#LetParentsCare

Join us in saying “no” to the state eroding parental rights

Imagine being separated, by court order, from your teenage daughter so she can take life-altering drugs for her gender “transition”? This is happening in Switzerland right now.

Meet these brave parents punished for saying “no” to the “social transitioning” of their daughter. Hear their compelling story firsthand:

These parents are living every parent’s worst nightmare.

A young girl expressed gender confusion just before turning 14.

Her parents sought mental health care for her, rather than following the advice of a local public hospital to put their vulnerable daughter on life-altering puberty blockers. During this time, her school began to “socially transition” her, referring to her as a boy against the wishes of her parents.

The school and the hospital have worked in conjunction with a trans-activist organization and the state child welfare agency to push towards the girl’s for the girl’s social, legal and, potentially, physical “transition” by way of dangerous medical interventions.

For seeking to protect their daughter from the irreversible harm that these interventions may entail, the parents have been accused of “abuse”.

They have had their daughter ripped away from them simply for trying to protect her.

Switzerland must act now to restore this child to her parents and address the egregious overstepping on the part of the school, hospital, and child welfare agency that allowed this nightmare scenario to unfold.

I was surprised that this would happen in Switzerland, but then Geneva is alas different. One of my sons was given puberty blockers in 2015 for a year behind my back; but I was able to stop it quite easily, maybe because the replacement doctor shared my view. This was in Helsinki. Dont give up!

As parents, we would do anything to protect our children from harm. We want the best for our kids. We love them and want to raise them to be honest, kind, and self-confident adults—both our daughter and our son, each in their own way. But right now, our daughter is still a minor, and she rightfully belongs in our home where we can help her navigate through life’s struggles in a way that is best for her long-term health and happiness. I can’t believe we live in a society where your child can be taken away from you simply for trying to protect her.

FAQ

  • In most circumstances, it is parents who love and know their children best. That is certainly the case for this family who wants what is best for their daughter.
    • At a time when the daughter needed her parents the most, Geneva cantonal youth welfare authorities cooperated to block this girl from the love and protection of her parents. No child should be separated from caring parents.
    • No parents should have to worry about their child being indoctrinated at school, especially to the point of being ripped away from them, placed in a shelter, and pushed toward dangerous medical interventions.

    Increasingly around the world we see cases and legislative proposals to nullify parental rights in the context of transgender issues. Simultaneously, many countries are moving away from trans affirmative processes and developing more critical responses to gender dysphoria. And it is increasingly impossible to ignore that science discredits trans-ideology.  

    If, in a modern democratic society like Switzerland, parents can lose their children to the state simply for upholding their biological reality, no one is safe. We must act now to defend the rights of parents to care of their children. 

    ADF International supports the legal defence of the parents, who are being represented by Swiss lawyer, Dr. Marc Bellon.

    As international human rights experts, ADF International is committed to protecting the rights of parents and the well-being of children in accordance with both international and national law.
