(LifeSiteNews) — The way we treat our most vulnerable has always been the mark of a civilized society and with our abortion and euthanasia laws it is obvious that we are anything but a civilized society. In fact, in today’s world, children are targeted with abuse.

Yes, children, and this should come as no surprise to us because we knew this was coming. I’m going to show you how teachers are trying to convince parents their toddlers are transsexual, schools are taking children to gay bars, and they are indoctrinating children into the woke agenda while actively concealing it from parents.

Let’s first go to Florida, where children from Wilton Manors Elementary School were recently taken on a field trip to a gay bar called Rosie’s Bar and Grill which features food and drink options with clear references to male genitalia.

Sarah Leonardi, a member of the Broward County School Board in Florida, took the children to the gay bar and posted on social media that she was honored to do so. She thanked Rosie’s for “hosting this special trip every year.” 

Now, children should not be taken to any bar, let alone a gay bar. And yet these adults who ought to know better have taken the children to a bar which has menu items such as “Naked Sweaty Lovin” and a burger called the “Ivana Hooker.”

It is disgusting how much sexual content is being shoved down the throats of children all for the sake of “wokeness.”  

Just last week, Vermont mandated that the state’s public schools make condoms available to children as young as 12.  The law states, “In order to prevent unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases [STDs], each school district shall make condoms available to all students in its secondary schools, free of charge.” 

Meanwhile, a primary school in Scotland has asked both girls and boys to come to school wearing skirts for a day as part of the “wear a skirt to school” campaign. The cross-dressing initiative is modeled on a similar Spanish campaign “Clothes have no gender.”

The boys look awkward and confused which is just obvious. Adolescence is confusing enough without boys being pressured into wearing skirts and dresses in order to make adult LGBT activists feel better about themselves.  

In fact, LGBT activists are so intent on normalizing a lifestyle that is harmful to bodies, minds, and souls that they are willing to cloak rank insanity in scientific sounding speech to attempt to convince parents that even their toddlers are showing signs of being transgendered.

Check this out from Diane Ehrensaft, an associate professor of pediatrics at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and director of mental health at their Child and Adolescent Gender Center. 

Do you know what kind of damage is caused when parents give in to this agenda and harm their children by giving them drugs which block puberty?

There are permanent effects. They can never recover full normal functioning. It is a disaster. Remember, even the woke 60 Minutes did a special on the damage this causes.

Devastating information. Yet, this is the same theme that we see repeated over and over again. For the convenience and joy of certain adults, children must suffer. Be that by divorce or “same-sex marriage” or abortion or the destructive gender ideology.

And when faced with adults or parents who refuse to let children suffer for the sake of other adults, the response is to resort to pushing the woke ideology without the parents’ consent and by hiding it from them. 

The Oshkosh Area School District (OASD), for example, which serves around 10,000 students in rural Wisconsin, has instructed teachers to forego informing parents of their child’s decision to identify as the opposite sex while in school, violating constitutionally protected parental rights in the process.

Previously, employees of the school district were bound by an administrative guideline to inform parents and get their consent when their children demand to be referred to with an opposite sex pronoun. Now, they are not to tell the parents, and the claim is that this policy will help put students first and ensure that schools and classrooms are places where all students are able to be their “true selves.”  

Schools and classrooms are supposed to be a place of learning and education. Parents send their children to school not to be indoctrinated and encouraged to lie and be deceptive to their parents, but to think and learn and grow.  

It’s getting so bad that a senior contributor at the Federalist, Stella Morabito, has published a warning to parents that if leftists are not stopped in their agenda, moms and dads soon could need a “license” to raise their own children.

She says, “We can feel it when schools hide health information from parents. We see it in legislation that allows minors to be taken in for abortions without parental knowledge or consent. It happens when schools hide from parents their child’s claim to be transgender. Judges have even stripped custody from parents who don’t want their minor child to take cross-sex hormones.”  

These dangerous trends — if left unchecked — will result in the complete destruction of the family as the basic unit of society and violate its sanctity as the domestic church.

And speaking of targeting children, the pharmaceutical industry wants in on the action. In recent COVID madness, Pfizer has released a video calling children who took the jab as a part of the clinical trials “superheroes.”  

Yes, they used kids to manipulate other children and adults into giving children the shot. Thanks to aggressive wheeling and dealing in Washington, Pfizer currently has a monopoly over America’s 5–17-year-old COVID shot market.

The FDA recently cleared the Pfizer shots for children, while conceding during its committee hearing that the government health outfit has no idea about the long-term risks to children. This is the same Pfizer that stands to make billions in profits from the vaccines, the same Pfizer that will next quarter provide results from those children that are 6 months to less than 2 years old, so of course they’re promoting children who got the shots in the trial as “superheroes.”

The CDC fell in line with Big Pharma and has endorsed the Pfizer vaccine, making 28 million children between the ages of 5 to 11 eligible for the COVID-19 shot. This is despite the admission from Dr. Eric Rubin, editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, that “we’re never going to learn about how safe the vaccine is unless we start giving it.” “That’s just the way it goes,” he said.

Dr. Ben Carson argued that the risks of the shots far outweigh the benefits, saying, “The mortality rate for children from COVID-19 is 0.025, which is very similar to the rate for seasonal flu. Do we want to put our children at risk, when we know that the risk of the disease to them is relatively small, but we don’t know what the future risks [of the vaccine] are? Why would we do a thing like that? It makes no sense whatsoever.”  

It certainly does make no sense whatsoever, and yet First Lady Jill Biden is traveling the country to encourage Americans to vaccinate their children against COVID-19. The Biden administration is also urging school districts to distribute materials promoting the COVID vaccines to children and their parents, as well as “set up school-located vaccine clinics” using federal COVID aid dollars

San Francisco has announced that it will be the first state to implement vaccine passports for children aged 5-11, banning the children from entering into restaurants, gyms, and sporting events unless they get the jab.

Not to be outdone, Costa Rica became the first country in the world to make vaccination against COVID-19 mandatory for everyone under age 18. It closed a deal with Pfizer for the purchase of 3.5 million vaccine doses, of which 1.5 million will be used for kids. 

It is time for us to fight back, especially to protect our children. And some are doing that. 

A rabbinical court in New York City ruled that “it is absolutely forbidden to administer or even to promote this (COVID-19) injection to children, adolescents, young men or women.” The ruling, entitled Official Translation of the Halachic Delineation, came after listening to “eight hours” of extensive “testimonies from experts … in the field.”

The document referred to testimonies from “fellow Jews who suffered injuries, … and also how this injection is harmful to procreation and fertility.”

The main area of concern for the rabbinical court was harm to children and young people as a result of the COVID jabs, as well as potential harm that could result from unknown long-term effects. In addition, according to the Jewish group, it is prohibited for women of the same Jewish denomination to intentionally practice “sterilization or preventing fertility.”

Due to concerns about what the jab might do to fertile women — including risks of severe blood-clotting — “it is forbidden for them to take this injection.” 

The Diocese of Madison in Wisconsin has prohibited diocesan schools and churches from hosting vaccination clinics and stated that Bishop Donald Hying’s decision was informed by his wish to remain neutral on the question of vaccination against COVID-19.

And of course, Fr. James Martin, who promotes the normalization of destructive sexual behaviors in the Church, responded by calling Bishop Hying’s decision “anti-life,” just like he called us at LifeSiteNews, “DeathSite News” for speaking Christian truths on all issues from the abortion-tainted nature of the vaccines to homosexuality.

The truth is the truth no matter what. We at LifeSite are committed to proclaiming the truth and we will do that regardless of the cost that we have to pay because we know that the Truth will set us free. St. Maximilian Kolbe, the great saint of Auschwitz said, “No one in the world can change Truth. What we can and should do is seek truth and serve it when we have found it.” 

In keeping with this commitment, we partnered with the Truth for Health Foundation on a conference about the risks of vaccination for children. All of the conference videos are available for free on LifeSite.
