California is Now A ‘Refuge for Trans Kids’

California already an ‘abortion sanctuary state,’ will now be a ‘transgender state of refuge’

By Katy Grimes, January 2, 2023 2:40 am

State Sen. Scott Wiener celebrated passage of his bill, SB 107, in August, which just became law January 1st, and now erodes parents’ rights by allowing minor children to travel to California for trans procedures, puberty blockers, known as “gender-affirming health care.”

SB 107 allows non-parent adults to bring minor children to California for experimental and damaging transgender medical interventions, without the knowledge or consent of their parents.

SB 107 now makes California a destination state for “transgender” procedures for minors.

Sen. Wiener claimed that “this is an accepted medical practice,” to the Assembly Appropriations Committee in August. He described the “accepted medical practice” as “Parents allowing their children to have health care.”

A lawyer/mother testified in August that SB 107 is unconstitutional and violates parental rights by offering protections to non-custodial parents to abscond to California for trans gender treatments. “Every Attorney General in the country should be filing lawsuits against California for sterilizing or experimenting on minors,” she said.

The Protect Child Health Coalition warned:

“SB107 would create a series of unprecedented and dangerous exceptions to California law and customary practice regarding cooperation with other states’ legal proceedings. For example, it would forbid the release of medical information, even in a civil or criminal proceeding and even in response to a valid subpoena.”

“Even more shocking is what the law says about parental custody determinations. It would actually authorize parental kidnapping (when a non-custodial parent illegally takes a child from the parent who has legal custody) if the purpose of the kidnapping is to subject the child to radical gender transition procedures.

Never addressed were the “de-transitioner” warnings and experiences of trauma, regret, and often normal issues of confused teenagers. The New York Post did an in-depth report on this important aspect of regret, in which they identified many young people seeking to transition, but are doing so without a proper mental-health evaluation.

“According to an online survey of detransitioners conducted by Dr. Lisa Littman last year, 40% said their gender dysphoria was caused by a mental-health condition and 62% felt medical professionals did not investigate whether trauma was a factor in their transition decisions,” the Post reported.

“I saw children being fast-tracked onto medical solutions for psychological problems, and when kids get on the medical conveyor belt, they don’t get off,” Marcus Evans said. He was the Clinical Director of Adult and Adolescent Services at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, a publicly funded mental-health center in the UK where many youth seek treatment for gender dysphoria, the Post reported. “But the politicization of the issue was shutting down proper clinical rigor. That meant quite vulnerable kids were in danger of being put on a medical path for treatment that they may well regret.”

This bill was rammed through California legislative committees by the state’s Democrats, and signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom ignoring any real “transition” data or real life accounts.

Many have charged that this is being done surreptitiously, targeting vulnerable minor foster children in California on Medi-Cal funded transgender hormones and surgeries without permission of a parent or guardian.

Is this now law because transitioning teens is becoming such a lucrative industry in medicine?

SB 107 was co-sponsored by Equality California, Planned Parenthood, and Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis.

  1. Refuge = Freak show…

    As in San Franfreakshow…

    As in where Scott (“Would you like to see my”) Weiner comes from…

    Happy New Year, fellow California Globe brothers and sisters….
    Resist them with everything we’ve got….

      1. Adam Schiff is probably as excited as Paul Pelosi. They have turned California into their own candy warehouse.

  2. It is extremely creepy how SB 107 received what looked like “do-or-die” passage in the legislature and was then so blithely signed by the governor last year. Looking at Sen Wiener’s shocking upside-down comments in the video Katy linked to, and considering the extremely strong testimony against SB 107 in committee and elsewhere —- not least the very effective testimony of a brave young female de-transitioner, Chloe Cole —– as well as the horrors already evident on the surface, and never mind what must have been significant citizen backlash, we know there must have been something decidedly funky afoot regarding the passage of this legislation. Incredible as it seems, IS it just about the MONEY, as Katy asked, and about building a Transgender Industrial Complex in CA, or is it about the bad guys again seeking to further undermine the family, common sense, truth, and thus civilization? Or both?
    The good news is it does appear that this evil agenda item is finally beginning to collapse on its own, now that the truth of it is spreading like wildfire, unimpeded by social media attempts to censor —– as “misinformation” —- the de-transitioners and others’ stories. Just as other such absurd items do appear to be collapsing on their own (e.g. everything Covid-related) as the truth about them spreads and prevails over the left’s lies. Fingers crossed that this continues.

  3. Scott really knows how to play to his constituents with the most money.
    What I don’t understand is how he has gotten so much dirt on his comrades in the legislature to get their votes.
    IF he really cared about his district he would be finding ways to combat a 25% commercial vacancy rate.
    Truly a self-serving politician of the highest order.
    S.F., you voted for this clown, you own it, now watch your city rot!

  4. Their agenda IS collapsing, just not the funding behind the 24/7/365 media liars who have the loudest and most repetitive (unwanted) messages. Just look at the people in California on the whole, most people are still not brainwashed lunatics, and just like Chinese who are able to mentally resist the communist propaganda they are taught until they are able to escape to America to be free. Compare 2020 to today, Californians are catching on at a much faster rate than the ones staying in the ignorance they are trying to promote.

  5. Trans kids are Victims of predators that brain wash them into thinking they are not what God made them. There will be consequences!

  6. SB 107 allows non-parent adults to bring minor children to California for experimental and damaging transgender medical interventions, without the knowledge or consent of their parents.

    Sounds like legalizing kidnapping

  7. Where in the original true meaning of sanctuary does it say to support and protect permanent mutilation of a child’s body?
    : a consecrated place: such as
    : the ancient Hebrew temple at Jerusalem or its holy of holies
    : the most sacred part of a religious building (such as the part of a Christian church in which the altar is placed)
    : the room in which general worship services are held
    : a place (such as a church or a temple) for worship

    It is insanity. Children need love and support. They do not need to be convinced or persuaded to hate the body they were born with.
    I will not be surprised to read a future headline that Scott Wiener is arrested for grooming young boys on the internet, or exposing himself in a restroom, etc.
    This law is not a sacred act nor does it protect the fragile psyche of the young mind. It is an abomination.
    Psalms 139:14 – I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
    The policy makers in this state do not know better than God!
    Leave the children alone.

  8. “Non-parent guardian, eh?”
    I think wise district attorneys in other states will round up their 6%’er criminals and send them to California to be changed into women so they won’t be quite so dangerous. California may once more lead the nation and become a hub of progress!

  9. This has got to be the most ethically irresponsible law ever. But then again look at the looser running this beautiful State.
    This law will create more homeless and lawsuits against California that the taxpayer will pay out…
    Gross negligence and these Reps should all be held responsible.
    God Bless California
