As I’m sure you know, Gov. Brad Little signed the “Vulnerable Child Protection Act” (House Bill 71a) earlier this evening, protecting gender-confused children from harmful puberty blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries.
We can’t overstate the importance of this victory—and we definitely owe it in part to your biblical citizenship and your support of this ministry.
The Vulnerable Child Protection Act was drafted four years ago by Idaho Family Policy Center, and this is our third legislative session that we’ve introduced and championed it.
I’m not going to lie: This has been a long battle over the last few years, but looking back, we can now see God’s good providence through it all. In our first year, we never even received a committee vote. In our second year, we made it off the House floor with a veto-proof supermajority, but we never received a Senate committee hearing.
Despite the false starts and setbacks, we never gave up. We doubled down this year, partnering with two great bill sponsors, Rep. Bruce Skaug (R-Nampa) and Sen. Lori Den Hartog (R-Meridian). And when our bill finally passed the House and then made it off the Senate floor a couple weeks back, it became clear that we were on the verge of making history.
Recognizing the moment, our team at Idaho Family Policy Center immediately shifted toward launching a massive grassroots mobilization campaign that directly connected Idaho residents with the governor’s office. Thousands of you responded, using our Action Center to send emails and make phone calls asking Gov. Little to sign the bill.
In the end, it was all worth it. The Vulnerable Child Protection Act goes into full force and effect on January 1, 2024, after which no gender dysphoric child in the State of Idaho will ever again be subjected to medically unnecessary interventions that result in irreparable infertility, chronic health problems, and mutilated reproductive organs.
Thanks for your prayers and support that made all of this possible. Soli Deo gloria!
President, Idaho Family Policy Center
Thank you for supporting these very important issues and fighting for God’s children… please continue to keep us up to speed and proactive against Satan’s agenda🙏
Fuck you all for your transphobia and working to increase youth suicides. God is not on your side with all of this bullshit. May you all face his wrath for what you work towards and your hypocrisy!
May God open your eyes Rochelle 🙏🏾. I will pray for you. God will always protect the children. We must continue to work for our Lord and help protect the children from Satan’s work. This is not transphobia this is protecting children from adults making decisions for them. If a child after becoming an adult wants to make that decision of change after 18 or even after 23 when the child’s frontal lobe has completely developed then so be it, not that God accepts it, but then that’s between them and God. Suicide is up on these poor children that have been changed and wanting to go back to their original genders as well. This is a mental issue, which should be taught and helped in school as well, not gender disformia and it’s also a parental issue not parenting or listening to their kids. When God is out of the house/family/school bad things happen. I hope you will come to church to soften your heart.
Thank you!!!!! I was afraid that Little would not sign it. I emailed and called him to sign it. Others I know also did the same.
