    The provision of transgender services at Planned Parenthood clinics has surged in recent years, coinciding with the growing profitability of the transgender medical sector that exploits children. Data from regional branches of the abortion giant indicates a significant expansion. Planned Parenthood began selling hormone treatments in 2005. By 2022, 41 out of 49 regional branches were exploiting kids with the sales. However, the past three years have seen a substantial uptick in Planned Parenthood’s involvement in transgender healthcare. Now 45 of its affiliates sell the dangerous hormones. From 2020 to 2022, the number of transgender sales and related visits at...

    It’s November 2023, and, following the October 7 attacks by Hamas terrorists that killed some 1,400 Israelis and at least 31 Americans, thousands of demonstrators march through New York City, calling for the destruction of the Jewish state. Chants of “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” echo through the streets, along with “there is only one solution: intifada revolution.” Among the crowd is the infamous Palestinian American activist Linda Sarsour, who warns through a megaphone that a cabal of wily Jews has conspired to place “their little posters” (of kidnapped Israeli civilians) across the city, seeking...

    individuals who have undergone gender-transition surgeries face a significantly higher risk of suicide, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) compared to those who have not had such surgeries. Researchers from the University of Texas Medical Branch conducted the study, discovering that the rates of these adverse effects were over 12 times higher in individuals who had gender-transition surgeries compared to those without any history of such procedures. The study analyzed data from nearly 16 million adult patients in the U.S., aged 18 to 60, who visited emergency rooms between 2003 and 2023. This information was extracted from a broader database...

    CV NEWS FEED // A judge this month granted Prisha Mosley’s lawsuit to proceed against the doctors who encouraged her to undergo life-altering “transgender” surgeries at 16. The lawsuit is the first of its kind that a judge has granted to proceed, according to Mosley’s lawyer. “This is the first substantive ruling we are aware of in which a Court has held that a detransitioner’s case against her health care professionals is legally viable,” Mosley’s lawyer Josh Payne stated, according to a May 16 FOX News article. “We are honored to represent Prisha as she pursues justice for herself and...
  • Liberals are Getting Themselves Sterilized to Protest Abortion Bans

    Abortion advocates are not content to just scream and shout about pro-life laws protecting babies from abortion. They are taking their protests even further by sterilizing themselves. Last month, medical researchers published a paper analyzing data on “permanent contraceptive procedures” among 18- to 30-year-olds. As LifeNews has previously reported, liberal men are getting vasectomies in record numbers to protest abortion bans across the country in the wake of the Dobbs decision overturning Roe v. Wade. Liberal women are getting tubals as well to avoid having to deal with aboriton bans they oppose. And that likely means fewer abortions. Reports of...

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...

    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...

    A recent study released by the University of Pittsburgh and Boston University has found that the number of individuals choosing permanent sterilization methods has continuously risen over the past few years. While the study focused on the sharp rise in sterilization following the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade with the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, it also notes that sterilization was already on the rise prior to Dobbs — reinforcing the trend in population decline seen worldwide. Per the report, which was published in the JAMA Health Forum, there was an immediate jump in tubal ligations...

    The world is waking up to the horror that is 'gender-affirming care.' Of course, that term is one of the biggest lies ever told, but it becomes even more horrific when it is applied to children. This weekend, the French Senate joined the growing number of nations trying to ban the barbaric practice of sterilizing and mutilating children before they're even CLOSE to an age where they are capable of informed consent. To date, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Holland, and the UK have either banned or placed severe restrictions on trans surgeries and hormones for minors, along with 22 states in...

    Doctors at the World Professional Association for Transgender Health repeatedly struggled with various side effects of what they call “gender-affirming care,” including cancer in teens, reduced sexual function, and the lack of informed consent for procedures with lifelong impacts, newly unearthed documents reveal. WPATH, a controversial organization that transgender advocates and health agencies use to justify “transgender” medical interventions, frames itself as the leading expert organization on medical care for people who identify as transgender. It has faced criticism for advocating experimental practices that ignore serious concerns about informed consent and long-term side effects. Journalist Michael Shellenberger released a report,...

    New video from an internal discussion by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health, known as WPATH, an interdisciplinary medical association devoted to transgender health and gender medicine, shows the group discussing issues around trans medicine. To understand the group’s significance in this space, major American medical groups recognize WPATH’s standards of care as the authoritative standards for the provision of transgender health care. In the video, members are seen discussing the challenges of explaining medical concepts to kids who may not have even taken biology yet and data about transitioning and reproductive regret. The footage, released in a report...

    Get comfy and brace yourselves. This is a long, and often heartbreaking, thread. Journalist Michael Shellenberger is reporting on the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) report and it is eye-opening. Advocates of 'gender-affirming care' say it's safe and necessary. This thread shows it's anything but. First, a shout out to Mia, the woman who put months of work into this: Just so we’re all clear on a few things: I’ve spent the last six months working on this report, and I’m the sole author. But the whole project wouldn’t have been possible without the steadfast and unwavering support...

Yet the US government, American doctors...

McGraw kicked off his comments on transgendering by noting that the U.S. medical establishment is violating medical ethics by pushing “gender-affirming care.” “It’s interesting they choose words like ‘gender-affirming care.’ You know, that’s interesting...

This film exposes EVERYTHING.” The documentary features interviews with notable voices who have spoken out on the sexualization...

    A surgeon whistleblower says his savings have been “wiped out” by lawyers after he exposed a Texas hospital’s secret procedures on kids. Dr. Eithan Haim, a former Texas Children’s Hospital surgeon, told Fox News that he has had to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in response to an investigation against him. The doctor is reportedly a whistleblower who is behind the release of documents that allegedly show the hospital had not abided by Texas’s ban on transgender surgeries for minors. Texas law prohibits prescribing puberty blockers and hormones to children. While the Texas Children’s Hospital has reportedly said it...

    Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro interviewed Dr. Eithan Haim, the whistleblower for the bombshell story about secretive transgender surgeries for minors at the Texas Children’s Hospital, who was hit with targeted harassment by the Biden administration’s Department of Justice. As The Daily Wire reported, Haim said for him the story all started in September 2022, when he saw The Daily Wire’s investigation of Vanderbilt University’s transgender clinic, where so-called “gender-affirming” care for minors was described as a “big money maker” and irreversible treatments such as double mastectomies were being performed on children.” He then learned that the hospital where...

    Warren Buffett is a philanthropist whose billions have been funneled to pro-abortion organizations for decades, including many behind the expansion of the abortion pill. While some of this is well-known among pro-lifers, what is less known is that Buffett was also instrumental in creating a “church” as a front for referring women for illegal abortions prior to Roe v. Wade — a “church” that eventually merged into Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. Warren Buffett’s abortion pill philanthropy Warren Buffett’s Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation was among the original investors in Danco Laboratories, the U.S. abortion pill manufacturer. In addition, the Washington Post...
