Whistleblower Exposes Harm to Children Committed by “Transgender Clinics” and Medical Facilities
Mutilating drugs and surgeries are irreversibly damaging
Washington, D.C. – Today, a former youth transgender clinic case manager in St. Louis revealed the horrifying truth taking place at “transgender clinics” and medical care facilities around the country. Jamie Reed, a self-described “queer woman” and a liberal, told her story to The Free Press, saying, “I Thought I Was Saving Trans Kids. Now I’m Blowing the Whistle.”
Reed, who worked at The Washington University Transgender Clinic at St. Louis Children’s Medical Hospital, explains that the treatment she saw there was “morally and medically appalling.” She said that there were few protocols for treating patients and that they had a variety of disorders, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, eating disorders, obesity, and autism. Yet, doctors pushed treatments that result in “life-altering consequences including sterility.”
“This is the wake-up call America needs that no politician or responsible media outlet can ignore,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization. “These same health-destroying practices are happening in children’s hospitals across the country and are the reason so many state legislatures are working to block the use of mutilating drugs and surgeries ‘permanently harming’ vulnerable youth. Reed’s first-hand account is every reason to shut down the transactivism infecting our country peddled by the American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, Big Pharma, corporate America, and the Biden Administration. Now is the time for courage, like Ms. Reed has displayed, to challenge this madness.”
In his State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Biden called on Congress to pass the Equality Act “to ensure LGBTQ Americans, especially transgender young people, can live with safety and dignity.”
“There is nothing safe or dignified about disfiguring and mutilating children’s bodies,” says Nance. “Even more disturbing in Reed’s story is that this ‘transitioning’ trend is a social contagion and doctors know it. They also know that children can’t make decisions about medical care at such ages and any parent who pushes this on their child should be prosecuted for child abuse.”
Concerned Women for America is challenging that the “safety and dignity” of youth with gender dysphoria is the outcome of medical activism embracing gender ideology and the rabid promotion of transgenderism in our culture through social media, drag shows, school curriculum, secret gender support plans, and pediatric gender clinics. And this brave whistleblower makes the case.
