A Maine legislative committee is scheduled to consider a bill that would push many minors towards transgenderism. Your quick help is needed to stop it!
The bill (LD 1025/ME HB755) is what is known as a “counseling 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 is correlated with childhood sexual abuse. If this bill is enacted, these young people will only be allowed to get counseling that encourages homosexuality, even if that’s not what the teen wants.
The bill has a wide-ranging scope applying to not only professional counselors but also school psychologists and guidance counselors, alcohol and drug counselors and aides, social workers, pharmacists and pharm techs, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, pastoral counselors, speech language pathologists and assistants and audiologists.
