Stop Mutilating Kids and Indicting People Who Say So

The DOJ has hit a whistleblower with four felony charges, while other doctors line up to save children.

These days, the only law of the land is whatever Joe Biden’s Department of Two-Tiered Justice says it is. That’s true regarding January 6, Donald Trump, pro-life activists, parents of public school kids, Catholics, and anyone who dares oppose the Rainbow Mafia.

Dr. Eithan Haim is discovering that truth, good and hard.

“In February 2022,” Haim said, “the Texas attorney general released an opinion that so-called gender-affirming care for children could constitute child abuse under Texas law.” Shortly thereafter, Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) publicly promised to stop providing such “treatment” to minors.

In May 2023, Haim anonymously blew the whistle because so-called sex-change procedures were still being performed on minors as young as 11 at TCH. Based on information Haim provided, Christopher Rufo reported at the time, “The Houston-based children’s hospital — the largest in the United States — has secretly continued to perform transgender medical interventions, including the use of implantable puberty blockers, on minor children.” He said TCH also “openly promoted ‘gender-affirming care’ to its physicians.”

Once Haim and Rufo exposed the story, the Texas legislature immediately outlawed the practice.

In January 2024, Haim publicly identified himself as the whistleblower. He felt forced to do so because he says he’s been subject to a very expensive “blatant attempt at political intimidation” by the Biden administration. He received a visit from Department of Health and Human Services agents within a month of Rufo’s May 2023 report, at which time he was told he “was a ‘potential target’ of an investigation involving alleged violation of federal criminal law related to medical records.”

But Haim didn’t disclose individual patient records. Rufo says, “I can confirm that nothing in the information provided to me identified any individual; all the documents were, in fact, carefully redacted.”

Instead, Haim blew the whistle on lies and abuse being perpetrated by a hospital that supposedly operates under the same “do no harm” oath that all doctors should uphold.

Never mind all that. Social Justice Department jackboots are after him, and — now that it’s “Pride Month” — the DOJ has indicted Haim. “Assistant U.S. Attorney Tina Ansari began threatening Haim with prosecution” soon after the HHS agent visit, Rufo says. “Now, Ansari has made good on those threats. [Last] week, U.S. marshals appeared at Haim’s home and summoned him to court to face an indictment on four felony counts of violating HIPAA.” He’s due in court today.

Meanwhile, in February 2023, Jamie Reed similarly but not anonymously blew the whistle on St. Louis Children’s Hospital for the same thing. “By the time I departed,” she wrote, “I was certain that the way the American medical system is treating these patients is the opposite of the promise we make to ‘do no harm.’ Instead, we are permanently harming the vulnerable patients in our care.” Specifically, Reed was appalled by the drastic increase in adolescent females seeking “treatment.” Six months later, The New York Times corroborated her allegations.

Yet Reed hasn’t had a visit from HHS or DOJ. Maybe that’s because she’s a self-identified “queer woman” who is “politically to the left of Bernie Sanders.”

I shouldn’t have to say this, but experimenting on and mutilating children is bad. Yet the Rainbow Cult is intent on grooming young people to create new acolytes, so this Frankenstein work continues.

Fortunately, there is growing resistance, and Haim and Reed aren’t alone. The “Doctors Protecting Children” declaration has been signed by the conservative American College of Pediatricians, the Catholic Medical Association, and many other doctors and health leaders. “Responsible informed consent is not possible” with minors, it says, because of the “extremely limited long-term follow-up studies of interventions, and the immature, often impulsive, nature of the adolescent brain.” It adds that gender dysphoria can most often be resolved without the “serious long-term risks” of so-called “affirming” care.

We knew this already, but it’s great to see the American College of Pediatrics hold a press conference to say so. “Transition affirmation is not proven to be safe or effective long term,” said Dr. Andre Van Mol at that press conference. “It does not reduce suicides. It does not repair mental health issues or trauma.”

He added, “There is always a more honest way to deal with gender confusion than the chemical sterilization and surgical mutilation of healthy young bodies.” Amen to that.

If nothing else, let’s dispense with the “consensus” leftists usually like to trot out when they’re busy trashing science.

As for Garland, we should all be grateful that he did not secure a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court as the supposed “moderate” Barack Obama proclaimed him to be. He’s been a leading goon for the injustice perpetrated by the Biden administration, and he ought to be impeached.
