BOSTON (LifeSiteNews) — The CEO of Boston Children’s Hospital reportedly assured employees the hospital “won’t back down” after receiving backlash for performing mutilating transgender surgeries on minors, according to a statement obtained by independent journalist Chris Elston. 

In an update reportedly sent to employees, BCH President and CEO Kevin B. Churchwell, M.D., said the hospital reaffirms its “long-standing commitment to the LGBTQ+ community and to health equity and inclusion.”

We need YOU to be a voice for natural marriage and the constitutional freedom of individual states by SIGNING and SHARING this petition calling on Republican U.S. Senators to oppose the deceitfully named "Respect for Marriage Act!"

Leftist members of Congress have, once again, opted to ignore the myriad of issues facing our country — be it the border crisis, gas prices, inflation, crime, and more — to instead virtue-signal by introducing their radical new bill, the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act," which, among other things, would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act.

And with the radical left continuing its attempts to redefine words, people, and events to better suit their agenda and advance their political narratives, it should come as no surprise that their latest target happens to be natural marriage.

But marriage is not a political tool for the left to manipulate and destroy; it is the key building block of our society, and the primary basis for the safe, responsible upbringing of our children.

Republican members of the U.S. Senate still have a chance to defend natural marriage by stopping this bill from becoming law, but we need to let them know that the American people oppose the left's seemingly never-ending efforts to degrade the sanctity of marriage.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to Republican members of the U.S. Senate, insisting that they vote against the "Respect for Marriage Act" when it comes before them for any form of vote.

The legislation in question, formally filed as H.R.8404 and sponsored by liberal New York Congressman Jerry Nadler, would codify same-sex marriage into federal law, effectively forcing states to recognize any marriage performed in another state regardless of laws on their own books.

It would also fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was signed by President Clinton back in 1996 and formally defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman under federal law.

With the fall of Roe v. Wade back in June, the left's paranoia about losing ground when it comes to their radical social and political agenda has reached a fever pitch, resulting in the ongoing push for the "Respect for Marriage Act," which, if we don't act soon, may well become law...

TIME IS RUNNING OUT: With a 50-50 Senate, the left needs just TEN Republican members to bow to pressure: the mainstream media, Big Tech, Hollywood, and the university system are all fighting against us. With so much pressure against conservatives, we need you to send these Senators a powerful message demanding that they stand strong against the left.

That's why we need your help now.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to Republican U.S. Senators across the country, urging them to stand against the left's attempts to reinvent marriage by opposing the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act" when it comes before them for a vote.

Protect natural marriage! Protect the freedoms of individual states!

Put Republican U.S. Senators on notice and let them know that you're watching closely how they vote on the "Respect for Marriage Act."

Thank you!

“Today, we are living in a highly polarized environment that creates unique challenges,” Churchwell reportedly said, highlighting the work undertaken by the hospital’s Gender Multispecialty Service (GeMS) which works with patients from ages 3 to 25. 

“Time and time again, we’ve seen those with a specific agenda seek to discredit those they disagree with by spreading false information with the intent to mislead,” he said, according to the screenshot.

“We won’t back down in the face of lies, threats, and other forms of intimidation,” the memo reads. Churchwell did not immediately respond to LifeSite’s request for confirmation and clarification.

The statement comes after independent journalist Chris Elston (also known as Billboard Chris) and conservative commentators like Libs of Tik Tok and the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh and Michael Knowles, raised the alarm earlier this month about a series of the since-removed videos promoting the destructive surgeries for young people. 

In the wake of widespread criticism, BCH updated its website to assert that it does not perform transgender genital surgery on young people under the age of 18. Teens ages 15 and up, however, may have breast removal or augmentation with parental consent.

The hospital’s now-deleted video series depicts many doctors outlining the details of radical transgender surgeries. Elston embedded several of the videos in a Monday Twitter thread.

In one clip, which was also highlighted by LifeSiteNews, an obstetrician cheerfully described the brutal procedure of ripping out the uterus and other female reproductive organs through a so-called “gender-affirming hysterectomy.”

In another video produced by BCH, a doctor describes the procedure for castrating and mutilating males to make them appear more like females.

BCH states it follows guidance from The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) “to surgically treat” transgender people. In June, WPATH released its updated guidance lowering the recommended minimum ages for specific transgender surgeries, including suggesting that girls can have their wombs removed at 17 and boys can be castrated and mutilated at 15. It’s unclear whether BCH will adapt its minimum age limit to align with WPATH.

In another BCH video highlighted by Elston, a medical doctor says some children seem to “know” they are in the wrong body “as early as the womb.” 

Yet another clip shows a doctor explaining that parents can know their young child is transgender by observing that the little boy or girl is playing with “opposite-gender” toys, attempting to or refusing to urinate standing up, or trying on the clothing of the opposite sex.

Arguments that children must be transgender if they play with or are interested in things corresponding to the opposite sex have been sharply criticized by those outside the radical transgender movement.

Last week, German developmental biologist and Nobel laureate Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard argued that that allowing children to “change their gender” is “madness,” noting that she, like “many girls,” had been ”unhappy in puberty” and briefly wished she was a boy.

“There are people who want to change their gender, but they can’t do it … People retain their gender for life,” she said, calling claims that people can become the opposite sex “nonsense.”

On Tuesday, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ re-election campaign director Christina Pushaw reacted to the argument that children who engage in non-gender-conforming behaviors must therefore be transgender.

“[I]t’s confusing that the same progressives who claim to be so against stereotypical gender roles, are telling young girls with stereotypically ‘boyish’ interests and style that they might actually be boys,” she remarked.
