For years we’ve been opposing HB 1190, which would give the MA Dept. of Children and Families (DCF) the power to remove children from their parents if they received counseling for unwanted same-sex desires or gender confusion.
Last night we received a phone call that the MA House of Representatives is voting on it TOMORROW! We need to urge legislators who don’t understand the stakes here to tell their leadership to tap the breaks. So, even if your legislator is very liberal or very conservative, please call.

We all need to call and email our State Representatives today and get as many of our friends and family members as we can to do the same. I know we’re all busy, but we’ve got to make them hear from us today that they cannot brand a Catholic understanding of human sexuality as “child abuse.”
Tell them NOT to pass House Bill 1190, the so-called “Act relative to abusive practices to change sexual orientation and gender identity in minors.” When you click on the button there’s a script that makes it easy for you.
Already in Massachusetts, children are being encouraged to “transition” from one gender to the other and even get injections of synthetic hormones. If a 15 year old girl, for example, feels like a boy, she can get counseling on how to live like a boy, use the boy’s bathroom and locker room at school, get testosterone “treatment,” and even be steered towards a double elective mastectomy. But if this law passes, parents who take that same 15 year old girl to receive counseling to affirm her womanhood and to help her literally feel comfortable in her own body would be guilty of “child abuse.”
Imagine, your child has confusing feelings about his gender, and you bring him to your pastor, who suggests he talk to a professional counselor about those feelings, one that’s Catholic and understands your views and the church’s views on the issue. Then, he tells his teacher at school he went to a Catholic counselor that urged him to embrace his natural gender. You would be reported to the Department of Children and Families and your son would be removed from your home.
DCF has already unlawfully removed at least one teenage boy from his parent’s home because a social worker did not approve of the counseling he was getting and then placed him in an LGBT “affirming” home. If this bill passes, there’ll be no stopping them.
Where will parents turn if a loved one is struggling with his or her sexuality during adolescence? This bill will force parents to either not get their children help or else risk the state taking them away. PLEASE, CALL AND EMAIL TODAY!!
