White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has lambasted Republican lawmakers, accusing them of putting children at risk. In reality, it is the transgender movement that is truly putting children at risk.

From The Truth Fairy. Yesterday, White House Press Secretary accused Republican lawmakers of “engaging in a disturbing, cynical trend of attacking vulnerable transgender kids,” and exploiting them. “Instead of focusing on critical kitchen table issues like the economy, COVID, or addressing the country’s mental health crisis,” she said, “Republican lawmakers are currently debating legislation that, among many things, would target transgender youth with tactics that threaten to put pediatricians in prison if they provide medically necessary, life-saving care for the kids they serve.”

Life-saving care? Surely she must mean insulin or antibiotics?

No, she means “gender affirming care” that devilish euphemism for puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and experimental surgeries whose benefits are unproven, but whose risks—permanent sexual dysfunction, infertility, cardiac event and endometrial cancer are a few—ought to nudge any doctor toward soul searching. As I’ve written many times, these treatments are often recklessly administered, of questionable benefit to children, and attended by forbidding risks.


For these reasons, in the last two years, national gender clinics in France, the UKSweden and Finland have all reevaluated or curtailed their use. But as Psaki made clear, any legislator who tries to follow suit will face double-barreled legal opposition from the current Administration. Psaki said:

Legislators who are contemplating these discriminatory bills have been put on notice by the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services that laws and policies preventing care that health care professionals recommend for transgender minors may violate the Constitution and federal law. To be clear, every major medical association agrees that gender-affirming health care for transgender kids is a best practice and potentially life-saving.

There is, in fact, no proof that “affirmative care” improves the mental health of gender dysphoric youth long-term—much less that its interventions are “life-saving.” An outstanding recent paper in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy is only the latest to expose the poor empirical basis for these treatments with minors. It’s a must-read paper for any policy maker, parent, or psychologist grappling with this fraught question.

The authors state, as if with a sigh: “The evidence underlying the practice of pediatric gender transition is widely recognized to be of very low quality.”

Activists often exaggerate the suicide risk to gender dysphoric minors—as well as the mental health efficacy of these treatments—in order to coerce parents into acceding to the interventions. But as the authors point out: “The ‘transition or suicide’ narrative falsely implies that transition will prevent suicides. [N]either hormones nor surgeries have been shown to reduce suicidality in the long-term.”

That the Biden administration would peddle an activist talking point with no solid factual basis signals how desperate it is to please the radical flank of its supporters. That is too bad. Leaders who mollycoddle the activists quietly corrupting nearly every institution of American life fool themselves that they are merely paying a tax. They don’t realize it’s a ransom, and that those who demand it will never be satisfied until they have despoiled every American institution. And much worse in this case: they encourage irreversible harm to children.

In an address chock-a-block with fictions, perhaps Psaki’s most surprising was the notion that unlike the “economy, COVID” and the “country’s mental health crisis,” the risks gender activists now pose to our children is not a “kitchen table issue.” It is – she means – the sort of thing that excites Twitter, not normal Americans.

In Psaki’s worldview, then, Americans are not shaking their heads at their talented daughters, wondering if they ought to bother helping them train in a sport. Nor does she think Americans are desperately worried about what radical teachers are pushing on their kids at school—from racial essentialism and division to phony gender science about their bodies and identities.

But in the real world, Americans are very, very worried about these things. I’ve been privileged with a special window into their terror: an inbox full of thousands of desperate parents who write me daily of their teen daughters caught in the grips of a sudden transgender epiphany. And Ms. Psaki, I can promise you this: given the widespread availability of medical gender treatments, on demand, without therapist oversight and often without requiring parental consent – that is not merely one of that family’s concerns. It is all that family is thinking about. Every minute of every day—dear God, how can I save my little girl from doing harm to herself?

America has essentially become an unlocked medicine cabinet for gender medicine seekers as young as 15. As a result, any family with a kid who announces she is trans —whether encouraged by peers or social media or an activist educator, or accompanied by serious mental health co-morbidities—is hurled into crisis. The only thing parents know for certain is that a quick medical transition will be encouraged by virtually every adult she encounters. Far less certain is whether the family can do anything to stop it.

All across this country, loving parents now find their custody threatened whenever they greet their teen daughter’s gender identity announcement with anything other than hosannas. Teachers, social workers, and therapists are quick to call social services, on the grounds that anything other than immediate “affirmation” of the new identity is child abuse. Again, I am in touch with many parents in precisely these circumstances, now fighting to retain or regain access to their daughters. Their only sin, in many cases? Dropping their daughter off to a therapist who seemed nice.

Any of these parents would gladly pay a hundred bucks a gallon for unleaded gas to get their daughters to safety. A mom whose teen daughter is suddenly clamoring for “top surgery” would take her chances with COVID in a heartbeat. Hell, she’d sign up for an unmasked tour of the Wuhan Institute for Virology—if she could only shield her children from the people who’d prefer to push gender ideology than do their actual jobs (much less respect the curtilage of a family).

Parents will hold their noses and vote for any politician that gets this right. When you threaten our children, it’s amazing how little we care about Build Back Better.

Pity the politician who doubts that.

Lord Jesus thank you for this author! Shield these kids with dysmorphia. Give them courage to find, discern and RECEIVE truth! Give their parents wisdom, discernment, faith that You are with them and have a good plan for their kids and willing to lead them step by step to health, shalom. Please Lord, stop the captives from spewing more lies and mutilating more young people. THAT is not too hard for You. And do comfort those people who have been wounded by the transgender lies. Please heal their tortured souls with Your salvation Lord.

“Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services that laws and policies preventing care that health care professionals recommend for transgender minors may violate the Constitution and federal law.” Of course that doesn’t apply to anyone who prescribes HCQ or Ivermectin for COVID-19!

It seems this administration is indeed UNDOING this great nation and it’s Bible-based laws that had served it for over two centuries until now. We pray, “He makes the wrath (see Romans 1:18) of men to praise Him, AND THE REMAINDER OF WRATH HE WILL RESTRAIN.”
God truly fulfil Your eternal word!

I decree public outrage over this present administration with the body of Christ stepping up to the plate as the Holy Spirit directs us. Child abuse is being exposed and people are crying out for a course correction in Jesus name. Our government leaders are hearing from us and we are effective in getting their attention to make corrections. The populace is arising and making our elected leaders accountable to us to establish moral laws.

So so so true!
Lord deliver and protect the innocence of our children. They are our most valuable resource. Give parents, grandparents and community members understanding and insights as to what’s happening to our children to rise up in unity and in the power of the Spirit to stand our ground against these schemes of the evil one.

Lord, I pray for Your divine providence for each family that is facing this issue right now. Provide the means necessary for the parent(s) to either be able to remove their child from the school (to either go to another school or homeschool), or to be able to move to another area. Help all those who want to protect their children from the ungodly, evil people.
I also pray that You would open the eyes of the medical and psychiatric community. I do believe that our children are facing these questions because they have been inoculated (vaccines) way too many times over the first five years of their lives. I do believe that these vaccines are one of the main things that are destroying innocent minds and bodies. I pray that someone with enough sense will begin to look into this. Especially for our boys. I know that the vaccines are usually done with aborted FEMALE tissue. Perhaps that is why our boys are more likely to develop autism, ADD, and ADHD. Lord, PLEASE! I PLEAD FOR OUR CHILDREN!!! Give Your godly men and women Your truth, Your discernment and Your strategies to figure out what is going on in our children and how to undo the evils that have been perpetrated on them. We desperately need You! There is nothing that we can do without YOU!!! Please intervene on our behalf! Save our children! In Jesus’ name I pray! Amen!

Breaks my heart how the ideas of children are being molded into accepting filth as mother’s milk. There is so much to answer for but I pray because the bride is still here. Father we are still here. We stand in the gap. We cry out to you in the name of Jesus.. for the sake of these young impressionable children who believe whatever an authority figure says.. give them ears to hear the truth and the ability to discern it from the sea of lies poured on them. And father help our government to turn away from the darkness aimed at destroying the youth of the whole world. We know Lord that if they turned to you and got born again ALL OF THIS damage would heal in such a short time! You can do anything Lord and you still have us here standing in the gap. That MUST be the reason we are still here. Please father move on behalf of your young creation.. these young children who believe what they are told. We ask it in Jesus name. We trust you and we believe in your goodness and power because we are bought with the blood of Jesus. Amen

Isaiah 50:7 Because the Lord GOD helps Me, I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set My face like flint, and I know that I will not be put to shame.
Ezekiel 3:9 Behold, I will make your face as hard as their faces, and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. I will make your forehead like a diamond, harder than flint. Do not be afraid of them or dismayed at their presence, even though they are a rebellious house.”
Hebrews 12: 2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray these individuals supporting such deviance will feel shame. The cumulative shame of Your people here on earth and in Heaven…a life threatening, soul changing shame. I ask this in the Exalted Name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Here again, the language used to discuss this issue is so misleading to put it mildly. “Life saving surgery”? Reality would suggest this is life altering, body destroying, damaging, dangerous, child abusive surgery done on minors – who are not at the age of consent (whatever happened to that standard?) that’s what made sex with a minor a crime – they were not at the “age of consent.” But pre-adolescent children can be given hormones without parents’ knowledge and consent? I used to have to sign “permission slips” every time my children went on a field trip to a museum or whatever, necessitating leaving school grounds during the school day. Those students who didn’t return signed parental permission slips to school before the outing, had to remain at school while the rest of the class went on the trip. And now they can be given drugs and surgery without parents’ consent? The danger is not in refusing to indulge the child in their current wishes, the danger is in letting a child make body and life altering decisions when they are too young to do so. How many times do college students change their majors? Nothing wrong with that – but it points to the fact we continually change our minds about things – but especially as children. This reminds me of the “Salem witch trials” phenomena – a mass hysteria – children are being indoctrinated and led down this path of thinking – when for most, it would not have occurred to them on their own, if left alone – but to be constantly surrounded by and suggested to that if you are unhappy in any way – it must be because you are the wrong gender and a gender reassignment will solve all your problems. What a huge lie! Life is tough, painful and challenging at all ages – we learn from our failures and our hardships. we are not supposed to be happy twenty-four/seven – that’s not real life. Think how often best friends, boyfriends, favorite music etc. changes in childhood (often within twenty-four hours) Teenagers can go from the pit of despair to euphoria and back again quickly and often. But they don’t have body altering surgery every time their feelings change. Until now. How ironic that we are told we are “harming” children if we don’t allow them to take hormones and surgically alter their bodies, when we are actually harming them if we do. Our children are being destroyed body, mind and soul by evil ideologies which those in the media label good and caring and right. Prayers for leaders that will not call evil good and good evil – but will stand up for what is right in God’s eyes. http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com

I’m praying for families and that includes children. If this makes me feel sick at my heart what must our Heavenly Father feel? Our Creator? Jesus give us grace to take back this nation for Your purposes.
