July 6, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The U.S. Navy is piling yet more pressure on sailors to get the COVID-19 jab by requiring randomized COVID-19 tests for the non-vaccinated, and promising to lift this requirement once a threshold of sailor vaccination per command is met.
A Navy lieutenant — who is known to LifeSiteNews but wishes to remain anonymous — shared a directive from his Executive Officer explaining that a non-vaccinated sailor from his command would be chosen at random every two weeks to be tested for COVID-19, as per new Naval COVID-19 guidance. The new procedure is known as Sentinel Surveillance Testing (SST).
A Naval Safety Officer also noted in an email that restriction of movement (ROM) is imposed on those who test positive for COVID-19. During ROM, sailors must isolate themselves in their residence for two weeks, leaving only for “routine activities” such as doing their laundry and exercising outdoors, provided they keep a distance of more than six feet from others. Sailors under ROM are barred from fitness centers, messing facilities, and other “widely used support services.”
Last year, the New York Times reported, “The standard [COVID-19] tests are diagnosing huge numbers of people who may be carrying relatively insignificant amounts of the virus,” and that “up to 90 percent of people testing positive” for COVID-19 are thus “not likely to be contagious.”
Even more pressure to vaccinate comes from Navy stipulations that 75 percent immunization of the command lessens the requirement to one COVID-19 test a month, and 85 percent immunization will negate the requirement completely.
“This is segregating the haves and have nots and making those resisting to suffer more,” said the anonymous Navy lieutenant.
The SST requirement adds to the list of restrictions imposed only on the unvaccinated in the Navy: face masks, physical distancing, testing in and out prior to deployment, and post-deployment ROM.
For example, “Non-immunized personnel returning to [the U.S. mainland] from deployment are required to have a negative viral test result no more than three days before travel into the US; be tested 3–5 days after arrival and stay home and self-quarantine for seven full days, even if the test is negative.”
Only those who have received the COVID-19 jab may leave their ship to “take advantage of base services” in overseas ports. The vaccinated likewise “are not required” to undergo the isolating ROM-sequester.
On the other hand, the unvaccinated who are even suspected of exposure to COVID-19 are required to quarantine, according to current Navy COVID-19 guidance, which states, “Asymptomatic personnel who are not immunized and are suspected of exposure shall quarantine in accordance with (IAW) CDC and local medical guidance.”
The Navy lieutenant known to LifeSiteNews has decried the policies such as restricting leave to those “vaccinated” against COVID-19 as “coercion.”
In a comment on the new regular testing requirement for the unvaccinated, he said, “This is amounting to harassment and discrimination of those who object to what is going on.”
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.]

The lieutenant had previously disclosed to LifeSiteNews several stories of sailors who didn’t want to receive the COVID-19 jab, but did so anyway because of the freedoms it opened up for them. “They want their freedom back, they want their lives back like so many people in the world do since we’ve been locked under COVID restrictions and tyranny,” he said at the time.
