Texas is being turned into a third-world country right before our eyes. Non-Governor Greg Abbott is doing his best to destroy the souls of the children of this great state. Abbott is determined to label transgender children as abnormal. In the latest news, his administration has launched “an investigation” into the family of a transgender teenager.
Per Politico, a (sane) Texas Judge halted this investigation — temporarily. This is happening because Abbott is attempting to paint the parents of any and all Transgender kids as criminals.
Calling these investigations “terrifying,” President Biden ordered them to stop. And Biden and people in his administration are telling children and parents to call the Civil Rights office if they have been targets of Governor Abbott.
HHS put out a statement saying any restrictions on care for trans people would “likely violate the law.”
Under HIPAA, EVERYONE has the right to privacy despite Abbott attempting to violate that right Of course, this does not appear to matter to Abbott. Snug in his offices, no doubt chortling as only George Orwell’s pigs could do, Abbott appears pleased with his efforts to demean and stigmatize these kids.
Determined to get in on the fun of dehumanizing children, Texas AG Ken Paxton declared medical care for Trans kids is “child abuse.”
HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra is promising to defend the rights of all-trans kids. I will include a line from his statement. If you know anyone in Texas who you think needs to see this, please send it to them: “Any individual or family in Texas who is being targeted by a child welfare investigation because of this discriminatory gubernatorial order is encouraged to contact our Office for Civil Rights to report their experience.”
One more thing, Texans. Vote for Beto, Texas. Please vote for Beto – for the children more than anyone; you NEED to vote for Beto.
