PROVIDENCE, RI – Rhode Island enacted a law which prohibits parents from seeking psychological help for their gender dysphoric children.
Last year, the State of Rhode Island made it illegal for a licensed medical professional to counsel a child away from the desire to change his/her gender identity, yet it remains legal to inject that same child with hormone blockers and cross-sex hormones.
College of Pediatricians Calls Transgender Ideology ‘Child Abuse’
The American College of Pediatricians warns educators and legislators that “a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex” is dangerous for children.
In a strongly worded statement issued today, the professional association of pediatricians says “a person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking.” It describes such thinking as problem that exists in the mind and not the body and “it should be treated as such.”
NOW, you tell me how a “Prepubescent Child” is going to KNOW, much less ASK, FOR or ABOUT puberty blockers.
WE THE PEOPLE have allowed PEDOPHILES to not only enact laws that make it impossible to raise Children as was intended, but also to Parent Children and pass along their AntiChild, homosexual agenda. Both of these are no less than FELONY CHILD ABUSE.
“Pediatrician: ‘Transgender’ ideology has created widespread Child Abuse.”
“Transgender ideology is not just infecting our laws. It is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us — CHILDREN!”
“The fact that in normal life and in psychiatry, anyone who “consistently and persistently insists” on anything else contrary to physical reality is considered either confused or delusional.”
Dr. Michelle Cretella, MD, FCP, president of the American College of Pediatricians, is a prominent expert in children’s health who has battled against the relentless promotion of transgender ideology as it impacts kids.
“The active promotion of transgenderism has resulted in massive uncontrolled and unconsented experimentation upon children and adolescents,” Cretella warned. “This is child abuse.”
Van Buren man sentenced to life for
Child Sex Abuse
PARIS, AR – Clarence C. Garretson will spend the rest of his life in federal prison for a series of sexual abuse crimes committed on children under this care as a foster parent for the Arkansas Department of Human Services.
For 18 years, Garretson and his wife, Lisa Garretson, hosted 35 children. Fourteen of those children who were placed at their home for protection against abuse and neglect became victims of sexual abuse.
Chief Judge P.K. Holmes III imposed the life sentence on Garretson, 66, Wednesday in the U.S. District Court of Western Arkansas for his conviction on one count of transporting a minor in interstate commerce with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
Garretson was also sentenced to a term of 15 years imprisonment each on four counts of transporting minors in interstate commerce with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, with those terms to run concurrently with the life sentence.
More than 45 people attended the sentencing of the Van Buren man who pleaded guilty in October to five of the 11 sexual abuse charges that occurred over the course of nearly two decades. With a “rider waiver” from C&T Trucking Co. in Van Buren so a minor could accompany him on a trip Garretson took a 10-year-old girl in 2014 on a trip and raped her, according to court documents.
“What occurred was under the guise of being a foster parent and adoptive parent he committed torture and sexual assault when the children were looking for a place of safety,” Holmes said. “It was an extreme failure on DHS’s part and further victimized the children with the most horrific criminal acts.”
Holmes said he recognized the difficulty for DHS in dealing with deception, but pointed out a female victim had told DHS on three occasions she had been sexually abused beginning when she was 11.
Several of Garretson’s victims, both adopted children and former foster children, read impact statements at the sentencing hearing Wednesday. Each voiced their contempt for Garretson’s use of intimidation to control them and the psychological repercussions they continue to experience as a result of the abuse: Anxiety, lack of self-esteem, nightmares, alcohol and drug abuse, trust issues with males or authority figures and fear of people in general.
“It’s a hurt you can never forget,” a female victim said.
One of Garretson’s victims said he had threatened to kill her younger brother if she exposed the sexual abuse.
“I felt lost, confused, alone, bullied, mad, sad, angry,” a woman who had been abused by Garretson said. “The truth is Arkansas DHS put me in the hands of a monster. Nothing can be done to change that, but he can rot in a federal prison for the rest of his life. There is no excuse to abuse a child.”
A male victim adopted by the Garretsons said in his statement that the investigation into his adoptive parents exposed them as “hypocrites” and he is regaining his self-confidence through therapy.
“Don’t let this dictate your life,” he said to the other sexual abuse victims. “This is the beginning of a new life.”
Concerning the defendant’s wife, the judge said “if she didn’t know she should have. … It’s such a sad case.”
In 1998, Garretson and his wife were approved by DHS to operate a foster home and later to become an adoptive home.
The FBI special agent learned DHS had received a report in 2002 from a foster child then living in the home that she had been sexually assaulted by Garretson. Based on that information, the agent began locating children who had been in foster care at the Garretson residence.
A second minor interviewed in June 2016 was a foster child in the Garretson home from 2000 to 2004, which led to another Class C felony rape charge for Garretson. At the time of the offense, the girl was over 13 years of age but less than 18.
In 1999, a boy and his two older sisters were sent to the Garretson home by DHS. They were legally adopted by the Garretsons in 2001. The boy was 11 in 2001 when he went out on a long-distance trip with Garretson and was sexually assaulted. This happened on multiple trips during summer vacation from school in 2002 and 2003.
Also in 1999, DHS placed a fifth victim and her two siblings in the Garretson home and she remained there until 2004. The minor was interviewed by an FBI special agent in July 2016 and disclosed she was sexually assaulted by Garretson on an over-the-road trip to California during the summer of 2000 when she was 13 years old.
Then The Daughter The Convicted Pedophile Raped Speaks Up
It was 1996 when police arrested Jim and Justine and charged them with prolonged sexual abuse and exploitation of their 13-year-old daughter, Amanda.
At the time, Jim claimed that he didn’t think he was doing any harm to his daughter, and that in those days, child molestation was considered “something people joke about” — citing comic book “Chester The Molester” as supposed cultural evidence of this.
But the repercussions of that abuse — which began when his daughter was just 11 — would haunt Amanda into her adulthood, sending her life sideways as she attempted to self-medicate and escape the pain.
Now, 20 years later, Amanda and her biological parents meet again — Amanda for an apology, her parents (particularly her father) forgiveness.
Appearing on Wednesday’s episode of “Dr. Phil,” Amanda says her parents would routinely photograph her in “provocative” situations and video tape her performing various sexual acts— sometimes with her father — with the plan to sell the tapes across the world.
She tells Dr. Phil: “Jim told me with the money we could make, I could go to college”
Amanda adds that she never saw any of her supposed earnings. Her mother, on stage with Amanda already, begins weeping, presumably overwhelmed with guilt and regret at her part in the abuse.
Then Dr. Phil brings out Amanda’s father. The audience is silent as he walks out, the tension at its peak.
Amanda starts in on Jim, at first tenuously, seeming to barely contain her rage:
“Where to begin?…. How could you?”
Amanda begins to ask questions directly to her father — reluctantly, at first — saying she’s “dreamed of this moment,” but adding:
“Truthfully I would have preferred if you had been six feet under.”
Jim says to Amanda as she stares at him in anger and disbelief that he’s ashamed that he only remembers abusing Amanda four or five times when it was obviously a regular routine in the family.
Looking straight at his daughter, he says:
“It should have been burned into my memory as much as it was into yours.”
As Amanda recounts how her life spiraled out of control into adulthood — addiction, work as a topless dancer, even the creation of an alter ego to escape the pain she was experiencing — it’s clear that the memories left significant scars with lasting impact.
But the most chilling moments in the episode come from a one-on-one interview with Jim taped earlier, in which the former convict claims that during the early 1990’s, “sexually abusing children were things that people winked and joked about.”
Unbelievably, he goes on to complain that he’d been “exploited, taken advantage of [and] beaten up,” in prison. He also protested that he had never been aroused by his daughter, but rather was interested in the “mechanics.”
But Dr. Phil doesn’t pull punches responding to claims that Jim didn’t know what he was doing to his daughter, saying directly to Amanda:
“To suggest that he was in an environment where parents didn’t know it wasn’t okay to rape their children is insulting your intelligence, it’s insulting to your experience, it is a complete insult to this entire experience between him and you. Now he’s either that naive, or he’s just thumbing his nose at you because that is an idiotic statement.”

The New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault, which collects statistics nationally, reports that 46% of children who are sexually abused are the victims of family members.
It also reports that 61% of American rape victims are raped before the age of 18, and unbelievable 29% of all rapes occurred before the victim was 11.
Missouri – The organization, Bikers Against Child Abuse is calling the decision to release admitted child rapist Aaron Fisher, a failure of the justice system.
The nationwide organization escorts abused children to court to face their victims, and they even pay for therapy if needed.
ABC 17 News talked to two local members from the Jefferson City area who say Judge Pat Joyce failed the victims, “absolute disbelief that there could be such a failure of this child”, Ratchet said.
For their security, the two men we interviewed go by the names Ratchet and Stache.
“Basically we are a bunch of volunteers who are tired of seeing kids go through this. We take calls from prosecuting attorneys, victim advocates, even the parent of an abused child can contact our organization, and if that child has to go through court or needs therapy, then we get involved in that child’s life”, Ratchet told ABC 17 News.
This past weekend their organization was devastated to hear the news that a child rapist walking the same streets as his victims, “After someone admits to something this heinous, and they have the testimony that he admitted to it, and then slowly but surely, the process gets skewed. Somebody starts asking for delays and continuances, we see this all the time with defense attorneys, it’s classic. They do it for a multitude of reasons. They hope the child forgets what the guy looks like, or they forget some details of the case. This one just drug on way to long. And like I’ve said, now there is a six-year-old child out there that has to live with these memories, and now not only is the child out there but so is his abuser, or her abuser”, Ratchet said.
