What happened at Boston Children’s Hospital this week?
Christina Buttons of the Post Millenial broke the story about Boston Children's Hospital encouraging surgical, pharmaceutical 'gender transition' for minors
Boston Children’s Hospital boasts of having the first pediatric gender-affirming surgery center in the country.
Boston Children’s Hospital's YouTube channel has a library of 90 videos upbeat promoting genital, chest, and face surgeries. The playlist has since been taken down and videos set to private.
For children 9 and under, the hospital helps facilitate a social transition that prepares them for individualized treatment plans that can include puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and chest surgeries. Chest surgeries are available at age 15.
Brandy Zadrozny and Phil McCausland NBC news reported that Boston Childeren’s Hospital does not perform genital surgeries on minors
BCH released a statement claiming increased threats from far-right activists, that it was coordinating with law enforcement to ensure the safety of the hospital and it’s employees, and denying they ever conducted genital surgery or mastectomies on minors.
However, in a published research paper that BCH participated in and on their website, it stated that patients had to be a least 17 years old. After the videos began to go viral the hospital updated its website to reflect offering treatment to only 18 and over.
In that same study, it is reported that between 2017- 2020 65 double mastectomies were performed on minors
Also, the account known as Billboard Chris reported that they received a message from a BCH employee that contradicted that claim.
I just received this message from my source at Boston Children’s Hospital, who shared with me the original email to all employees.
“They have told us nothing about increasing security. They also lied repeatedly about the age for procedures.”https://t.co/JSFeD5aA8v pic.twitter.com/J24nO9pffU
