Canadian father defies court by calling daughter 'she'

Last week, the Supreme Court of British Columbia ordered that a 14-year-old teenage girl can receive testosterone injections to help her appear more masculine as she transitions to a male.  

The unnamed teen was encouraged by a school counselor to identify as a boy in the seventh grade, and staff at the BC Children’s Hospital encouraged her last year to take the testosterone injections, The Federalist has reported.

When the girl’s father vocally opposed the injections, the hospital said only her consent was required, and now the British Columbia court has sided with that claim.

"It is harmful. It is irrevocable,” warns Dr. Charles McVety, who has fought his country’s leftward march as president of Canada Christian College. “It is going to change this person's life for the rest of their life.”

A hospital doctor cited the Infants Act to defend the teen’s legal right to make medical decisions, The Federalist story reported, and the British Columbia Supreme Court warned the father that his attempts to persuade his own daughterl to abandon the hormone treatment is “family violence” as defined by the Family Law Act.

Not only is that action “family violence,” the court ruled, but referring to the teen girl as a “she” falls under the same law.

But the father is not backing down: citing her own DNA over a court's opinion, he is repeatedly referring to his daughter as a girl in media interviews, which openly defies the court’s Orwellian warning.

DNA strand“We’re gonna fight this right up to the Supreme Court of Canada,” he vowed. “We’re not quitting.”

McVety tells OneNewsNow what is unfolding in Canada mirrors “classic communism” as espoused by Marx and Engels, when the State wrestles control of a child then influences that child's beliefs. 

“And then you turn the child against the parents,” he warns, “because the family unit is the number one resistance to government fascism, or totalitarian, control.”

McVety predicts the father will be able to prove harm in his appeal to the Supreme Court.    

“And hopefully the Supreme Court,” he says, “can then stay with the position that the parental authority is the highest authority in a child's life."
