A Minnesota mother whose ‘transgender’ son was plied with drugs and given a surgical procedure with help from government officials without her approval wants to take her lawsuit all the way to the Supreme Court.
The Thomas More Society is representing Anmarie Calgaro, who alleges that government officials in St. Louis County referred her son to health care providers for treatment for his gender transition. Calgaro believes this infringed upon her due process rights and effectively “ended her parental control over her minor son without a court order of emancipation.”
“It’s a parent’s worst nightmare,” Thomas More Society special counsel Erick Kaardal said.
“Anmarie Calgaro’s child, while a minor, was steered through a life-changing, permanent body altering process, becoming a pawn in someone else’s sociopolitical agenda and being influenced by those who have no legal or moral right to usurp the role of a parent,” he added.
The Thomas More Society is petitioning the Supreme Court on Calgaro’s behalf, hoping that the nation’s high court takes up this matter as the LGBT agenda becomes more pervasive and targets unsuspecting children to recruit into their depraved and unhealthy lifestyle.
Calgaro initially sued health providers and state agencies in 2016 after her 17-year-old son was given an elective “sex change” operation without her consent. The state agencies decided that the child was emancipated and acted accordingly, her lawsuit claims.
Her lawsuit was dismissed by a district judge in May 2017 who ruled that Calgaro’s parental rights “remained intact.” The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the district judge’s ruling in March 2019. Calgaro hopes that justice will finally be served and parental rights will finally be affirmed by the Supreme Court.
“Unbelievably, Minnesota statutes authorize a county to deem a minor ‘emancipated’ to receive welfare payments to live on their own and allow medical providers to void parental input if it determines the minor is living apart from the parents and is managing personal financial affairs,” Kaardal said.
“And the St. Louis County School District in Minnesota has a custom and practice of barring a parent from involvement in the child’s education for more than two years after a child is deemed by the school principal, not by a court order, to be emancipated,” he added. “This is an unacceptable situation for any parent and a serious violation of parental and due process rights.”
The Supreme Court has a chance to correct a grave injustice and ought to do so, as legal ambiguity in the Minnesota state code punishes fit parents by giving them fewer rights than unfit parents in the court of law.
“The U.S. Court of Appeals ignored the major disconnect in the District Court decision where the mother’s parental rights are admitted but not honored, and the ridiculous claims that the agencies which have violated Calgaro’s rights did nothing wrong,” Kaardal said. “The United States Supreme Court now has the opportunity to untangle this incompatible and untenable scenario; so, nationwide fit parents can keep parenting without governmental interference.”
“Under federal law, the right to parent is considered an unenumerated right, protected from governmental interference by the Due Process Clauses of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments,” he added. “The “liberty” of the Due Process Clauses safeguards those substantive rights “so rooted in the traditions and conscience as to be ranked as fundamental.”
The Supreme Court will reconvene in October, and have an opportunity to take up Calgaro’s case and issue a well-deserved rebuke of the perverted LGBT agenda that has sex offenders grooming children at public libraries and glorified strip shows featuring children as the centerpiece.
BLM Activist Wearing “Justice for Breonna Taylor” T-Shirt Shoots, Kills Three People in Bar Owned by Louisville Ex-Cop
This hasn’t been reported on at all.
A man wearing a “Justice for Breonna Taylor” t-shirt allegedly shot and killed three people at a Louisville, Kentucky bar owned by a retired police officer on Friday night.
33-year old Michael E. Rynes was arrested by Louisville police on Friday after the mass shooting event, in which he allegedly shot three people at random at Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill. They all died of their injuries.
Eyewitness accounts describe Rynes as wearing a ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor’ t-shirt when he entered the establishment and began shooting.
Rynes would be arrested by Louisville Police hours after the shooting while hiding in a bush near Bungalow Joe’s. He matched the description given in initial 911 calls regarding the shooting, and possessed a firearm with ammunition used at the bar shooting. The 33-year old Rynes, whose social media contains content expressing his support for left-wing BLM causes and NFL anthem kneeling, was arrested and charged with three counts of murder for his alleged involvement in the shootings.
Rynes was seen smiling in photography of his arrest hours after the bar shooting.
Taylor was a Louisville woman who was shot and killed by police earlier this year during an operation in which they were seeking to apprehend her drug dealer boyfriend. Progressive and BLM activists have sought to publicize the controversial shooting-which remains under investigation by the Kentucky Attorney General- as an alternative to the incidences involving Jacob Blake and George Floyd, both of whom had extensive criminal histories when they resisted arrest for crimes.
“Nobody had ever seen this guy before,” Said restaurant owner and retired law enforcement officer Joe Bishop, referring to the shooter. “It was a totally random act.”
26-year old Toreon Hudson, 48-year old William Smallwood, and 24-year old Steven Head were killed in Rynes alleged shooting rampage. Two of the murder victims were white, and one was black.
This appears to be the latest Black Lives Matter mass shooting, following Micah Xavier’s mass shooting of five Dallas, Texas police officers in 2016. Peculiar that the corporate media has largely ignored the mass casualty event while devoting hours of coverage to the controversial Taylor shooting, which remains under official investigation.
