Kids are being Sterilized in Indiana

“Gender-affirming” care, a nearly unresearched group of medical interventions that can leave the patient maimed for life, is being marketed to Indiana’s children, completely disregarding the opinion of their parents.

Children are being placed on cross-sex hormones and puberty-blocking drugs, drugs used for chemical castration. Often, the infertility is permanent. Girls are being convinced that they need double mastectomies’, and minor boys are being convinced they need to have their genitals removed.

This is happening. This is not a joke, or a hoax. It’s real, and it’s happening here in Indiana at Riley Childrens Hospital and a number of other healthcare facilities around the state.

Christians need to stand up and make their voices heard. In January, when the Indiana General Assembly begins their 2023 legislative session, we will be supporting the Saving Adolescents from Experimentation (SAFE) Act, which prohibits experimental and dangerous transgender surgeries on children.

More and more in recent months, we’ve heard the chilling stories of de-transitioners from around the country. Often they’re still minors, just beginning to come to grips with the long term effects of choices they made while they were far too young to give consent.

Chloe Cole is one such detransitioner. She started on puberty blockers and testosterone at age 13, underwent a double mastectomy at 15, and transitioned back to female a year later at 16.

The opponents of this bill will have a lot on their side. The hospitals and clinics are getting rich from these dangerous, expensive surgeries; and this money is pouring into lobbying groups to ensure that this barbaric treatment is allowed to continue. Christians know, however, that we must fight to defend children. We cannot allow the medical industrial complex’s fascination with wokeness to cause irreparable damage to children who are unable to give consent.

Here at the Indiana Family Institute, we are educating Hoosiers on the SAFE Act and making sure that once the legislative session starts that people are telling their State Representative and State Senator that this bill matters. To extend our reach, would you consider making a donation to IFI, to help us reach our year-end goal of $100,000? Every dollar we receive will be stewarded well, whether you’re able to give $25, $50, $200 or more.

Together, we can make sure that no other children go through what Chloe is going through right now.
