The fate of a bill to fund transgender treatments that permanently destroy the reproductive systems of minors is now in the hands of nine California State Senators.
AB 2218, authored by Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D) Los Angeles with principal co-author Senator Scott Wiener (D) San Francisco, will be heard before the nine members Senate Health Committee when they return to the capitol at the end of the month.
The bill has already made its way through the Democrat-dominated state Assembly with little debate and approved largely along party lines.
It establishes an “LGBT Transgender Wellness Fund,” to provide grants to nonprofits, hospitals, health care clinics (like Planned Parenthood), and other medical providers to pay for puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and mastectomies for minors, as well as cross-sex hormones and “sex-change” operations for adults.
Originally the bill asked for $15 million to start the fund, but that amount was recently removed from the bill text Now the exact figure added to the fund will be decided by the legislature at a later date.
According to Dr. Quentin Van Meter, a board-certified pediatric endocrinologist who testified against AB 2218 in the Assembly Health Committee, studies show children who are treated with cross-sex hormones for their gender confusion have “significant mental health issues,” that remain even after hormone therapy.
Van Meter warned legislators that the state would be sued in the coming years for funding transgender affirming treatments for troubled and vulnerable children because they destroy healthy body tissue, sterilize the recipient, and cause irreversible damage.

A “Wellness Fund” for those suffering from gender dysphoria should be for psychiatry, not drugs and surgeries. They are sick in the head, not in the body. This is false and misplaced “compassion” wrapped in a big rainbow flag. It will not end well.
This man has a normal body, yet he wants to destroy the bodies of innocent children, and people vote for him. Puberty blockers destroy children’s bodies, so they cannot be complete, normal adults. This is not correction for deformities to make one a complete person according to the sex in which one was born. This is mutilation.
If you don’t leave California, you get what’s coming. You can’t stop the momentum. Face the facts. If you live there, it’s going to be hell on earth. The devil has the keys to your house and your car and is dating your daughter and has your debit card with the PIN. If you stay, don’t complain about what happens. The writing has been on the wall for long enough that anyone with average intelligence could see what’s coming.
But wait… Gomez consecrated the state and later the whole country to Mary.
Kevin – So, I guess you don’t wear a brown scapular or pray the rosary?
Judging by your many comments in this vein, I think that you are a vending machine Catholic. You know, the kind who expects if he prays will immediately get what he wants. ie puts a coin in the machine, pulls a lever, and there’s your candy bar.
I’d offer to pray for you but it probably wouldn’t work, right?
What you deride as a vending machine Catholic is just people want it to make sense and some proof. If God doesn’t help or save his people, what good is he? He saved people in the Bible. I’m just reminding people that everything that has been done: the consecrations, the rosaries, the faithfulness hasn’t helped much if at all. The Church and the country are melting down. Yes, if you keep putting money in a vending machine and never get anything back from it, if it just swallows your money and you put more into it time and again, you’re a fool. So your analogy is true to a point. What can Gomez point to as the fruits of his prayers? Oh, we need to stay faithful and do more? More prayers? Then you’re just putting more money into a machine that hasn’t given you anything back.
Kevin is a nihilist or poorly catechized. Maybe both.
It’s called Faith.
You want simple vending machine type answers and there aren’t any that will satisfy you. I could encourage you to find a good holy priest to talk about this. I could enjoin you to more frequent confession and adoration. I could encourage you to take a catholic bible study class on line and really learn John’s bread of life discourse. I could encourage you to learn Marian apparitions at Fatima, Lourdes and Akita for a better understanding of what is going on. But, that would require more effort AND supremely more Faith and Hope. than complaining on the this website.
I take it back. You likely not a nihilst. But you need to grow up and man up.
Kevin T, this a CATHOLIC site. Your anti-Catholic ramblings are those of an angry troll, not a seeker. Find another outlet for your venom.
A four year old photo of Senatot Scott Weiner? Is nothing more current available?
Imagine…No California , its easy if you try,
After 25 years, I am leaving CA and have purchased a home in the boonies of Arizona. Yes, I can see the writing on the wall here and elsewhere. Things may get as bad in AZ but it’s a matter of buying some time, trying to delay the inevitable.
“Fate of transgender treatment for minors in hands of state Senate committee”
Nauseating to contemplate !
Can we assume the fate of the Weiner is in his own hands ??
Yes this is criminal child abuse sanctioned by ungodly legislators given over to Satan. Such is the result of defying the Natural/Moral Law given us by God as a mainstay of His providential mercy. It is more than insane — it is pure evil, masquerading as a great good, as evil often does. Legislators, prepare to meet your God at Judgment. It is He who said, Cause one of these little ones to stumble, and it would be better for a millstone to be hung on your necks and be drowned in the sea (Matt 18:6). Now is the time of mercy; don’t waste this opportunity and do the right thing: repent of this outrage and be reconciled to God.
With puberty blockers the Chicken Hawks can now keep their catamites forever young.
Once the children are indoctrinated and confused, hormones are given, body mutilation aka sex changes start and the person goes through life never knowing the Lord and not able to fully function as rational human, also unable to reproduce. This was planned from the beginning. Big pharma, politicians, Bill Gates and Satan are reassured that everything is going as planned.
