Oregon Age of Consent - 15 yrs - for Transexuals

There are things that I can be tolerant about - believe it or not. I don't care if two consenting adults bugger themselves silly. I have absolutely no tolerance for situations where the state encourages this type of conduct when it comes to children.
(Fox News) The list of things 15-year-olds are not legally allowed to do in Oregon is long: Drive, smoke, donate blood, get a tattoo -- even go to a tanning bed.

But, under a first-in-the-nation policy quietly enacted in January that many parents are only now finding out about, 15-year-olds are now allowed to get a sex-change operation. Many residents are stunned to learn they can do it without parental notification -- and the state will even pay for it through its Medicaid program, the Oregon Health Plan.
In a statement, Oregon Health Authority spokeswoman Susan Wickstrom explained it this way: "Age of medical consent varies by state. Oregon law -- which applies to both Medicaid and non-Medicaid Oregonians -- states that the age of medical consent is 15."

While 15 is the medical age of consent in the state, the decision to cover sex-change operations specifically was made by the Health Evidence Review Commission (HERC).

Members are appointed by the governor and paid by the state of Oregon. With no public debate, HERC changed its policy to include cross-sex hormone therapy, puberty-suppressing drugs and gender-reassignment surgery as covered treatments for people with gender dysphoria, formally known as gender identity disorder.
The nation is caught up in a celebration of sodomy. I understand that. The President of the United States painted the White House with rainbow light in affirmation of that celebration. The Supreme Court seems to think that there is a Constitutional right involved with this.

There needs to be a line drawn, and government funded transgender operations on children who are fifteen years old - without so much as parental consent, crosses that line. I'm sure that the people of Oregon are so proud of this - it's so progressive. I don't live in Oregon but I do believe that states have the right to make decisions regarding their own people. However when it comes to children and the perversion of transgender surgery, how can anyone condone this?

People responsible for enacting this law have the hearts of beasts, not humans. They need to be held accountable and treated the way one would deal with a rabid dog.

  2. It may be the law but I can't believe any health care provider with any integrity would go along with it. Yeah, even at age 70 I remain naive.

    1. I have always thought there were places where queers would not tread. Apparently I was wrong.

    2. I would like to stand with WSF, but at this point, someone would sue the provider for not obliging immediately.
      Revolting.

    3. Doctors who specialize in transgender therapy and surgery are few and far between. I think that they see this law as gold in their pockets. Compared to this class of medical professionals, the famous Nazi researcher, Dr. Josef Mengele looks positively moral. Thomas de Torquemada, the Grand Inquisitor of the Spanish Inquisition would seem to be a man of high ideals.

  3. Oh my word. I thought Oregon was liberal crazy, but I didn't know they had gone this far. A fifteen year old can't sign a binding legal contract, but they can transgender? I think the word outrageous is over used, but I think it applies in this case.

    1. It's one of the cruelest, most evil things I've seen come out of government because it clearly exploits adolescents who are unsure of just about everything in life.

    1. Just when you thought that the daily outrage was up at the top of the outrage-o-meter, they pull this off.

  6. Frogs. Frogs in a pot of water. The heat was turned up so gradually for decades and now the water is starting to boil. America tolerated this crap when we should have been screaming our lungs out and trashing politicians'/judges' offices.

    1. It doesn't get more utopian than having government funded gender changes available for all adolescents.

  8. In some states, a 15 year old who is injured at school can NOT receive pain relieving medication without the consent of a parent. I'll bet there are schools in Oregon that still operate that way (far from Portland or Eugene). But the state government will let them have a doctor cut their genitals off?

    Seriously, have these people never met a 15 year old? Rare is the 15 year old who feels and thinks one week the same they do the next. Hormones are not only raging - they are temperamental - they should at least pass a law (since that fixes everything) that the genitals should be kept on ice for a period of time before being discarded…I'm just sayin'….
