While Americans struggle with inflation, the backlash from COVID-19, and being on the brink of another recession, the Democrats are desperately campaigning, hoping to gain voters before the 2022 midterms. Over the last two years, the Biden administration has been somewhat lackluster when it comes to leadership and the promises made during the 2020 Presidential election. Although the GOP continues to criticize the Democrats for their efforts at the Southern border, in states like Arizona, Democrat Senator Mark Kelly dominates the polls with a 12-point margin over Republican Blake Masters. And while voters in the state might view Kelly as the right man for the job, a new ad from American Principles Project accused the Democrat of supporting “policies pushing transgender drugs and surgeries on kids.”
In the video, which is featured below, child psychologist Miriam Grossman discusses some of the dangers being presented to children when it comes to gender identity and sexual orientation. “We have an explosion of kids, rather suddenly, making an announcement that they are transgender.” She added, “Kids are told, elementary school, middle school, if your parents don’t go along with this, they’re not on your side. There are no gold standard studies about transgender kids. Zero. We have to go out there and stop this; our children deserve better.”
The video includes a narrator warning, “Democrats like Mark Kelly and Joe Biden support policies pushing dangerous transgender drugs and surgeries on kids, taking away parental rights.” The bill referenced in the aid was the Equality Act, which would erase the definition of biological sex. Melissa Moschella also explained to the Heritage Foundations that it placed “a radical ideology with sweeping implications on all Americans.”
As for parents who were concerned about the ideologies being taught to their children, Moschella insisted that the legislation would make questioning a child’s views on sex neglect or even abuse. “To understand how radically the Equality Act would undermine parental rights, imagine that you are the parent of an adolescent girl who… begins to identify as transgender after watching video testimonials of transgender-identifying adolescents on Tumblr, despite never previously having expressed discomfort with her gender. If you are worried that this is a social-media-induced fad and resist your daughter’s demands to call her by a new name, buy her a chest binder and men’s clothing, and allow her to begin taking testosterone, your caution and skepticism could be considered abusive or neglectful.”
Melissa Moschella concluded,” With the help of school officials, your daughter might begin presenting herself as a boy at school — adopting a new name and pronouns, using the boy’s restroom and locker room, and participating in boys’ sports, etc. — while she and the school officials work together to keep you, the parent, in the dark about what is going on.”
