VIRAL VIDEO: Montana GOP State Rep Would Rather Have Her Daughter Commit Suicide Than Transition

NBC News reports:

A recent comment by a Montana Republican state lawmaker who sponsored legislation to ban gender-affirming medical care for transgender minors has gone viral and drawn backlash online.

State Rep. Kerri Seekins-Crowe, R-Billings, suggested during a floor debate that she would rather risk her daughter dying by suicide than allow her to transition. Seekins-Crowe did not say that her daughter identified as transgender, but said she was “one of those parents who lived with a daughter who was suicidal for three years.”

“Someone once asked me, ‘Wouldn’t I just do anything to help save her?’ And I really had to think and the answer was, ‘No.’ I was not going to give into her emotional manipulation because she was incapable of making those decisions and I had to make those decisions for her,” Seekins-Crowe said.
