George Orwell noted the dangers of unwavering loyalty to the state for the family. In Orwell’s novel 1984, government undermines the sanctity and integrity of the family unit by turning the children against their parents.
California is already experiencing this. Governor. Gavin Newsom has signed two bills that allow minors to hide abortions and transgender surgeries from their parents. The radical left is using Orwell’s novel 1984 to instruct them in a number of ways, including destroying families, indoctrinating kids, and attacking parental rights.
Washington State has now followed suit. The Washington House approved Senate Bill 5599 on Wednesday. This bill allows the state to offer “shelter”, or a safe place, for minors who want an abortion or transgender procedure against their parents’ will.
SB 5599, which was approved by the Senate last month but with some changes, has now been passed on to the House. The bill will now be sent back to the Senate so that it can further discuss these changes. This legislation will be signed into law by the Governor. Jay Inslee.
The Washington State Senate Democrats released a statement that stated: “This legislation provides meaningful choices for young people who do not have supportive family members at home, so they don’t end up on their own. Instead, they have shelter options to seek this life-saving treatment.”
Shelters that are licensed are required to notify parents when a child enters their care, unless there is a compelling reason to do so. This new legislation allows licensed shelters instead of notifying parents, to inform the Department of Children, Youth and Families when minors seek abortions or want their bodies mutilated due to being transgender.
Washington Democrats support this proposal to remove children from their parents who dare intervene in order to stop their children making irreversible, life-changing decisions that they are not mature enough for. It is a state-sponsored kidnapping that’s being done under the pretext of “saving lives” for transgender children.
We know that homeless youth are at risk of dangerous and harmful outcomes. Marko Liias (sponsor of the bill) said that we must do everything we can to protect them. This legislation provides safe housing options for trans youth who may not feel welcome in their homes.
It is a time of danger for families and children, as states with a leftist bent are trying to weaken parental rights and the foundational structure of the family. In an effort to appease the transgender movement, these states are pushing dangerous policies which are harming vulnerable children. California and Washington have paved the way for government interference in the private lives and decisions of families.
