A whistleblower is making the public aware of an alarming trend of recommending gender transition procedures to youth who do not understand the full ramifications of the treatments.
Christopher Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, published the troubling report.
Reportedly, a whistleblower told Rufo that doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital are “rushing children into cross-sex medical interventions and minimizing the objections of parents.”
The whistleblower claims to have worked with Dr. Richard Roberts who liberally prescribed puberty blockers, testosterone and estrogen and wrote referral letters for double mastectomies for young teens.
According to Rufo, the whistleblower said many of the children Roberts referred for gender reassignment procedures were autistic or had mental problems such as anxiety or depression.
Rufo also noted the whistleblower and other staff members believe hospital physicians are “inflicting irreversible harm on children.”
The whistleblower reportedly said: “I’m absolutely sick to my stomach … sometimes I have to go outside and cry, because, I don’t mean to be dramatic, but I truly feel like there is a demonic presence at my workplace.”
The whistleblower added: “And I’m so 100% against this whole ideology and this movement of children just feeling like they were born in the wrong body and then being ‘affirmed’ by adults who want to take advantage of them and make a buck.”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who has fought the Biden administration for advocating gender transition procedures for youth, argued in February 2022 that such treatments constitute child abuse.
As part of increased pressure from Texas government leaders, Texas Children’s Hospital announced in 2022 it would stop providing gender transition procedures on minors. However, according to a report published on May 16, 2023, the hospital still provided gender reassignment surgeries on children.
The whistleblower profiled a recent gender transition procedure coordinated by hospital staff on a 10-year-old girl.
The whistleblower noted that when parents questioned medical personnel, the “provider totally shut [them] down,” and many are afraid that objecting to medical recommendations could result in Child Protective Services removing their children from their home.
Greed is one of the driving forces behind the push to recommend youth receive gender transition procedures, according to the whistleblower.
“Transgender medicine is hugely lucrative. It’s like $70,000 to $80,000 dollars per kid if they go through with the whole thing—all the pharmacology drugs.”
“These doctors are activists,” claimed the whistleblower. “And they live for the applause of the medical community that praises and glorifies this up-and-coming success that has absolutely exploded, this transgender wing of medicine that has exploded over the last ten years.”
The whistleblower added: “They’re regarded as up-and-coming and cutting edge. And everyone’s on their side: the media is on their side, big tech is on their side.
“And everyone is applauding these providers who do this. And I do think that they think that they’re changing the world by what they’re doing. For better or worse, I think they believe that they’re making their mark on history, and they’re wanting to play God,” the whistleblower said.
The Daily Caller noted that neither Texas Children’s Hospital nor Dr. Roberts responded to requests for comment.
