The Department of Public Health and Human Services is trying to change the rules so people can ask for their birth certificates to be changed. In order to make Montana compliant with the recommendations of the “Word Professional Association for Transgender Health,” the new rules would allow a male who thinks they’re a woman or a female who thinks they’re a man to change their birth certificate to show what they want it to show.
We urge all Montanans to submit public comment. It’s being accepted until October 20 at this email address: email@example.com.
If you can submit comment, please consider the following points:
- Something this significant should be decided by the Legislature, not bureaucrats.
- The proposed language includes no definition of transition, so it’s impossible to objectively verify.
- The proposed language removess the word sex and replaces it with gender, which is also impossible to objectively verify.
I oppose this proposal.
Correct me if I’m wrong but in nature and human being there is male and female.
When a baby is born there is either boy parts or girl parts. This gender idea is what is between the ears of those that is in this debate. I find this debate appalling.
I totally agree Shirlee. This is sick and should not be an issue in our great state.
I completely agree.
I totally agree!
I strongly oppose this proposal. Laws and their enforcement must be based on verifiable evidence in order to provide protection and justice. An individual’s sex is verifiable at birth because there physical evidence that proves the established definition of male or female. Gender is a concept that can and often changes and is without physical proof. Gender is NOT verifiable. The proposal cannot provide protection or justice. Truth is verifiable. The truth is that humans are born either male or female. this truth must stand for the protection of both males and females.
This is totally absurd. One is born male or female, created by God. This should be totally illegal to change a birth certificate. It’s a legal document.
