Peter Welch backs transgender therapy for children

By Guy Page

Rep. Peter Welch has co-sponsored the “Trans Bill of Rights,” a resolution introduced June 28 into the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill, whose lead sponsor is Pramila Jayapal (D-Washington), would add transgender and non-binary Americans to the list of groups of people protected by existing civil rights legislation. It also would appear to expand access to transgender treatments for youth.

The resolution calls for “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The resolution does not itemize the “unnecessary governmental restrictions.” A Vermont bill with similar language, however, would eliminate the need for parental consent for children seeking puberty blockers and hormone therapy.

“Trans folks deserve to live happy, healthy, and safe lives. They deserve to be protected and supported, not attacked,” Welch tweeted Tuesday, June 28. “That’s why I’ve joined @RepJayapal to introduce a Trans Bill of Rights and provide essential protections for trans folks across the country.”

  1. Don’t be fooled. He has no interest in the those with gender confusion, except that people make a lot of money selling drugs and doing surgeries destroying these people, especially young people and Welch, like most Democrats, love their money. Just the same as the abortion money they get. If he cared, he would get educated on it … for example he could read, Irreversible Damage. That is exactly what he is helping cause.

  2. Can Someone list for us, all the benefits Vermont has gained from having this ambulance chases attorney in congress. If we were using the Wizard of Oz as a metaphor, Mr. Welch would be one of Nasty Nancy’s flying monkeys! He is a loyal foot soldier in the plan to destroy the USA. Anyone who can advocate the genital mutilation of a child which is not reversible and promotes puberty blockers has a sick mind. As the comment below states, children are not mentally mature enough to make life altering decisions. Combine that with perverted teachers who groom children without parental knowledge and the childs life may be destroyed by adults who re-enforce the childs fantasy. Mr. Welch is counting on the minority voters who are transgender promoters. This is only one big reason why this man should not be allowed anywhere near the United States Senate. This is nothing less than disgusting from another political pandering hack. Leave the children alone!!!!.

  3. I’ve mentioned numerous times, that Peter Welch is a ” Follower ” not a leader, as this last
    stand on promoting the child abuse of children.

    In this liberal therapy process that’s being played out, as we know you can manipulate a child’s
    mind that is already confused most of the time, so twist it into your agenda, kids should be kids,
    not pawns………………….. Welch doesn’t care, he’s only pushing this nonsense for your vote !!

    Please vote, vote that he doesn’t get to see the Senate, Vermont deserves better and so do
    your children.
