A bill in the North Carolina House of Representatives would ban healthcare to minors diagnosed with gender incongruence. While other states focus on those under 18 like the law just enacted in Arkansas, North Carolina extended that age until 21 four years past the legal age with Senate Bill 514.
If this enacted it would force doctors to refuse treatment to trans people under the age of 21. The doctors and therapists who are suspected of treating gender-dysphoric youth, or anyone giving them haven, will be ordered to stand in front of a tribunal staffed by a board of medical professionals.
It’s bad enough North Carolina Republicans are so hateful that they refuse to acknowledge that transgender youth exist but who exactly is going to be on the tribunals?
Certainly not the 60,00 medical professionals who belong to the 31 major American Medical associations who oppose legislation just like this.
And nor anyone from the 7000 member World Health Organization
And Certainly not anyone who adheres to The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) SOC for the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Gender Dysphoria .
That leaves about 600 People of which a fraction are doctors from the “American College of Pediatricians” or ACPeds which is designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The SPLC identifies “The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) as a fringe anti-LGBTQ hate group that masquerades as the premier U.S. association of pediatricians to push anti-LGBTQ junk science, primarily via far-right conservative media and filing amicus briefs in cases related to gay adoption and marriage equality.”
ACPeds opposes adoption by LGBTQ couples, links homosexuality to pedophilia, endorses so-called reparative or sexual orientation conversion therapy for homosexual youth, believes transgender people have a mental illness and has called transgender health care for youth child abuse.
Is ACPeds really a hate group? They are by their own words and deeds. And you can bet if they weren’t they would have long ago won numerous lawsuits claiming libelous and slander against the SPLC and planet transgender.
These aren’t physicians and neither are neither are the politicians who copy these lies into legislation. They are criminals bent on killing our children.
North Carolina laws are another hate crime in the making.
