Virginia Lawmaker: "Schools Are Actively Pushing Kids Toward Gender Transition"
As Virginia Democrats killed a bill Thursday that would ban schools from hiding a child's "gender transition" from parents, Sage's Law sponsor Del. Dave LaRock (R) spoke to Breitbart News about the "ongoing need" to protect children in schools.
"Schools are actively pushing kids toward gender transition which amount to treatment decisions without proper counseling and mental health evaluations, and without parents being informed and involved," the Republican, who represents parts of Loudoun, Frederick, and Clarke counties in northwest Virginia, said.
"Sage's tragic experience, as shared by her mother's testimony, presented a crystal clear example of what is going wrong in Virginia schools and around the nation," he continued. "Sage's Law was an opportunity to protect children by engaging parents, clarifying that it is not a crime for a parent to misgender, and that treatment and involving a school should always involve parents and mental health professionals."
