Gov. Bill Lee Calls For Investigation Of Vanderbilt’s Pediatric Transgender Clinic Following Matt Walsh Revelation | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Tennessee Republican Governor Bill Lee has called for an investigation of the Pediatric Transgender Clinic at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) after shocking videos posted by Matt Walsh detailed a doctor's promotion of "big money maker" transgender surgeries.

    The videos obtained by Walsh also show apparent threats made against medical professionals at VUMC if they objected to the procedures, even for religious reasons.

    "The 'pediatric transgender clinic' at Vanderbilt University Medical Center raises serious moral, ethical and legal concerns," Lee said in a statement to The Daily Wire. "We should not allow permanent, life-altering decisions that hurt children or policies that suppress religious liberties, all for the purpose of financial gain. We have to protect Tennessee children, and this warrants a thorough investigation."

    Lee's comments follow a detailed thread from Daily Wire host and author Matt Walsh on the medical center. In one of the video's shared by Walsh, VUMC Clinic for Transgender Health's Dr. Shayne Sebold Taylor admitted, "These surgeries are labor intensive, they require a lot of follow-ups, they require a lot of our time, and they make money," she emphasized. "They make money for the hospital."

    At another Medicine Grand Rounds lecture, staffers are warned by Vanderbilt health law expert Ellen Wright Clayton that any "conscientious objection" will be met with "consequences," and are told they probably shouldn't be working at VUMC if they don't want to participate in the trans surgeries, which include minor patients.

    "If you are going to assert conscientious objection, you have to realize that that is problematic," Clayton said. "You are doing something to another person, and you are not paying the cost for your belief. I think that is a ... real issue."

    Clayton said conscientious objectors would be "accommodated," but said these people have to find someone else to carry out such surgeries for them.

    "I just want you to take home that saying that you're not going to do something because of your conscientious - because of your religious beliefs, is not without consequences, and should not be without consequences," she stressed. "And I just want to put that out there."

    "We are given an enormous - if you don't want to do this kind of work, don't work at Vanderbilt," she stressed.

    The medical center has also detailed transgender surgeries and treatments available for minors. Video from the Vanderbilt Psychiatry YouTube channel reveals the medical center "explicitly [admits] that they will give and have given irreversible hormone drugs to children as young as 13," Walsh wrote.

    "So, let's review. Vanderbilt got into the gender transition game admittedly in large part because it is very financially profitable," he closed the Twitter thread. "They then threatened any staff members who objected, and enlisted a gang of trans activists to act as surveillance in order to force compliance."

    "They now castrate, sterilize, and mutilate minors as well as adults, while apparently taking steps to hide this activity from the public view," Walsh added. "This is what 'health care' has become in modern America."

    The Daily Wire reached out to Vanderbilt, but it did not provide a comment.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
