Superstar Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene takes aim at the transgender youth movement with the Protect Children’s Innocence Act
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is among the most prominent conservative voices in the nation. Like many conservatives, she takes issue with the grooming of minors and the idea that minors should begin “gender affirming care,” or “transitioning” before they’re even old enough to vote or buy alcohol.
Therefore, she is introducing a new bill called the Protect Children’s Innocence Act which would flat-out prohibit all “gender-affirming” care for minors within the United States, offering protection to any minor who has already been subject to this ridiculous and inhumane practice.
From the Post Millennial:
The bill is co-sponsored by Mary Miller (IL), Jeff Duncan (SC), Bob Good (VA), Matt Gaetz (FL), and Ralph Norman (SC) and Tony Gonzalez (TX). Of those in the GOP who do not back the bill, or who acquiesce to the medical gender transition of minors, Greene says they are “worthless.” In June, some GOP lawmakers broached the Protecting Minors from Medical Malpractice Act, so that minors could sue those doctors that harmed them through “gender affirmative care.”
The bill turns pharmaceutical “gender affirmation” for minors into a class C felony which could be punished by up to 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. It also prevents all taxpayer funded insurance plans from paying for any “gender-affirming care” for minors.
Additionally, all schools will be banned from providing instructions on how to receive such care. Furthermore, victimized minors will be able to sue a provider who gave them such “care.”
The bill clearly lays out that no minor who underwent surgeries, or pharmaceutical intervention for the purpose of gender transition, would be held liable, instead saying that the minor would have recourse “against each person who performed the gender affirming care.”
But what is “gender-affirming care?” It covers a wide range of mostly pharmaceutical and surgical alterations to the body and hormones for transgender individuals including puberty blockers, hormone replacement therapy, castration, facial feminization surgery, hysterectomies, elective mastectomies, and more.
Tomorrow, I will introduce the Protect Children’s Innocence Act to criminalize the child abuse that many call “gender-affirming care.”

This bill comes as a response to the recent exposure of medical facilities, such as Boston Children’s Hospital, have been exposed targeting minors with these types of procedures.
Marjorie Taylor Greene and her bill’s co-sponsors are the first Republicans at the federal level to introduce legislation of this scope and caliber to try and put an end to grooming children into transitioning.
