Just who the fuck do you people think you are?
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.
"It is trespassing on the hearts, the minds, the bodies of our children," said Lori Porter of Parents' Rights in Education. "They're our children. And for a decision, a life-altering decision like that to be done unbeknownst to a parent or guardian, it's mindboggling."
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.
HERC officials refused repeated requests by Fox News for an interview and even gave Fox News inaccurate information about the medical director's work schedule.
Oregon Health Authority officials directed Fox News to their website. It shows transgender policy was discussed at four meetings in 2014. It was passed without any opposition or even discussion about teenagers' new access to undergoing a sex change.
Let me tell you communist motherfuckers something, you do not, and will not ever have the power to facilitate life long ,life changing, sexual reassignment surgeries for children under 18 without parental consent no matter how many times you vote yourselves that privilege.
Every single adult who thought this was even remotely a good idea should be publicly humiliated at every opportunity and hounded back to that freak show state of Kalifornia from whence they came.
Oregon used to be a relatively common sense state, I know because I grew up there,
About twenty five years ago however, the mass exodus of Californians Northward began in earnest and the effects were noticeable immediately.
It is readily apparent to me that now Oregon is merely an extension of California with an imaginary line drawn at what used to be a border between the two.
Even worse, at the same time they were invading Oregon, they started invading South West Washington and the effects were also immediate.
City councils were overrun and The Stupid became the order of the day.
It's sickening and only getting worse.
This particular instance of over reach however is extremely repugnant and should be stuffed back into the box of really fucking bad ideas and locked away forever.
Those responsible should also be barred from holding any position that could possibly affect the population in general, anywhere.
