Help Kids in So. Dak.

Jan 21, 2020

Being a teenager is confusing and emotional. Kids change their minds a couple (dozen) times, right?

There is a great bill in the South Dakota legislature that would give kids the ability to change their minds without destroying the rest of their life. HB 1057 bans medical mutilation, chemical castration, and the sterilization of children who are facing confusion about their gender.

But right now, this bill (HB 1057) is facing political attacks from radicals who want adults to stand by and let young kids destroy their bodies and sacrifice their future on the altar of political correctness.

I ask you to stand in the gap for these young children. And I'll give you a concrete way to make an impact down below. But first let me give you some talking points:

  • It is illegal for kids to smoke even one cigarette. However, the impact of smoking naturally begins to reverse just 20 minutes after finishing a cigarette!
  • It's illegal for kids to have one beer, but the liver can completely heal itself from mild damage in just a few days.
  • Up to "98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually accept their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty," according to the American College of Pediatrics.

But right now, in South Dakota, it's legal for kids to cut off appendages and organs causing irreversible damage, permanent sterilization and other life-long effects because of a whim that will naturally pass for all but 2 to 12 percent of these children.

I urge you to contact your local legislators, and especially the people listed below, and urge them to pass HB 1057 right away to protect our children today.

In addition, here is a link to Gov. Kristi Noem's online contact form.

And finally, the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry is opposing this bill. Please politely encourage them to start supporting the safety of our children by emailing David Owen at and

There is a stark contrast of worldviews. Radicals want to physically mutilate children to push their agenda forward, but at the same time they want to make it illegal for conservative professionals to have a conversation about human relationships with that same child. That's ridiculous.

I hope I can count on you to get involved today. Liberty Counsel Action is proud to stand with parents and legislators who want to stop medical personnel from irreversibly harming children before they turn 18 years old.
