In yet another breathtaking act of ‘social engineering’ – while most of the country is rightly focused on more important issues such as COVID, the economy, health, education, drugs and family violence – the Government is prioritising a law change which will deem birth certificates meaningless, and which will continue its push of identity politics and gender confusion.
In the proposed law, birth certificates will be based on the choice of the person (self-identification); a 16-17-year-old could change their gender on their birth certificate without parental consent (similar to the proposal on puberty blockers) and potentially without a doctor’s approval; a parent can choose whether they wish to appear on the child’s birth certificate as the child’s “mother”, “father” or just “parent”; and there is no limit to the number of times you can change the gender on your birth certificate. Ironically, you can reapply to revert to the sex recorded at birth. (Perhaps the doctor or midwife did get it right after all!)
And in what is now typical fashion on any controversial social issue, the Select Committee have allowed the shortest time possible for you to have your say – 14 September. Yes – just 2 weeks away.
You’re possibly saying right now – Not another one! You’re possibly also saying – Does it really matter? It’s only a birth certificate. These issues do matter – they concern our understanding of fundamental human nature, who each of us are as male and female, and the kind of adult direction and support our children require, deserve and receive from us.
A birth certificate is a historical record based on fact – not a political tool to further an ideology. A government document SHOULD tell biological truth.
WATCH our short analysis of the proposed bill – and please – make a short submission.
Thank you for your attention to this issue.
