Abby Martinez knows firsthand how gender ideology can negatively affect, and even end, a young life. 

Martinez’s daughter Yaeli began taking cross-sex hormones in high school and changed her name to Andrew.

When Martinez raised concerns about the path her teen daughter was on, she lost custody of Yaeli to the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. 

Yaeli later took her own life at age 19.

“I wish the system, instead of spending millions of dollars on these kids, having them in foster care, [would instead] support us as a parent and give us the tools that we need,” Martinez says. 

Martinez joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to talk about what happened next and how the lives of her whole family have been changed forever by a transgender movement that promotes “sex change” for children, teens, and young adults.
