The Fourteenth Amendment states that, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
At no point in time does it state that states are not allowed to ban child abuse simply because a particular group tends to practice that abuse. For example, states can be raping 7-year-olds even though Mohammed married a 7-year-old girl.
Biden and his hack running the DOJ disagree.
The DOJ has sued Alabama over Senate Bill (S.B.) 184 or the Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act.
The filing is filled with woke gibberish that makes lots of assertions without ever meeting a basic legal standard.
For example, “This lawsuit challenges a state statute that denies necessary medical care to children based solely on who they are.”
The assertion that children being subjected to puberty blockers or other abuses are “who they are” is completely unproven. There is no factual basis for asserting that the children being subjected to these “treatments” are any different than any other children.
The law bans all children from being subjected to such medical experiments, based not on their identity, but on the procedures.
“All people, including transgender youth, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. And the Fourteenth Amendment demands that Alabama not “deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” U.S. Const. amend. XIV.”
All children deserve to be protected. Banning experimental procedures on children that will damage them irreversibly doesn’t diminish dignity and respect. Nor does it deprive anyone of equal protection.
It is a form of protection.
The core of the argument is that medical procedures can be used to help children who suffer from physical defects, but not for “transgender” procedures.
S.B. 184 thus allows a minor to receive certain medical procedures or treatment only if they will be used to affirm the sex that the minor was assigned at birth. 6. The law discriminates against transgender minors by unjustifiably denying them access to certain forms of medically necessary care. 7. While criminalizing certain forms of medically necessary gender affirming care for transgender minors, S.B. 184 permits all other minors to access the same procedures and treatments.
Biden’s DOJ keeps saying “medically necessary”, but it really means “psychologically necessary” which is not the same thing.
Medical procedures are concerned with repairing physical defects. Puberty blockers for psychological reasons based on a destructive current trend is not medically necessary.
That’s the equivalent of arguing that if patients who need to have a leg amputated after suffering a car accident can get it done, then it violates the Fourteenth Amendment not to allow people with body integrity identity disorder (BIID) which is a mental problem in which people want their limbs removed to be able to do it too.
Obviously cutting off people’s body parts due to their delusions is never an answer. And, secondly, this kind of thing should never be inflicted on children.
Biden is fighting to engage in child abuse.
