Illinois Democrats have proposed an amendment to a parental abuse bill that would classify refusing to allow a child to undergo sex change surgeries as abuse.

It would make it a crime punishable by prison for a parent who prohibits their child from surgically change sexes.

House Bill 4876, introduced by Democrat Rep. Anne Stava-Murray, acts as an amendment to the state's Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act. The bill would classify parents who deny medical care such as primary care services, abortion services, or gender-affirming services as committing child abuse.



It also amends the state's Consent by Minors to Health Care Services Act.

According to HB 4876, the definition of an abused child "means a child whose parent or immediate family member, or any person responsible for the child's welfare, or any individual residing in the same home as the child, or a paramour of the child's parent denies the child access to necessary medical care, including, but not limited to, primary care services, abortion services, or gender-affirming services."

The bill further states that "consent to the performance of abortion services and gender-affirming services executed by a minor is not voidable because of such minority."

Additionally, healthcare providers would not face any form of disciplinary action if they were to perform services sought out by minors without parental consent.

"Health care professional rendering abortion services and gender-affirming services shall not incur civil or criminal liability for failure to obtain valid consent or professional discipline for failure to obtain valid consent if the health care professional relied in good faith on representations made by the minor," the bill states.

If found guilty of child abuse, according to state law, an individual can face up to 15 years in prison and fines up to $25,000.
