Multiple conservative activists in Texas inform National File that Texas Governor Greg Abbott is attempting to prevent H.B. 1399, which would ban child gender transitions – including chemical castration and genital mutilation of minors – from reaching his desk, and is pressuring Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan to prevent the bill from moving forward. A conservative activist group in Texas released a new ad slamming Phelan and Abbott for refusing to advance the legislation.
“There’s a bill in Austin to ban the gender transitioning of kids. The GOP leaders plan to allow this horrific practice to continue. Governor Abbott and House Speaker Dade Phelan want to kill the bill. By killing the bill, Abbott and Phelan would allow the butchering and chemical castration of children as young as 7 years old,” the new ad, which is currently airing on Texas radio explains. National File obtained a video version of the ad this morning.

“Even the Ag Commissioner Sid Miller knows this bill has got to get through,” the narrator notes, referring to a previous ad using the voice of Miller. The previous ad slammed Texas Rep. Dustin Burrows – who is in charge of the legislature’s calendar – for allegedly refusing to advance the legislation to a full vote. At press time, the legislature is still waiting for Burrows to assign a day to vote on the bill, despite it having a total of 45 sponsors.
“Folks outside of Texas can’t believe this horrific practice still continues in Texas, but it does, and Dade Phelan and Greg Abbott aren’t doing their jobs to stop it. RINO House Speaker Dade Phelan has one job: Send a bill to Greg Abbott’s desk that prevents chemical castration, and protects our kids from crazy doctors and parents. Stop this evil practice of permanently mutilating our kids.”
Conservative activists in Texas have informed National File that Abbott is pressuring the legislature to stall the bill and keep it from coming to a vote before the end of the 2021 legislative session to appease large, politically left wing corporations who have come to Texas in recent years. Previously, former U.S. House candidate Chris Ekstrom told National File that “Abbott’s woke corporate cronies have decreed that we can’t be Texas anymore, and no one’s taken more money from them than Greg Abbott, no one in the country,” said Ekstrom. “Not even Joe Biden.”
Similarly, Abbott is reportedly pressuring a different state legislator to stall legislation that would make it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees based on their COVID-19 vaccination status. Without the bill signed into law, a Texas nurse claims she was fired for her refusal to get the vaccine, even though she has recently tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies that suggest she is currently naturally immunized from the disease.
