    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher reacted to the United Kingdom and Scandinavian nations walking back transitioning children by saying that America has tried to be so progressive, it’s actually behind the rest of the world and that the American medical establishment won’t make the same corrections other nations have because “They’re afraid.” Maher stated, “Let me add one more thing to our discussion there about rolling back some of the overexcesses in 2020…this is in the U.K., they are now pronouncing the United States as way behind. This is so, to me, symbolic of so...

    Gee, this isn't what we have been told. At least not what the MSM, the medical establishment, the President of the United States, every civil rights organization, or anybody in the Establishment has told us. You here at HotAir already knew that something like this was true, but that is because we don't shape our reporting to fit the prevailing narrative. We actually tell you the truth as best we can. Latest NIH study: kids have a 12x HIGHER rate of suicide after surgical transition.This is a scandal. We were lied to. Children died as a result. People need to...

    Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra admitted during a congressional hearing on Wednesday that hospitals with religious objections to transgender mutilation will lose federal funding. “Can you commit here today that your department will not withhold federal funding from hospitals or doctors who refuse to provide the gender-affirming care that you are, you know, mandating, if it violates their religious beliefs?” Republican Rep. Mary Miller, chairwoman of the House Education and Workforce Committee, asked Becerra. Becerra ignored the question and scolded Miller for asking it. “You’re going somewhere completely different. First, you started talking about how a doctor should...

  • Biden Admin’s Latest Health Rule Could Be ‘Backdoor’ To Force Doctors To Perform Child Sex Changes

    Despite assurances from President Joe Biden’s administration, the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) new rule for healthcare providers could end up forcing religious hospitals and doctors to perform child sex-change procedures, legal experts told the DCNF. The rule, which HHS issued on April 26 under the Affordable Care Act, bars healthcare and insurance providers who receive federal funding from denying care due to a patient’s gender identity or sexual orientation. While HHS claimed that the rule “respects” federal protections for religious freedom, legal experts told the DCNF that the rule will likely force religious healthcare providers to choose...

    Health officials sought to ’remove barriers’ like parental consent. A constitutional rights litigation firm has obtained internal emails revealing the Biden administration’s efforts to find ways around state bans on gender transition medical procedures.In February, American First Legal (AFL) filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for its alleged refusal to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in handing over communications regarding HHS Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine and transgender clinics, according to the AFL’s press release.In March 2023, the AFL began its investigation into the HHS by filing a FOIA request after...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ruled against two state-level health policies that exclude so-called “gender-affirming” treatments, teeing up potential review by the U.S. Supreme Court...Judge Roger Gregory, an appointee of Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, wrote in his majority opinion that the policies’ exclusion of surgeries such as vaginoplasties for certain diagnoses violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.“The coverage exclusions facially discriminate on the basis of sex and gender identity, and are not substantially related to an important government interest,” he said.The 8–6 decision affirmed lower court decisions against West Virginia’s...

    Eight Democrat-nominated judges shoved transgender surgery closer to becoming a constitutional right via their decision Monday in a federal appeals court. No Democrat-nominated judges voted with the six Republican-nominated judges who strenuously denounced the court’s decision, further demonstrating how transgenderism has quickly become a litmus test for ambitious progressives in the Democratic Party. The majority decision in the Fourth Circuit federal appeals court said existing constitutional rules forbidding sexual discrimination also forbid denials of transgender surgeries in state-run healthcare programs. Any denial of the surgeries cannot be enforced without first deciding if the patient is male or female by checking...

    J.K. Rowling should take a bow. She has been a tireless, vocal defender of women and kids against the tidal wave of transgender insanity. We've written about her a lot, because she's always so awesome. And while the woke Left and trans activists screamed at her, threatened her, and harassed her, she held her head high and kept speaking truth to power. So now that she's not-too-subtly taking a victory lap in the wake of the Cass Report, we are applauding her. ‘In years to come we will look back at the damage done to children with incredulity and horror.’...

    The doctor behind a landmark review of the NHS’s gender identity services for children and young people has said fears had been raised about her personal safety amid online abuse after the report’s release. Dr Hilary Cass told the Times she wished to address the “disinformation” circulating about the findings and recommendations handed down by the Cass review when it was published on 10 April. She said she had received online abuse in the wake of the report and had been advised to stop using public transport. The report said the evidence base for gender medicine in young people had...

    Tennessee and Kentucky can continue to ban gender-affirming care for young transgender people while legal challenges against those state laws proceed, federal appeals judges ruled. In a 2-1 decision by a 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel late Thursday, the majority wrote that elected lawmakers made “precise cost-benefit decisions” in instituting the bans and “did not trigger any reason for judges to second-guess them.” The laws were passed by Republican majorities in both states. “Prohibiting citizens and legislatures from offering their perspectives on high-stakes medical policies, in which compassion for the child points in both directions, is not something...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, America First Legal’s (AFL) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) unearthed new documents regarding a radical presentation and plan distributed internally by Assistant Secretary of Health “Rachel” Levine on “Measuring Sex, Gender Identity, and Sexual Orientation.” These records reveal that the Biden Administration is trying to radically change governmental data and statistics on sex in the name of “gender identity.” AFL obtained these documents through litigation against HHS to enforce a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for Assistant Secretary Levine’s communications regarding pediatric “transgender clinics,” otherwise known as the genital...

    For years, Dr Kinnon MacKinnon, like many people in the transgender community, considered the word “regret” to be taboo. MacKinnon, a 37-year-old transgender man and assistant professor of social work at York University here, thought it was offensive to talk about people who transitioned, later regretted their decision, and detransitioned. They were too few in number, he figured, and any attention they got reinforced to the public the false impression that transgender people were incapable of making sound decisions about their treatment. “This doesn’t even really happen,” MacKinnon recalled thinking as he listened to an academic presentation on detransitioners in...

    Democrat Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly vetoed several bills on Friday, including one that would protect minors from sex-change drugs and procedures, and two others related to abortion. Substitute Bill for Senate Bill 233 would have outlawed so-called “gender-affirming care” for sex-confused minors, including the use of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and mutilating surgeries. The bill also would have allowed for a cause of action against doctors who break the law and would have restricted the use of state funds for such procedures. “This divisive legislation targets a small group of Kansans by placing government mandates on them and dictating to...
  • US Supreme Court Rules Idaho Can Enforce Ban on Sex Changes for Children – Healthcare Professionals Can Face Up to 10 Years in Prison For Mutilating Kids

    The US Supreme Court on Monday ruled that Idaho can enforce its ban on sex changes for children. Healthcare professionals can face up to 10 years in prison for mutilating children or providing puberty blockers to them. In December Judge Lynn Winmill, a Clinton appointee, ruled that Idaho could not enforce the transgender ban while the lawsuit by two plaintiffs made its way through the courts. The US Supreme Court 6-3 granted an emergency request filed by Idaho’s Attorney General. Idaho previously enacted the Vulnerable Child Protection Act which protected children from dangerous puberty blockers and procedures that remove body...

    A recent study by 11 scientists with the Mayo Clinic suggests that boys who take puberty-blocking drugs could be at risk of developing atrophied testicles and long-term infertility issues, despite claims that such drugs are reversible.The study, published in March and titled "Puberty Blocker and Aging Impact on Testicular Cell States and Function," analyzed testicular tissue samples from 87 patients under age 18.Sixteen of the boys identified as girls, and nine of them took puberty blockers. Two of the nine on puberty blockers "exhibited abnormalities" in their testicles, states the study hosted on the website of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory...

(Sangiao Photography/Shutterstock)Fresh off the heels of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics announcing that it would not allow transgender-identified men to compete in women’s athletic events in any of its association’s 239 small private schools, a landmark study was released on Wednesday that defies the hysterical warning that if gender dysphoric adolescents don’t receive “gender-affirming care,” they will kill themselves.The new study from British pediatrician Dr. Hilary...

The leaked documents and video reveal “widespread medical malpractice on children and vulnerable adults,” according to a 241-page report authored and published by Michael Shellenberger’s Environmental Progress organization.
