Mississippi Bans Sex-Change Procedures For Minors; Matt Walsh Delivers Remarks With Governor | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Gov. Tate Reeves (R-MS) signed a bill Tuesday outlawing sex-change procedures for minors and punishing doctors who push cross-sex drugs and procedures on those under 18.

    House Bill 1125, known as the "Regulate Experimental Adolescent Procedures (REAP) Act," overwhelmingly passed Mississippi's Republican-led Senate 33-15 last week after passing the state House 78-30 in January. Now, after Reeves' signature, Mississippi state law bars health care providers from performing gender reassignment surgeries, prescribing and administrating puberty-blocking drugs, and giving cross-sex hormones to trans-identifying children.

    "There is a dangerous movement spreading across America today being pushed onto our children through radical activists, social media, and online influencers," Reeves said at the bill's signing, adding that radical gender ideology "threatens our children's innocence and threatens their health."

    Under the new Mississippi law, doctors and healthcare professionals who "knowingly provide gender transition procedures to any person under 18 years of age" will have their medical license revoked by the state. The law also prohibits public funds from being used for gender transitions on minors.

    Daily Wire host Matt Walsh, who has been on a crusade in his home state of Tennessee to protect children from the dangers of transgender treatments, joined Reeves in Jackson, Mississippi, for the bill's signing.

    "These kids are put on so-called puberty blockers to chemically castrate them, and before the age of 18, many will undergo surgery," Walsh said. "They cannot consent to it and they cannot understand the long-term effects of it."

    "They need love and clarity, not hormone supplements and scalpels," he added. "Our kids cannot protect themselves. We need to do it. That's our job as adults."

    Republican state Sen. Joey Fillingane clarified that Mississippi is only banning transgender surgeries for those who are not legal adults.

    "I just want everyone to be very crystal clear: Once you're 18 if this bill becomes law ... this bill would recognize you can have any procedure on your body you want to," Fillingane said during Senate floor debate. "So what we're really talking about here are these procedures for persons 17 years of age and under."

    Mississippi's move to prevent minors from making irreversible changes to their bodies comes after Tennessee's state legislature sent a bill to Republican Gov. Bill Lee's desk last week that would ban such procedures as mastectomies on girls who come to believe they are boys and make it illegal to give children cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers. The bill is expected to be approved by Lee, who has previously signaled that he supports the measure.

    "We should not allow permanent, life-altering decisions that hurt children. With the partnership of the General Assembly, this practice should end in Tennessee," Lee said in the fall after an investigation by Walsh revealed that the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) had performed double mastectomies on minors.

    Other Republican-led states such as Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, South Dakota, and Utah have also restricted or banned sex-change procedures for minors. The bill Alabama passed last year made it a felony to prescribe puberty blockers and hormone treatment to trans-identifying minors, but the law was temporarily blocked by a federal judge.

    Iowa, Missouri, and Nebraska are also considering bills that would prohibit doctors from performing similar procedures on minors.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.
