Time Running Out for Father Trying to Stop Medical Castration of 10-Year-Old Son

Time is rapidly running out for a Dallas father who is seeking to block the medical castration of his 10-year-old son as part of a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife. 

Jeffrey Younger told The Epoch Times that he filed an emergency stay with the Texas Supreme Court on December 16th to prevent his ex-wife from his twin sons James and Jude out of Texas. 

“I had to go to the Supreme Court directly,” he said. “Welcome to what it takes to be a father in the modern world today. All I want to do is raise my son as a boy, and this is what it takes.”

On December 20th, he received an email saying that his ex-wife, a former pediatrician named Anne Georgulas, had already moved the two boys out of Texas and to Los Angeles County, California. Younger had previously driven to the boys’ home in Texas to check if they still lived there so he could send them Christmas gifts.

"The house was empty was dark," he recalled. "All the security cameras had been removed. There was no furniture in the house that I could see. So I’m pretty sure she moved away before that, but just notified me until later."

The Texas Supreme Court has agreed to take the case, but time is fast running out as California's Senate Bill 107, a so-called transgender sanctuary law that would end his protection under Texas law, will go into effect on January 1st. In Texas, sexually transitioning children is illegal and considered a form of child abuse.

The bill states that it will “prohibit the enforcement of an order based on another state’s law authorizing a child to be removed from their parent or guardian based on that parent or guardian allowing their child to receive gender-affirming health care or gender-affirming mental health care.”

Younger alleges that his ex-wife groomed his son by dressing him as a girl from the age of two, while Georgulas claims that her son identifies as a female named Luna. Younger says his son is comfortable with his identity as a boy and does not wish to transition. 

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has previously intervened on behalf of Younger by urging the courts to grant his custody petition. “The need for relief, in this case, is particularly acute because the question presented here is both of constitutional significance and likely to recur,” he wrote at the time.

However, Dallas District Judge Mary Brown, a left-wing Democrat serving on the Texas 301st District Court bench, ruled in September that Georgulas had the right to move her children anywhere in the United States.

The case continues.
