Illinois Dem proposes bill to redefine parental abuse as refusal to go along with child sex changes

Feb 12, 2024 | Political News

Illinois Democrats have proposed an amendment to a parental abuse bill that would classify refusing to allow a child to undergo sex change surgeries as abuse.

It would make it a crime punishable by prison for a parent who prohibits their child from surgically change sexes.

House Bill 4876, introduced by Democrat Rep. Anne Stava-Murray, acts as an amendment to the state's Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act. The bill would classify parents who deny medical care such as primary care services, abortion services, or gender-affirming services as committing child abuse.
