Hi all! I have a question.
So, at my Catholic university, our Amnesty International charter was holding petitions for human rights. Most of them, noncontroversial, at least in my eyes. One however, was involving a transgendered person (born a female, identifies as a male) being forced to undergo a sex change operation and become sterilized in order to “have their gender legally recognized.” I thought forced sterilizations were horrendous, so I signed the petition. However, the one part I had a problem with was that the template was that it seemed to advocate for this “gender ideology,” although primarily being involved with removing forced sterilizations. It even stated, “He should not have to undergo invasive treatments to be recognized for who he is.” Was I wrong to sign this petition or can my conscience be at peace?
