TORONTO, Ontario — In Canada’s Ontario province, the government now has the right to seize children from families who don’t accept their child’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression,” according to The Christian Post.
The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017 passed 63–23 and requires child protection agencies and other foster and adoption service providers to take into account a child’s sexual orientation and gender identity when making decisions, the Post reported.
“I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” said Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill. “If it’s abuse and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
But Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition, said the passage of the bill heralds in an “era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history.” (TAB)
