Overture 12, passed by the 50th General Assembly, authorized GA Moderator Fred Greco to appoint a commission to draft “a humble petition” to government officials regarding the protection of minor children from the damages of gender reassignment surgery and medical treatment. The commission has now completed its work, and Stated Clerk Bryan Chapell’s office will send the petition to the federal officials designated in the overture. 

Because Overture 12 also urged presbytery clerks to send the petition to state and provincial government officials, Chapell sent an electronic copy of the petition to presbytery clerks to transmit to local governors, leaders of the majority and minority parties of state or provincial legislatures, and the chief justice of the state or provincial Supreme Court.
