    Stand & fight: Anchorage Assembly attempting to negate parental rights

    AlaskaWatchman.com

    What is about to unfold at the Anchorage Assembly is one of the most brazen assaults on parental rights in the history of Alaska.

    The three openly gay members of the Assembly have introduced an ordinance that would ban parents from being able to secure any type of counseling for children that tries to address unwanted same-sex desires or gender confusion.

    Assembly members Christopher Constant, Felix Rivera and Austin Quinn-Davidson do not believe that parents should have the right to help their child navigate one of the most central and delicate areas of life – their sexuality.

    There are times when we are duty bound to stand and fight for our children.

    Actually, let me clarify. The ordinance would not prohibit parents from seeking “professional help” for a gender questioning child so long as that help involves encouraging them to explore alternative genders and various sexual orientations.

    The only ban is against counseling that radical gay rights activists dislike.

    If a boy suffers from gender confusion and has lived as a girl for a while, but now wants help to live according to his actual biology as a male, he would have no recourse under the proposed law.

    Or if a young child begins dressing or presenting in a way that conflicts with their biological sex, parents would have no ability to seek professional help to correct the situation.

    On the other hand, a boy who begins to wonder if he is actually a girl, he could access all the services needed to make the so-called transition to the opposite sex.

    This disregard of a sacred parental right should be met with relentless and overwhelming opposition.

    Regardless of where you stand on the LGBT front, this ordinance is a closed-minded overreach and unprecedented political power grab. The government is literally banning parental rights with regards to one of the most fundamental moral issues.

    The ordinance was introduced at the June 23 Assembly meeting and will be taken up for public debate on July 28.

    This disregard of a sacred parental right should be met with relentless and overwhelming opposition – beginning now and continuing through July 28.

    Between now and then, we will document the harmful effects that people suffer from foolish efforts to steer them towards sexual experimentation.

    There are times when we are duty bound to stand and fight for our children and our rights as parents. This is one of those seminal battles.
