    Get out of our lives.

    You say it’s for children in welfare… your city, rules, and regulations fosters an environment for children to continue to be born in said system. Stop creeping into people’s live and families under the guise of “safety and well-being.”

    The city can’t get basic services done correctly and it wants to give itself the permission to do this?

    NO. I am very opposed to this bill. This is agenda backed by evil people who want to use this to change or “correct” a child’s gender to what they think or want it to be. Not what the child actually is as dictated by their chromosomes.
