Biden Explicitly Endorses Sex Changes for Children During ABC News Town Hall

October 15, 2020

WASHINGTON — Today, American Principles Project (APP) condemned Joe Biden for explicitly endorsing dangerous, experimental gender transitions for children during his ABC News town hall.

In response to a question from a mother with a child who identifies as transgender, Biden explained his radical view on the issue:

The idea that an eight-year-old child, or a ten-year-old child, decides, you know, ‘I decided I want to be transgender, that’s what I think I’d like to be, it’d make my life a lot easier.’ There should be zero discrimination [emphasis added] … I promise you, there is no reason to suggest that there should be any right denied your [transgender] daughter… that your other daughter has a right to be and do.

In response, Frank Cannon, president of APP, released the following statement:

There’s no escaping it. Tonight, Joe Biden explicitly endorsed sex changes for children as young as eight years old. To say this is out of step with the American people is a tremendous understatement. And for tens of millions of pro-family voters, it will be a total disqualifier.

In Joe Biden’s view, a child too young to go see an Avengers film can decide to have his or her body permanently altered through surgery and chemical injections. Second or third graders are too young to comprehend the basics of human sexuality, let alone make such irreversible decisions. To mutilate children in such a way is a form of child abuse, and Americans, by a huge margin, don’t believe children this young should undergo such procedures.

In July, APP partnered with SPRY Strategies to conduct polling in ten presidential and Senate battleground states on a wide range of issues. One of the questions was, “Should children who say they identify as transgender be allowed to undergo physical sex change surgeries or chemical treatments while they are under the age of 18?”

Most voters opposed the idea:
