SACRAMENTO, California (LifeSiteNews) — Erin Friday, a Democratic parent of a daughter who was previously “transitioned,” warned the state not to become a “a refuge for what will be seen as the largest medical scandal in history.”
🧵Erin Friday courageously testified today in Sacramento against Scott Wiener’s SB 107, which would make California a Sanctuary State for families of children seeking “Gender-Affirming Health Care”

Her June 8 comments were in response to Senate Bill 107, pending legislation that started as a proposal about social services spending and then was stripped and redone by Democrat Scott Wiener. Wiener, who is a homosexual, has suggested that drag queen shows should be part of K-12 curriculum. He also supports children getting jabbed without their parent’s knowledge.
“Parents in the state of California have lost custody of their children merely by calling their child by their legal name,” Friday said, noting that Wiener has no kids. “California cannot just wipe away an out of state agreement addressing which parent controls the medical health of a child.”

The law would require California to become the “exclusive” jurisdiction for making child custody claims. Currently, judges can defer to other states if it is more appropriate for that state to make the determination.
The law, if enacted, would practically make California a sanctuary for a parent who wants to take away a kid from the other parent in order to have him or her chemically or genitally mutilated, sometimes called “gender-affirming care.”
At least 135 U.S. teachers and teachers’ aides have already been arrested in 2022 for child-related sex crimes, ranging from child porn possession to rape, and these are only the cases reported by the media.
And, while the vast majority of teachers are upstanding citizens, we also know some are indoctrinating our children with the LGBT ideology and practices to "make an ally of them" at a wholly inappropriate age.
This is not acceptable, and must be stopped now.
SIGN: Congress must ban federal funding for schools promoting sex or LGBT ideologies among children.
With Governor Ron DeSantis already taking action in Florida, banning instruction on sexuality and gender identity by teachers among third graders and younger, it's now time to see a federal push to effectively end such meddling in the minds of our children.
Parents have a responsibility to defend their children from those who overstep boundaries, whether that's in the form of LGBT propaganda, pornography, or other forms of sexualization in schools.
Too often the media downplays what's at stake: nothing less than the innocence of our children, and sometimes even their very lives, as this grieving Mom explained in March.
SIGN and SHARE: Congress must ban federal funding for schools who attempt to sexualize children.
76% of the arrests of teachers and aides for child-related sex-crimes this year involved assaults on students.
Jonathan van Maren reports that while one California teacher was charged with aggravated assault of a child, another was charged with 29 counts of child molestation.
A North Carolina science teacher was charged with 27 counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and 28 counts of “indecent liberties with a student.”
Parents need to construct every possible barrier to more children being abused, and one important way is to stop groomers and potential groomers from discussing sex with children in the classroom.
It is a violation of trust to introduce someone else's precious child to the minefield of sexuality, and it breaks down inhibitions that are meant to protect our most vulnerable young people.
SIGN TODAY: Pull federal funding from any school that sexualizes children
We already know that drag queens, some of whom admit to grooming, have no place in the classroom, and that teaching children about gender identities and sexual preferences is wholly inappropriate, but it's beyond time we took action.
Thank you for signing the petition today.

Friday is a leader in a group called “Our Duty” which opposes the chemical and genital mutilation of children. She noted that other countries are moving away from permissive standards.
“Look to Sweden, Finland, Norway, the U.K. and France,” she said in her testimony. “You need to be 100% confident that sterilizing children is truly life-saving,” she said.
In reality, of course, no person can change their gender and all medicine that in any way seeks to “affirm” someone is a different sex should be prohibited. But the issue can be scarier among children, when they are making irreversible decisions, often prodded, I believe, by parents and friends to block puberty and cut off healthy body parts.
Friday noted that transgenderism is a “social contagion” and parents know this from personal experience.
“We parents know it’s a social contagion as we watch clusters of friends groups come out as trans. It’s not organic,” Friday warned.
She questioned the claims that “trans medicine” prevents suicides, noting that gender-dysphoric individuals are continuing to experience “severe depression” and are killing themselves even as “trans medicine” becomes more available.
Her claims about transgenderism being a social contagion are supported by research from Eric Kaufmann, a social scientist with the University of London. Kaufmann linked the rise in identification as LGBT to it being “trendy” and tied it to mental illness and liberal political beliefs.
“Very liberal ideology is associated with identifying as LGBT among those with heterosexual behavior, especially women,” a May 30 report written by Kaufmann stated. “It seems that an underlying psychological disposition is inclining people with heterosexual behavior to identify both as LGBT and very liberal.”
He also said that identification as LGBT has risen faster than LGBT sexual behavior, “indicating that people with occasional rather than sustained feelings of attraction to the opposite sex are increasingly identifying as LGBT.”
