Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine, the highest-ranking transgender person in the U.S. government, claimed during a recent interview with NPR that “there is no argument” about “gender-affirming care” among pediatricians and doctors who specialize in adolescents.
Levine made the comments ahead of a Saturday speech at Texas Christian University during which Levine blamed the high rate of suicidal ideation among transgender-identifying youth in part on “harassment, scapegoating and intentional abuse,” according to prepared remarks given to NPR.
“The language of medicine and science is being used to drive people to suicide,” Levine also claimed.
“There is no argument among medical professionals – pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists, adolescent medicine physicians, adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, etc. – about the value and the importance of gender-affirming care,” Levine told NPR.
In response to the HHS fact sheet, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo released a different fact sheet refuting the claims of the HHS regarding the treatment of minors with gender dysphoria.

All lies from a mentally ill man.
Dr. Levine is not telling the truth.
The American College of Pediatricians does not support “transitioning” the gender of children. They’re linked below.
Nor do many other pediatricians. And, the fact sheet linked in the article above is worth reading.
Why does “follow the science” only mean “follow the science” when it leads to a predetermined political outcome?
Let’s really follow the science.
America has fallen so much. Look at that ridiculous image. Our enemies must see weakness.
A pervert trying to destroy the innocent.
A transgender man who pretends he is a woman, does not belong in medicine, nor in leadership roles in our government. Nobody can take this man seriously, no matter what he says or does. Parents must never register their family with a man like that, playing doctor, for family medical services.
I just read that on Mother’s Day, Apple+TV will present a show, with characters from the Peanuts cartoon series, in a story with a two-mommy lesbian family. The cartoon will feature the lesbian couple as Mom and Dad, in a Mother’s Day story. I guess one lesbian pretends to be the mom, and the other lesbian pretends to be the dad, in this cartoon story. Poor Charles Schulz, the deceased creator of Peanuts, was a Christian.
We all know that Peppermint Patti was lesbian, modeled after Shultz’ lesbian relative Pat.
Wrong. Charles Schultz is on record saying that Peppermint Patty was a tomboy, not a lesbian. Stop trying to filter everything through your distorted ideological LGBTQ lens. Nobody cared about gay when the Peanuts cartoon started, certainly not enough to put a closeted gay character into the comic. You’re reading your wishes back into something that was innocent and harmless and not in the service of the rainbow agenda. Stop it.
Hoping that in the month of June earth welcomes an asteroid, it will be the last “pride month” in history..
“We all know that Peppermint Patti was lesbian…” I am in my 70s, far removed from the days I read the Peanuts strip. I cannot recall the ages given for the characters, but I always assumed all were prepubertal; further, I never saw any hint of sexuality in the strip itself. Therefore unless Shultz explicitly stated that one of his characters was homosexual and that he intended to make a statement about homosexuality thereby, I would have to ask YFC why I don’t know what he thinks everyone else does.
Charles Schulz was a Protestant Sunday School teacher, who often used Gospel themes for his “Peanuts” comic strip episodes. A long time ago, I recall well, both Catholic priests and Protestant ministers using episodes from “Peanuts,” to illustrate points in their sermons and newspaper columns. My favorite character was Snoopy. To wrongfully corrupt and degrade the beloved “Peanuts” series, as a false, filthy, sinful “Sodom and Gomorrah” family show for children on Mother’s Day, is a total horror beyond belief! This show should be cancelled, and the Schulz family ought to sue them!
My comment if May 4, at 4:38am, was edited. I think that America needs honesty about marriage and family– especially for the sake of children. Gay “marriage” should not exist, and children should never be adopted to gays. Natural children should be removed by the Social Services from a home in which the mother or father “turns gay,” with gay sex in the home. Books, films and vhildren’s cartoons featuring the LGBTs, are immoral and dangerous to society, especially for kids, and should be prohibited.
You are entitled to your opinion, even if is outrageously cruel.
No. We need a country that respects God, traditional marriage, and children, and upholds common decency and morals, straight ftom God Himself, as taught for thousands of years, and is found in your Bible. Read it! America is not meant to be a filthy “Sodom and Gomorrah-ville!”
I recall, in the mid-1960s, teaching a group of kids to sing, accompany themselves on instruments, and act out the cute song, “Snoopy vs. the Red Baron,” as part of a school project. It was hilarious! Everyone just loved it!
In those days, right before the evil “hippie rebellion” got going, children were innocent, schools were normal and decent, and we had Traditional Marriage and family, and good manners and good morals upheld, everywhere in American society. Women were proud to be feminine, traditional wives and mothers, and were highly respected in their roles. And men were proud of their natural, masculine roles, as husbands, fathers, and leaders of society, in many capacities. Then, very quickly, everything fell to pieces, in society and in the Church! It was so horrible! I hope we can someday return to this much better society, and totally abolish today’s “Culture of Death” era!
We are supposed to take this creature seriously? This is the mirror world of the LGBT syndicate and yes they are coming for your children and have all but admitted it.
Is that a movie clip from The Lord of the Rings? One of Sauron’s minions in Mordor?
These things being pushed by the elites are just intended to distract from the MIT study that confirms the Covid vaccines cause heart attacks.
Definitely not a natural blonde.
