New laws introduced by Rep. Margaret Taylor Greene (R-Ga. ) aims to protect minors throughout the nation from gender reassignment surgeries.
Discussing the Protect Children’s Innocence Act with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Thursday, Rep. Greene said she’s disgusted by the Biden administration’s efforts to market so-called “ gender-affirming care” medical procedures for children that are identifying as “ trans. ”
“ I find this absolutely appalling, Tucker, ” Greene said. “ When it comes to gender-affirming care, which is really child abuse, this is really an assault and it’s child abuse. And this practice should not happen, it’s so nauseating and appalling… gender-affirming treatment is… genital mutilation. ”
Continuing, Greene affirmed her bill would certainly make it a felony to perform several medical procedures on people beneath the age of 18 punishable by a fine of up to $250, 1000 and/or up to 25 years behind bars.
“ This needs to be illegal plus I’m introducing a bill known as Protect Children’s Innocence Act… It would create a law that would cause it to be a class C felony for any person involved in so-called gender-affirming care… something involving any youth underneath the age of 18. ”
Tucker agreed physicians who perform unnecessary medical procedures on children should “ go to jail, ” and proceeded to ask whether Republicans were onboard with all the legislation.
“ You know I should have every single Republican co-sponsor [the bill], ” Greene responded. “ But unfortunately I don’t yet, I only have five co-sponsors. I’m talking to all of my colleagues and recommending them, because Tucker without a doubt something, this is a referendum around the Republican Party. ”
“ Because this practice has to end, ” she added. “ It’s the kind of thing nightmares are made of. That are monsters under kids that that are doing these horrific things to them. ”
The particular Protect Children’s Innocence Act has been introduced.

According to screenshots released by Rep. Greene, the particular legislation would ban many manners of gender-oriented healthcare surgeries on children, including:
castration, orchiectomy, scrotoplasty, vasectomy, hysterectomy, oophorectomy, ovariectomy, metoidioplasty, penectomy, phalloplasty, vaginoplasty, vaginectomy, vulvoplasty, reduction thyrochondroplasty, chondrolaryngoplasty, and mastectomy.
“ Whomever, in any circumstance… knowingly performs any gender affirming treatment on a minor is guilty of a class C criminal offence, ” the legislation scans.
Speaking to the particular Article Millennial about the legislation, Rep. Greene reiterated, “ This is kid abuse, and it should be totally illegal. And anyone that works those therapies or all those surgeries, they should be in jail. ”
“ A Republican majority is completely worthless if we are not standing up and stopping this, ” Greene told the Post Millennial . “ The Republican Celebration needs to be the party that protects children, stops puberty blockers, hormone therapy, vaginal mutilation surgery of anybody under 18— before she or he is old enough to actually make a decision. ”
The particular Post Millennial reports Greene’s proposed legislation comes on the heels of a similar GOP-backed bill presented in June dubbed the Protecting Minors from Medical Malpractice Act , which usually sought to allow minors in order to sue doctors over gender surgeries.
In contrast, Joe Biden has urged parents to seek gender reassignment surgeries for “ trans” kids, urging them in March on “ Transgender Day of Visibility” in order to “ affirm your child’s identity . ”
