MADRID, Spain, July 6, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The Spanish cabinet passed a proposed bill last week that would allow gender-confused people, including minors as young as 12, to change their gender on official documents upon request.
The draft law removes requirements that individuals use cross-sex hormones for at least two years and present a gender dysphoria diagnosis to change their legal documents in accordance with their so-called “gender identity,” Evangelical Focus reported. The legislation still requires another reading in the cabinet and approval by the Spanish parliament.
Under the proposed “trans law,” anyone over 16 could change their documents by filling out a request, without witnesses, and confirming it three months later. Minors as young as 12 could also change their officially-recognized gender if given permission by their parents, or by a judge, if their parents refuse consent.
Even children under 12 would be able to register with a different name, though their legal gender could not be amended. Requests would be completed as early as four months after initial application, according to Catalan News.
The radical legislation additionally would ban consensual therapies to change sexual orientation, allow lesbians to access artificial reproduction methods through Spain’s national health service, and let unmarried lesbian couples register as biological mothers of children.
“The Trans Law is a serious attack against the equality of Spaniards and the guardianship of parents,” Spanish conservative party VOX said last week.
Around 50 feminist groups have also denounced the bill, calling it “regressive.”
“These legal reforms are regressive and it is essential to stop them in order not to lose the protection of the specific rights against gender-based oppression,” a statement by the Confluencia Feminista federation read.
Spain’s leftist ruling coalition has been negotiating a transgender identification bill for months, and the Spanish Congress killed a previous draft in May due to infighting between the dominant Socialist party and the hard-left Unidas Podemos party. The new proposal “does not essentially modify the scope” of the old version, Evangelical Focus said.
Hungary recently took a major step to protect children from having their innocence destroyed and being sexualized by LGBT propaganda in schools and by pornography in the mass media.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which expresses agreement and respect for the wishes of the sovereign nation of Hungary to protect its children against the onslaught of LGBT indoctrination propaganda and pornography.
Since passage of the bill the fake news outlets from Europe to America have predictably begun to fabricate outrage and, or, simply lie about the contents of the bill. And, the corrupt European Union has also now started to attack Hungary's efforts to protect children.
For doing the hard and good thing, Hungary now needs our support.
The bill, which was passed last week, specifically prohibits showing pornographic material or content portraying homosexuality or transgenderism to minors under the age of 18. Other measures include a registry of sex offenders, regulations on sexual education, and stronger policies against child pornography.
This policy is to be welcomed as a pro-active measure against the liberal and LGBT propaganda machine which is steadily encroaching on Hungary's borders, and which threatens to tear down Christian civilization altogether.
Indeed, the same week that this law was passed in Hungary, Vienna's (Austria) deputy mayor distributed "Rainbow Family" information boxes to 350 kindergartens in the Austrian capital. And, Vienna is only about 50 miles from the Hungarian border!
But, never satisfied with corrupting the children of their own countries, LGBT activists and their accomplices in the EU have been quick to castigate Hungary, claiming that the Budapest government has "discriminated" against homosexuals with their law to protect children, and in doing so, has violated EU law.
However, Hungary's Justice Minister, Judit Varga, set the record straight in an interview with Hungarian journalists, stating:
"This is one of a number of declarations declaring certain Hungarian measures to be contrary to EU law without a thorough examination. The fake news that has taken wing in these statements is completely unfounded.
In Hungary's view, the legislation has nothing to do with EU law. The issue of subsidiarity and constitutional, national identity is a matter for the Member States. Furthermore, the European Charter of Human Rights also says that a parent has the right to determine the direction of their children's development in a culturally traditional background."
And, more broadly, Viktor Orbán, Hungary's Prime Minister, had this to say about Hungary's new law:
"The current left-wing campaign against Hungary is further proof that today, the left is the enemy of freedom, because instead of freedom of speech, they want political correctness as defined by them, and hegemony of opinion instead of a pluralism of ideas.
The new Hungarian law does not conflict with any lofty ideals or European laws. The new Hungarian law simply states clearly that only parents can decide on the sexual education of their children. Education in schools must not be in conflict with the will of parents; it must at most be supplementary, its form and content must be clearly defined and it must be subject to parental consent.
Parents also rightly expect that on platforms used by our children, pornography, sexuality for its own sake, homosexuality and gender reassignment programs should not be available. These restrictions must also be defined with surgical precision. In Hungary, no one has a say in how adults live their lives. In our view, a free adult should not have to give an account of his life in front of any secular authority — only before God when the time comes."
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports the government of Hungary in their passage of this pro-active child protection measure banning LGBT propaganda and pornography for under-18s.

Passage of the bill would make Spain one of more than a dozen countries, including Argentina and the Netherlands, that have already imposed “gender self-determination” policies.
Extreme pro-LGBT measures have advanced across Europe in recent months, as in Germany, where the federal government introduced a bill similar to Spain’s “trans law” in March before pulling it amid protests. Italy is currently considering another LGBT bill, which the Vatican has condemned over concerns that it would criminalize Italian Catholics who reject same-sex “marriage” and adoption.
Hungary, by contrast, approved legislation last month to ban promotion of transgenderism and homosexuality to children, after having enshrined the natural family and biological sex in the national constitution last year. Several European nations, including Spain, Germany, Italy, and Ireland, have since signed a joint statement calling on the European Union to retaliate against Hungary, which European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen has vowed to do.
