NEW YORK, August 19 (C-Fam) “Facts – not ideology – determine reality,” the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) said in a warning to legislators and educators about the dangers of surgical and medical sex change operations to children.
“Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse,” the physicians said, “Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery, even in Sweden which is among the most LGBTQ – affirming countries.”
The group, which aims at getting parents involved in their children’s health and education about health, said, “Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one,” and that, “A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.”
To the contrary, the group maintained that human sexuality is a “binary trait” and said the XY and XX chromosomes that determine female or male sex are “genetic markers of health” not “genetic markers of a disorder.”

WASHINGTON DC, August 19 (C-Fam) Last week the main body of the Organization of American States, upon request of the Uruguay mission to the OAS, included remarks from the “2016 Global LGBT(I) Human Rights Conference”, which took place in Montevideo last July.
The 2016 Global LGBT Human Rights Conference convened the nascent “Equal Rights Coalition” (ERC), a group of thirty states pledging to promote the LGBT rights agenda worldwide.
Many people still do not know whether their countries are signatories of the new coalition. Not only has this news gone underreported, but in none of these states were citizens asked about their views on the ERC agenda, which would boost and fund LGBT campaigns around the globe.
Among the recommendations, the coalition agreed “to amplify lesbian organizations within the LGBTI movement, and fund a stand-alone lesbian conference.” Considering that “many of the organizational leaders and workers (LGBT) are struggling financially,” they would “fund them accordingly.”
International agreements do not require a vote by the people. Governments, however, have a legal duty to promote “universally recognized” human rights; they cannot unilaterally export policies that create new ones.
