Women’s rights and parental rights activists gathered on the steps of California’s capitol Monday to announce a statewide ballot initiative to ban child sex change surgeries.

Jonathan Zachreson, founder of Students First California, a parental rights activist group and Erin Friday, lawyer and parental rights advocate, also announced two other statewide ballot initiatives in addition to the child sex change ban alongside other prominent activists. The initiatives would ban child sex change surgeries and puberty blockers for children who do not have any sort of diseases that would cause such procedures to be necessary, ban biological men from women’s sports and bathrooms and require schools to inform parents if their child identifies as a gender different than their biological sex, according to video of the event.

“Is gender affirmative care lifesaving or life-ending? I’ll tell you it’s life ending,” Friday said. “As for schools, schools do not replace the parent. This legislature in AB 665 said upwards to 78% of LGBTQ kids have contemplated suicide. So why on earth would you keep that secret from the parent?”

The Protect Children From Reproductive Harm Act, would ban child sex change surgeries, according to the ballot initiative. The activists announced two other initiatives as well, the School Transparency And Partnership Act and the Protect Girls Sports And Spaces Act.

“This is not bigotry. It’s biology,” female rights activist Sophia Lorey said.
“Allowing boys in girls’ sports does not create an equal playing field but instead robs these young women of these athletic aspirations,” Lorey said.  “The Protect Girls Sports And Spaces Act will once again allow for girls to achieve their athletic dream.”
The School Transparency And Partnership Act aims to ensure parents are informed when a student tells school staff that they are a gender different than their biologically assigned sex and to require parental notification when transitioning to that gender, according to the ballot initiative.
The Protect Girls’ Sports And Spaces Act, if enacted, would establish sex-segregated bathrooms and locker rooms as the law of the land in California and ban biological men from competing in women’s sports, according to the ballot initiative.

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill in June 2021 that prohibits biological males from competing in women’s sports in public schools and universities. Republican Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed legislation banning biological males from competing in women’s sports in public colleges and universities in May 2023.

“I was experimented on by Kaiser Permanente in Oakland,” detransitioner Chloe Cole said, speaking about her early experiences receiving so-called “gender-affirming” care. “You need to wake up. You need to vote for these ballot measures.” (RELATED: Yes, Doctors Are Performing Sex Change Surgeries On Kids)

The statewide initiatives would require 550,000 signatures to make it on the ballot to be voted on by the state, according to California’s ballot initiative guide.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
