Among those speaking at the event was Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (a nephew of former US president John F. Kennedy), who, as CNN reports, likened vaccine mandates in the US to Nazi Germany.“I believe nobody should ever be forced to inject their body with anything, against their will,” Lilly wrote in her post, citing a range of threats and consequences that she believes those refusing the vaccine are subject to.“This is not the way.

This is not safe. This is not healthy. This is not love. I understand the world is in fear, but I don’t believe that answering fear with force will fix our problems.

Abbott directs DFPS to investigate "abusive" gender-transitioning procedures on Texas children
AUSTIN, Texas - Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has directed the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) to investigate reported instances of "abusive gender-transitioning procedures" done on Texas children.Abbott sent a letter to DFPS earlier this week saying the law "imposes a duty on DFPS to investigate the parents of children subjected to gender-transitioning procedures, and on other state agencies to investigate licensed facilities where such procedures may occur."The letter comes after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released a formal opinion concluding that "performing certain ‘sex-change' procedures on children, and prescribing puberty-blockers to them, is 'child abuse’ under Texas law."Abbott's letter also states that Texas law imposes reporting requirements on licensed professionals with direct contact with children, including doctors, nurses, and teachers, and criminal penalties for failing to report abuse. In August 2021, Abbott had previously directed DFPS to issue a determination on whether gender reassignment surgery constituted as child abuse.In a letter to the governor, Commissioner Jaime Masters determined that "genital mutation of a child through reassignment surgery" constitutes child abuse because it may cause "a genuine threat of substantial harm from physical injury to the child"."Genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse," reads Commissioner Masters' letter.
