July 2, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A hearing was held today in the ongoing tug of war between the divorced parents of James Younger, the nine-year old Texas boy whose mom refers to him as a girl named “Luna,” but whose dad wants to protect from “gender transitioning.”

James’ father, Jeffrey Younger, spoke out about his legal battle on behalf of his son earlier this week, telling LifeSiteNews’ John-Henry Westen that he was preparing for the possibility of going to jail for disregarding a court gag order.

The specter of jail time was eliminated early in today’s proceeding. Jeffrey Younger’s expressed concern about his ex-wife’s quest for one hundred percent control over all medical decisions for his son was also alleviated.

James’ mother, Dr. Anne Georgulas, had originally petitioned the court to grant her unilateral rights to make decisions regarding “gender-affirming” surgical procedures for James, but amended that request Friday evening, just hours before this morning’s hearing. 

“This litigation has been going on for six years, ever since the divorce proceeding was filed,” said Younger’s attorney, Connor Nash.  “Mom has always been the petitioner, has always been the aggressor.” “Not only does this constant litigation harm the kids, it harms [both] parties and the resources they can spend on their kids,” said Nash.

“So today, mom is trying to take exclusive control over the medical, dental, surgical, psychiatric, psychological, and educational decisions for the children,” explained Nash.  “Dad, for obvious reasons, wants to have a say in this,” he continued, “especially when one of the children is demonstrating some kind of gender issue.”

Nash noted that although James’ mom’s attorney opened by stating that today’s proceeding is not about the gender issue, he disagreed vehemently.  

“It’s entirely about the gender issue,” declared Nash, “because that’s how the counseling argument got started.  One counselor was seeing the kid as a different gender than how the kid presents at the dad’s house, so he stopped participating in the counseling and he had a substantial and compelling reason for doing so.”

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.

Thank you!

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.]

“He wanted to protect his kids,” added Nash.

At the close of the 4-hour hearing, Judge Mary Brown of the 301st Judicial District Court in Dallas, Texas, said that she continues to expect both parties to follow the “roadmap” provided in an extremely detailed 26-page order given to both parties on January 29, 2020.  

“You’re under obligation to follow the court order, and if you’re unwilling to do that, then your rights are subject to being restricted,” warned Judge Brown.

“The order that was put in place was such a detailed, scripted [outline] of how issues would be handled — more so than any case I’ve ever seen — and yet it still hasn’t really worked,” said Brown, “because it’s not being followed.”

Brown will issue her decision(s) concerning today’s hearing at a yet-to-be-disclosed future date.
