MA UPDATE: Senate to Vote on Bill that Pushes Kids to Change Gender

A Massachusetts bill that would push many minors towards transgenderism is about to get a vote on the Senate floor. Your quick help is needed to stop it!

This bill, SB 70, is even worse than the House bill we told you about last week. Both are “counseling bans” that 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.

Yet this Senate bill is even worse in that it contains a child-abuse provision that would allow the state to remove a child if parents obtain counseling for their child that affirms the child’s birth sex.

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 is correlated with childhood sexual abuse. But if SB 70 passes, these young people will only be allowed to get counseling that encourages homosexuality, even if that’s not what the teen wants.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Please click here to send a note to your senator. You can reach him or her with just a click at our Action Center.
  2. After you send the note through our Action Center, watch for a follow-up message that contains your senator’s name and phone number. Please also call them and ask them to vote No on SB 70.
  3. Please pass this email along to friends so they can make their voice heard as well.

Thank you for taking action!
