North Carolina governor vetoes bills to protect children from LGBT ideology and transgender surgeries

RALEIGH (LifeSiteNews) – North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a trio of Republican-backed transgender and minor bills on Wednesday, setting up another veto-override showdown with the Republican legislature.

The first bill prohibits surgical or chemical “gender transition” procedures from being administered to people under the age of 18. The second excludes middle and high school men, as well as college sports teams specifically for women and girls. The third bans LGBT material from school curricula and requires parents to be notified if their children begin to identify as the opposite sex.

Cooper vetoed all three measures Wednesday, WRAL reportsaccusing Republicans of “using government to invade the rights and responsibilities of parents and doctors, hurt vulnerable children, and damage our state’s reputation and economy as they did with the damaging bathroom bill.”

“Parents know what is best for their children” answered Republican state senators Amy Galey and Michael Lee. “The governor. Cooper continues to mislead the public about the parents’ bill of rights so he can whip up manufactured outrage and drum up donations. This bill encourages collaboration, promotes transparency, and keeps classrooms focused on educating, not indoctrinating. Democrats and Governor Cooper think government can co-parent, but Republicans will always stand strong to stand up for parents and families.”

LGBT ideology has captured corporations around the world, and now Target is taking it to the next level by selling “pride” propaganda to children, including transgender swimwear for children.

Join our boycott of Target to make sure this retail giant gets the same treatment as Bud Light!

SIGN: We’re boycotting Target for spreading LGBT propaganda to children

Target Corporation has already signaled it’s nervous about how consumers are reacting to its “pride” ad for kids by moving screens to the back at certain outlets, so now’s the time to turn up the pressure about this deviant company that would use children to advertise the sexual leanings of the LGBT lobby.

Incredibly, one of the products for little girls is a bathing suit that can be used to “tuck in” male genitalia, with the label stating that it is “suitable for placement” and has “extra coverage of ‘crotch”.

We need to rally people everywhere to join this boycott and teach corporate America another lesson in decency after the Bud Light debacle: Don’t target children for sexualization and gender confusion.

SIGN: Stop trying to sexualize children

Evidence shows that “affirming” confusion about one’s own biological sex leads to serious harm, especially when that affirmation takes the form of physically transformative procedures on impressionable children who cannot fully understand the long-term ramifications of the decisions they are made. impose

Studies find that over 80% of children suffer from gender dysphoria overcome it by themselves in late adolescence and that even full “reassignment” surgery often does not resolve the greater tendency of gender-confused people to engage in self-harm and suicide, and it can even make it worseincluding reinforcing their confusion and neglecting the real causes of their mental struggles.

Lots of often ignored”detransitionists,” individuals who tried to live with a different “gender identity” before embracing their sex, testify to the physical and psychic damage of reinforcing gender confusion, as well as to the partiality and negligence of the medical establishment in the matter.

The danger of keeping parents in the dark about these situations is grimly illustrated in the story by Yaeli Martínez, a 19-year-old to whom “gender transition” was promoted as a possible cure for her depression in high school, with the support of a high school counselor who withheld what was happening to her his mother The troubled girl killed herself after trying to live as a man for three years.

Meanwhile, the left promotes the mandatory inclusion of gender-confused individuals in opposite-sex sports as a matter of “inclusion,” but critics point out that the consent of “transgender” athletes undermines the original rationale for having sex-specific athletics at first. place, thus depriving female athletes of recognition and professional or academic opportunities.

There has been numerous high profile examples in the last years of men winning female competitions, and research states that physiology gives men distinct athletic advantages that cannot be completely negated by hormone suppression.

In a 2019 article published by the Journal of medical ethicsNew Zealand researchers Found that “healthy young men [do] do not lose significant muscle mass (or power) when their circulating testosterone levels were reduced to (below International Olympic Committee guidelines) for 20 weeks” and “indirect effects of testosterone” on factors such as bone structure, lung volume and heart size.” will not be altered by hormone therapy; therefore, “the advantage for trans women [biological men] awarded by the [International Olympic Committee] guidelines is an intolerable injustice.”

North Carolina Republicans and their allies hope the legislature will override Cooper’s vetoes did in may with a law to ban most abortions at 12 weeks.
