‘Transgender’ people sue Montana over law limiting birth-certificate changes

When a person is born, you record where they’re born, you record their weight, you record their sex,’ state Sen. Carl Glimm responded, ‘and that’s important information to document.’

Psalms 139

1 O יהוה (Yahweh,Elohim,God) , You have searched me And know me.
2 You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought from afar.
3 You sift my path and my lying down, And know well all my ways.
4 For there is not a word on my tongue, But see, O יהוה (Yahweh,Elohim,God) , You know it all!
5 You have closed me in, behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me –
6 Knowledge too wondrous for me, It is high, I am unable to reach it.
7 Where would I go from Your Spirit? Or where would I flee from Your face?
8 If I go up into the heavens, You are there; If I make my bed in She’ol, see, You are there.
9 I take the wings of the morning, I dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 There, too, Your hand would lead me, And Your right hand hold me.
11 If I say, “Darkness shall cover me,” Then night would be light to me;
12 Even darkness is not dark for You, But night shines as the day – As is darkness, so is light.
13 For You, You possessed my kidneys, You have covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I give thanks to You, For I am awesomely and wondrously made! Wondrous are Your works, And my being knows it well.
15 My bones were not concealed from You, When I was shaped in a hidden place, Knit together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body. And in Your book all of them were written, The days they were formed, While none was among them.

17 And how precious are Your thoughts to me, O Ěl! How great has been the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, They would be more than the sand; When I wake up, I am still with You.
19 Oh, that You would kill· the wrong, O Eloah! Depart from me, therefore, men of bloodshed!
20 They speak against You wickedly. Bring Your enemies to naught!
21 O יהוה, do I not hate them, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 With a complete hatred I hate them; They have become my enemies.
23 Search me, O Ěl, and know my heart; Try me, and know my thoughts;
24 And see if an idolatrous way is in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.

MISSOULA, Montana, July 20, 2021 (LifeSiteNews)— Two “transgender” people represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit challenging Montana’s new law restricting the ability of “trans” people to change their birth certificates in accordance with their chosen “gender identities.” 

Under Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte’s Senate Bill 280, a “transgender” person must provide a court order with proof of genital surgery to the Department of Public Health and Human Services in order to change the birth sex on the birth certificate. 

Amelia Marquez, a biological male, and “John Doe,” a biological female, claim that the surgery required by the new law is too challenging for some and wrongly requires disclosure of personal information. 

According to the complaint, Marquez, 27, has identified and lived as a female for much of his adulthood and wishes to “correct” his Montana birth certificate to say that he was born female. Marquez has taken female hormones, but is not able to pay for and doesn’t wish to undergo genital surgery. He “lives in fear of having to present [his] birth certificate to someone who may respond negatively or even violently… Marquez is typically perceived as female, so anytime [he] is forced to present an identity document that … identifies [him] as male, [he] is forced to ‘out’ [himself] as transgender.”

The woman, 22, identifying as John Doe in the complaint “has expressed [her] gender in a traditionally male manner and has lived and identified fully as a male for the last year and a half. [She] has taken hormone therapy for two years and completed masculinizing chest reconstruction surgery,” but doesn’t wish to undergo genital surgery in order to change her birth certificate. She “would like to correct the sex designation on [her] birth certificate to accurately reflect [her] male gender identity but does not wish to be forced to publicly share in court private information and records regarding [her] transgender status, medical treatment and [her] anatomy.” 

The plaintiffs claim that the act is “unconstitutional’ and “was created to marginalize transgender people,” and that in a “free, society the state has no role to play” regarding “gender-affirming surgeries.” 

The plaintiffs’ appeal to Article II, Section 4 of the Montana Constitution states, “No person shall be denied the equal protection of laws.” The plaintiffs claim the law violates this section because it “denies Plaintiffs equal protection of the laws on the basis of their of their gender identity and sex. It discriminates on the basis of gender identity, which is also a form of discrimination on the basis of sex.” 

The plaintiffs also appeal to the due-process clause of Article II, Section 17 that provides that “no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law,” and Article II, Section 10, which states that individual privacy “shall not be infringed without the showing of a compelling state interest.” 

LGBTQ Nation quoted Republican state Sen. Carl Glimm, who sponsored the new law, as defending it on the grounds that “birth certificates are an item of fact … When a person is born, you record where they’re born, you record their weight, you record their sex. And that’s important information to document.” 

SB 280 is the latest in a series of laws Montana recently enacted to push back on the radical “transgender” movement in the state. House Bill 112 states that participation in school sports at all levels must be based on biological sex. Senate Bill 99 requires schools to notify parents of sex education classes and their right to opt children out of them, and publicly release all sex-ed materials, as well as bars abortion-involved entities from providing sex-ed instruction or resources.
