We give God praise for the fact that we can freely gather in His name. May His praise be glorious in our midst today.
California’s Governor, Gavin Newsom, recently signed into law a bill which is nothing less than a frontal assault on parental rights. The bill also hurts the very children it claims to protect. AB 1184 is reported by California Family Council to prohibit insurance companies from revealing to the policyholder the ‘sensitive’ services of anyone on that policy, including minor children, even though the policy owner is financially responsible for the services. These ‘sensitive’ services include abortions, sexual assault treatment, drug abuse and mental health treatment, cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers, and sex-change operations.
In California now, minors can consent to all of these sensitive treatments, under certain conditions, after the age of 12, except for sex-change surgeries. They can also consent to abortions at any age. This is exactly what this bill entails. Not only can your 13 year-old child make radical, life-altering decisions, such as having an abortion in California, without your knowledge or consent, but your child can use your family insurance policy to pay for that abortion, and when your insurance statement comes, there will be no explanation of services. In fact, your insurance provider will be prohibited from disclosing to you what your own child has done and what your policy has covered. This is now the law in California.
A minor child in California can now choose to get treated with cross-sex hormones or puberty blockers, drugs which can have disastrous lifelong consequences, without possibly being able to understand the implications of what he or she is doing, and that by law. You as a parent cannot intervene or do anything about it. Your child doesn’t have to tell you. The doctors don’t have to tell you. And your insurers don’t have to tell you. It is important to note that the passage of this bill is being celebrated by the governor and his colleagues. And we need to be all on guard, because ‘as California goes, so goes the nation.”
One must ask the question, who gave the government such intrusive, potentially destructive powers? The only one who could have inspired the governor and his colleagues to do such a thing is the Devil himself. God has put children under the care of their parents, not under the care of the government. Our nation is in serious decline and only God can help us. Let us earnestly pray against this evil in California and for our nation as a whole. God still answers prayer!
