Dr. Steven Hotze’s Testimony in Favor of HB 1686 by Oliverson on Banning Transgender Treatment for Children

House Public Health Committee

The following are the remarks made by Dr. Steven Hotze before the Texas House Public Health Committee on Monday, March 27. Katy Christian Magazine obtained the remarks and decided to publish them in support of Dr. Hotze’s strong defense in protecting Texas children from the barbaric practice of gender modification surgery.

My name is Dr. Steven Hotze from Houston, Texas, CEO of the Hotze Health & Wellness Center.

Madam Chairwoman and Committee Members, I am supporting House Bill 1686 because it will protect children from abuse by the transgender medical industry and the pedophiles who sexualize children, in order to groom them to participate in their perverted, immoral lifestyle.

A pervert is one who participates in obscene sexual practices. A pedophile is an adult pervert who sexualizes children, including doctors who sexualize children for a profit, performing sex mutilation surgery on them.

These pedophiles are now using transgender sex change drugs and sex mutilation surgery on children to cosmetically create the illusion of a sex change.

General Paxton and Governor Abbott agree that this is child abuse and child abuse is a criminal offense.

It is immoral to destroy the normal physical development of a child. These treatments permanently damage the reproductive organs before the child has the legal capacity to consent. This violates the child’s constitutional right to procreate. That is why it is imperative that you pass legislation to protect them.

God created two genders, two sexes, male and female. There are stallions and mares, bulls and heifers, roosters and hens, men and women. This is a biological fact. The idea that a man can claim to be a woman, or vice versa, is as absurd as saying a bull can become a heifer. It is a perversion of the God-given natural order. At birth, you are either a female, XX, or a male, XY. You cannot change your sex chromosomes. This is biology 101. To say otherwise is a lie.

Doctors who perform these treatments should have their medical licenses revoked.

Jesus stated that, “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matthew 18:6)

God says in Isaiah, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter, who justify the wicked and take away the rights of those who do right.” (Isaiah 5:20,23)

Representatives, you have the very serious responsibility, before God, to protect the children from the perverted transgender, pedophilia movement. I am confident that you will faithfully discharge your duty.
