Demonstrating the importance of state governance, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed two laws this week that will protect children from the risks associated with today's transgender push.
The first law bans doctors from providing gender-affirming health care to minors. This includes performing sex changes on children and prescribing hormone treatment drugs.
The long-term consequences of fighting the body's natural biological development are not known. Reynolds has said studies are necessary to learn more about the effects of certain medications and procedures.
The second measure requires students to use the restroom and locker room that corresponds with their biological sex.
“We need to just pause; we need to understand what these emerging therapies actually may potentially do to our kids,” Reynolds said. “My heart goes out to them. I’m a parent, I’m a grandmother, I know how difficult this is. This is an extremely uncomfortable position for me to be in. I don’t like it. But I have to do what I believe right now is in the best interest of the kids.”
While the mainstream media reports that the two bills "will restrict the rights of transgender young people in the state," Renolds' actions emphasize the importance of state authority over the federal government.
The Biden administration has insisted Americans accept the idea that men can be women. As recently highlighted, the State Department bestowed a courage award upon a biological man for International Women's Day.
Ten states since 2021 have enacted measures restricting transgender procedures on minors. The people of each individual state are better represented at the local level. No matter if it's New York, Texas, or anywhere in between, the people can better rely on representation from their regional leaders than far away D.C. bureaucrats.
Convention of States is working to reduce the influence of the federal government and return the power to state governments, where it was always intended to be placed.
By calling an Article V convention, the states can say "no more" to the power abuses of Washington, D.C. politicians.
