UK Government: Urge the US not to pass HB2796 and offer asylum to trans/intersex people.
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
The US Congress plans to introduce a bill, HB2796, which will remove any existing protection from trans and intersex people. It will require genetic testing and registering on a vast scale and force people to be assigned genders based on chromosomal sex (despite the fact this in itself goes beyond XX and XY). It is a blatant attempt to allow further laws to come into place which discriminate against the already severely marginalised group of trans people. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DE4Znz4UwAAWYDY.jpg
The images show actual text from the act. This is not scaremongering. This is a real proposal to strip a people group of their rights, and can only have the aim of inflicting oppression and suffering.
We thus ask Alan Duncan MP, the Foreign Office Minister with responsibility for the Americas, and Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, the Foreign Office Minister with responsibility for human rights, under the oversight of Boris Johnson MP, to immediately call upon the USA to stop this bill, and any like it.
We also ask that they prepare the UK to welcome trans and intersex refugees as asylum seekers, making the necessary legal and logistical preparations, if this bill is to pass, to show Britain's commitment to human rights in the 21st Century and our unwillingness to accept actions akin to ethnic cleansing.
