Highly profitable pediatric gender clinics have been opening all across the country over the past few decades.
- Nearly 300 new pediatric gender clinics have popped up across the U.S. over the last few decades amid rising rates of transgenderism among young people, the Daily Caller reported.
- While transgender identity becomes more popular, pediatric clinics have opened to offer medical and psychological services to children who wish to change their biological sex.
- “The number of pediatric gender clinics has risen dramatically during the last two decades just as the number of trans-identifying youth has increased by more than 4,000% over the same time period,” psychologist Joseph Burgo said.
- Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee performed double mastectomies on minors and offered cross-sex hormones that can permanently sterilize a child.
- “It’s natural to assume that the medical profession has increased supply in response to demand for its services. Like most professionals, physicians and surgeons also seek to maximize their income and, as Dr. Shayne Taylor informed her Vanderbilt University Medical Center audience, gender medicine is highly profitable,” Burgo continued.
PSYCHOLOGIST JOSEPH BURGO ON HOSPITALS PERFORMING GENDER SURGERIES ON MINORS:
“It’s a lot of money. These surgeries make a lot of money,” BURGO said. “So a female to male chest reconstruction could bring in $40,000. A patient just on routine hormone treatment who I’m only seeing a few times a year can bring in several thousand dollars without requiring a lot of visits and labs. It actually makes money for the hospital.”
- Last month, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee called for an investigation into Vanderbilt after details surfaced surrounding what the medical center was doing to minors.
- “The ‘pediatric transgender clinic’ at Vanderbilt University Medical Center raises serious moral, ethical, and legal concerns,” Lee told the Daily Caller.
- “We should not allow permanent, life-altering decisions that hurt children or policies that suppress religious liberties, all for the purpose of financial gain,” the governor continued. “We have to protect Tennessee children, and this warrants a thorough investigation.”
