Florida Medicaid Rule to Stop Coverage of Trans-Medication
On July 8th representatives of PEC traveled to Tallahassee, Florida to speak out in favor of a legal Rule (59G- 1,050) introduced by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) to prevent Florida Medicaid from further funding ‘transgender’ drugs and surgeries. Our own Jeannette Cooper was quoted in an article by Dara Kam of the News Service of Florida as she drove home the point that young people who claim a trans identity are “being met with a medical treatment for a psychological condition.” Delivered with conviction, her powerful words continued: “We are here to state the obvious. No child can or ever will be born in the wrong body. Everybody knows what a woman is, but some people are afraid to say it. We are not afraid.” We are very proud of Jeannette and everyone who spoke out on behalf of PEC and the people we aim to protect from the gender industry.
Brave detransitioned youths, Sophie Galvin and Chloe Cole, along with several parents of children harmed by the trans-medical industry were among the 150+ passionate supporters of the Rule who gathered to raise their voices. Florida seems to be moving in the right direction, using science to guide the decision-making process around the treatment of gender dysphoria. We applaud Florida government officials, including the Florida Surgeon General, who stated his commitment to protecting children. A decision on the proposed rule that would prevent taxpayer Medicaid dollars from being used for medical treatments for gender dysphoria at any age is forthcoming.
On July 1st we launched our Boston Billboard Campaign, aiming to raise $10,000 in five days, so we could share a critical message, as pictured below. We continue to be amazed at the support we receive, and we are truly grateful to report that we raised $15,595! Three digital billboards in Boston are going up in just one week on busy routes near hospitals that harm children through “gender identity affirmation.” Thanks to your generous contributions, we can move forward with this important project. We could not do these things without you! Thank you!
Checking in with our Legal Intern, Katie
On July 8th Katie traveled with other members of PEC to Florida to show her support for the Rule to stop Medicaid’s coverage of ‘transgender’ drugs and surgeries. Katie’s passion for legally opposing the gender industry combined with her growing expertise has become an asset to our ongoing mission. Throughout the month of July Katie has been hard at work drafting a model for legislation, with factual information and real definitions for otherwise skewed language, to better address the endless legal issues the trans-medical industry creates. She is also conducting legal research, particularly focusing on informed consent laws and statutes of limitation on a state by state basis. When she is not writing articles like her Fox News piece referenced below, she continues to add her knowledge and skill to our child protective endeavors.
“It’s Bigger than Texas: Exposing the Gender Industry in America”
PEC will be hosting a rally on the steps of the Texas State Capitol in Austin, Texas on September 21 followed by a panel discussion inside the Capitol which will take the audience on a step by step path toward understanding how gender identity has become part of our lexicon, how children are the greatest victims, and what we can all do to protect them. The link to register for this all-day event in Austin, Texas will be out shortly. We hope you’ll join us in exposing the gender industry!

We Created TransitionJustice.org
Partners for Ethical Care truly cares about individuals who have been harmed by the gender industry. Many young people have succumbed to the notion that they were ‘born in the wrong body’ under heavy pressure from Gender Ideology and its promoters only to realize how they were enticed and coerced after drugs and surgeries harmed them. We created Transition Justice as a project of PEC focused on connecting individuals harmed by “gender medicine” with trusted attorneys. Inquiries continue to increase, and we are proud of the team of volunteers, professionals, and attorneys with Transition Justice working tirelessly to support these individuals. Please visit transitionjustice.org if you or someone you know has been harmed by the gender industry and would like to seek the justice we know they deserve.
