Make sure you have taken your blood pressure and heart meds.

This story about a trans girl is making my blood boil! It is something out of the fifties and not the 21st century.
Is Christian-run hospital forcing this 5-year-old transgender girl to be a boy?
LGBTQ Nation

A Facebook post from the mom of a transgender girl has gone viral, as concerned friends and advocates plead for help for a family in Illinois. Kathy Blazer-Williams wrote that a five-year-old trans girl named Stevie, with a host of medical issues, is not only being kept from her parents by a faith-based hospital, but is being forced to live as a male, the sex she was assigned at birth.

A lawyer representing the family told LGBTQ Nation this all started last month, with the parents trying to get medical help for their daughter, who has type 1 diabetes and epilepsy. Although they agreed to something called a “therapeutic separation,” the attorney confirmed the parents never signed any documents surrendering their parental rights or authorizing any treatment of her gender identity, and in fact have attempted to have her moved to another hospital.
And it gets worst!
But last week, the Illinois Department of Children and Families reversed an earlier decision to not get involved. DCFS took protective custody of Stevie on Monday, according to the family’s attorney, Rina Infelise. She told LGBTQ Nation in a phone interview Sunday evening that this kind of move requires a legal hearing, and so both the parents and DCFS are due in court this week to face a judge, who will decide Stevie’s fate.
Here in Connecticut we are trying to pass a bill banning Conversion Therapy but in this case it is the state that is doing the therapy to make her cisgender.

The Illinois Department of Children and Families is now forcing conversion therapy on the child, conversion therapy has been denounced by all of the major healthcare professional associations as being harmful on the child. If I hear anything new about the hearing that is schedule for this week I’ll pass it along to you.

And what gets me is that our so called lesbians and gay allies are on the state’s side saying that the child is too young to know her gender! Their comments shows their totally lack of knowledge about gender dysphoria.

Grrr…
