Journal of Medical Ethics: "Parents Should Lose Veto Power Over Trans Children"

The San Francisco Gay Men's Choir introduced a new song earlier this month that signals exactly what the men have in mind. The lyrics are revealing---"We'll convert your children---happens bit by bit, quietly and subtlety and you will barely notice it...we'll convert your children."

So who cares what a homosexual choir from San Francisco is singing?

You should.

Because it isn't only the choir. It's also the establishment of "Journal of Medical Ethics." 

JME published an article last week calling for parents who oppose the hormonal and surgical transformation of their child to lose their "veto power" regarding the decision.

According to the medical journal, they are "following the science." They, too, are coming for your child.

Be informed, not misled.

It's a disgusting subject that most of us don't want to talk about or hear about. The activists are counting on the notion that you won't want to be informed, as they continue their aggressive assault on America's children.

I write this for the sake of your child.

About the singers and their song.

The Christian Post published an article about what the San Francisco Gay Men's Choir is up to this past week, and they did so out of profound concern.

The SF Gay Men's Choir travels and performs extensively. They have a sphere of influence.

They released their new song a few weeks ago, but have now made it private because of the backlash. But there must be more than mere "backlash." There must be "action" on the part of every parent, grandparent, and Christian leader.

The lyrics repeatedly say, "We'll convert your children," and, "We're coming for your children."

The lyrics continue: 

"You think we're sinful. You fight against our rights"---a soloist sings, "You say we all lead lives you can't respect. But you're just frightened. You think that we'll corrupt your kids if our agenda goes unchecked. Funny, just this once, you're correct. We'll convert your children. Happens bit by bit. Quietly and subtly. And you will barely notice it."  

Then the full choir continues, 

"You can keep them from the disco, Warn about San Francisco. Make 'em wear pleated pants. We don't care. We'll convert your children. We'll make them tolerant and fair...the gay agenda is coming home."

The activists are now claiming that the far-right conservatives have taken what was intended to be "tongue-in-cheek" and made a big deal out of it.

The glee club has quickly pivoted from being the aggressor to becoming the victim.

Ben Shapiro doubts it was a tongue-in-cheek parody.

So do I. So do most clear-thinking people. Thus the backlash.

Shapiro, a well-known and well-read conservative, but not a professing Christian, says he doesn't believe them. "The left has a very different vision of what America ought to be and the way they're going to achieve this is by changing how your kids are taught," he says.

"And if you push back on them, then this, of course, makes you the true threat to the kids. If you want to separate the country, this is how you are going to separate the country. As I say, I'm going to educate my kids how I want to educate my kids. Frankly, I'm not interested in what the San Francisco Gay Men's Choir thinks my kids should learn."


But it isn't just the men from San Francisco whose song ends with this: "no escaping it" and once the "children are converted, they will start converting you."

Medical Journal: "Parents who oppose...should be excluded."

The Journal of Medical Ethics published an article in June written by Maura Priest, a candidate professor at Arizona State University, in which she is strongly advocating that "parents should lose veto power over most transition-related pediatric care."

"Follow the science," they say.

Priest writes, "Trained medical scientists should defer to the children's wishes once they decide that the children are "informed and competent" to make a lifetime decision over their medical health, sexual relations, and reproductive choices," she argues.

Most of her article is hidden behind a paywall, but most of the summary of the article is easily available through the government's PubMed.gov site.

This is nothing more or less than an attempt at a power grab by homosexual activists and others seeking to diminish the parent's role in raising and educating their children.

So far, many thousands of boys and girls have been nudged, pulled, and pushed into declaring that they feel psychological distress over the male or female sex of their bodies.

There is little scientific or medical evidence of any benefits from the offered treatments for this claimed psychological distress, such as puberty-blocking hormones, surgery, and a wide variety of civic regulations.

Dr. Will Malone says, "There is currently no convincing evidence that hormonal and/or surgical interventions improve the long-term mental and/or physical health of youth with gender dysphoria."

Without scientific evidence, the Biden administration is following their stumbling leader who is "eager" to accelerate the support of claims that people deserve treatment. I personally believe the Biden push is a power grab by the left to help the so-called progressives get more control of tax payer's money to be used to liberate people from any constraints on their "perceived freedoms."

Read the link above for a more in-depth look at what President Biden is doing to push this agenda forward. 

There are thousands of testimonies of children who have gone on puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones only to experience disaster. There is now a movement among kids trying to "detransition."

It is a heart wrenching experience for both parent and child. And for our nation.

Why are Republicans so quiet on this issue?

A right response.

Everyone with an ounce of common sense should be outraged over this assault on America's children.

But how should the Christian respond?

Arizona pastor and apologist James White tweeted: "Reason #1,462,908 to home school communicate a passionate, deep Christian worldview that explains how men are to be men, women to be women, and all are to be thankful for the gifts and roles God has given."

Every Christian parent should seriously and prayerfully consider homeschooling their children.

The culture today is predatory, not only in regard to human sexuality but to every aspect of life itself. And public education is ground zero for taking your children hostage to the perverse indoctrination in our culture. Most of what public education is advocating today is not about reading or writing or math or civics or even science---It's about activism. It's about using our kids to advance a dark, demonic social agenda.

The Bible tells us children are a reward from God (Psalm 127:3).

It's very clear that this "reward" should be "trained up in the way he or she should go" (Proverbs 22:6).

Moses taught God's people the importance of teaching your children about the Lord and His commands and His laws and His love (Deuteronomy 6:7-9). Impress God's Truth upon your child's mind and heart. Talk to them when you sit, when you stand, when you walk, when you lie down, and when you get up.

Post His Truth over the doorposts of your home.

This cannot be accomplished by dropping off your child at the government-run complex every morning and picking them up each afternoon---asking, "What did you learn today?"

Parents should have the same zeal in teaching their children as Moses had.

We have been given a very short time in our child's life to make an eternal impression. And the clock is running.

And the San Francisco Gay Men's Choir---or their counterpart, are coming for you and your child---and that's not a tongue-in-cheek statement. They really believe they can make it happen.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Be Faithful.
