Texas senate approves bill banning trans procedures for kids

AUSTIN, Texas, May 21, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Texas state senators approved a ban on experimental transgender drugs and surgeries for minors earlier this week, days after house lawmakers shelved similar legislation.

The upper chamber approved Senate Bill 1311 on Tuesday, reviving the push to protect children from life-threatening “gender-transition” procedures.

The bill would prohibit doctors from prescribing or administering “puberty-blocking medication” or cross-sex hormones, in addition to barring any “surgery that sterilizes the child” or otherwise removes a “healthy or non-diseased body part or tissue.” SB 1311 also would ban liability insurance coverage for the procedures and strip physicians of their licenses for performing them.

“Our job is to protect children who can’t protect themselves,” the bill’s author, Sen. Bob Hall, R-Edgewood, told senators, according to local news. “It was wrong yesterday, it is wrong today, and it’ll be wrong tomorrow to not protect those who cannot protect themselves,” he said.

Biden refuses to mention God in National Day of Prayer address

The address came two weeks after the Biden regime sued to force Christians to perform ‘sex change’ surgeries and resembles a Christ-less White House Easter message.

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 7, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Joe Biden, a self-professed “devout Catholic,” failed to mention God even once during his National Day of Prayer address on Wednesday, instead emphasizing “moral movements” and issues like “racial injustice.”

“Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden said, without referring to Christianity or Jesus Christ. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans.”
