Donate to help Jeffrey Younger save his son James from forced gender “transition”!
July 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Texas father Jeffrey Younger has been locked in a bitter court battle with his ex-wife, Dr. Anne Georgulas, over the right to protect their son from being forced into “gender transition” therapy by Georgulas, the boy’s mother, and a new LifeFunder campaign has been established to aid his legal efforts.
James Younger is the nine-year-old Texas boy caught in the middle of the raging legal battle over the permission of his mother, who is a pediatrician, to impose “gender transitioning” on him, even though James presents himself as a boy when staying with his father and introduces himself by the name James.
Georgulas, on the other hand, treats her son James as though he was a girl, dressing him in female attire and addressing him by the fabricated appellation “Luna,” with the accompanying female pronouns. Georgulas admitted in 2019 that she is not the biological mother of James and his twin brother Jude, but that the boys were conceived through in vitro fertilization using a donor egg.
James’ father Jeffrey has been fighting heroically to protect his son from the “transgender” designs of his ex-wife since at least 2018, when she petitioned the court to have full custody over James and his twin Jude, including full rights over decisions regarding “gender-affirming” surgical procedures for James when he was just six years old.
A number of years ago, Georgulas enrolled James in school as a girl, beginning in kindergarten, where she dressed him as a girl with makeup. James is referred to as “Luna” by his teachers and classmates, and he uses the girls’ bathroom. Younger was unable to stop Georgulas from enrolling James as a girl, though he had a court order at the time allowing him a 50/50 share in such decisions.
As part of ongoing court proceedings, Georgulas petitioned to have Younger banned from “coming within 500 feet of the child’s school … talking to or having any contact with any third party related to the school (parents, students, teachers, administrators, etc.) … taking any action to notify any third party related to the school (parents, students, teachers, administrators, etc) that the gender of Luna is different than a girl named Luna.” The full extent of Georgulas’ request was pared back in a 2019 ruling, when both parents had gag orders placed on them, preventing them from speaking out on the ordeal and from confirming whether their son is a boy or a girl, even to James himself.

Although restricted in what he can say about his son’s biological identity, Younger was granted joint conservatorship over James by a judge in October 2019, giving him some authority over medical decisions made on James’ behalf. Georgulas recently sued to have this right stripped from Younger, seeking a complete transfer of “medical and psychological decision making” to her alone.
Earlier this month, that request was altered to be less restrictive on Younger and his influence over James. A decision from the court is expected at a later date.
In 2019, LifePetitions launched a similar petition on behalf of Jeff Younger (the father) and his son James, asking for support and for the Texas state authorities to intervene in a unbelievable case in which the Dallas courts keep flip-flopping over which parent has parental rights and, ultimately, whether or not James must be forced to live as a girl and suffer the trauma of so-called gender "transitioning," as his mom believes he is a girl.
Incredibly, we now seem to be back at square one.
Jeff Younger currently has a gag order put on him, which prohibits him to speak out in defense of his son. But, because he has recently decided to ignore that order, to save his son from irreversible surgery, this brave Dad now faces possible arrest.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which does two things: 1) Supports Jeff Younger (again, the Dad) in his fight to save his son, James, from so-called gender "transitioning;" and, 2) Calls on Texas' Attorney General to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Mr. Younger.
CLICK HERE to WATCH the latest LifeSite interview with Jeff Younger. Hear about the latest developments with his son, as well as the real dangers of gender reassignment surgery and other “transititioning” methods.
Currently, even though he shares 50/50 parental rights to James, which has allowed him to stop the chemical castration of his son, Jeff’s ex-wife recently sued to have full parental rights and to "give her sole medical and psychological decision making."
Jeff is also being threatened with jail time from the gag order, which he believes was intentionally done to stop him from helping pass legislation in Texas to ban sex-change surgeries for minors.
Jeff says that the gag order "prohibits me from speaking on all manner of political topics. And I’m not even allowed to tell you in that gag order whether my son’s a boy or girl."
But Jeff is speaking out, no matter what, because of the real danger that his son is in if he undergoes "transition" surgery.
Indeed, so-called gender "transitions" present many unsafe effects, some desired, some undesired, though all dangerous for one's physical and mental health.
Puberty-blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones have not been proven safe. For example, the FDA has NOT approved Lupron and GnRH analogues for use in blocking puberty.
Risks associated with these pharmaceuticals include: low bone density, high blood pressure, weight gain, abnormal glucose tolerance, breast cancer, liver disease, thrombosis, and cardiovascular disease.
And, additional risks and potential harms include:
For Males: Stunting of penile and testicular growth, sexual dysfunction, prevention of spermatogenesis, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.
For Females: A menopause-like state, blockade of normal breast development, decreased blood flow to vagina and vulva, sexual dysfunction, thinning of vaginal epithelium, vaginal atrophy, prevention of menses/ovulation, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.
In other words, these medications can sterilize and cause medical harm to vulnerable, confused children.
And, the stunning part about this: studies show that 85% of gender confused children eventually become comfortable with the sex of their bodies.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports Jeff Younger, a Texas Dad, who is fighting to prevent his son, James, from being "turned into a girl." At the same time, we appeal to Texas State Attorney General, to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Jeff.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE DANGERS OF PUSHING GENDER IDEOLOGY ON CHILDREN:
Many eminent psychiatrists are now speaking against the faulty notion that sex is fluid and a matter of choice. In particular, they are concerned about the welfare of children and young people in this regard.
Dr Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, who has researched the occurrence of gender dysphoria for 40 years, has stated that the notion of gender fluidity "is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges". [See more below.]
And, the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) is definite about the promotion of transgenderism as being harmful public policy:
"Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: 'XY' and 'XX' are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived, either male or female…Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents…” [Read more below.]

Pushing back against Georgulas’ relentless LGBT-driven impositions, Younger has been fighting not only to stop James’ mother from forcing chemical castration on him but also to have laws passed in the state of Texas that protect all children from the barbaric practice.
Younger explained in an interview with LifeSiteNews co-founder and editor-in-chief John-Henry Westen that the puberty blockers that could be given to his son if Georgulas acquires full custody would “block the normal growth of the skeleton, that’s one of the first major problems.” He added that in Scandinavia, where puberty blockers have been in use for decades, adults who had used the drugs as children are now experiencing “life-threatening osteoporosis.”
Defining puberty as “a set of physical, psychological, and social changes that occur in a specific order, at a specific time in a child’s development,” Younger described how halting this process, even if one was to start it up again after a long period of time, means that normal development “is not recoverable.”
In addition to the irreparable damage caused by interfering with the natural course of puberty, Younger explained that cross-sex hormones, often prescribed to children on puberty blockers, “permanently sterilize the child.”
“Rights are concomitant with duties,” Younger asserted. Consequently, with his right to free speech, Younger said he has a fatherly duty to “inform citizens of what the government is doing to children, what the courts are doing to children, and to press the government to change these laws” which allow life-altering “gender transition surgeries.”
“There’s no way I’m ever going to stop doing that and there is no legitimate government that can stop me from doing that,” he added.
“In order to exercise my parental rights prudently … it’s not possible for me to set an example of a moral father without me following the moral law, which is higher than the statutory law or any illegal order from a judge,” Younger declared, breaking his gag-ordered silence in the process.
Younger is a proud proponent of leading by example, upholding that “it is the only way you can lead children.”
“They will do what you do, not what you say. If I don’t stand up and do the right thing now, my sons will learn to be cowards from me. That is not going to happen,” he said. “There is no possible way in which I can follow this gag order and let other children across this country suffer.”
“I’m going to use all of my power to make [child gender transitioning] not only illegal but socially unacceptable, morally reprehensible, and to cast this out of our culture altogether.”
“I am not going to rest until it happens,” Younger concluded.
