A left-wing judge in Indiana has charged parents with “child abuse” because they oppose radical transgenderism.
A teen girl was removed from the couple’s home after the court alleged that her parents “verbally abused her” because of her claim to be transgender, according to The Indiana Lawyer.
The parents claimed that their religious and free speech rights were being violated by the court, not to mention their right to raise their child. They appealed the decision and lost.
The decision reported that on May 11, 2021, the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS), received a report “alleging that Mother was verbally and emotionally abusing then-sixteen-year-old Child by using rude and demeaning language toward child regarding child’s transgender identity, and as a result, Child had thoughts of self-harm.”
The court sided with the trans kid.
The judge said:
“In their appellants’ brief, the Parents’ sufficiency of the evidence argument rests largely on their contention that the Dispositional Order is contrary to the CHINS-6 statute because the order is based on parental acts or omissions related to their repudiation of Child’s transgender identity,” Judge Terry Crone wrote. “We have already found no merit to this argument.
“The Parents also contend that they participated in the DCS case management plan, maintained a safe and sanitary home, and sought medical and therapeutic services before the State became involved, and that Mother testified that she believed that they would be able to continue treatment while having Child at home,” Crone continued. “This argument is merely an invitation to reweigh the evidence, which we must decline.”
This is an outrage.
Parents clearly have no rights in the face of fake claims of transgenderism.Commentary
