House Bill 89, going even further than the one passed in California and more extreme than the one under consideration in New York, would prohibit law enforcement in Vermont of returning a minor to another state if that minor is being prevented from undergoing a sex change in that other state, regardless of whether or not there is a custody dispute, or if that minor is a runaway.
This law defines as "abusive litigation" that which would prevent a minor from undergoing a sex change, and law enforcement is prevented from extraditing a person to another state if that person will face "abusive litigation." Parental rights are not a consideration in this bill, which seeks to enshrine access to abortion and sex changes in state law.
The bill's definition of "abusive litigation" is "litigation or other legal action to deter, prevent, sanction, or punish any person engaging in legally protected health care activity..."
"This bill proposes to define legally protected health care activity to include reproductive health care services and gender-affirming care..., prohibit a public agency from cooperating in an interstate investigation or proceeding seeking to impose civil or criminal liability upon a person or entity for obtaining or providing legally protected health care..., prohibit the extradition of a non-fugitive person in connection with abusive litigation in another jurisdiction..."
In a dispute between two parents, one of whom is in favor of the child undergoing sex change and one of whom is opposed, the parent who is in favor can take the child to Vermont and Vermont law enforcement will be powerless to return the child to their home state, or to reunite them with their other parent. For Vermont, that other parent is engaging in abuse by not going along with the child's alleged wish for sex change.
Speaking on the Disaffected Podcast, Josh Slocum said that the bill was "the most horrifying bill [he's] ever seen."
The bill passed the House where it was voted for by 24 of the state's 38 Republicans, and by all Democrats in the 150-seat legislative body. It now moves on to the Senate.
"House bill 89 legalizes child kidnapping and torture in the state of Vermont," Slocum said. "It doesn't say that, it calls it something else. The entire bill calls horrifying brutality something nice. This bill is about so-called gender affirming care. That is: chemical and physical castration and mutilation of children."
This Vermont bill has much in common with a bill that was passed in California to make that state a "sanctuary" for minors seeking sex changes. In fact, if a child runs away to California to escape parents who won't authorize sex changes, or from a state that has made the mutilation of children under the guise of curing gender dysphoria a crime, the state will take custody of the child, pay for the sex changes, and not return the child to their home state, or their parents.
