To pursue its radical social engineering plans the Biden administration has no problem sentencing kids to a lifetime of a mental illness.
Skyrocketing rates of gender dysphoria are the result of indoctrination and propaganda not natural occurrence. Why would a society harm its children in this way? https://t.co/SKCEevpdAa

FNC: “Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra repeatedly dodged questions Wednesday from Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., regarding particulars of the department’s stance on ‘gender-affirming care’ for children.” Braun wasn’t buying what the administration was selling.
“A subject that is really creating controversy across the country would be gender-affirming care for young people, and it’s on the HHS website,” Braun told Becerra, referencing HHS advocacy of puberty blockers during puberty and hormone therapy starting in early adolescence.
Irreversible surgery is “typically used in adulthood or case-by-case basis in adolescence,” according to the agency. “I’d like to work through what gender-affirming care actually means and do it with a couple of subjects in mind: drugs and surgeries,” Braun continued.
“What I would simply say to you is that the FDA would raise alarms if they saw that a particular medicine or treatment were being misused. And at this stage, what we know is that for a drug to be out there available, it has to be safe and effective as FDA has found,” Becerra replied.
“And so, what I would simply say with regard to this particular subject is when individuals go in for care, it is their physician who is making that decision with them about what type of medicine or treatment they should receive,” Becerra added.
“I’m not going to mention the particulars here,” Braun said. “It’s almost grotesque to imagine what could occur. Could you explain what irreversible top and bottom sex change surgeries are and why that is on the [HHS] portal, as well?”
Insisting there are “many different types of procedures that can be deployed,” Becerra said that “in any case, no individual, no patient will proceed forward unless his or her doctor has advised of the procedure. And it is considered by the FDA and others who have to go ahead and certify a medicine or procedure to be safe and effective.”
“So I’ll try to distill it into a more simple form,” Braun cut in. “In what case would it be appropriate to perform irreversible sex change surgery on kids?”
“Those decisions are made by that individual in consultation with physician and caregivers, and no decision would be made without having consulted appropriately,” Becerra replied.
“And I think we just need to think about it carefully, because we’re navigating into territory that we’ve never done before as a government. Kids going through this are having a hard time. We should be maybe focusing more on mental health and not things that are irreversible.”
“I believe that we should help those have the life-affirming care that they need,” he said. “There are many transgender youth who have actually gone in the opposite direction and taken their life. If we can make life better for someone in America, we should. Especially if in consultation with their physician, they approve of those procedures.” Notice the diversion ploy to suicide because Becerra is uncomfortable acknowledging the obvious: The Biden administration approves of the mental disease of gender dysphoria.
