Democrats “Right to Contraception” Bill Pushes “Trans Surgeries” on Children

Catholic pro-life leader Terry Schilling warned that the Right to Contraception Act currently being pushed by Senate Democrats is a “Trojan horse” for subjecting children to “transgender” procedures.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, has announced that the chamber will vote on the legislation Wednesday.

“What’s going on is nothing new,” Schilling told CatholicVote. Schilling serves as president of the American Principles Project (APP).

“Democrats have been hell-bent on forcing taxpayers to fund all types of ‘reproductive care,’” he continued. “And really what they mean is abortion, sterilization, contraception – everything that the Catholic Church stands against.”

“We stand on the side of life, and the Democratic Party has become a death cult,” Schilling emphasized. And in Wednesday’s vote on the Right to Contraception Act, that “death cult” is even “going after kids,” he warned.

“They have to get to kids before they can even get to adults in some situations, especially for the sex-change stuff,” the APP president said.

The Democrats wrote the bill to be “a Trojan horse for pushing sex change procedures on minors,” Schilling argued. He explained how the text of the bill goes about it:

There’s a clause in there that opens the door essentially to any activist group that wants to make the argument that these procedures have to be funded by taxpayers, because of this legislation.

“We’ve seen that this is not just a civil rights movement. It’s an industry,” Schilling pointed out. “The transgender industry is making $4.1 billion a year off of hormone procedures, sex change procedures, and surgeries.”

“They want to expand on that,” he added. “And their greatest market for expanding is with children and young people, who are impressionable.”

Schilling also said the Democrats’ push for the bill may hurt the party’s electoral prospects in some states.

“The transgender industry’s targeting of children is extremely unpopular with voters,” he pointed out. “Sixty percent of voters on average are against these procedures for minors. The vast majority of the American people want children to be protected.”

Voters’ opposition is just “common sense,” Schilling argued:

We don’t let them drink, we don’t let them drive, we don’t let them vote, and we don’t even let them consent to sex in general.

They’re not allowed to consent to sex so they can’t consent to sex change procedures. And that’s where the American people are. It’s very common sense. It’s very American. They want you to leave children alone.

So politicians that support pushing this agenda on children are doing so at their own peril.

“What’s going on with this bill is that Democrats are now trying to go on offense in the wake of Roe v. Wade and the political pushback that Republicans have received,” Schilling said. “They want to take advantage of a crisis. They don’t want to let this crisis go to waste.”

“What they’re hoping for is for Republicans to get weak-kneed and go along with what the Democrats are pushing,” Schilling warned.
