HAWAII Update: Stop the Legislature from Pushing Kids to Change Gender

April 3

The Hawaii bill that would push many minors towards transgenderism has moved one step closer to passage — but is now facing a second committee hearing tomorrow.  Your quick help is needed to stop it!  (If you reached out to the previous committee, thank you!  Now, the members of the House Judiciary Committee also need to hear from you.)

Senate Bill 270 is what is known as a “therapy ban.”  It would ban professional counseling for children and teens who are struggling with their gender identity.  But the ban would ONLY forbid counseling that is designed to help them identify with their birth sex.

In other words, counseling that encourages them to change their gender – even to go through irreversible sex-change operations – would be protected by the state.  But counseling to help them accept their God-given birth sex would be outlawed.

Incredibly, such laws have already passed in California and a few other states.  But it has also been stopped in many.  That’s why your help is so urgently needed!

The bill would also affect counseling for unwanted same-sex attraction.  This type of counseling has helped thousands of young people deal with unwanted same-sex attraction, which often arises out of sexual abuse.  But if SB 270 passes, these young people will only be allowed to get counseling that encourages homosexuality.

Here’s what you can do:

Thank you for taking action!
