Pediatricians Call Youth Transgenderism 'Child Abuse'

The American College of Pediatricians reaffirmed the biological differences between men and women and condemned the idea of teaching kids early on that gender identity is fluid as "child abuse." In a preliminary statement released on Monday, the group of over 400 pediatricians nationwide listed eight points explaining their position scientifically.

Perhaps the most compelling is the last point, where the organization unequivocally condemned miseducating young people (emphasis theirs):

Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present to "gender clinics" where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs. This, in turn, virtually ensures that they will "choose" a lifetime of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic cross-sex hormones, and likely consider unnecessary surgical mutilation of their healthy body parts as young adults.

Activist: Teachers abuse 100 times more than priests, but we trust them with sex ed?

Are teachers more trustworthy sex educators than parents?

Though governments argue that teaching sex ed in schools is about student safety, one leading anti-sex-ed activist recently warned parents that it can actually put kids' safety at risk. Many parents strongly object to government schools stepping in on such an intimate and personal matter. But is there also good reason for parents to distrust teachers' motives in the classroom?

Toronto school officials say sex-ed partly to blame for dropping enrollment

Two Ontario public school boards have reported markedly lower elementary school enrollments this fall than expected and admit that opposition to the Liberal government's controversial sex ed is likely behind the drop.

A rash of new private schools opening in the Greater Toronto Area, as reported in the Globe, is also backlash against the sex ed curriculum's rollout in the province's publicly funded schools this September.

All this is proof that the strategy pushed by the Canadian Families Alliance - a grassroots parents' rights coalition formed in June - is working, says Campaign Life Coalition's Jack Fonseca. Simply put, that strategy encourages people pull their kids out of the public system and take their funding with them.

Ontario gvmt to parents: Kids will see porn in our schools, so be glad for sex ed

Ontario Education Minister Liz Sandals says the sex-ed curriculum is the solution to children as young as age six accessing explicit pornography while at school - a response that has pro-family advocates fuming and denouncing the minister as self-serving and deceitful.

The latest of an increasing number of reports of Ontario's children being exposed to sexual images on school computers or on their own devices while at school, an Ottawa couple told the media their six-year-old son saw a video of explicit lesbian sex on a school computer.

Sandals responded by telling reporters that the sex ed curriculum helps children deal with such images, according to National Post's Ashley Csanady.

Don't believe the Wynne sex-ed program is as bad as many warn? These videos are mandatory viewing.

It has been frustrating for parental rights leaders, who have been warning about the Ontario Government's immoral, abusive sex-ed program, to see so much public acceptance of the false charges of government, religious and other leaders that the critics are making a big deal over nothing.

The challenge has been to make people understand how genuinely dangerous and evil this program is, for both Catholic and public school students. Our opponents slyly say, "Who are they going to believe, some noisy, protesting parents, or government education experts and the bishops of Ontario?"

Unfortunately, institutional status often means far too much to many people, no matter how accurate the facts that are presented to them. The children then become tragic victims of this misplaced trust.

Critics decry Wynne Liberals' 'shameful' misuse of millions in tax dollars to plug sex ed

That Minister of Education Liz Sandals actively discouraged MPPs holding constituency meetings on the sex-ed curriculum and the Ontario government spent $6.5 million on two ad campaigns to promote the controversial program in the face of widespread parental protests are "shameful" examples of "the Liberal culture of entitlement," says Tory MPP Monte McNaughton.

"Clearly, this is a government that is hell-bent on usurping parental rights over the moral education of their own children, and there's no low it won't stoop to," pointed out Jack Fonseca of Campaign Life Coalition.

According to documents LifeSiteNews obtained through a Freedom of Information request, Premier Kathleen Wynne's Liberal government spent $4 million on a television and online ad campaign that ran concurrent with the sex-ed curriculum September 2015 rollout in all the province's publicly funded schools.

Ontario Conservative House leader says Cardinal Collins asked him to not oppose radical Wynne sex ed

Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto says the claim by a major figure in the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party that he told them to "back off" the sex-ed fight is "grossly inaccurate."

PC House Leader and Catholic MPP Jim Wilson stated last week that the cardinal personally invited him to breakfast prior to the release of the Liberal's controversial sex-ed curriculum last February.

Wilson made the comments last Wednesday while speaking with university students who had made a field trip to Queen's Park to learn about the role of faith in politics. When one student asked the politician how his faith had influenced him, Wilson, who at that time was interim party leader after the resignation of Tim Hudak, brought up the sex ed issue and credited Cardinal Collins for relieving his conscience in deciding what course to take.

Ontario Liberals paid $4 million for TV ads pushing graphic sex-ed curriculum

The Ontario Liberal government spent $4 million in taxpayers dollars on an online and television advertising campaign in September 2015 to sell its controversial sex-ed curriculum, LifeSiteNews has learned through documents obtained in a Freedom of Information request.

Email correspondence from Education Minister Liz Sandals also reveals she opposed MPPs holding constituency community meetings on contentious the sex-ed curriculum, which was rolled out in Ontario's publicly funded schools September 2015, and that she was especially concerned the LGBTQ community was satisfied with the sex-ed television ads.

The sex-ed curriculum introduces homosexuality in Grade 3, masturbation in Grade 6, oral and anal sex in Grade 7, and teaches that there are six genders rather than two biological sexes, according to a detailed analysis of the Campaign Life Coalition.

The 'sex-ideological tyranny' of sex-change surgery and its political sycophants

A recent move by Ontario's Liberal government to expand referrals for sex-reassignment surgeries (SRS) opened yet another front in the decades-long political and ideological war over the perception and treatment of gender dysphoria.

This mental disorder is characterized by a repudiation or aversion to one's sex, and whether surgically altering genitalia is legitimate treatment, or a mutilation vainly done to satisfy a mental delusion, is the most consequential question for transgendered persons themselves, and one of the more controversial issues surrounding "transgender rights."

These have "emerged as the next big thing" in the United States in the aftermath of the Supreme Court's decision that homosexual "marriage" is constitutionally protected, says Peter Sprigg, policy analyst for the Washington-based Family Research Council (FRC), and co-author of the June 2015 report "Understanding and Responding to the Transgender Movement."

Ont. man planned threesome camping trip with nine-year-old girl

Parents looking for a reason to monitor their child's online activities should know about Daniel Labutte.

On Monday, Labutte, 27, originally from Mississauga, pleaded guilty to three sex-related charges -- possession of child porn, transmitting sexually explicit materials to a minor and communicating with a minor for a sexual purpose.

At the centre of the case is a nine-year-old London girl who posted a profile on the dating site Plenty of Fish and ended up catching the attention of Labutte and his girlfriend. They began talking to the girl online, had sex in front of a web camera for the girl to watch and started a plan to go camping with her so they could have sex together.

Three teachers lose jobs over sex-ed boycott

Ontario's sex-education controversy appears to have claimed the jobs of three teachers in a Toronto neighbourhood where upset parents keeping their kids out of school have reduced the need for as many classes as planned.

At Thorncliffe Park Public School, an early September boycott of nearly 800 students over the revised curriculum dwindled as parents gradually brought their kids back to school, but when the last 100 still failed to show up by mid-October, the school was forced to dissolve two Grade 1 classes and declare two long-term occasional teachers as "surplus."

"It's disappointing for sure, but we know some of these students are attending Muslim schools and others are being home-schooled so it appears they’re learning," said Thorncliffe Park Principal Jeff Crane. With an enrolment of about 1,260 students from kindergarten to Grade 5, Thorncliffe is still the largest elementary school in Canada, even though the number of Grade 1 classes has dropped to 13 from 15.

Islamic song in public school raises eyebrows

The singing of an Islamic song in an Ottawa high school is now raising a number of eyebrows.

It has become clear that what was originally described as a peaceful welcoming song may not in fact be appropriate for Canadian public school students.

Before Christmas, various media outlets reported that students at De La Salle high school in downtown Ottawa performed a rendition of the song "Tala' al-Badru 'Alayna" at a Dec. 3 recital.

Liberals have created chaos in education

I can hear the phone call in my wildest imagination.

"Hello, boss, feeling a bit under the weather today. Don't think I can make it into work today,"

There's a pause.

"Sure, Chris. No problem. Take 11 days on full pay. When that's finished, you can take another 120 days at 90%. Then just keep coming back for more."

As I said, in my wildest dreams.

Ontario sex-ed opponents broaden outreach to ethnic parents

A key to the historic parental uprising against radical sex-ed that has taken place in Ontario since late 2014 has been the emergence of organized groups of cultural, ethnic and religious minority families. Determined, well-informed, and loud, these groups have set off a rebellion against the Kathleen Wynne government's controversial sex program for elementary schools that has captured international attention.

A walk through one of the many protests that have taken place at Queen's Park, or MPP constituency offices would reveal that many of the parent protestors are immigrants, and for many, English is even a second language. Campaign Life Coalition (CLC), a member group of the Canadian Families Alliance which formed to repeal the sex curriculum, has published two new translations - in Polish and Russian - of its devastatingly insightful critique of the Liberal sex education program.

October 1 sex-ed strike set to defy Liberal govt's 'organized bullying'

The grassroots coalition mobilizing for a province-wide student strike on October 1 says that parental opposition to the Liberals' controversial sex-ed curriculum is growing, despite the government's "organized bullying" in rolling out the curriculum this September.

Canadian Families Alliance (CFA) is behind the October 1 action that will cap off the 30-day September strike in Thorncliffe Park, one-day strike in Peterborough, two-day strike in Mississauga, and planned one-day strikes today in Ajax and Durham.
