    When you think about the common procedure of getting a contraceptive implant, it’s not often associated with open-heart surgery, but for one young Victorian woman, this is an uncomfortable reality. Cloe Westerway, aged 22, underwent a standard routine procedure to have an Implanon inserted two years ago in a women’s health clinic, but in the following days, things started to take a turn. Cloe began experiencing heart palpitations, excessive sweating and heartburn symptoms and immediately knew something wasn’t quite right. When the doctors tried to remove the implant, there was one problem: they couldn’t find it, with subsequent scans revealing...

    A third of trans children treated with puberty blockers had their mental health deteriorate while on the medication, a new analysis of a landmark study reveals. The original study found that 44 children, aged 12 to 15, who took the controversial drugs experienced no change — good or bad — to their mental health. This report, produced by experts from the NHS's Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) at Tavistock and University College London Hospitals (UCLH) in 2021 eventually led to a lowering of the age children could access puberty blockers. But a fresh analysis of the data used in the...

    A woman who surgically transitioned as a teenager into a transgender male is suing the doctors who performed a double mastectomy on her. Luka Hein, a woman from Minnesota who is now 21, had a double mastectomy performed on her when she was 16 years old at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, reported. She filed a lawsuit last Wednesday against the doctors, alleging malpractice and seeking financial damages. The University of Nebraska Medical Center told Just the News on Monday that it "will not comment on pending litigation." In July 2017, Hein says she was diagnosed with gender...

It’s incredible how quickly this ideology spread into everything.From the Daily Caller:SOLAS: My Pediatrician Discharged My Kids Because I Objected To Gender IdeologyI didn’t know that asking for an exam room free from sexualization and gender ideology would cause my pediatrician to discharge my kids from her care.My now-former pediatrician installed on the wall of every exam room a “Safe Zone” rainbow triangle sticker with the words “sexual orientation,” “gender expression,” and “gender identity.” Meticulously placed in front of the exam table and at a child’s eye level,...

    Luka Hein, who is now 21 years old, is suing the doctors who allegedly rushed her into transgender surgery at the age of 16, removing both her breasts. Hein spoke with the Daily Mail, telling the outlet the surgery has left her with daily pain. They also pumped her full of hormone treatments that could possibly rob her of being a mother one day. During her teens, Hein’s parents went through a bitter divorce. A series of events after that led to doctors convincing her parents that if they didn’t push her to become transgender she would commit suicide. The...

    A Minnesota woman who has decided to detransition from a transgender male is suing the doctors who performed a double mastectomy on her when she was just 16. Luka Hein, now 21, claims she was going through a tough time emotionally as a teenager, when her parents were getting divorced and when she was being groomed online by a man from another state. As she struggled with her mental health during this time, she said she found influencers online who extolled the virtues of breast surgery and hormones. Hein then met with staff members at the University of Nebraska Medical...

    The Texas Supreme Court just upheld a state law banning so-called gender-affirming care for minors, to explosive consternation from predictable quarters. Progressive commentators portray this and similar laws passed by more than a dozen Republican — controlled state legislatures as “anti-LGBTQIA+.” In truth, the laws are aimed not at that whole bramble of capital letters, but solely at the “T.” Slamming these bans histrionically as “genocide” (four in 15,000 patients of the Tavistock Clinic or on its waiting list committed suicide between 2010 and 2020, but according to propaganda it’s up to 50 percent of trans kids who try to...

    A "horrified" hospital employee at Kaiser Permanente leaked a sex change training for diversity, equity and inclusion, which promoted the idea that a 3-year-old can be transgender. "The employee, who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of losing her job, was horrified," according to the Wednesday report from Libs of TikTok. As part of the hospital system's DEI training, medical employees were expected to watch a video with children explaining they knew they were transgender at age 3 and 4. "Many transgender people have ALWAYS known their true gender," the video said. "My name is Rose. I'm a transgender girl....

    'The real question comes down to are you OK with removing healthy body parts of a child' Activists in California from both political parties are banding together to put measures on the state ballot that would ban child sex change surgeries and ensure fairness in women’s spaces, they told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Protect Kids California filed three statewide ballot initiatives Monday, and the group leaders believe they have bipartisan support on the issues. “The media and the California legislators make it seem that it’s a Democrat versus Republican issue, but it’s not. I would say the majority of...

    One of California’s largest school districts reportedly offered financial rewards to teachers who attended a webinar with advocates who encourage children with gender dysphoria to receive cross-sex hormones or undergo body-altering surgeries. The Los Angeles Unified School District invited teachers to attend a webinar last week titled “The Wellbeing of Sexual and Gender Diverse Girls” in exchange for three Continuing Education credits and hours to use towards salary points, The Daily Wire reported. The Los Angeles Unified School District did not immediately respond to The Christian Post’s request for comment. The webinar featured Aydin Olson-Kennedy, a female licensed clinical social...

    CREDIT: Screenshot/NBC News Over the weekend we covered the heartbreaking story of a child whose medical "transition" was captured on video. One clip that was posted to X/Twitter, which is from a 2012 NBC News story, shows an 11-year-old child who was a biological boy preparing to have hormone blockers implanted. In one clip the child, whose name had been legally changed from Joseph to Josie, asks his mother, "Sometimes I think I’m a boy kinda.. Will you love me if I’m a boy?" In another, filmed at the doctor's office, shows Josie crying and clearly uncomfortable as the...

    In our age of gender mania, does anyone even remember the word tolerance, the seemingly modest request of same-sex couples some years ago? Or the Defense of Marriage Act, a statute enacted by Congress and thirty-one states to clarify that marriage could be only between a man and a woman? Official supporters included Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and …. Joe Biden. Obviously the 2015 United States Supreme Court opinion, Obergefell v. Hodges, upended these laws. That opinion discovered, 227 years after the Constitution’s ratification, that the Equal Protection clause demands acceptance of same-sex marriage, though one wonders if real acceptance...

    Buckle up, campers, because things are going to get even weirder this evening, courtesy (once again) of the folks at the American Medical Association. According to a recent report published in The Daily Mail, a representative of the AMA has suggested in the June issue of its Journal of Ethics that taxpayers could be put on the hook for a $300,000 surgery to transplant a uterus into a male patient to “subsidize” the cost of the very expensive and totally experimental surgery. And why would anyone need to do this? Two reasons. First, it could alleviate ‘psychological dissonance’ in the...

  • Number of transgender surgeries performed each year has TRIPLED across US in past three years with more than 1,200 procedures performed in patients 18 or YOUNGER annually, study shows

    Sex-change surgeries carried out across US annually have nearly tripled in recent years, a study suggests. The number of gender-affirming operations nearly tripled from 2016 to 2019 before dropping slightly in 2020, according to research published Wednesday. The increase likely reflects expanded insurance coverage for transgender care after the Obama administration and some states actively discouraged discrimination based on gender identity, lead author Dr Jason Wright of Columbia University said. The dip in 2020 can be attributed to the pandemic. About 48,000 patients underwent such surgeries during the five years studied, with about 13,000 procedures done in 2019, the peak...

Diane Ehrensaft, a self-identified "feminist" who supports a "gender revolution," is the director of mental health and chief psychologist at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital gender development center. She is also a professor at UCSF School of Medicine. The developmental and clinical psychologist specializes in pediatric "gender-affirmative care for transgender and gender-expansive patients." Her biography paged reflected that Ehrensaft focuses her research on how genders before puberty develop...

    When I was very young, I was manipulated into sex reassignment (also known as sex/gender correction or sex/gender transition) by a transsexual man in his mid-40s. For several years he gave me puberty blockers - dangerous substances that block the effects of testosterone - and hormones of the opposite sex, i.e. estrogens. Just before I turned 18, a psychologist, psychiatrist, and sexologist, after one visit, without any tests, fabricated a diagnosis of transsexualism and referred me, officially, for a sex change, which should never have happened. Currently, I have had a reversal procedure, returning to the true sex I was...

    he American Academy of Pediatrics decided to "reaffirm" its stance on pushing child gender transition operations but ordered a "systematic review" amid a growing number of states outlawing the practice. The AAP's Aug. 4 decision to "reaffirm" its green light for child gender transition procedures is under the microscope as more than 20 states have outlawed the practice and European doctors have taken the opposite approach.
