Greg Burt of the California Family Council explains that Assemblyman Miguel Santiago's bill (AB 2218) would establish a fund to provide cross-sex hormones for minors and adults and sex-change operations for adults. The measure passed in the Assembly without debate.

"Democrats don't speak up and defend the bill because they fear that that'll actually prompt a real debate and they'd have to actually defend these damaging treatments," Burt poses. "Republicans -- they aren't hearing from their constituents, and [they think], If I don't see a big outpouring of public outrage, why am I going to stick my neck out?"

Burt points out that these taxpayer-funded treatments would damage healthy body tissue, sterilize the recipient, and cause irreversible damage.

"These treatments wreck and permanently destroy reproductive systems forever," he reiterates. "A lot of these [gender-confused] kids are being persuaded that this is the right thing to do."

He hopes that parents will begin to speak against this bill while it is in the early stages of the legislative process.
