WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – The White House has threatened Alabama over a bill passed by both houses that prohibits “the performance of a medical procedure or the prescription of medication, upon or to a minor child, that is intended to alter the minor child’s gender or delay puberty.”
Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Thursday that the legislation will “harm kids.”
“But Alabama’s lawmakers and other legislators who are contemplating these discriminatory bills have been put on notice by the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services” that such legislation could violate the Constitution and federal law, Psaki said.
President Joe Biden’s administration has released several documents in recent weeks declaring support for the surgical and chemical mutilation of gender-confused kids’ bodies.
The bill, passed on Thursday and sent to Governor Kay Ivey, would prohibit the prescription of puberty blockers and prohibit pediatric “surgeries that sterilize, including [a] castration, vasectomy, hysterectomy, oophorectomy, orchiectomy, and penectomy.”
It would also outlaw procedures that “artificially construct tissue with the appearance of genitalia that differs from the individual’s sex, including metoidioplasty, phalloplasty, and vaginoplasty.”
Violators of this part of the law could face up to ten years in prison.
School officials and staff would also be prohibited from telling minor students to withhold from their parents “the fact that the minor’s perception of his or her gender or sex is inconsistent with the minor’s sex.”
Republican legislators said the bill will help children.
“We make decisions in this body all the time that are to protect children from making decisions that could permanently harm them,” Republican Alabama Representative Wes Allen said during the debate on the legislation, according to Reuters.
SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade. *Anyone - no matter where you reside - can sign this petition!
For protecting the innocence of his state's youngest schoolchildren and standing up to the bullies in the LGBT lobby, Governor Ron DeSantis has predictably been on the receiving end of sustained attacks from LGBT activists and their numerous allies in the leftist mainstream media.
And now, the Disney Corporation - one of Florida's biggest employers - has decided to interfere in politics and pick a fight with DeSantis over the new law.
BUT, Florida parents, and parents across the country, are overjoyed that a governor is finally taking seriously their concerns about the early sexualization of our nation's children!
SIGN, THANK, and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with this petition which will be delivered to Governor DeSantis' office and CC'ed to Disney, and which tells the Governor that we thank him for, and will stand with him in, protecting our schoolchildren from LGBT indoctrination.
This common sense legislation, known as the Parental Rights in Education Act, prohibits instruction pertaining to sexual orientation, "gender identity" and transgenderism in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade classrooms across the state of Florida.
And, the new law also puts stronger limits on such discussions for older children, frustrating a primary tenet of the radical left's plan to encroach upon impressionable young minds.
Media talking heads and political opponents, ranging from radical LGBT activist groups to morally corrupt corporations like Disney, dubbed HB 1557 the "Don't Say Gay" Bill.
But, the truth is that such sensitive, personal subjects are not the job of schools to cover, but the job of parents alone, who, under the bill, would be allowed to take legal action against school districts that violate its provisions.
By their hateful reaction to the bill (now law) and to Governor DeSantis, one can only assume that Disney actually despises parents and their role as the primary educator of their children, especially in, but not limited to, areas of sexual conduct and morals.
Indeed, the extreme volume of manufactured outrage on this particular piece of legislation reveals the following significant nugget of information: one of the seminal means the LGBT "community" counts on to continue attracting people into their ranks, or as so-called "allies," is by brainwashing little, unsuspecting children without their, or their parents', consent.
We know it, and they know it. And, finally, someone is doing something about it.
SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade.
Children's innocence is worth it and Disney, and its chairman Bob Chapek, should be ashamed of themselves for threatening to interfere in state politics because they are offended that children's minds will no longer be violated.
We must encourage people like Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature not to be blackmailed and not to be afraid...
If Disney wants to escalate things, then conservative and Christian parents might be finally persuaded not to visit Disneyland and Disney World, nor buy Disney products, nor watch Disney films.
Conservatives and Christians, and right-thinking people from all walks of life, need to start playing hardball with the likes of Disney.
We saw what happens when parents show their power in Virginia last year, so any further action on this matter by Florida Democrats and their allies in Disney’s executive leadership will be at their own peril.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to THANK and STAND WITH Governor Ron DeSantis for protecting children from LGBT propaganda, and from Disney's bullying, slurs and legal threats.

People who have undergone so-called “gender-affirming care” have warned about the effects of the drugs and surgeries.
Walter Heyer, a man who once lived as a woman and underwent “gender reassignment surgery,” called the White House’s support for “gender-affirming care” a form of “institutionalized child abuse.”
Helena Kerschner, a young woman who recently “detransitioned,” told Michael Knowles recently how the Internet and social media encourages gender confusion.
“Around the time I was 15 years old, I was going through a period in my life where I just didn’t have a lot of friends,” Kerschner told Knowles. “I was having body insecurities that were just really kind of tormenting me, and this led me to go online a lot.”
She went on Tumblr, where she said “gender ideology is very prominent.”
There are “social incentives” to change your pronouns and embrace gender ideology to stay in those online communities, Kerschner said.
