CPS Kidnapped These Children...

Feb 26, 2024

Child Protective Services employees in two states have removed children from their Christian parents, putting the children on cross-sex hormones and “gender affirmation” programs.

If passed, HR 15, the deliberately misnamed “Equality Act,” will make horrific stories like these common practices, and there won’t be a thing parents can do to protect their children from the “transification” of America.

With the recent election in New York to replace George Santos, Democrats picked up another vote for HR 15. They now have 213 votes and only need five more. This bill is dangerously close to passing. Read on. — Mat

If you thought living in a conservative state with a Republican governor can save you from the LGBTQ’s designs on your children, you would be wrong.

In April 2023, the good people of Montana passed a law banning gender affirmation drugs and surgeries for minor children. But the ACLU sued, prompting a liberal judge to prevent the law from going into effect.

In August 2023, Montana’s Child and Family Services agency used the opportunity to kidnap Todd and Krista Kolstad’s daughter, whisking the 14-year-old girl across state lines to a “gender affirming” group home where the child was put on cross-sex hormones against her parent’s will.

Krista says she and her husband were “very clear” with Montana’s CFS that calling their daughter by a boy’s name and pronouns “goes against our values, morals, and our religious beliefs.”

Not only were Tood and Krista prevented from guiding their daughter’s care, but they were also not even allowed to visit or speak to their daughter.

Mary and Jeremy Cox of Indiana are going through a similar nightmare. Indiana Department of Child Services removed their teenage son from their home alleging that the parents’ refusal to refer to their son using pronouns and a name inconsistent with his biological sex was “abuse.”

Upon further investigation, the State of Indiana finally admitted that the allegations of “abuse” against Mary and Jeremy were “unsubstantiated.” However, the state argued the parents’ refusal to accept the child’s “gender identity” was enough to allow the state to revoke the parent’s custody of their own child. The state placed Mary and Jeremy’s son in a “gender affirming” foster home.

"This is what every parent is afraid of," Mary and Jeremy said in a press release. "We love our son and wanted to care for him, but the state of Indiana robbed us of that opportunity by taking him from our home and banning us from speaking to him about gender."

Both Montana and Indiana have Republican governors and Republican majority legislatures. But in both cases, pro-LGBTQ state Child Protective Services and LGBTQ-favoring judges allowed these mentally ill children to be yanked from their parents care to “affirm” the children’s delusions.

While these cases might seem like outliers, we WILL see more instances of CPS agencies kidnapping children from Christian homes if HR 15 passes.

HR 15, the deliberately misnamed “Equality Act,” is a grave threat to parental rights. Pushed by progressive Democrats and a relentless LGBTQ lobby, the legislation imposes radical gender ideology — including childhood “gender affirmation” — upon every American, opening the door to allow government agencies to remove gender-confused children from parents who refuse to bow to the “transgender” agenda.

If HR 15 passes, neither your governor nor your legislature nor YOU will be able to protect and guide your own children. Pastors and churches will be forbidden from speaking against transgender ideology or face discrimination lawsuits akin to racial discrimination. Parents will be required to “affirm” their children’s gender delusions or lose custody.

And don’t bet on the state leaders to protect you — unless we make some noise NOW.

Eight Republicans joined Democrats in voting for this same piece of legislation back in 2019. Thankfully, that measure narrowly failed. However, the latest version of the Equality Act (HR 15) has 213 votes. Democrats only need FIVE Republicans to join them to dissolve parental rights in favor of the LGBTQ agenda.

The rabid LGBTQ lobby is working overtime to rob children of their innocence. Liberty Counsel is fighting back in Washington as well as in courtrooms across the nation. Defend parental rights and protect these children NOW with your donation to Liberty Counsel’s legal fund.
