Deputies in Portugal recently voted to allow teenagers as young as 16 to change their gender and name in the civil registry with only one statement from a clinician – no parental consent necessary:
Presented by the far-left and with the support of the left-wing political parties, the first version of this law allowed individuals with at least 16 years of age to change their identity in their ID and in the civil registration without any medical prescription. The Portuguese President, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, vetoed this first version of the law, claiming that it is necessary during the changing process of someone’s identity a “previous medical evaluation” in order to consolidate the decision and to allow the individual to the medical surgery and the alteration of his ID.
…Far-left’s Bloco de Esquerda (BE) also welcomed the “huge breakthrough” of this law but preferred to have gone further. “The Bloco de Esquerda bill foresaw some proposals that went further, with children under the age of 16 being able to access the law, with regard only to the change of name and gender in the civil registry, and immigrants and asylum-seekers with valid residence permit, which other flee their countries where they are threatened with death because they are transsexual people.”, claimed the party.
If these radical communists had gotten their way, they would have given these same rights to illegal African invaders who show up in Portugal.
Transgenderism is being pushed by the hard Left not because they truly believe in transgender rights – rather, this agenda will be one of the final nails in the coffin of traditional marriage and families.
The jewish marxist Vladimir Lenin strongly believed that the destruction of the nuclear family was essential before communism could take over any society.
So if a teenager goes to his doctor and says he wants to cut off his own arm or leg, he’ll be sent to a psychiatrist, but if he tells his doctor he wants to cut off his penis, he’s told he’s normal–and the government will pay for the surgery. That makes total sense.
