Lawmakers in 19 states to push for ‘gender-affirming care’ mandates

State Sen. Scott Weiner (CA) leads lawmakers in 19 states to push for ‘gender-affirming care’ mandates

While America has been distracted by the release of a Supreme Court draft concerning the possible demise of Roe v. Wade, lawmakers in several states have been busy working on a way to essentially mandate “gender affirming care” for transgender children by drafting template legislation based on a bill already introduced in California.

The multi-state effort is the brainchild of state Sen. Scott Wiener, a homosexual politician representing San Francisco — aka the 12th congressional district represented by Nancy Pelosi in Washington — and is supported by the LGBTQ Victory Institute and other advocates of the LGBT agenda (via

19 states have introduced or plan to introduce legislation that will shield transgender youth and their parents from facing civil or criminal penalties when seeking or receiving gender-affirming care.

In California, Wiener’s Senate Bill 107 would declare that another state’s law allowing civil or criminal action to be brought against a “person or entity” allowing a child to receive gender-confirming care is “contrary to the public policy of this state.” The bill also declares that California law enforcement should not “intentionally participate” in arresting a person who has an out-of-state warrant related to gender-confirming care for youth.

“Starting with our legislation in California, we are building a coordinated national legislative campaign by LGBTQ lawmakers – a rainbow wall – to provide refuge for trans kids and their families,” Wiener said. “We’re making it crystal clear: We won’t let trans kids be belittled, used as political pawns, separated from their families, or denied gender-affirming care.” (Emphasis mine)

Looks like, in addition to becoming an abortion sanctuary where babies can be murdered before and after birth at taxpayer expense, California will be a sanctuary for kids in search of a “safe space” to be mutilated physically and sexually.

Scott Wiener’s involvement in this effort to mandate “gender-affirming care” is part of a long history of in support of sexually exploiting children in the name of the LGBT agenda.

As a member of the LGBT Legislative Caucus in California, Weiner introduced SB-154 in July 2019, legislation that banned “discrimination” against homosexual pedophiles regarding California’s sex offender registry. When he introduced the bill, Weiner defended the legislation in a press release, saying that straight young people who engage in sex with minors aren’t required to register as sex offenders, but LGBT youth are.

Weiner and the LGBT Caucus weren’t looking for ways to effectively punish sexual assault on children. Instead, since homosexual sex with a minor was no different than heterosexual sex with a minor in their eyes, they wanted to change existing laws to allow an LGBT child molester to avoid registering as a sex offender.

Of course, passing a law that punished both heterosexuals AND homosexuals equally for having sex with children would fix the problem, but that wouldn’t advance the LGBT agenda now, would it?

By the way, SB-145 was signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsome in September 2020.

California is also the home of a law (AB-1184) that makes it easier to sexually exploit children in secret by forcing insurance companies to conceal from parents the medical services their children are receiving, including abortion and gender-affirming treatments like puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.

AB 1184 prohibits insurance companies from requiring minors to receive authorization from the policy-holding parents for “sensitive services.” The law defines “sensitive” services as “mental or behavioral health, sexual and reproductive health, sexually transmitted infections, substance use disorder, gender-affirming care, and intimate partner violence.” The phrase “gender-affirming” care includes gender-transition treatments for transgenderism.

Further, the law requires the insurance company to “direct all communications” about the service to the child and prohibits the company from disclosing the information to the parents unless the child allows it.

Back to gender-affirming care mandates, New York and Minnesota have already introduced legislation modeled after Wiener’s legislation, and 16 other lawmakers from states across the nation have pledged to introduce similar bills. These states include Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia.

With the voluntary and politically motivated assistance of the courts, so-called conservatives in the Republican Party, and faux conservatives in the evangelical community and the media, the LGBT army has steadily marched on toward the goal of legally mandating the acceptance and normalization of their sexually deviant lifestyle.

By the way, I’m often called a hater for using the word deviant to describe the LGBT community, but it’s the perfect word to describe their agenda according to Collins English Dictionary.

Deviant (adj): behavior or thinking different from what people normally consider to be acceptable.
Deviance (noun): sexual deviance, including the abuse of children.

There are those who reject my opinions on this bill and the LGBT agenda as conjecture or the phobic rantings of a Christian conservative, but real-world examples like the push by lawmakers to mandate ‘gender-affirming care’ — with or without parental involvement — continue to validate my conclusions.

Although, according to Joe Biden’s assistant secretary of health, Rachel (formerly Richard) Levine, “there is no argument among medical professionals — pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists, adolescent medicine physicians, adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, etc., — about the value and importance of gender-affirming care.”

In other words, the science is settled, right?
