Two Christian Democrat MPs, Tuve Skånberg and Annelie Enochson, have broken ranks and are opposing a goverment sponsored proposal doing a way with the country’s forced sterilization of transgender people.
Since 1945 the Swedish goverment has required transgender people to be sterilized prior to official recognition of their authentic gender. Currently this requirement has little practical affect on a trans woman’s life, other than the traumatic realization her goverment doesn’t want any more people like her, as uterine transplants have not yet been perfected. However this requirement deprives trans men from there right to procreate.
The English language source “The local” reports that the the two Mps are warning in a oped published in the right wing newspaper “Dagen” that a ‘third gender’ would be created if trans Swedish transmen were allowed to give birth.
The infamous Dagan was one of the first newspapers to reprint Jyllands-Posten’s Muhammad cartoons which, according to the editor, was made in the name of freedom of speech. The printing of these drawings resulted in attacks on Norwegian installations in some parts of the Muslim world.
The Swedish goverment is currently being sued by transgender people for it forced eugenics requirment.
