Is Your Child Happy With His/Her Gender?

April 21, 2008 09:00 AM
Sometimes headlines jump off the page and you wonder whether or not they are designed to suck you into a story that has nothing whatsoever to do with the headline!  So I was quite curious when I saw the headline proclaiming, "Children’s hospital launches sex change for kids program."

I was positive that what I was about to read would be far less sensational than what the headline suggested. That was my first error in judgment. The story is enough to make one stop and think about what one can do to shield little children from the hedonistic concepts that have clearly invaded every aspect of childhood development.

From the decision to make prescription birth control pills available at King Middle School in Maine to this announcement from Boston’s Children’s Hospital it is clear that any aspect of childhood that can be assaulted will be by the social planners who believe that a sexually saturated society is good for everyone. Why else would we be reading about such travesties as those I mentioned above?

Don’t want to believe it? Well, here are some comments made by author and columnist Pagan Kennedy, a woman who wrote a biography of Michael Dillon entitled The First Man-made Man: The Story of Two Sex Changes, One Love Affair, and a Twentieth-Century Medical Revolution.

Kennedy, an apologist for this new surgical adventure for pre-pubescent children said, “Little boys sob unless they’re allowed to wear dresses. The girls want to be called Luke, Ted or James.” She further said, “Until recently, children with cross-gender feelings rarely received modern medical care – and certainly not hormone shots. After all, who would allow a child to redesign his or her body?”
My first thought was: “Who would?” The answer is obviously that parents would. And they do.

Dr. Spack goes into a little more detail in the article I read, but I think you are getting the idea and I need not belabor the point. The question I have about this is woven into the questions American Life League’s Stop Planned Parenthood International has been asking for years now: What is it about sexuality that invites the secular world to experiment with every kind of personal invasion a person could imagine? These agendas are brought to us by the very same people who spend an inordinate amount of time denying the truth about God’s gift of sexuality, the value of purity and the dignity of the human person.

If Planned Parenthood and its cohorts are not promoting the use of the book, It’s Perfectly Normal they’re passing out birth control to preteens or inviting children to search out their “inner self,” possibly to discover they are not the gender they thought they were!

As Mass Resistance, a citizens’ group in Massachusetts opposed to this surgery, has said of Dr. Spack’s clinic, "We don't think that demonic is too strong a word to describe this. It brings us thoughts of the Nazi doctors who thought they were doing good things."

We have to agree. The evil one is working overtime against children of all ages, from the time their life begins onward. May the Lord grant each of us the strength to remain vigilant.
