Navy Seal — This "Destroyed My Life"

Jun 12, 2024

Chris Beck is a decorated Navy Seal with 13 deployments. He has both a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart received in his 20-year military career. But during all of that, life felt out of control. Beck said so-called medical professionals pushed him into treatments that “destroyed my life.”

After a single, short meeting with the Department of Veterans Affairs, Beck was advised to begin hormone therapy. But Beck said, “I was never transgender, male to female, or female to male, or anything.” He continued: “For me, transgender did not exist.” But at the advice of doctors, Beck “had unnecessary surgeries.”

Beck had chest augmentation and facial surgery, but then stopped before he did anything more severe. Now nine years later, Beck is back to living his life as a man. He’s engaged to a woman and is speaking out publicly for the first time against the LGBTQ agenda mutilating children.

Beck told the New York Post that “there are doctors doing surgery on 12-year-old children and that’s unacceptable.” They are doing to kids the same thing that ruined Beck’s life.

But if radicals in D.C. get their way, they will block every alternative for these children with mental health stressors like Beck had. They want to force them into experimental drugs and surgeries, even when gender confusion resolves in 85% of minors.

The “Equality Act” will make it illegal for anyone to give hope of a healthy outcome. It is dangerously close to passing. Rush your critical faxes to Congress to stop HR 15. Urge them to block this bill. — Mat

Today is the anniversary of the brutal mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, a known LGBTQ nightclub. Angel Colon and Luis Ruiz miraculously survived the massacre. They have been totally transformed by the love of Jesus, and now they rescue those caught in the LGBTQ web of deceit.

Beck is not the only one who has been harmed by this destructive agenda, and he is not the only one who has found freedom.

“I speak to you today as a victim of one of the biggest medical scandals in the history of the United States of America,” 19-year-old Chloe Cole 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.”

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

This dangerous bill will affect everyone. It will not just infringe on religious freedom — it will trample it. But HR 15 goes far beyond destroying religious freedom. It will harm parents and children.

This “Equality Act” will have a huge, unthinkable impact if it is passed. It will legally mandate everything that the Biden administration is already attempting to push. The "Equality Act" will mean that:

  • No restroom will be safe. Biological men will have access to girls’ and women’s locker rooms, dressing/shower rooms, sport activities, and shelters.

  • Churches will be forced to provide equal access to LGBTQ ceremonies if the facilities are open to natural marriage ceremonies.

  • Churches and religious schools will be forced to hire staff involved in LGBTQ conduct; give men access to women’s restrooms, locker rooms, showers, and sports; allow boys to bunk with girls on camping and overnight trips; and provide insurance to cover hormones, mutilating surgeries, and chemical and surgical abortions.

  • From pre-K, children will be taught that they can choose their gender, will be encouraged to experiment with each other to find their "identities," and will be able to demand opposite, both, and neither sex pronouns (he for a girl, mx for both, zie for neither).

  • Noncompliant churches and schools could lose federal, state, and local tax exemptions and accreditations.

  • Abortion up to birth will be the law of the land.

  • Pregnancy centers will be forced to provide abortion referrals.

If this bill passes, you will not escape its reach into every business, church, school, and more. It will even apply to a small online business in your home!

The truth is that 100% of all so-called “gender reassignment surgeries” fail — every single time. You cannot become a different gender no matter how much you mutilate your biological one. 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.

HR 15 is a real threat. The Democrats need only a few more people to cave to pass this bill.

We are involved in multiple battles in Washington, D.C. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is up for a committee vote and scheduling for the House floor. We can block funding for abortion and the harmful LGTBQ procedures that ruined Beck’s life.

The NDAA bill has more than 1,000 amendments that must be reviewed. When you give to our ministry, you empower our team to show up and fight these battles. We need your help today. Join our Challenge Grant to DOUBLE the impact of your gift. Support Liberty Counsel Action today.
