Legislation passed by the Canadian province of Ontario has granted authorities the right to take children away from parents who refuse to accept their children’s “gender identity.” Critics of the new measure launched a petition aiming for a repeal of the “totalitarian” child abuse bill.
Out of Ontario’s 86 legislators, 63 voted in favor of Bill 89 or “The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017” on June 1.
The legislation replaces the Child and Family Services Act which used to govern child protection, foster care and adoption services in the province.
The new law includes “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered by child protection services “in the best interests of the child.”
It deprives parents of their earlier right to “direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” (Read more from “New Law Allows Govt to Seize Children If Parents Oppose Their ‘Gender Identity'” HERE)
