United States Congressman Jeff Van Drew, R-2 has responded to New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy potentially reconsidering the state of New Jersey teaching gender identity and sexual orientation to 2nd and 3rd graders.

Here is Van Drew’s public statement as follows:

“It is imperative that the public and New Jersey legislators continue to push back against these radical policies aimed to indoctrinate our youth,” said Van Drew.

Legislation I am putting forward, the My Child, My Choice Act, will guarantee that no federal taxpayer dollars will be allocated to schools that are instructing students on 'gender identity' and promoting children to use whichever bathroom they want based on how they feel.

These lesson plans being proposed by school districts have no place in elementary education. We must continue to put pressure on Governor Murphy and the state of New Jersey in order to protect our nation's children and ensure that children feel safe and secure when they go to school,” said Van Drew.
