As if you did not need anymore proof that the citizens of the United States of America have lost their minds the state of Oregon gives you a cargo ship full of proof. Oregon has a statewide policy that allows 15 year old youths to receive puberty suppressing drugs and gender reassignment surgery without parental consent. These procedures are provided by taxpayer dollars. Below is a Fox News report on this ridiculous policy. I first read of Oregon’s policy on Denny Burk’s blog. I have included a link to his blog below as well. I want you to consider all of the dumb things we did when we were 15 years old and now Oregon has adopted this policy that will allow some children to become transgender without parental counsel or permission. Dr. Paul McHugh of John Hopkins, a medical facility that no longer does gender reassignment surgery, cites a study from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden which found that 10 years after sex reassignment surgeries the transgendered suffered increasing mental difficulties and were 20 x’s more likely to commit suicide than the nontransgendered population.
