Will gender change since the age of 14 be okay’d in Ukraine?
The VR registered a bill that allows adolescents who reach 14 years to change gender without parental consent.
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine registered Bill No. 2684 “On Amending the Implementation of the Adolescents' Rights in the Health Care Sector”, which allows children from the age of 14 to change their gender without parental consent. The corresponding bill was published on the website of the Verkhovna Rada.
The bill, initiated by deputy of the “Servant of the People” faction Lada Bulakh, proposes to introduce the concept of “teenager” into the legislation and provide teenagers with full autonomy with respect to their parents in decisions regarding any kind of medical care.
In particular, in the MP’s opinion, the first part of article 32 of the Civil Code of Ukraine needs to be supplemented with a new paragraph 5, according to which a teenager, upon reaching 14 years of age, has the right to “independently conclude and execute transactions related to the provision of medical services.”
In turn, according to experts, this provision will allow adolescents to refuse treatment for alcoholism, drug addiction and other dangerous addictions or diseases, as well as change their gender without parental consent.
Currently, the parliamentary committee on humanitarian and information policy has sent the bill for revision.
Earlier, the UOJ wrote that, according to Archpriest Gennady Batenko, gender education lessons in schools and kindergartens destroy the purity of children's souls and are aimed to molest children.
