The Florida-based American College of Pediatricians has released a statement that urges lawmakers, educators, and citizens around the United States to reject the normalizing of surgical or chemical impersonation of the opposite sex to children.
This statement comes on the heels of efforts by activists in several states to normalize and promote a concept of gender fluidity — where an individual can change their gender identity and presentation, regardless of biological realities.
From the American College of Pediatricians:
The American College of Pediatricians urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.
WFA president Julaine Appling weighs in on this issue, “This statement from a medical group is extremely important. It presents the facts that educators, legislators and especially parents need to know about this current craziness of making the abnormal normal as it relates to gender. Facts are stubborn things; those who willfully ignore them in this critical area are doing great harm to our children.”
