Some doctors are speaking out against the dangerous ideology creeping into American parenthood that says:
The American College of Pediatricians has released a statement, Gender Ideology Harms Children, urging “educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex.” These pediatricians are not afraid to call this what it is: child abuse.
This group of doctors is small in numbers, but their courage is admirable. Read more about their history and vision here.
As Frontline Moms, we knew the current gender madness was dangerous but we have been waiting for someone to back up what our hearts were screaming.
In contrast, the 64,000 member American Academy of Pediatricians has their policy statement: Office-Based Care for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning Youth. In lock-step with the culture, they recommend that pediatricians should be non-judgmental toward “sexual minority” youth, and provide for “transgender” youth ... the opportunity to acknowledge and affirm their feelings of gender dysphoria and desires to transition to the opposite gender.”
Which organization would you hope your child's pediatrician belongs to?
