California’s cartoon villain governor Gavin Newsom (D) is embracing his state’s reputation as a bastion of depravity with a new law that declares California a “sanctuary” for young children with gender dysphoria, or so-called “trans youth.”
The disturbing law would effectively allow children from other states to receive “gender-affirming care” without parental consent, the Post Millennial reported.
Newsom declares California a groomer “sanctuary”
It’s a clear attempt by Newsom, who is rumored to have 2024 aspirations, to draw a contrast between California and red states that have sought to restrict so-called “gender affirming care,” the progressive left’s Orwellian term for the bodily mutilation of children with gender dysphoria.
“Parents know what’s best for their kids, and they should be able to make decisions around the health of their children without fear,” Newsom said.
California will now prohibit courts from weighing the “taking or retention” of a child from a person with legal custody if it is to obtain “gender-affirming health care or mental health care,” the law says.
The law further states that California can claim “temporary emergency jurisdiction” over a child who is “unable to obtain” so-called gender-affirming care.
The law further directs California law enforcement not to cooperate with prosecutions of people who facilitate “gender-affirming care” in violation of the laws of another state, and it blocks doctors from sharing medical information about a child patient receiving such “care,” even if a subpoena is in play.
The bill’s author, Scott Wiener (D), is a controversial character who previously pushed successfully for a law that lowered criminal penalties for knowingly giving a person HIV during sex. He acknowledged that his latest law tests constitutional limits by directing California to snub the laws of other states.
“We may have limits under the U.S. Constitution, but we are going to go right up to the edge of what we’re able to do to protect them and say, ‘Unless we are absolutely forced to send you back, we are not going to send you back,’” he said.
A coalition of parental rights groups previously spoke out against SB107, warning it “violates the fundamental rights of parents while increasing
the risk of irreversible harm to America’s children.”
If anything, kids need a “sanctuary” from creepy ideologues who want to mess with their minds and their bodies. Take a step back, Governor Hair Gel.
