(LifeSiteNews) — A woman posing as a 14 year-old girl caught a New York City “healthcare provider” on tape offering her, a presumed minor, cross-sex hormones without parental consent.
A recording shared to Twitter on Monday by the nonprofit group “Gays Against Groomers” shows how an anonymous contact of the group went undercover as a girl named “Kelly” asking for transgender “transition” services without parental consent.
“Kelly” first reached out to Planned Parenthood to request help with a gender “transition” but was denied, since the organization does not offer such services to minors, a company employee can be heard explaining over the phone.
However, as a potential alternative provider of sex “transition” services for minors, the Planned Parenthood worker provided “Kelly” the phone number of the New York City-based Community Healthcare Network (CHN).
Once on the phone with Brian from CHN, “Kelly” heavily emphasized in her story that she was “only 14” and “trans,” and that her parents were upset by her confession to being “trans.” While she “needed help,” she did not specify exactly what she wanted.
“If you’re looking for a primary care provider and looking for treatment, like hormonal therapy [sic], we can do that,” Brian responded, adding that they also provide “mental health services.”
When Kelly asked how she would go about scheduling an appointment so her parents “wouldn’t find out,” Brian proposed that they use “Code Cindy,” a practice by which contact from CHN is directed to the patient alone. He explained that they would refrain from sending mail to her home and would only call her personal phone.
Brian pointed out, while discussing her “concern” to keep the hormones a secret from her parents, “Since you’re not getting any mail to your address, there should be no reason for them to ever know that you’re getting services from us.”
“We discovered that ‘CODE CINDY’ is a tag that @CHNNYC puts on minor’s files to be sure their parents never find out they are seeking hormones and other ‘gender affirming’ drugs/procedures. Truly disturbing. No parent should ever be kept in the dark about such things,” the “Gays Against Groomers” twitter account remarked in a comment on the video.
The twitter thread did not point out that sterility is the result of the use of puberty blockers followed by cross-sex hormones, which are admittedly taken in succession the “vast majority” of the time by minors who wish to “change” their sex.
“You can’t get your nose pierced at the mall w/o parental consent but Code Cindy here allows minors to receive trans medical Frankenscience treatments right under their parents noses w/ zero notification. This is AWFUL and needs to be criminalized in every state. No exceptions,” said Twitter user Milenka in response to the video.
“THIS is exactly what makes me side with the right on this issue,” commented Victor Gonzalez. “Bypassing parental consent for medical procedures and drugs should be a criminal offense and that seems to be the goal of many on the left.”
CHN is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that aims to provide healthcare services “for everyone,” regardless of ability to pay.
According to New York law, “Medical, dental, health and hospital services may be rendered to persons of any age without the consent of a parent or legal guardian when, in the physician’s judgment an emergency exists and the person is in immediate need of medical attention and an attempt to secure consent would result in delay of treatment which would increase the risk to the person’s life or health.”
NYCLU has noted that there is no New York law that permits minors to consent to “trans” medical interventions, including hormones and surgeries.
A portion of the left has been actively pushing for the ability of minors to receive sterilizing hormones without parental consent, such as in Maine, where Democratic Gov. Janet Mills recently signed into law a measure that will allow minors to do just that.
As LifeSiteNews has reported, in addition to asserting a false reality that one’s sex can be changed, transgender surgeries and drugs have been linked to permanent physical and psychological damage, including cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, cancer, stroke, infertility, and suicidality. Further, studies indicate that over 80 percent of children suffering from gender dysphoria outgrow it on their own by late adolescence without surgical or pharmaceutical intervention.
