Joe Biden’s White House just days ago announced a full-blown, all-of-government campaign to promote transgenderism.
He promised to members of that community, “I have your back.”
But it’s worse than that.
It’s based on a problematic study.
And that doesn’t mean just that it ignored the 20-fold increase in suicide attempts by those who complete such a transition, compared to those who don’t. And it’s not just that Paul McHugh, the former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins, has confirmed that 70%-80% of those who claim gender dysphoria, if left alone, outgrow those feelings after a few years.
It’s that, according to the Washington Free Beacon, Biden is relying, in “pushing puberty blockers for ‘trans kids,’” on a “problematic study.”
Biden cited a study “from an LGBT group funded in part by a manufacturer of the controversial drugs used in gender reassignment,” the report explained.
“In statements commemorating ‘Transgender Day of Visibility,’ the White House and Department of Health and Human Services cited research from the Trevor Project to support the use of puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and sex-reassignment procedures in children seeking to change genders,” the Free Beacon explained.
However, it said two of the Trevor Project’s donors, AbbVie and Allergan, manufacture the chemicals and other products used in the medical gender transition process.
The foundations attached to each of those companies provided at least $50,000 to the project, the Free Beacon said, citing a review of tax documentation and online resources.
The movement has gained great strength under Joe Biden’s careful shepherding of the transgender agenda. His efforts to promote the body mutilation such processes involve on children come just as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott asked his state’s child welfare officials to investigate for child abuse parents that subject their kids to the chemicals, hormones, and surgeries involved.
The report noted Texas AG Ken Paxton subpoenaed AbbVie on claims it improperly promotes puberty blockers to children. The company makes Lupron, a chemical sold off-label to transgender children. And it sells Androgel, a testosterone booster used on girls, the report said, while Allergan makes other materials used in “gender reassignment” processes.
The Free Beacon said the Trevor Project study appeared in the Journal of Adolescent Health and claimed teens with access to drugs and procedures to change genders were less likely to have depression and suicidal thoughts.
But in fact a team of scientists including a doctor who participated in AbbVie’s trial wrote a letter in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism in 2019 warning the suspect treatments could cause sterility, sexual dysfunction and worse if used on children.
And the Daily Caller reported recently another study, from Stanford researchers, came out based on money donated from Pfizer and Arbor. Pfizer, which sells estradiol to be used on boys, also is a sponsor of the Human Rights Campaign, the pro-LGBT activists that Biden also cited touting treatments for children.
Dobson, founder of the James Dobson Family Institute, host of the “Family Talk” radio programs, and adviser to multiple presidents on family issues, said Biden, despite war in Europe, a lagging economy, skyrocketing inflation and a crisis at the border, has as his highest priority “to force transgenderism onto our children.”
“Last week, Biden and his administration released two agency documents designed to enable and encourage boys and girls to castrate themselves chemically and surgically while calling it ‘a form of supportive healthcare.’ This is the prequel to five ‘gender-affirming care’ regulations forthcoming this month and next.”
However, he charged Biden’s infliction of his program on children, “defies God’s natural laws and grossly breaches all ethical boundaries as it pertains to protecting the welfare of our children. Let’s call it what it really is – an outrageous and vile attack against our precious kids.”
He explained, “Both documents, one from the Office of Population Affairs, entitled ‘Gender-Affirming Care and Young People,’ and the other, ‘Gender-Affirming Care is Trauma-Informed Care,’ issued by The National Child Traumatic Stress Network use Orwellian language to explain why it is so important for parents and others to support a child’s desire to change their gender. These officials state that ‘early gender-affirming care is crucial to (the) overall health and well-being’ of a child.”
“Perhaps, worst of all, President Biden had the audacity to invoke God’s name on behalf of this wickedness. In a video statement, he addressed transgender Americans and stated, ‘Our entire administration sees you for who you are, made in the image of God, and deserving of dignity, respect, and support.’
“Of course, President Biden is correct when he quotes Genesis 1:27 and says those who experience gender dysphoria—along with all human beings—are made in the image of God. Yet, in saying this, it is ironic, in the most sickening sense, that Biden is encouraging these same young people to rebel against God’s image imprinted upon their very beings. In his failed attempt to appear holy and pious, President Biden conveniently omits the second half of the verse he quotes which says, ‘male and female He created them.’
“No one should distort the Lord’s very words in this way. President Biden would do well to remember that God will not be mocked.
Graham, just days earlier, had condemned Biden’s actions.
“This is vile. It’s one of the most wicked initiatives that we’ve seen come out of Washington. President Biden’s Democratic administration is endorsing sex-change operations and hormone treatments for children,” he charged on social media. “Mutilating bodies and removing the genitalia of children is permanent. All of their manipulated research saying that it improves mental health or increases happiness is just a lie from hell. What it really does is destroy the lives and futures of these children,” he said.
He continued, “Churches and followers of Jesus Christ must stand against this evil agenda. Politicians who support this shouldn’t be in leadership, and we need to work to get them out of office in the next election—whether they’re Republican or Democrat. Speaking of regime changes—we need one in this country. What do you think?”
