MARYLAND: Last Chance to Stop the State from Pushing Kids to Change Gender

The bill that would push many minors towards transgenderism is now at the Governor’s desk.  If he signs it, it will become law.  Your quick help is needed to stop it!

Senate Bill 1028 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 1028 passes, these young people will only be allowed to get counseling that encourages homosexuality.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Please click here to send a note to Gov. Hogan.
  • Then please also call him at (800) 811-8336 and ask him to veto SB 1028.
  • Please pass this email along to friends so they can make their voice heard as well.

Thank you for taking action!
