Montana Latest State to Ban Transgender Surgeries on Children, and Why

On May 2, 2023, we have the following story from (LifeSiteNews) — Montana became the latest state to prohibit minors from being chemically or surgically mutilated through transgender drugs and surgeries, joining North Dakota just a week after that state instituted similar protections for gender-confused kids.

The mass media, our schools, and even our political leadership in some states are on a mission to corrupt our children. The Bible makes it very clear that anyone who does harm to children will pay terrible consequences from the Lord come judgement day:

Matt 8:6 “But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, 
it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck 
and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. 

Children are not to be trifled with, but aren’t children the target of the evil one, the “prince of the power of the air”? Yes, indeed, they are his primary target. For the wicked one can take hold of your children, he takes control of the next generation. His purpose is to twist whatever God has made good. To corrupt God’s designs. Jesus is telling us the truth when He says

John 10:10 – “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

That is why the Bible says in Pvb 22:6 to protect your children, and to “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Genesis makes it very clear that there are ONLY two genders: male and female. The media, many public schools, and many of our corrupt governments, which are controlled by the “prince of the air ways”, are busy spready lies about gender, doing their best to try to confuse children and easily led parents. The fact is,

Matt 19:4 Jesus answered, “ Have you not read that from the beginning 
the Creator ‘made them male and female,’

In the beginning, God made humans male and female. Why? So they would be the natural complement of one another. The man was incomplete without the woman, and the woman needs the man to complement her natural abilities. That is why Jesus said the two as they live together would eventually grow to “become one flesh” (Matt 19:5).

In another article on Evidence to Believe I have outlined all the ways man and woman are different by design. And that its impossible to change this design, try as you may. Man and woman’s brains are different. The skeletal structure is different. Thei skin operates differently. Their brains are wired differently. They think differently. There are over 45 hard wired differences that simply can’t be changed. That is why transgenderism is a LIE, and leads to disaster for a man trying to change to a woman, or woman to a man.

We are in a Spiritual Battle in these Last Days. Parents, Protect your Children. Stand for what is Right.

The LifeSiteNews news article continues by stating that “Montana and North Dakota are not the only states that have moved to protect kids from making life-altering, potentially sterilizing decisions before they can legally consent to tattoos or obtain drivers’ licenses, for example.

Arkansas, for example, prohibits the transgender drugs and surgeries for minors, and Governor Sarah Sanders recently signed legislation which makes it possible for gender-confused individuals to sue medical professionals for chemical and surgical mutilation. Indiana joined TennesseeSouth DakotaIowa, and Mississippi in enacting laws this year that prohibit the use of puberty blockers, cross sex hormones, and surgeries in the name of “gender transitions” for minors, as previously reported by LifeSiteNews. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken executive action against the procedures while legislation works its way through the legislature.

Political Opposition to Mutilating Developing Kids Grows, as Evidence Shows Dangers

The opposition to medical “transitions” comes during a time when evidence continues to mount to disprove the alleged benefits of such drugs and procedures.

For example, a gender clinic founder and former consultant to the American Psychiatric Association recently shared her regrets with pushing puberty blockers on kids. The puberty blockers are “not as reversible as we always thought, and they have longer term effects on kids’ growth and development, including making them sterile and quite a number of things affecting their bone growth,” Dr. Susan Bradley recently said.

Endocrinologist Dr. Michael Laidlaw concluded in his analysis that puberty blockers generally lead people to more hormones and surgeries, even though “[a majority of] children who experience gender dysphoria but are allowed to go through puberty normally,…do not persist in identifying with the opposite sex.”

Research into the alleged benefits of transgender drugs and surgeries often suffers from low standards, according to an official review conducted by Florida’s surgeon general, Dr. Joseph Ladapo. The analysis concluded that there is “a lack of conclusive evidence” for “gender transitioning” and “the potential for long-term, irreversible effects,” and noted that systematic reviews on hormonal interventions “show a trend of low-quality evidence, small sample sizes, and medium to high risk of bias.” 

The Harms of Transgenderism: Evidence from credible Medical Experts, Social Scientists, and “Detransitioners.”

LifeSiteNews recently published a series on the harms of transgenderism, sourcing material from credible medical experts, social scientists, and “detransitioners.” The latter are gender-confused individuals who began to take drugs and/or underwent surgery to present as the opposite sex but have since stopped and regret their actions.
