KANSAS CITY: Stop the City from Pushing Kids to Change Gender

November 5

A Kansas City (MO) city council committee is about to consider an ordinance that would push many minors towards transgenderism.  Your quick help is needed to stop it!

Ordinance 190902 is what is known as a “counseling ban.”  It would censor 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 city.  But counseling to help them accept their God-given birth sex would be outlawed.

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

The ordinance 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 this ordinance passes, these young people will only be allowed to get counseling that encourages homosexuality.

In addition, bans in other cities have recently faced costly legal challenges. In Tampa, such an ordinance was recently overturned.

Here’s what you can do:

  • If you’re able, please attend the council committee hearing (Finance, Governance and Public Safety Committee) where this ordinance will be heard on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 10:30 a.m. at City Hall (414 E 12th, 26th Floor, Kansas City, MO).
  • Please pass this email along to friends so they can make their voice heard as well.

Emails to the council members are encouraged even after the hearing is held, as a vote by the full council will happen at a later date.

Thank you for taking action!
