Iowa governor signs legislation to protect children from dangerous procedures
The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Matt Sharp, director of the ADF Center for Legislative Advocacy, regarding Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds’ signing Wednesday of SF 538, a bill that protects children from dangerous, life-altering medical procedures:
“Denying the truth that we are either male or female hurts real people, especially vulnerable children. By enacting this legislation, Iowa has taken critical steps to protect children from radical activists that peddle gender ideology and pressure children into life-altering, experimental procedures and drugs. Young people deserve to live in a society that doesn’t subject them to risky experiments to which they cannot effectively consent. That’s why other countries—like Sweden, England, and Finland—are adopting policies that better protect children from the bad science that has already devastated countless lives. We commend Gov. Reynolds and the Iowa Legislature for standing for truth by enacting these vital protections for our children.”
