There is another opportunity to stop the use of tax dollars for so-called sex change surgeries for children. Even though this language was stripped from the House CHIP bill before final passage, another bill — HB 1933 — has been introduced and passed out of the State House Health Committee. This bill would ban the use of tax dollars for not only sex change surgeries, but ban reimbursements for puberty blockers, cross sex hormones and other drugs used in this destructive and impossible attempt to change a child’s sex, as well as pro-transgender counseling!
AFA of PA encourages Christians, through education, to become involved in pro-family issues in their community, state and the nation. This is some of what has been going on in the Commonwealth and the nation.
HB 1388 is the bill to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program or CHIP. In the Senate an amendment was added that would prohibit the use of tax dollars for so-called sex reassignment surgeries for children in the program. The bill passed in the senate by a vote of 37-13 and it is now in the House. LGBT activists are pressuring House leadership to remove the amendment from the final bill.
