“SB 107 may be the most brazen assault on fundamental parental rights in the history of this state,” McReynolds warned. “This is not a game, a spoof, or a joke. Families who thought they had escaped California will not be safe if this bill is enacted. It is time for citizens to call their legislators en masse to let them know they will be swept out of office this November if this bill passes.” (Read McReynolds letter of opposition here.)
Other California attorneys have expressed similar concerns. “SB 107 is a direct assault on parental rights and state rights which will cause great damage to children and families if enacted,” said attorney Dean Broyles, president of the National Center for Law and Policy. “It seeks to make California a sanctuary state for parents or guardians desiring to unilaterally facilitate the child abuse of minors struggling with gender dysphoria. It decimates the legal jurisdiction of other states, carving out an exception to well-established and universal legal prohibitions on kidnapping, by allowing children to be unlawfully brought to California, as long as the purpose is to seek “gender-affirming care.”
“Gender affirming care, in reality, is just a euphemism for medical child abuse—specifically giving children hormones that will sterilize them for life and lopping off perfectly functioning God-given body parts,” Broyles continued. “The social science is clear that most children are not prepared to make this important life-aging decision at a young age and that most will come to deeply regret it later. Adults who aid and abet this travesty should not have a get-out-of-jail-free card here in California. State-sanctioned child abuse is still child abuse. This extreme legislation will further cement California’s dark legacy as a pariah state.”
