DALLAS, Texas, October 23, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A LifeSite petition supporting Jeffrey Younger – the man who has fought to keep his seven-year-old son James from being “transitioned” into a girl by his mother – has already been signed more than 25,000 times.

A jury ruled against Mr. Younger on Monday. Judge Kim Cooks will read her ruling on the case today.
LifeSite stories relating to Mr. Younger’s struggle have gained well over 350,000 views. The petition is still growing at a phenomenal pace.
“This case has really touched a nerve,” stated Scott Schittl, one of LifeSite’s campaign coordinators. “The vast majority of people are incensed by the jury’s decision and believe that something must be done about this injustice.”
“They also believe that something must be done to ensure that this type of miscarriage of justice does not happen again,” Schittl concluded.
The petition is addressed to Mr. Younger, and is also CC’ed to Judge Kim Cooks and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
The petition text reads:
I stand with you in your fight to protect your son from being harmed.
It is madness that someone –with the state's protection – would impose on a child a gender they clearly are not.
I am praying with you during this time of great suffering and will help you in any way I can.
Cooks’ orders today could include prohibiting Mr. Younger from calling James by his legal name, and they will also clarify specifics including possession schedules, child support, and other details.
Anyone may still sign this petition as a sign of prayerful solidarity with Mr. Younger and James.
These signatures of support will be personally delivered to Mr. Younger and Gov. Greg Abbott.
LifeSite will be asking Gov. Abbott to work with the Texas legislature to ensure that this type of manipulation and abuse of a child cannot take place in Texas again, and that, at a minimum, some legal action will be taken to guarantee that no medical assistance or off-label use of medication can be used to in the so-called “transition” of minors, including James Younger.
