Pediatrician: ‘Transgender Ideology’ Causes ‘Child Abuse’

“Transgender ideology” is producing “large-scale child abuse,” asserts Dr. Michelle Cretella, a pediatrician and President of the American College of Pediatricians.

“Transgender ideology … is intruding into the lives of the most innocent among us — children — and with the apparent growing support of the professional medical community,” writes Cretella at The Daily Signal.

Medical professionals rejecting left-wing corruption of medicine are often professionally punished by a growing adherence to leftism across the medical field, claims Cretella:

Professionals who dare to question the unscientific party line of supporting gender transition therapy will find themselves maligned and out of a job.

The mental illness of transgenderism is now often being viewed as normal and healthy by medical professionals, writes Cretella:

I have witnessed an upending of the medical consensus on the nature of gender identity. What doctors once treated as a mental illness, the medical community now largely affirms and even promotes as normal.

Cretella joined Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson on Monday, expositing on her assessment of “transgender ideology” within the medical field:

Sex is hardwired from before birth, and it cannot change, and that’s why we actually called this child abuse. By feeding children and families these lies (about gender fluidity and the safety of “transition-affirming protocols”), children are having their normal psychological development interrupted, they’re being put on the puberty blockers which essentially castrates them chemically, followed by surgical mutilation later on. This is child abuse. This is not health care.
