“Canada has now amended their “child protection” laws to add “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.” The vote for Canada’s Bill 89 was 63 yes and 23 no.
Based on the statements made by supporters and other enforcement practices in Canada, this law will result in massive harrassment and “enforcement” by the mass abduction of children from Christian families in Candada who oppose homosexual sexual practices as a matter of Christian or moral faith,” said Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
Lifesite News reports:
Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne Liberals have passed what critics describe as “totalitarian” Bill 89 by a vote of 63 to 23 on the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer.
Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.
Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, repeals and replaces the former Child and Family Services Act that governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.
It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”
At the same time, it deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates child protection services consider only the child’s own “creed” or “religion” when assessing the best interests of the child.
