The Biden administration advocated for brutal sex “reassignment” surgery for children on Thursday.
Biden Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine (formerly Richard) told an MSNBC host that kids needed to be “empowered” to have life-altering surgery as minors.
“So, we really want to base our treatment and to affirm and to support and empower these youth, not to limit their participation in activities like sports…and even limit their ability to get gender affirmation treatment in their state.”
“Gender affirmation treatment” encapsulates anything from puberty blockers to sex reassignment surgery. These treatments are used by the medical industry to attempt to help people who feel like they are the wrong gender. Oftentimes, these surgeries lead to permanent damage and irreversible issues down the road for youth.
Rachel Levine is a biological male who ‘identifies’ as a woman. Levine has two children but left his wife of 25 years to pursue life as a “transgender female” in 2013. Levine won USA Today’s “Woman of the Year” recognition. Levine joined the Biden administration in February of 2021 and was confirmed in the Senate 52-48.
