WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has made even clearer the White House's intention to push onto minors puberty blockers, hormone therapies and so-called gender transition surgeries.
RealClearPolitics reporter Philip Wegmann questioned Jean-Pierre at Wednesday's press conference, asking President Biden's position regarding the administration of puberty blockers and surgery for so-called transgender youth.
"That's something for a child and their parents to decide," replied Jean-Pierre, adding that "[i]n the past couple of months we have seen a record number of anti-LGBTQI bills — more than 600 of them have been filed in statehouses, and a significant number of them have been anti-trans."
Wegmann pressed her on Biden's reaction to the Indiana governor signing into law a bill banning harmful therapies and surgery.
"That's not something that we believe should be decided by legislators," she responded.
The White House's stance is nothing new. Ever since the 2020 presidential campaign, Biden and members of his administration have been outspoken about plans to allow the chemical castration and mutilation of children.
During a televised event in Philadelphia, Biden was confronted with a question about what he would do to protect so-called transgender people. The question came from a mother claiming to have an 8-year-old transgender daughter.
Biden responded, "The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides ... 'I want to be transgender ... it'd make my life a lot easier' ... [t]here should be zero discrimination."
On March 13, self-identified practicing Catholic Biden claimed that it's "close to sinful" and "cruel" to ban puberty blockers and so-called sex-change surgery for children.
Last week, Biden's White House celebrated Transgender Day of Visibility, which purported to affirm and support so-called transgender youth. But despite the fact that 82% of transgender individuals have considered killing themselves and 40% have attempted suicide, it has not stopped the presidential promotion of gender confusion.
There are now more than a dozen states that have passed laws restricting what the Biden administration calls "gender-affirming care" for minors. Thirteen states — Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Utah, South Dakota and West Virginia — currently ban such medical practices on people under the age of legal authority.
Federal judges, however, have blocked enforcement of Alabama's and Arkansas' laws.
There are at least 20 other states considering similar legislation.
Biden's White House, which labels pro-lifers and traditional Catholics as extremists, remains indifferent about mass murderers when those mass murderers are a part of the LGBTQI+ community.
Before Jean-Pierre was asked about the president's stance on genital mutilation for minors, Wegmann inquired about the recent Tennessee shooting incident in which six people at a Christian school were gunned down by a self-identified transgender. Wegmann asked Jean-Pierre whether the shooter was motivated by a hatred for Christians and what Biden thinks about designating that act as a hate crime.
Jean-Pierre responded bluntly, "It's not for us to decide."
Canada is also embracing the trans agenda by pushing a bill that would criminalize so-called offensive remarks about trans people. Anyone deemed "transphobic, homophobic or offensive" would face prosecution and a $25,000 fine.
