CA Gov. Newsom Signs Bill Allowing State to Take Custody of Kids Whose Parents Won’t “Affirm” Trans Identity

In the latest shocking assault on parents’ rights, California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a bill that will allow the state to take “temporary emergency jurisdiction” over any out-of-state youth who travels to California for “gender-affirming care.”

Several parents rights groups penned a letter raising serious concerns about the bill while it was still in the state legislature, writing that “This legislation allows the ‘taking of a child’ to California (without parental knowledge or consent) to obtain gender transition procedures – including puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and irreversible surgeries – and impermissibly gives California courts the power to strip custody from lawful and well-intentioned parents (regardless of where they live) who may have legitimate concerns for their child’s mental and physical health.”

As the radical left continues to insist that parents don’t have the right to know if their children are undergoing “social transitioning” or “gender-affirming therapy” at school, this development out of California is a stark reminder of what they hope to implement nationwide. What starts in the schools will eventually be expanded to the rest of society, until parents have no say at all over how they raise their children. The support of brave patriots like you is the only thing standing in their way.
