Convention of States!


White House says they're going to start targeting state lawmakers working to protect children from transgender surgeries, radical sexual ideology

Published in Blog on April 08, 2022 by Article V Patriot

Republican lawmakers in Alabama have been put "on notice," according to the White House.

The state legislature recently passed two bills aimed at protecting the innocence and well-being of children. The first would ban doctors from performing "gender reassignment surgery" on minors. Minors cannot consent to sexual activity, so it stands to reason that they also cannot consent to having their genitals permanently mutilated.

The second bill would ban "instruction" on sexuality and gender identity in schools between kindergarten and fifth grade.

For these grave sins, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters recently that the Department of Justice and Health and Human Services would launch an investigation.

"Alabama’s lawmakers and other legislators who are contemplating these … discriminatory bills have been put on notice by the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services that laws and policies preventing care that health care professionals recommend for transgender minors may violate the Constitution and federal law,” Psaki said at a press briefing.

Putting aside the issues themselves (which are deadly serious), shouldn't Alabamans have the right to decide how to run their own schools and healthcare systems? Doesn't the Alabama legislature know better what Alabamans want than bureaucrats in the DOJ and HHS?

The federal government is once again trying to flex its muscles and wield their "authority" over the will of the states. As the DOJ seeks to end these laws on "constitutional" grounds, the HHS will threaten to withhold funding and programs if the bills are signed into law. It's happened thousands of times on a host of issues, and you can expect the same story to play out here.

That is, unless We the People join with the states to call a Convention of States. A Convention of States is called under Article V of the Constitution and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. 

What does this mean in plain English? Basically, amendments can be written that get the feds out of virtually every area of state policy. Healthcare, education, energy, the environment, and agriculture would be among the host of issues that could be left to exclusively state control.

Under these amendments, Alabama would be free to protect their children while other states would also be free to pursue radical ideologies in the classroom. Americans would then be able to vote with their feet and live in areas that align with their values.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
