A Vocal Minority

A small group of people (from the picture it looks like there are less than a hundred people protesting) got a lot of coverage to spread their bigotry.
Group: Cincinnati Children's Hospital transgender clinic should 'stop experimenting on our children'

A conservative group on Monday called on Ohio’s medical board to investigate the director of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center’s transgender clinic based on testimony that all children seen by the clinic are deemed candidates for treatment.

At a news conference on the steps of the Hamilton County Courthouse, Aaron Baer, executive director of Citizens for Community Values, said an ethics complaint will be filed Monday.

“We’re demanding they research this,” Baer said. “Stop experimenting on our children and start caring for them the way Cincinnati Children’s Hospital was designed to.”

The news conference was a response to a Hamilton County Juvenile Court judge’s decision earlier this month to give legal custody of a transgender teen to his grandparents. With some conditions, visiting judge Sylvia Hendon’s decision paved the way for the teen to pursue hormone therapy, which his parents oppose.

State Rep. Tom Brinkman said at the news conference that parental rights are under attack. He intends to introduce legislation “to make sure this never happens again.”
So the party of less government is going to step in and override medical science to tell doctors what they can and cannot do.
A local group that supports transgender youth, the Living with Change Foundation, said in a statement that it agreed with Hendon’s decision “to put the safety and medical care of the child first."

“It’s unfortunate to see these individuals attack the court-ordered rights of a young member of our community," the statement said. "Through education, understanding and open dialogue, we hope more people will put the health and safety of children first instead of holding on to outdated and misguided ideals.”
They want to pass a law that will have a negative impact on children and could increase the suicide rates for children all because of their hatred for us.
