The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, seems conservative in some areas but not in others.
The latest letdown is his refusal to deal with the subject of child sex changes, a practice that no child can possibly understand the implications of.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has been slammed by a number of conservatives for refusing to push legislation banning child sex changes during a special session of the state’s legislature.
On Wednesday, Abbott published his priority list for the special session of the Texas legislature. While including some conservative ideas, such as election integrity, and border protection, notably absent from the list was any legislative plans to ban child sex change surgeries in the state. Abbott, along with Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, and House Speaker Dade Phelan, were apparently behind plans to kill such legislation in the original session, including HB 1399, which would have stripped doctors of their ability to acquire liability insurance if they engaged in child transgender surgeries or chemical castrations at their practices.National File
It’s good that he’ll address election integrity and border protection.
Both issues are important.
But why not touch an issue that’s literally harming our children?
This isn’t simply the prescription of hormones, it’s life-changing surgery that liberals endorse.
Tim Swain, An America First candidate running against Sen. Tim Scott in South Carolina, had a good take on the subject.
This is a great point.
If a child cannot drink alcohol, and we all accept that as reasonable, then why would we ever accept something far worse…
Two candidates challenging Abbott slammed him over this.
“Abbott’s refusal to add legislation to the call that protects vulnerable Texas children from Left-wing sickos who want to cause them irreversible harm and legislation banning the use of taxpayer dollars to lobby the legislature are glaring omissions that show how far out of touch he is with everyday Texans,” said Don Huffines, who has stood by the father of James Younger, who identifies as a boy with his father but is being forced to wear dresses and identify as a girl by his mother.
Lt. Col. Allen West, who joined the gubernatorial race a few days ago after months of leading the charge against child gender modification via his role as the Chairman of the Texas GOP, had further harsh words for Abbott. “First of all, if the 87th legislative session was a resounding success, why does one need to have a special session?” West queried. “I found it very disconcerting that several of the Legislative Priorities of the Republican Party of Texas such as ending taxpayer-funded lobbying, school choice, monument protection, and ending child gender modification were not listed as agenda items.”National File
It looks like Abbott is getting some challengers to the political right of him, which should make for a very interesting primary race.
Abbott is on the wrong side according to Texans too.
So you might wonder why Abbott would risk his political career over this.
The answer is most likely a classic.
In 2017, the Gender Care Clinic opened at the Family Medicine Center, run by the Doctors Hospital of Renaissance and the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in Edinburg. The clinic offers “hormone replacement consultation” among other transgender treatments. Dr Michelle Cordoba, an endocrinologist at the clinic, said that many transgender immigrants were treated at the clinic…
Initially reported by Tracy Shannon of MadMommaBear, a number of top Texas Republicans have received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Border Health PAC, which links back to the transgender clinic. Since 2015, Governor Greg Abbott received $800,000 from the PAC…National File
Looks like it’s time for Republicans in Texas to decide if this is appropriate behavior for their Governor, and to vote accordingly in the upcoming primary!
