The Veto Override session is officially confirmed.
Now it’s time to clarify what’s at stake… will ‘Groomers’ have access to Louisiana children? At least that’s how the conversation unfolded on May 2nd in House Health & Welfare committee, in this exchange between Rep. Kenny Cox & teen detransitioner, Prisha Mosely.
Rep. Kenny Cox: “So were you Groomed by somebody?”
Prisha Mosely: “Absolutely. I wasn't using that word…because I thought it was too polarizing. But what happened to me fits the very definition of ‘grooming’. I was online in anorexia communities and transgender adults came in and told us that the reason we couldn't eat was because we were born in the wrong body.”
Rep. Kenny Cox: “And how deep did that go into your Spirit and Soul?”
Prisha Mosely: “I mean, I believed the adults around me…”
“The girl I was is gone and has been replaced by a medical experiment” - Prisha Mosely
WOW…that is the essence of Tuesday’s vote.
Will minor children, under duress, be medically and chemically subjected to people who profit from their dilemma? Will those who possess nefarious motives -- Rep. Cox called those “groomers” – be given continued access to Louisiana children?
In her testimony, Prisha Mosely describes in detail what was done to her, her body and the health consequences she must bear for the rest of her life. This clip includes testimony from Senator Angela Hill of Mississippi and compassionate comments by, Louisiana Reps. Kenny Cox and Laurie Schlegel. It is arguably the most informative 5 minutes you could invest today in preparation for next week.
Children who experience emotional discomfort with their body, biological sex, or simply wrestle with very real adolescent fear and emotion, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. They are only helped by competent mental health care, not experimental and permanent sterilizing puberty blockers or mutilating surgical procedures.
So the question remains: this Tuesday, July 18th, will Louisiana lawmakers vote for continued ‘groomer access’ to Louisiana children? Will it be “Access Granted” or “Access Denied”?
