In a recent interview with NPR, a well-known official at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services told the liberal news out there is “no argument” among medical professionals about the “value and the importance” of what he calls “gender-affirming care."
An example of such “care” is removing the breasts of a mentally confused girl, who feels like a boy trapped in a girl’s body.
The federal official who made that claim is Dr. "Rachel" Levine, who has become familiar to the America public because “Rachel” is a dress-wearing biological man, Richard, who identifies as a woman.
To make his point, or to at least attempt to do so, Levine named a lengthy list of medical professionals -- pediatricians pediatric endocrinologists, adolescent medicine physicians, adolescent psychiatrists – whom he insisted agree with his claim.
"I frankly find it quite alarming. It is a false claim,” responds Jeffrey J. Barrows, an OB/GYN who is senior vice president of bioethics and public policy for Christian Medical & Dental Associations. "There is a great deal of argument among health care professionals, of all the specialties cited, about the value and importance of gender-affirming care."
In industries from the media to medicine, and sports to academia, there is a bullying demand to affirm and defend transgenderism even if innocent children are being harmed in the process.
In the NPR interview, for example, the public witnessed a gender-confused man with enormous power at HHS make the claim to a taxpayer-funded media outlet that agrees with him, and there is predictably no room to disagree within HHS and the newsroom at NPR.
According to Barrows, the honest statement to make is there is no agreement.
"The reason for that is that gender-affirming care is an ideology," says Barrows. "It is not based on science, (and) it carries also significant proven health risks for those that go through gender-affirming care."
