Gripping Testimony About Dangerous Bill...

Feb 21, 2024

Arizona is considering a bill that if insurance companies pay for minors to mutilate their bodies, then they also must cover the procedures to reverse this horrid mutilation to the extent it is even possible. The bill also will include anonymous reporting and a fast track for so-called “detransitioners” to reclaim their former legal identity.

One of the supporters of this bill is 19-year-old “detransitioner” Chloe Cole. Poor Chloe has received a flood of vile and disgusting attacks for speaking the truth regarding her own personal experience. Chloe has been a powerful voice, even testifying before a U.S. House Committee with tears in her eyes as she gave a chilling warning … a final warning to members of Congress about the “transgender” craze.

“I speak to you today as a victim of one of the biggest medical scandals in the history of the United States of America,” Chloe told Congress. “I speak to you in the hope that you will have the courage to bring the scandal to an end, and ensure that other vulnerable teenagers, children, and young adults don’t go through what I went through.”

However, the battle is much bigger than what is happening in Arizona. Democrats in the U.S. House have teed up the Equality Act (HR 15). This will destroy everything Chloe is fighting. And these radicals just got one more vote, now 213, in support of this bad bill. If they get just five more votes, it will prevent states from protecting children against child mutilation.

Rush your critical faxes to Congress to stop Republicans from caving to HR 15 and urge them to block this bill. — Mat

At age 12, Chloe told her parents she identified as a “boy.” They immediately sought expert advice. An expert asked her parents, “Would you rather have a dead daughter or a living transgender son?”

“The choice was enough for my parents to let their guard down, and in retrospect, I can't blame them. This is the moment that we all became victims of so-called gender-affirming care,” Chloe shared under oath.

“I was fast-tracked onto puberty blockers and then testosterone. The resulting menopausal-like hot flashes made focusing on school impossible. I still get joint pains and weird pops in my back … A month later, when I was 13, I had my first testosterone injection. It has caused permanent changes in my body. My voice will forever be deeper, my jawline sharper, my nose longer, my bone structure permanently masculinized, my Adam's apple more prominent, my fertility unknown.”

Now insurance companies are covering these mutilations, drugs, and other procedures, but the moment these kids want to reclaim as much of their health as they can restore, the insurance companies refuse coverage, leaving them with mutilated and damaged bodies.

For Chloe, the drugs and mutilating surgeries was just the beginning of her pain. Her story should be enough to stop this madness from happening to other impressionable children … except for the fact that LGBTQ radicals are pressuring Congress to pass the Equality Act.

If the Democrats can get just five more votes, they can bypass the House Speaker and pass this bill.

Chloe told Congress: “I look in the mirror sometimes, and I feel like a monster. I had a double mastectomy at 15. They tested my amputated breasts for cancer. That was cancer-free, of course. I was perfectly healthy. There is nothing wrong with my still-developing body or my breasts other than that, as an insecure teenage girl, I felt awkward about it.

“After my breasts were taken away from me, the tissue was incinerated. Before I was able to legally drive, I had a huge part of my future womanhood taken from me. I will never be able to breastfeed. I struggle to look at myself in the mirror at times. I still struggle to this day with sexual dysfunction. And I have massive scars across my chest and the skin grafts that they used, that they took of my nipples, are weeping fluid today,” she told the members of Congress.

The damage done to Chloe’s body is horrific. Yet HR 15 would normalize this abuse. In fact, it would outlaw anyone speaking out with the truth against it. Doctors, nurses, counselors, teachers, police and first responders, and even clergy will be threatened with forced compliance if the Equality Act passes.

The “Equality Act” will force churches and religious schools — pre-K through college — to remain silent about the real harm that LGBTQ behaviors cause. This would cause even more people like Chloe to be harmed.

Chloe shared, “At 16, after my surgery, I did become suicidal. I'm doing better now, but my parents almost got the dead daughter promised to them by my doctors. My doctor had almost created the very nightmare they said they were trying to avoid."

“So what message do I want to bring to American teenagers and their families?”

“I didn't need to be lied to. I needed compassion. I needed to be loved. I needed to be given therapy that helped me work through my issues, not affirm my delusion that by transforming into a boy, it would solve all my problems. We need to stop telling 12-year-olds that they were born wrong,” she boldly warned Congress.

The truth is that 100% of all “gender reassignment surgeries” fail — every single time. You cannot become a different gender. There are about 6,500 known differences on a cellular level between boys and girls, and no number of surgeries will change this biological fact.

This House bill is a real threat.
