“This surgery is absolutely destructive” — sad message from former transgender to warn others

[This was posted on their site several years ago by MassResistance.  It seems highly relevant today]

What the activists don’t tell you . . .

Tragic story.Walt Heyer: At left as himself. At right as Laura Jensen.

POSTED: June 16, 2011

But there’s another, much darker side to that story that doesn’t get out: The fraudulent and destructive nature of the transgender movement and the harm it does to vulnerable people.

But MassResistance was at the hearing to tell that side of it. As we mentioned in our last email, we were submitting testimony from the daughter of a man who “became” a woman, and testimony from a happily recovered transgender female.

We were also contacted by a Walt Heyer, a man whose surgery to “change” him into a female has had horrific long-term effects for him.

Jackson Doughart: There is no constitutional right to abortion-on-demand

 | May 2, 2014The Morgentaler ruling only struck down the established and specific abortion law which required women to apply to a therapeutic abortion committee for any termination, including ones that would alleviate an immediate threat to the mother’s health such as ectopic pregnancy. As well, some regions of the country were not equipped with such committees, meaning that women who needed a therapeutic abortion but could not access a committee-equipped hospital had to choose between breaking the law and preserving their own health. It was this measure, and this measure alone, that the Court struck down when it ruled in the Morgentaler case. It did not decree that any law restricting abortion amounted to a violation of the Charter right to security of the person, which is the thrust of the pro-abortionists’ present argument.[Read the whole article online here or here.]
