This is almost unbelievable:
On September 22, AB 1184, which was cosponsored by Planned Parenthood, became law. As the California Family Council explains, this diktat “prohibits insurance companies from revealing to the policyholder the ‘sensitive services’ of anyone on their policy, including minor children, even though the policy owner is financially responsible for the services.” The term “sensitive services” refers to all health care services related to mental or behavioral health, sexual and reproductive health, sexually transmitted infections, substance use disorder, gender affirming care, etc. The bill doesn’t detail the kindly sounding “gender affirming care,” but as defined by the University of California, San Francisco, it’s hormone therapy and a laundry list of surgeries including vaginectomy, scrotoplasty, voice modification, etc., ad nauseam.
And all these goodies start when the child is 12 years old! So, if your daughter, who is in 7th grade, wakes up one day and decides she rather be a boy, she can now act on it. She starts with puberty blockers, and uses your family insurance policy to pay for the services rendered. When the statement is sent to you, there is no explanation of any procedures she underwent. It’s a dirty little secret between your kid, her doctor and the insurance company. You, the parents, are reduced to insurance bill-paying bystanders.
I say almost unbelievable--because is it truly so hard to believe that such a law was passed in California?
Lefties say they want parents involved--until the parents make a decision not in accord with unicornian politics. Then, the state just takes over. Problem solved!
