Senator Mike Moon’s SB49, known as the “Save Adolescents from
Experimentation” bill or “SAFE Act” has been passed over to be heard on the
Senate floor twice so far this week. Senate Democrats have been prepared to
With this knowledge in hand, Speaker Pro Tem, Senator Cindy O’Laughlin (18th
District), who has stated she doesn’t like to “stay late” at the capitol building to
discuss legislation, decided that the bill will be “carried over”.
What does this mean?
It means that there is a good chance that Moon’s bill, which protects children
from life-altering gender reassignment surgeries and puberty-blockers here in
Missouri, will not get heard on the Senate floor.
Why? Why wouldn’t Senate Republicans want to support this bill? Is it truly
because O’Laughlin doesn’t like to stay late? It is because Senate Republicans are
focused on not ruffling the feathers of Senate leadership so that their own
legislation can have the opportunity to be heard?
Perhaps they no longer wish to fight for the constituents who elected them to
office and have been asking for legislation just such as this?
Republicans have the majority in the Senate. Twenty-four Republican senators
were elected by their constituents to protect the rights of all Missouri citizens.
Currently, SB49 only has two co-sponsors – Rick Brattin and Bill Eigel. Where
are the other 21 conservative senators?!
Have you seen this whistleblower’s testimony about the child mutilation
occurring at Washington University’s Children’s Hospital?
If SB49 is brought to the floor, it will only need seventeen votes to be passed on
to the House of Representatives. Seventeen! This is attainable.
We can protect Missouri’s children if only this legislation is given a chance!
Surely there are seventeen Republican senators who care about life-altering
surgeries and drugs on Missouri’s minors.
Moon’s “Safe Act” prevents puberty-blockers and life-altering surgeries to be
performed on minors. Once puberty-blockers are given, there is no going back.
Young bodies are changed forever.
Supporters of Moon’s SAFE Act include Luka Hein and Chloe Cole, both of
whom transitioned gender as minors and have since regretted their decisions.
You can watch their powerful testimonies HERE.
Missouri is not the only state seeking to protect minors from life-altering
mutilation and drugs. Mississippi governor, Tate Reeves, recently signed the
REAP Act into law; and countless other states across the nation are looking to
legislation to protect their children from gender re-assignment surgeries and
Missouri can be a leader in protecting children just like Mississippi!
