The TRUTH about gender… ‘Gender Ideology Harms Children’The American College of Pediatricians has released an EXCELLENT POSITION STATEMENT about the HARM being done to children by those who proclaim that ‘gender is how you feel’ and who suggest to them that a boy can ‘become’ a girl or a girl can ‘become’ a boy, especially by taking puberty blockers or hormones and having sex re-assignment surgery.
Point 5 states, "5. According to the DSM-V, as many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty."
Point 7 highlights the real facts about the high suicide risk in transgender adults who take hormones and have ‘re-assignment surgery’.
“What compassionate and reasonable person would condemn young children to this fate knowing that after puberty as many as 88% of girls and 98% of boys will eventually accept reality and achieve a state of mental and physical health?”
THE STATEMENT in FULL
Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
There is “a time to be silent, and a time to speak”. (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Now is the time to speak, so please speak up and defend children, truth and freedom. Craig Manners
“What the world needs most is a voice that courageously speaks the truth, not when the world is right, but a voice that speaks the truth when the world is wrong.” Fulton Sheen
True marriage offers true equality for children. Every child comes from and needs BOTH a Mum and a Dad. Every human being has dignity and deserves respect. All sorts of relationships can be respected at law without having to change marriage laws. In fact that has been the case legally for many years. The simple fact remains though that not every relationship is marriage.
