I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we thank You for this statement and these medical professionals. We pray that every organization and lawmaker in America would hear this statement and reconsider the dangerous treatments being forced on children.
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Nearly 100 medical professionals signed on to a statement urging America to end child sex changes and other trans treatments.

From The Christian Post. A group of medical professionals have called on the medical establishment to abandon their support for sex-change procedures for minors suffering from gender dysphoria.

Let the IFA community know how to pray for you.


At a press conference held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, the American College of Pediatricians unveiled the “Doctors Protecting Children Declaration.”

The statement was signed by nearly 100 medical professionals, including physicians, nurses, psychotherapists and behavioral health clinicians, as well as “other health professionals, scientists, researchers, and public health and policy professionals.”

The declaration was also endorsed by 18 medical organizations, nine advocacy groups and 13 “supporting leaders” who are not necessarily from a medical background.

It asked “the medical professional organizations of the United States” to “stop the promotion of social affirmation, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgeries for children and adolescents who experience distress over their biological sex.”

“Instead, these organizations should recommend comprehensive evaluations and therapies aimed at identifying and addressing underlying psychological co-morbidities and neurodiversity that often presuppose to and accompany gender dysphoria,” the signatories added.

“We also encourage the physicians who are members of these professional organizations to contact their leadership and urge them to adhere to the evidence-based research now available.”

The declaration called into question the effectiveness of body deforming and irreversible procedures pushed on children who are confused about their bodies, including puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and mutilating surgeries, such as castration.

Warning that “there are serious long-term risks associated with the use of social transition, puberty blockers, masculizing or feminizing hormones, and surgeries,” the declaration listed side effects of puberty blockers as “emotional lability, worsening psychological illness, low bone density, impaired memory, and the rare side-effect of pseudotumor cerebri (brain swelling).”

ACP Executive Director Dr. Jill Simons elaborated on her concerns about the U.S. medical establishment’s current protocols on how to care for trans-identified minors.

“This declaration was authored by the American College of Pediatricians, but really it was developed from the expertise of hundreds of doctors, researchers and other healthcare workers and leaders who for years have been sounding the alarm on the harmful protocols that continue to be promoted by the medical organizations in the United States,” she said.

Simons specifically named the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Endocrine Society, the Pediatric Endocrine Society, the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry as organizations that promote such “harmful protocols.”

She pushed back on claims perpetuated by such organizations that “those of us who are concerned are a minority and that their protocols are consensus,” adding that “they are not consensus and we are speaking in a loud unified voice: ‘Enough.’”

At the press conference, Dr. Andre Van Mol of The Christian Medical and Dental Associations cited statistics finding that “the natural course of gender dysphoria is desisted by adulthood, conservatively, in 85% of the cases unless it is affirmed.”

He added, “Gender dysphoria carries with it the overwhelming probability of underlying mental health issues, adverse family dynamics, adverse childhood experiences and autism spectrum disorder, that usually predate the gender dysphoria itself.”

Van Mol advised “watchful waiting coupled with mental health evaluation and counseling for both patient and family” in light of “the probability of both desistence and underlying mental health and other issues” as “the standard of care for minors with gender dysphoria.”

Concerns about the long-term impact of sex-change procedures for minors have prompted several states to ban such procedures on youth. States that have enacted prohibitions on some or all such procedures include: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

In February 2022, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American College of Physicians, the American Osteopathic Association and the American Psychiatric Association released a joint statement denouncing state-level efforts to, as they say, “criminalize gender-affirming care” for young people.

The trans-affirming groups added: “Our organizations have strongly opposed any legislation or regulation that interferes in the confidential relationship between a patient and their physician and the provision of evidence-based patient care for any patient. Patients, including youth, must be able to discuss gender-affirming care with their trusted physician to determine together what care is best for them. … Our organizations will not stand for any efforts that discriminate against transgender and gender-diverse individuals and cause harm to their health and well-being.”

Doesn’t take a medical professional to figure out the evil being done to babies in the womb to children in schools which used to be a safe place, to older children up to adults. Wake up church. Are we a safe place? Are we rescuing our church family and making a difference for our community?

Does anyone else struggle with how ironic it is to call into question God’s creational plan and purpose in making us male and female – no other choices given – as being “gender-affirming”? It seems to me that gender affirming would be to affirm one’s “actual” given gender from conception, not to affirm someone’s “imagined” gender.

Father, thank you for those who have signed this declaration. May those doctors and professionals who are afraid of standing for truth realize the awful doctrine they are bowing to. Turn their hearts to you and to the love you have for children. Thank you for the beginning of the reversal of this terrible doctrine of gender-affirming care. Touch our hearts as a nation with repentance for denying truth as you have put it in your holy word.

Thank You, LORD, for the Awakening of the medical profession and professionals. Thank You for there being a return to the basic tenants of their Hippocratic oath of first or all DO NO HARM. Thank You, LORD, for the truths concerning the harms being done by those promoting gender disfigurement surgically and medically being exposed more and more soothes procedures come to an end!

It’s all about creating lifelong patients when they are too young to understand what they are doing. Anyone who goes along with it is a monster. We are purposely destroying children for profit. It’s like abortion. People act horrified when they find out lobsters feel pain when they are boiled alive but are fine with live human babies being burned alive with saline solutions or having their limbs pulled off as shown in “Silent Scream” ultrasound. The West serves the god Molech with glee via child mutilation and child murder and Jesus was very clear about their fate. Something about millstones tied around the neck and being tossed into the sea. As for the nation we allow these things plus much more that is a stench in God’s nostrils God’s nostrils and yes, the
end is fast approaching. The best we can hope for is a temporary extension of judgement…like Josiah’s reforms… but this nation is running on the fumes of our past. Why would we expect to be exempt from the Biblical pattern laid out in Deutronomy 28 ??It outlines spiritual law and Gid does not bluff.

    Yes amen – we can look at Psalm 106:37-44 also and it’s pretty clear what’s happening to our nation:

    37″They sacrificed their sons
    and their daughters to the demons;
    38they poured out innocent blood,
    the blood of their sons and daughters,
    whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
    and the land was polluted with blood.
    39Thus they became unclean by their acts,
    and prostituted themselves in their doings.

    40Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people,
    and he abhorred his heritage;
    41he gave them into the hand of the nations,
    so that those who hated them ruled over them.
    42Their enemies oppressed them,
    and they were brought into subjection under their power.”

    My God have mercy! May your church repent adequately and act sufficiently to stop these atrocities and the subsequent infiltration and takeover of our country!

We can pray all these prayers, and those in ‘authority’ or in ‘the know’ can make all the laws for counseling and medical treatments for this issue from now to kingdom come but until the REAL ISSUE is addressed none of it will make a difference.
The real issue is SPIRITUAL… until those in the medical field realize that we are spiritual beings in a physical body and begin addressing the spiritual issues, all the pharmaceutical and psychotherapy in the world won’t fix the problem.
Get the spirit aligned with The Holy Spirit of God and the spirits of darkness that are causing these mental and physiological issues will disappear!

Father God… please open the spiritual eyes and ears of the people in position for bringing forward and assisting in making these law changing decisions so that the most important thing becomes the most important thing… the SPIRITUAL well being of humanity.
Nevertheless, not my will but Yours be done, for You see the whole picture and I don’t.
In Jesus’ Name.

Heavenly Father, we praise You for every man and woman who has taken their position of authority under You and given a voice of truth for protecting the most vulnerable. We bear witness to You when we are obedient to You and do Your Will. Please continue to dismantle and defeat false ideologies and practices such as gender transition, which denies Your creationism. Restore and heal the lost, their identity is found in You and Your love. In Jesus powerful name. Amen

Glory, all glory and Hallelujahs to You LORD! This RN so thanks you for this mercy, this new thing you are doing! Let roots of love, real love, truth and boldness grow deep and start spreading and keep spreading Lord.
Forgive us, your church for our own sin that allowed the lies to take hold and grow and started all kinds of ick to grow in own hearts…hate, judgement, despair, discouragement to name just a few…LORD Jesus, galvanize our hearts with Your love lavishly so only zeal for You, love, truth and all humans comes through….Maranatha!

Only 100? It should be 100 x 100 or more! Sanity must be restored among our Healthcare professionals if they are to have credibility and honor. Between the Covid scandal and gender dysphoria bandwagon, our Healthcare professionals have lost a lot of goodwill.

Praise you Father for this victory. I know it saddens you as it does me that parents are not raising and protecting their young ones from this kind of lunacy and are instead allowing others to manipulate them and their children into horrible decisions. I pray for a strengthening of parents and a return by them to you and your word, Father. I thank you that this group of Professionals have banded together to tell the truth and hopefully bring a speedy halt to this insanity. Please protect them as they move forward in this regard and shield them from the attacks the devil and his minions will no doubt unleash. In the Mighty Name of JESUS, Amen.
