Idaho House Approves Bill Banning Transgender People From Changing Their Sex on Birth Certificates
The Idaho state house has approved a bill that would ban transgender individuals from changing their sex on birth certificates, in a rebuke of LGBT insanity.
House Bill 509 maintains that “there is a compelling interest in maintaining accurate, quantitative, biology-based material facts on Idaho certificates of birth that provide material facts fundamental to the performance of government functions that secure the public health and safety.”
The bill also states that “biological sex is an objectively defined category that has obvious, immutable, and distinguishable characteristics” that are God’s design and cannot be changed by man.
Republican Rep. Julianne Young introduced the legislation in an attempt to stop the LGBT war against science and reality.
“It is better to be correct than politically correct where human lives are concerned,” Young said to the Idaho Statesman.
The legislation passed by a 53-16 margin, but may come in conflict with a federal judge’s edict. U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Candy W. Dale made a ruling in March 2018 that states are not permitted to ban a mentally-ill individual from changing their sex on their birth certificate.
The edict stated that “a rule providing an avenue to obtain a birth certificate with a listed sex that aligns with an individual’s gender identity promotes the health, well-being, and safety of transgender people without impacting the rights of others.”
RINO state lawmaker Linda Hartgen used the ruling as an excuse to vote against the legislation.
“My job here is to protect all of the people of my district and the state of Idaho,” Hartgen said. “Not just those who look like me.”
This Idaho legislation follows other bills that have been filed in state legislatures across the country to push back against the LGBT plague:
Rep. Ben Baker, a legislator from southwestern Missouri, has introduced the “Parental Oversight of Public Libraries Act” to provide criminal sanctions against librarians who permit children to be exposed to drag queen story hour events without parental consent.
“In some places — St. Louis, Kansas City and I think St. (Joseph) — they’ve had these drag queen story hours and that’s something that I take objection to and I think a lot of parents do,” Baker said. “That’s where in a public space, our kids could be exposed to something that’s age-inappropriate. That’s what I’m trying to tackle.”
The legislation would allow parents to have “recourse” to express that they are “not OK” with drag queen story hour events coming to their community, according to Baker. Libraries would be compelled to create a five-person oversight board to determine whether certain “material,” like pro-tranny books read by cross-dressers at story hour events, is appropriate fr kids.
Library personnel who refused to comply with these rules would be charged with a class B misdemeanor, facing a fine of $500 and up to a year in jail. The bill author is clear that he does not want to ban any type of literature, only protect children from LGBT indoctrination from events like drag queen story hour.
“If we were trying to ban books or censor literature, I would kill the bill, myself,” Baker said.
The Missouri lawmaker is concerned about young children’s minds being poisoned with ideas regarding gender theory at drag queen story hour events. Because of the transgender fad, children are now being dosed with drugs in preparation for gender-mutilation surgery.
As the LGBT agenda becomes more totalitarian and predatory, Republican lawmakers are beginning to push back against the problems this movement is causing throughout society.
