HAMILTON, Ontario (LifeSiteNews) — Top Canadian pro-life and pro-family group Campaign Life Coalition urged Ontario citizens to ask their representatives to reject a proposed bill that seeks to create a radical pro-LGBT “committee” to advocate for the expansion of taxpayer funded “gender affirming” healthcare surgeries and practices.
In a press release Tuesday, Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) implored Ontario citizens to write the Members of Provincial Parliament (MPP) to voice their opposition to a proposed radical pro-LGBT Bill 17. The bill, introduced by left-wing New Democratic Party (NDP) MPP Suze Morrison, seeks to create a “Gender Affirming Health Care Advisory Committee” to advocate for expanding surgery options covered by taxpayers beyond just “genital” and “chest” gender reassignment, and to include “facial feminization, chest contouring, and electrolysis.”
“Once again, the LGBT lobby is trying to push their destructive agenda in Ontario,” wrote David Cooke, CLC’s campaigns manager. “Bill 17, if passed, would create a biased pro-LGBT government committee whose sole purpose would be to push the LGBT agenda in provincial health care policy. This Bill would pave the way to a radical expansion of transgender ‘healthcare’ services, with Ontario taxpayers footing the bill and gender-confused adults and children suffering the consequences.”
Bill 17 states:
The Gender Affirming Health Care Advisory Committee shall inquire into the following matters … 1. How to enhance coverage for and access to gender affirming health care for transgender, two-spirit, non-binary, intersex and gender diverse people in Ontario. 2. How to enhance coverage for and access to gender affirming and transition related prerequisites and procedures, including primary and secondary gender affirming surgeries and non-surgical transition related procedures … 6. How to expand insurance coverage for gender affirming treatments and transition related procedures not currently covered under the Health Insurance Act, including affirming facial feminization surgery, chest contouring and electrolysis … 8. How to define gender affirming health care procedures as life-saving procedures.
“This is not an objective, unbiased committee charged with determining ‘best practices,’” said Cooke in the press release. “This is a biased, stacked, politicized committee charged with coming to foreordained conclusions to suit the LGBT lobby.”
The dangerous ideas of Critical Race Theory (CRT) are being forced on students in public schools around the country.
This is wrong and parents have had enough! It's time to join them in saying "STOP!" to this harmful and racist propaganda.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which says "No to CRT" in public schools, and "Yes to parents' right" to strongly protest CRT.
But, what is CRT anyway and why is it so dangerous?
Critical Race Theory is a hateful system of indoctrination which teaches that one race is either superior or inferior to another race, and that the United States is inherently racist.
CRT is dangerous and hateful precisely because it teaches children who are not white to despise and envy white children simply because of their skin color. And, as a result, it also teaches white children to despise themselves simply because of the color of their skin.
CRT also erroneously teaches that American society is inherently racist, and that different, detrimental policies (like reparations for slavery and race-based pay scales) should be imposed on the population to redistribute wealth from whites to non-whites.
This type of racist/marxist propaganda should have NO place in public, taxpayer-funded schools!
And, thankfully, American parents of EVERY COLOR are raising their voices and ballots against it!
Indeed, parents understand the destructive ramifications of CRT and, despite outrageous threats from Biden's Justice Department to prosecute them, they have been strongly protesting CRT at school board meetings across the country!
And now, in the first test of its kind, a candidate who was campaigning hard against CRT just won the governorship of Virginia in a huge upset victory.
That's great news, but we now need to contact every state legislature about this crucial educational issue.
And, we need to DEMAND that they BAN Critical Race Theory from every public school in their states - both primary and high schools, and colleges!
Whereas advocates of CRT seem more intent on vengence than on teaching children of every race to respect everybody, regardless of skin color, American parents of every race understand that it is not the color of one's skin that matters, but the content of one's character (to paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr.).
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition asking all state legislatures to BAN Crititical Race Theory from public schools in their respective states.

Repudiating the bill’s claim that these procedures are “life-saving,” research shows that over 84% of gender dysphoric youth come to accept their biological sex upon entering adolescence or adulthood. Consequently, many young people who have undergone attempted gender altering procedures, including drastic procedures such as double mastectomies, later come to regret their often-irreversible decisions.
“This ‘transgender desistence’ is a normal, expected, and desired outcome, avoiding all the harms associated with sex-change surgeries and artificial hormone therapies,” said Cooke. “However, under Bill 17, there is absolutely no room for desistence. The committee formed under Bill 17 must be in lock-step with the radical LGBT lobby and its ideological demands. Members must promote only ‘gender-affirming’ care, which is a code word for chemical and surgical sex-change treatments,” continued Cooke.
Despite the radical nature of the proposed bill, CLC informed its supporters that “there was no pushback from any MPP in the Doug Ford [conservative] government. There was no word of criticism or dissent.”
The MPP who drafted the bill, Morrison, stated in the Legislature that Ontario’s healthcare plan “only” covers “genital and chest” surgeries, but other “gender-confirming” surgeries such as “facial feminization” and “chest contouring” are “essential health care” and should be covered by the taxpayer.
“Let’s be clear: Ms. Morrison is talking about butchering healthy body parts just because a person ‘feels’ gender-confused!” lamented Cooke. “This is unconscionable – and it should never be paid for with tax dollars.”
In response to the proposed bill, CLC created a webpage for citizens to access that allows them to easily submit their concerns to the Members of Provincial Parliament in Ontario.
“It is vital that this NDP private member’s Bill 17 be voted down at third reading,” concluded CLC’s Cooke. “The Doug Ford government must not expand or enhance sex-change services in Ontario. They must certainly never declare them ‘life-saving.’ They are anything but.”
