convince them that they can change and be a girl, they can change and be a boy, and we can give you drugs, and you can have surgery and all of these things… a child can’t comprehend that, and once you start down this path you can’t reverse it,” Rev. Graham said in the interview. “It’s just a wicked thing, and we just need to pray that the church will stand.”

“We need to stand for truth, we need to stand for God’s Word, and we need to stand behind these legislators and the governors, and others that are willing to sign bills,” he urged.

Franklin Graham Establishes ‘Billy Graham Defense Fund’ To Protect Gospel Outreach In The UK

"We’re going to use these funds that came from this battle against cancel culture to help other Christians who may be threatened into silence," he announced. "This is a victory, not just for us, but for all Christians and churches across the UK."

Hamas Led The Charge On October 7th, But Islam Motivated Hamas

The Hamas attack does not reflect the actions of most Muslims, but it does reflect the Quran. All ideas are not equal. Adolf Hitler’s ideas were not as noble as those of Florence Nightingale. And Islam is not just another version of Christianity. They are as different as black and white, good and evil.
