Some doctors are speaking out against the dangerous ideology creeping into American parenthood that says:

CHILDREN SHOULD SELECT THEIR OWN GENDER

The American College of Pediatricians has released a statement, Gender Ideology Harms Children, urging “educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex.” These pediatricians are not afraid to call this what it is: child abuse.

This group of doctors is small in numbers, but their courage is admirable. Read more about their history and vision here.

As Frontline Moms, we knew the current gender madness was dangerous but we have been waiting for someone to back up what our hearts were screaming.

In contrast, the 64,000 member American Academy of Pediatricians has their policy statement: Office-Based Care for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning Youth. In lock-step with the culture, they recommend that pediatricians should be non-judgmental toward “sexual minority” youth, and provide for “transgender” youth ... the opportunity to acknowledge and affirm their feelings of gender dysphoria and desires to transition to the opposite gender.

Which organization would you hope your child's pediatrician belongs to?

Please share this article with others. Let's stand behind this sensible announcement as so many young lives are being influenced by this confusion.

Over my 29+ years of parenting experience, I have been grateful to the many caring and dedicated physicians who have assisted our family.

So when I read about the recent policy statement issued by the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP), I was quite shocked.  

AAP expects their members to assure lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) adolescents that “being LGBTQ is normal, just different.  I encourage you to take a look at this article.

Surely not all physicians will comply with these guidelines! Surely not all among us will openly embrace the indoctrination of these LGBTQ sexual beliefs!

But surely, as a parent of multiple teenagers, I’d better be aware of these official guidelines!

So, can I trust my pediatrician? Well, perhaps not without investigation!

And what an interesting display of terminology. Heterosexism. Homophobia. I object to these words, how about you?

We are being labeled with the trendy new  pejorative heterosexist. This word implies that there something wrong with the Biblical world view that God created sex to be enjoyed between one man and one woman within marriage. (There isn’t.)

We embrace the Bible's clear standards on homosexuality as sin, but that does not make us phobic (irrationally fearful) .  On the contrary, we do not fear those with same-sex attractions, or their lobby.  We choose instead to fear the Lord, and honor what He says.  These are two of the most rational actions that a human being can take.

Parents, we must be aware that our rights to lead our children have been seriously compromised in medical offices. Do you know your state's laws? Click here to learn more.

What should we do now, parents?

Since we are the ones who make decisions about health care for our children,  perhaps our doctors need to hear from us.
