(LifeSiteNews) – Jeff Younger, who has been battling for custody of his twin boys for years, fears that a recent court decision will allow his ex-wife to move to California to circumvent a prior ruling and chemically castrate one of the twins.
Younger’s ex-wife, Anne Georgulas, has treated their now 10-year old son James like a girl since he was three, calling him “Luna,” clothing him in dresses, and presenting him in school as a girl. Amid a legal battle that granted her full custody of the children in 2021, Georgulas admitted multiple times under oath that she intends to “transition” James to a girl.
Younger argues that his ex-wife led James to socially present as a girl before he was mature enough to understand its implications. He previously explained to LifeSiteNews that James presented as a boy when he was with Younger, and a former LifeSiteNews reporter who met James observed that he “has the energy and spirit of a young boy,” and engaged in typical boy behaviors, including wrestling.
Dallas District Judge Mary Brown ruled September 21 that Georgulas can move James and his twin brother Jude anywhere in the U.S., and that she is not to disclose their future location to their father. She is currently located in the Dallas area, as is Younger.
Moreover, any of Younger’s visits to his children would have to be “supervised” in the county in which the children will reside, according to the ruling, as Jeff Morgan, a family law reform activist, explained in a YouTube video.
Younger told LifeSiteNews that Georgulas testified under oath in the most recent court hearing that she intends to move to California, which will likely allow her to bypass a prior court ruling that required Younger’s consent to perform “transgender” surgery on, or give puberty blockers to his son.
California has passed a bill that essentially prevents enforcement of other states’ laws that would “penalize individuals from obtaining gender-affirming care that is legal in California,” The Epoch Times shared.
“It is the public policy of the state that an out-of-state arrest warrant for an individual based on violating another state’s law against providing, receiving, or allowing their child to receive gender-affirming health care or gender-affirming mental health care is the lowest law enforcement priority,” states the California bill, which reached the desk of Gov. Gavin Newsom on September 9 and, if not vetoed, will become law.
Mark Houck, a pro-life Catholic father of 7, became the latest victim of an FBI raid and arrest on the morning of Friday September 23 — for supposed “FACE (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) (Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances) Act” violations — at his rural home as his children looked on “screaming.”
The arrest and raid stems from an altercation with a Planned Parenthood worker.
According to Mark’s wife Ryan-Marie, a “pro-abortion protester” would verbally harrass Mark's 12-year old son — hurling vulgar and derogatory statements.
When the protestor encroached in the boy's space, Mark defended his son. At that point, “Mark shoved him away from his child, and the guy fell back,” Ryan-Marie recounts.
The protestor was not injured, but he tried to sue Mark Houck for the assault but his case was thrown out of court in the early summer.

The description of this arrest sounds like it took place in a totalitarian state. A tragic unraveling of Justice in America. https://t.co/e3vEID7E39— Bishop J. Strickland (@Bishopoftyler) September 25, 2022
If convicted, Houck faces up to a maximum of 11 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and fines of up to $350,000, according to the Justice Department.
Additional conservative pro-life leaders have weighed in — this is why we need your support ASAP.
“Just in the last few days we’ve seen some pretty glaring examples of what appear to be instances of DOJ [Department of Justice] overreach. You’ve got a Catholic father of seven who formed a group designed to encourage young men to be faithful to their commitments, arrested in front of his seven children just recently. You’ve got all these instances of overreach. It’s deeply concerning to us all. These are all things we’re gonna be looking into.” — US Senator Mike Lee
Tell the Houck family that you stand by them!

“As soon as she’s there for a year, my sons will become citizens of California,” Younger said. “And then it becomes legal for them to castrate James. So they’ll chemically castrate him.”
Younger told The Epoch Times that he intends “to file an emergency stay in response to the Sept. 21 court order,” and will “ask that a previous jury verdict, allowing 50-50 custody and no child support, be reaffirmed.”
In 2021, Judge Brown gave full custody of the parents’ twins to Georgulas in a temporary order, after Younger was late in making child support payments, medical support, and interest. He paid his past-due support only “after the motion for enforcement was filed,” according to the judge’s ruling, the Times shared.
Younger had also ignored a court order prohibiting any discussions with the media.
Brown said in the September 21 ruling that Younger disregarded her order to attend therapy sessions, and that he had entirely neglected visits to his children over the past 13 months.
Younger told the Times that he was ordered not to change James out of a dress when he visited, which he firmly refused.
“I’ve told the judge I’ll just go to jail over that,” Younger said. “I’m not harming my son.”
He added that the judge had ordered him to pay hundreds of dollars for each supervised visit, and that “he was not allowed to see his children individually, and had to see them together.”
Younger further believes that the supervised visits were “a setup,” so that the court-ordered observer could complain about his refusal to call the boy Luna.
Transgendering children is ‘child abuse’
Younger has previously pointed out to LifeSiteNews how dangerous the “transitioning” methods are to psychological and physical health. He explained how “puberty blockers block the normal growth of the skeleton,” and mentioned the problems with cross-sex hormones, which can cause permanent sterilization.
Dr. Michelle Cretella, president of the American College of Pediatricians, says encouraging transgender identity is child abuse.
“Indoctrinating preschool kids with the lie that you can be trapped in the wrong body, again, that’s disrupting their normal reality testing and cognitive development. Those things are abusive,” Cretella stated during a Heritage Foundation forum about transgenderism.
Dr. David Bell, a renowned psychiatrist and former president of the British Psychoanalytic Society, has also affirmed that gender transitioning poses “serious and irreversible damage” to children.
Georgulas, a pediatrician, has been granted the “sole right” to manage psychiatric and psychological treatment of the twin boys. This order came as a surprise to Younger as it was neither mentioned in court nor recommended by the custody evaluator, Benjamin Albritton.
Georgulas has taken James to a homosexual counselor who diagnosed him with gender dysphoria. Younger said that with the counselor, who affirms that James is a “girl,” James has identified as a boy.
“When I took James to see his gay counselor who affirms him as a girl, he went as a boy. She put two sticky notes down onto her desk. One had James on it. One had his fake girl name. She said, which name do you want to be called, pick up the sticky note. He picked up James,” Younger told LifeSiteNews.
Walt Heyer, a former transgender and current activist for those who regret their “transitions,” wrote in a piece published at The Federalist, “The glaring disparity between a child’s preferred identity when in the presence of one parent versus the other should cause a therapist to reassess, perhaps nullify the diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and terminate any steps toward transition. But in the case of James, this hasn’t happened.”
