Legislation introduced in South Dakota that would criminalize the drugging and mutilation of “transgender” children was killed in a state senate committee today by Republican lawmakers.
Although the Republicans all claimed to strongly oppose drugging and mutilating children, a majority of them on the Senate Health and Human Services Committee felt that their free market principles were more important than protecting children from systemic LGBT predation.
Sen. Wayne Steinhauer, a Republican from Hartford, had the nerve to invoke family values when he made the motion to kill the legislation.
“I believe the building block of society is the family,” Steinhauer said.
“I struggle to see this as a South Dakota issue,” said Sen. Helene Duhamel, a Republican of Rapid City, who also opposed the legislation.
The legislation was rejected by a 5-2 vote, and the bill’s primary sponsor Rep. Fred Deutsch (R-SD) does not plan to re-introduce anything similar during this legislative session.
“I’m done for the year,” he said. “I don’t like to bring more than one controversial bill per year.”
The state house approved the bill last month by a 46-23 vote. It would have made it a criminal act for doctors to prescribe drugs such as puberty blockers to children if they are deemed transgender. It would have also criminalized genital mutilation surgery from being performed on transgender children by healthcare officials.
Sen. Phil Jensen, a Republican from Rapid City, noted that there was immense public support for the bill. He said his constituents were in favor of it by an overwhelming 20-to-1 margin. Nevertheless, the Republicans chose to kill the legislation and do the bidding of their opponents.
Because transgender surgeries and maintenance is becoming a big business, the American Medical Association stood in opposition to the legislation. Subversive left-wing groups, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, are gloating as a result of Republicans killing the legislation.
“It’s time we stop these attacks and the very real harm they cause to transgender youth across our state,” said Libby Skarin, policy director of the ACLU of South Dakota. “Let this be a signal to the South Dakota Legislature that discrimination against a marginalized group is a distraction from the needs of the state and hurts us all.”
The Republican Party has demonstrated why conservatives never seem to conserve much of anything. LGBT predators will still have free reign to indoctrinate children and induct them into their satanic lifestyle in South Dakota, thanks to the GOP.

HUGE: 5th Circuit Court Affirms Texas Abortion Ban During Coronavirus Pandemic
A big league victory for sanity.
The 5th Circuit Court has issued a decision allowing the state of Texas to ban elective abortions during the coronavirus pandemic, as medical supplies are in high demand to treat victims of the illness.
The panel made the ruling by a 2-1 margin on Tuesday. The majority cited “the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health” in making their decision.
Breaking: 5th Circuit rules for Texas in case over coronavirus abortion ban. Judge Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, cites "the escalating spread of COVID-19, and the state’s critical interest in protecting the public health."

Judges Stuart Kyle Duncan, a Trump appointee, and Jennifer Elrod, an appointee of George W. Bush, made up the majority while Judge James Dennis, a Clinton appointee, dissented with the ruling.
“That settled rule allows the state to restrict, for example, one’s right to peaceably assemble, to publicly worship, to travel, and even to leave one’s home,” the majority wrote. “The right to abortion is no exception.”
The panel also determined that the lower court erred when they refused to apply the Supreme Court’s test to determine the constitutionality of abortion restrictions. The SCOTUS test pertains to the legal review of weighing the burden on a woman’s access to abortion services against the medical benefits of the restrictions on abortion.
The majority ultimately determined that the lower court “failed to balance (the Texas restriction’s) temporary burdens on abortion against its benefits in thwarting a public health crisis.”
“The bottom line is this: when faced with a society-threatening epidemic, a state may implement emergency measures that curtail constitutional rights so long as the measures have at least some “real or substantial relation” to the public health crisis,” Judge Duncan and Judge Elrod wrote in their majority opinion.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a guidance last month declaring that all abortions “not medically necessary to preserve the life or health” of the woman would be considered a “non-essential” medical service throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Doctors who refuse to comply and murder babies in the womb despite the order are subject to “penalties of up to $1,000 or 180 days of jail time.”
The Democrat on the panel is dismayed with the opinion of the majority and would have preferred to keep the baby-mutilating industry going in Texas while coronavirus poses a serious threat to public safety.
“In a time where panic and fear already consume our daily lives, the majority’s opinion inflicts further panic and fear on women in Texas by depriving them, without justification, of their constitutional rights, exposing them to the risks of continuing an unwanted pregnancy, as well as the risks of travelling to other states in search of time-sensitive medical care,” Dennis wrote.
Because of this ruling, Texas is permitted to make common-sense decisions to conserve medical supplies during an unprecedented crisis.
