Illinois Senate Democrats Propose Bill Labeling Parents ‘Child Abusers’ for Opposing Transgender ‘Care’ for Their Own Children

A Democrat lawmaker from the Chicago suburbs in Illinois has introduced legislation that could classify parents as “child abusers” if they object to their children undergoing transgender medical procedures or obtaining abortions.

Democratic State Representative Anne Stava-Murray, hailing from the southwestern suburb of Naperville, has introduced a bill aimed at altering the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act.

Called HB876, the proposed legislation seeks to redefine “child abuse” to encompass the withholding of puberty blockers, other transgender-related medical treatments, and abortion services from minors.

In a Facebook post detailing her bill, Stava-Murray asserts that providing transgender-related care to children “greatly improves mental health and well-being.”

She adds that “transgender children are more likely to experience anxiety, depression, and at greater risk of substance abuse and homelessness when their immediate caregivers are rejecting or hostile” to transgendering “care.”

The state representative then brings up the commonly held belief that children who are denied transgender care are at a greater risk of suicide.

“It is important to know– and quite alarming, that research finds that transgender youth are at greatest risk of suicide (compared to their non-transgender peers) as a result of rejection, bullying, and other victimization,” she wrote.

“In other words, for some transgender youth, family support can be the difference between life and death. Parents and caregivers can find resources, peer support, and professional guidance to help along the journey, and to ensure that your child cannot just survive, but thrive,” the Democrat added.

“Trans youth desperately need us to educate ourselves,” Stava-Murray concluded. “The lack of education of many on this topic quite literally costs them their lives.”

Recent studies are increasingly indicating that “gender-affirming care” does not alleviate the mental health issues of patients.

However, the bill references language from Illinois’ amended Reproductive Health Act to detail:

Treatment for gender dysphoria or “affirmation of an individual’s gender identity or gender expression” under the amended act says it includes “all supplies, care, and services of a medical, behavioral health, mental health, surgical, psychiatric, therapeutic, diagnostic, preventative, rehabilitative, or supportive nature that is not unlawful under the laws of this State.”

The bill also outlines the withholding of “primary medical care,” which encompasses the withholding of medications and vaccines.

If approved, the bill would broaden the requirements for doctors and other officials to report cases as “child abuse.”
