State to Consider Gender Change Operations on Minors as Child Abuse

(AbsoluteNews.com) – There’s a radical movement in America where parents of young minors want to allow them to medically change their gender. Conservatives are firmly against medical intervention for children who have gender dysphoria. One state is now considering a ban on reassignment surgery for little kids.

On February 22, Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent a letter to the state Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) to inform them the Office of the Attorney General issued an opinion calling many of the sex change procedures “child abuse under existing Texas law.” The governor directed DFPS to investigate any instances reported to the agency of medical procedures that fall under the umbrella.

According to the Office of the Attorney General, the procedures considered child abuse include, but are not limited to, removal of healthy body parts, mastectomies, any surgery that can cause sterilization, and hormone therapies that block testosterone of estrogen (or introduce the hormones into the bodies of the opposite sex).

The decision by Texas will essentially make it impossible for underage children to change their gender in any significant way. They may still dress like the opposite sex if they choose, but they won’t be able to receive any treatment or procedures to permanently alter their bodies while they’re underage.
