This reeks of fascism.
A new law has been passed which gives the government rights to take away children from their homes.
On what grounds you ask?
If the families do not accept their kid’s chosen ‘gender identity’ or ‘gender expression’.
The Canadian province of Ontario passed the bill known as The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, Bill 89, by a vote of 63 to 23, The Christian Times reported.
According to Heat Street: The law, which replaces old laws governing child protection, foster care and adoption services, instructs all child services and judges, to take into consideration a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”
Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau is responsible for this bill. He said, “I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently.”
“If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
Heat Street continues to state, the old law used to allow parents to “direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” The new bill, however, amends such rights of the parents.
It now emphasizes a child’s “identity and allows parents only to “direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”
Critic of the bill Jack Fonseca — a political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition — had this to say about the new law.
“With the passage of Bill 89, we’ve entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history. Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption.”
What do you think about this bill?
Should the government have this much say in a family’s personal life?
