DE HB 230 Allows For Medical Experimentation, Sterilization, And Mutilation Of Children

7 Effective Points To Send to Your Representative

Customize your message below with one or two of these points:

  • HB 230 would allow courts to take emergency custody of children who are “unable to transition.” This equates “failure to transition” with abuse and abandonment. Loving parents who don’t want to rush their children into a life-altering medical decision should not be in fear of losing custody of their children. Vote NO on HB 230.

  • HB230 would create for zero accountability for child mutilation by shielding medical professionals from the consequences of experimentation on children who want to “gender transition.”

  • It is beyond irresponsible to allow the medical system to prescribe experimental chemicals that result in mutilation, sterilization, and other serious side effects, to children who are not fully cognitively developed to understand the implications of these treatments. HB 230 would prevent medical professionals from being held accountable for unwisely encouraging children down this path. Please protect children from HB 230.

  • Children who struggle with gender dysphoria already suffer from increased risk of suicide, mental health disorders, substance abuse, and other issues. We should be protecting these children by addressing these underlying issues, rather than pushing them toward sterilization and mutilation when they are at their most vulnerable stage in life. Protect children from HB 230; please vote no.
  • We should help children accept their own bodies, instead of fast-tracking them toward sterilization and mutilation of their bodies to force them to conform to gender stereotypes. There’s a growing movement of young adults sounding the alarm, reporting deep regret and filing lawsuits for the horrific and irreversible harm that has been done to them. Please protect children from this horror; vote no on HB 230.

  • Puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones have many unintended negative side effects, permanent sterilization being among them. The American Psychological Association has recommended that prepubertal children not undergo such medical treatment. This is medical castration. It is beyond irresponsible to allow children, who are not yet fully developed cognitively, to make such a permanent decision for themselves. Please say NO to medically castrating our children and vote no on HB 230.

  • Transgender treatments have extreme negative effects that are long-term, including loss of the ability to use reproductive organs as they were intended, permanent sterilization, brittle bones, heart issues, and depression & suicidal thoughts. Even though national medical associations like the Mayo Clinic recommend that individuals “address any psychological, medical or social problems that could interfere with the treatment,” HB 230 provides ZERO legal recourse for individuals who were not given a thorough psychological or physical examination before being prescribed puberty blockers, hormones, or surgery, and suffer tremendously as a result. HB 230 is irresponsible; please protect children from HB 230.

Attempting to transition the gender of children DOES NOT PREVENT SUICIDE! This is what you will hear from the sponsors. click the link to learn why taking a child toward transitioning actually increases the risk of suicide. We urge you to listen to those who are now in their twenties and pleading with parents and anyone who will listen to stop doing this to children. HEAR THEIR VOICES. This is the one video you MUST see

This is how children are being sexualized and transitioned – Please be informed & take action

1) Purposefully planting the seeds of confusion in public/government schools as early as kindergarten and throughout the curricula, school libraries, supported and aggressively promoted by educators, social media algorithms, peers, media, retail, and entertainment that all saturate the minds of our children.

By the time I was thirteen, I was isolating myself, self-harming, and had developed an eating disorder. ... During this time, ... I found a website called Tumblr. ... On Tumblr, ... any claim to being "oppressed" would accumulate social credibility, while any unfortunate "privileged" status was justification for verbal abuse. ... I was a "[straight] white girl" in an environment where that was one of the worst things to be. Since Tumblr users are mostly biological females, the "[straight] white girl" holds the position of most privileged and therefore most inherently bad group. ... The beauty of gender ideology is ... you can absolutely change your gender, and it's as easy as putting a "she/they" in your [Tumblr] profile. ... With the new pronouns often come a wave of positive affirmation ... This is the incentive I felt to comb through my thoughts and memories for things that might be further evidence that deep down, I wasn't really a girl."

2) No Recourse, No help for Parents.  In Delaware. if a child is experiencing gender dysphoria, the only advice a licensed counselor is legally allowed to give is for helping the child transition. (Senate Bill 65, 2017)

3) Bypassing Parents. The school (agents of the government) takes over! Public school policy encourages teachers not to inform parents if their child identifies as the opposite sex. The school will use the child’s preferred name and pronouns.

4) Parents framed as threats to child safety. If parents are reported to the state for not using the preferred pronouns or doing anything that is perceived as unaccepting of this sexual ideology that has taken root in their child’s mind, then according to HB230 they risk the state taking emergency jurisdiction of their child.

5) The Path to medical experimentation, Puberty Blockers. Experimental drugs are given to children to halt the onset of puberty, which stunts the growth of genitalia. There are NO long term studies on these drugs and their effect on children who use them to transition. 

6) Cross-sex hormones. Children are given the hormones of the opposite sex which make them into life long pharmaceutical users. These hormones can permanently harm an individual’s reproductive system, bone density, cause cancer, pulmonary issues, and numerous complications – thus making these individuals permanent pharmaceutical users. (Do you see the financial incentive for pharmaceutical companies?) HELP NOT HARM! 

"No one can tell you for sure if taking testosterone will affect your ability to get pregnant. You could get pregnant or you may never be able to get pregnant again in the future, even if you stop the testosterone.

Possible side effects and outcomes of transitioning as “treatment” include:

  • Sterilization
  • Permanent changes to voice
  • Increased risk of cardiovascular problems and osteoporosis
  • Loss of ability to experience pleasurable sensation during intercourse
  • Scarring and irreversible changes from surgeries
  • Continued mental health issues

7) Amputation of healthy body parts: Surgery. Some go as far as to remove perfectly healthy reproductive and sex organs; the after-effects of this are brutal and still being discovered. Search “detransitioners” to see stories of regret and the irreversible damage done to these children and adults.

"During my own transition, I had seven surgeries. I also had a massive pulmonary embolism, a helicopter life-flight ride, an emergency ambulance ride, a stress-induced heart attack, sepsis, a 17-month recurring infection due to using the wrong skin during a (failed) phalloplasty, 16 rounds of antibiotics, three weeks of daily IV antibiotics, the loss of all my hair, (only partially successful) arm reconstructive surgery, permanent lung and heart damage, a cut bladder, insomnia-induced hallucinations—oh and frequent loss of consciousness due to pain from the hair on the inside of my urethra. All this led to a form of PTSD that made me a prisoner in my apartment for a year. Between me and my insurance company, medical expenses exceeded $900,000."
