Abigail Martinez’s daughter Yaeli was in high school when she started struggling with transgenderism. Her California school affirmed Yaeli’s struggle with her gender ideology and supported her taking steps to transition. 

Martinez tried her best to support her daughter, knowing that “changing” genders ultimately would not make her teenager happy. But because Martinez was not completely onboard with her daughter taking steps to transition, Martinez lost custody of her daughter. 

Martinez was allowed to visit her daughter for one hour a week. Yaeli changed her name to Andrew and began taking cross-sex hormones. But the mother said during an event at The Heritage Foundation on Monday that her daughter was still struggling with depression. 

In September 2019, Martinez received the worst phone call any parent can ever imagine. Her daughter had taken her own life, standing in front of an oncoming train. 

On today’s edition of “Problematic Women,” we tell Martinez’s story, and explain why the transgender agenda is so harmful to women and girls. 

Also on today’s show, we explain how gas prices have reached a record high, and why the Biden administration must invest in American energy independence now. And as always, we crown our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”
