On Monday, a Dallas jury ruled 11-1 against
father Jeffrey Younger in his fight against his ex-wife, Dr. Anna
Georgulas, who wants to subject young James to puberty blockers and
cross-sex hormones as well as legally force his father to treat him as a

his son’s will.
The case has sparked intense national outrage even as the mainstream press largely ignores it, with experts warning
that not only is affirming a child’s gender confusion psychologically
unhealthy in the long run, but exposure to sex-change hormones carries
serious physical risks including infertility, impairment of adult sex
function, and reduced life expectancy.
As of the time of this writing, a Change.org petition
calling on Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and state lawmakers to
intervene has received more than 211,000 signatures. LifeSiteNews has
also launched its own petition
calling to support James and his father, which will be delivered to the
governor and Jeffrey Younger. LifeSite’s petition has collected more
than 26,000 signatures so far.

Republicans, who seem to have nothing better to do with their time

jurisdiction to interfere with these state laws.”
Several prominent conservative commentators also called on
Gov. Abbott and state and federal lawmakers to intervene, as well as for
President Donald Trump to help bring more attention to the case:
