DALLAS, Texas, October 21, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – In court today, the mother who won the right to continue the gender “transition” of her seven-year-old son testified that the boy and his twin brother are not actually biologically related to her.
In testimony this morning, Dr. Anne Georgulas revealed that James and Jude – the twins who she was in court fighting over custody of with her ex-husband, Jeffrey Younger – were created via in-vitro fertilization. While being questioned by Mr. Younger’s lawyer, Mr. Odeneal, Dr. Georgulas admitted that she used an egg donor.
The jury’s ruling today means Dr. Anne Georgulas will be able to continue “transitioning” James into “Luna,” and now has full authority to start him on puberty blockers and eventually cross-sex hormones.
Dr. Georgulas also testified that she and Mr. Younger knew the sex of the boys before they were born. She testified that they ordered a test to identify the sex of the embryos, at Mr. Younger’s request.
Mr. Odeneal alluded earlier in the trial to the fact that Dr. Georgulas is not the biological mother of the children. Mr. Younger testified that he would “never deny the motherhood” of Dr. Georgulas but said she isn’t biologically related to James and Jude.
The focus of testimony last week and this morning revolved around the imminent threat of a medical “transition” for James and the significant risks of puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.
Dr. Georgulas testified this morning that she thinks it is reasonable for the court to rule that Mr. Younger cannot call James by his given, legal name.
Dr. Georgulas also testified that she thinks the court can rule to forbid Mr. Younger from speaking to James about his biological make-up.
“I believe that is a reasonable thing for the court to find,” Dr. Georgulas stated when answering the amicus attorney’s question about the court being able to forbid Mr. Younger from speaking to James about his biological make-up.
“It presents so many risks and it scares me,” Mr. Younger said of a possible medical “transition” for his son, and cited the testimony of his expert witnesses.
Mr. Younger’s attorney was not able to call all of his side’s witnesses due to time constraints. The jury heard from Dr. Geogulas’ witnesses Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday, half of Thursday, and half of Friday. The jury heard from Mr. Younger’s witnesses half of Thursday and this Monday morning.
Judge Kim Cooks will read her ruling on possession, child support, and Dr. Georgulas’ other requests at 1:30 p.m. CST on Wednesday.
