I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray against these evil surgeries. Protect our innocent children from this insidious, manipulative doctrine, Lord.

Although the media attempts to deny it, transgender surgeries are being performed on kids as young as 12. This calls for prayer.

From The Christian Post. Ask anyone who has endured an abusive relationship, one of the worst forms of psychological manipulation that narcissistic abusers employ is gaslighting, wherein the abuser makes the abused party think they’re crazy. The corporate media has mastered this tactic with so-called “gender-affirming care,” refining it to a T.

Legacy press outlets have insisted, in lockstep with a seemingly predetermined narrative, that “gender-affirming surgeries” are most assuredly not being performed on minors or they are minimizing them if they are. Those now scrutinizing the policies and practices at children’s hospitals nationwide are delusional right-wing lunatics threatening the hospital staff, they maintain.

But are minors being irreversibly maimed nowadays, as those dastardly right-wingers claim? Yes, but don’t take my word for it. What follows is an easily accessible sample of original source material showing doctors involved in these operations in recent years; these are gender clinicians speaking and writing in their own words in prominent peer-reviewed journals.

  1. In December 2018, the medical journal The Lancet (Diabetes & Endocrinology) published an article called “Gender-affirming hormones and surgery in transgender children and adolescents,” which amalgamated “findings on mental health outcomes, cognitive and physical effects, side-effects, and safety variables” on cross-sex hormones and surgical interventions in youth. These measures in females, the article’s summary states, “are associated with improvements in mental health and quality of life.” The journal does admit that vaginoplasty surgeries are “extremely scarce” for under-18 individuals. But even if they are very rare, what explains the media’s hurried rush to assure us that they are not happening? Isn’t one maimed minor, one too many?
  2. Dating all the way back to 2014, a peer-reviewed article in the Journal of Sexual Medicine noted that “despite the minimum age of 18 as eligibility to undergo irreversible procedures, anecdotal reports show that vaginoplasties of female-affirmed patients under 18 have been performed by surgeons, thereby contravening the World Professional Association for Transgender Health Standards of Care.” It must be noted here that these vaunted WPATH guidelines are basically a smokescreen of suggestions. They are certainly not hard and fast rules that are enforced by relevant patient-safety laws. And might we ask why the mass media is so uninterested in looking into these “anecdotal reports” of minors?
  3. In a 2017 Journal of Sexual Medicine article titled “Age is Just a Number: WPATH-affiliated surgeons’ Experiences and Attitudes Toward Vaginoplasties in Transgender females under 18 years of age in the United States,” it is documented that “[o]f the 11 surgeons who had performed vaginoplasty on a transgender female minor, 10 were in private practice. Reported ages of minors undergoing surgery ranged from 15 to ‘a day before 18’ years.” The article goes on to explain that while there was no unanimous recall among the surgeons interviewed of who had performed such a surgery on “the youngest,” one surgeon stated that a boy who had been operated on in this way “was just on the cusp of turning 16.”  So much for these brutal genital surgeries “not happening” to kids, right? And, last I checked, the age of 15 on the cusp of 16 is still legally considered a “minor,” no?
  4. What about double mastectomies on young women, including minor girls? These have been happening for several years now and the numbers are rising, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Most disturbingly, as journalist Lisa Selin Davis detailed in an April substack essay, these surgeries are widely marketed to minor girls and photographic evidence of this abounds.
    In September 2018, the Federalist highlighted the alarming contents of an article from May of that year that was published in JAMA Pediatrics titled “Chest Reconstruction and Chest Dysphoria in Transmasculine Minors and Young Adults: Comparisons of Nonsurgical and Postsurgical Cohorts.” The first author listed in this article is Johanna Olson-Kennedy, a Los Angeles pediatrician who documented the experiences of 68 post-operative girls about how they felt after their breasts were amputated. The data shows that at the time of their surgeries, 33 were under the age of 18. Five of those girls were 14. Two were only 13.
    Not to be outdone, footage of Kellyn Lakhardt of Kaiser Permanente-Oakland has been widely shared online where the gender clinician claims that the youngest girl to have ever undergone a “masculinizing” gender mastectomy was 12 years old.
    At the Center for Gender Surgery in Boston Children’s Hospital, which has come under fire because of videos shared by activist Chris Elston (aka “Billboard Chris”), which then went viral after LibsofTikTok retweeted them, the Journal of Clinical Medicine documents that dozens of girls have had their breasts removed.  A data table on page 3 of their article from earlier this year called, “A Single Center Case Series of Gender-Affirming Surgeries and the Evolution of a Specialty Anesthesia Team,” reveals that 65 double mastectomies were performed on minor girls from 2017-2020.
  5. Finally, given the recently-released audio of staffers at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., saying on tape that “gender-affirming” hysterectomies are performed on 16-year-olds, which was followed by a denial, and then followed by the expected interference-running from outlets like NPR and the Washington Post (which never fail to genuflect before the American state religion of LGBTQ dogma) is there any truth to the claim that uterus removal surgeries on minor gender-dysphoric girls are occurring anywhere? Or is that just another crazy right-wing conspiracy theory fueling a campaign of terrifying threats?
    In a May 2017 article in the Obstetrics & Gynecology journal called “Hysterectomy as Gender-Affirmation Surgery in Female-to-Male Transgender Persons,” the authors Neeta Makhija and Linda Mihalov reviewed 15 females who underwent hysterectomies by a single surgeon from 2012 to 2016. The age range listed for this group of 15 patients was 16 to 43.
    Setting aside whether it is ethical to remove a physically healthy uterus from a female at any age (it’s not) given her higher likelihood of developing dementia and other major health complications, here it is being plainly stated that, yes, these surgeries have indeed happened in recent years to under-18 youth.

Due to the media’s refusal to research and further scrutinize these issues, the American public has been kept largely in the dark about these atrocities. Yet the facts are steadily emerging because of the dedicated work of alternative media publications and tireless online investigative sleuths. The horrifying realities are becoming undeniable but many have turned a blind eye and remained loyal to their preferred ideological narrative because the truth is too unpleasant to bear.

Minors are being surgically disfigured under the banner of a non-existent “gender identity” in clinics and hospitals around the country. As more and more de-transitioners who were sterilized and disfigured as minors start to raise their voices and as others around the world begin filing lawsuits against the medical institutions that harmed them, let me hereby put the U.S. journalists who covered up this grotesque medical abuse of children on notice: You will not be allowed to feign ignorance and pretend that you did not know.

Father, deliver us from the fantasy of selecting our own gender! Protect our young people. Bring out more and more de-transitioners to put a spotlight on what is happening. Give courage where courage is needed in this battle. And help all of us to faithfully pray and do what we can in this war.

I have been praying that a young woman who posted online, seeking comments concerning her contemplation of beginning testosterone treatments. I was able to post a very relevant comment concerning the war she would be setting up in her cells containing XX chromosomes that are programming for a different outcome than what the male hormone would cause. Continued messaging revealed a desire for children, and that desire was so strong she was even willing to carry a child if her partner (female) could not. I again cautioned her about male hormone treatment, that it could deny her that option. Pray with me that she will conclude her desire for children is greater than her liking the idea of a beard, and she will come to understand how she can live as God made her.

Father, I pray that the ungodly plans of the unrighteous will be reversed, and they will be held accountable for this ungodly action. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

I guess we’re pretty simple minded. We have about 40 people in our prayer ministry. We have transgenderism as a permanent prayer request on our weekly prayer list of about 100 requests. We send it out every week and we pray against it in both of our weekly prayer meetings. When I was younger, I could never have imagined anything like this. Lord forgive us.

This can’t be happening without parental consent. Nothing in this article mentions the fact that these children’s parents have obviously given their permission to have their children mutilated. They need to be held accountable! Sadly, often times it’s the parents/grandparents who steer them in that direction. So twisted. So very, very sad. Father, help us.

    In many places, a child is allowed to have these treatments without parental consent and even without parental knowledge. It’s called the “child’s right to privacy.”. Horrifying but true.

    But you are right. Often it is the parents and grandparents who steer children in this direction, thinking they are being compassionate and affirming. But more often, it is teachers who are indoctrinating these children without parents even being told. As you say, twisted and very, very sad. Absolutely, they need to be held accountable!

    Some states have intervened to remove the parent having any authority, supposedly to prevent child abuse from denial of gender affirmation. California has definitely done this.

Today is no different than those who worshiped pagan gods in the Old Testament. They offered babies and children to the false gods as a sacrifice. May the Lord help us! He is faithful!

    I don’t think mutilation on this scale was taking place. They did make eunuchs. But surgeries trying to switch genders? Selling baby parts? I think it is worse now.
