Leftist Activist Organization Allies With Big Pharma To Push Transgenderism In Hospitals | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A leftist activist organization teamed up with big pharma to push transgender ideology in American hospitals, a recent report revealed.

    The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a leftist organization that supports transgenderism, created a scorecard, called the "Healthcare Equality Index," which measures "healthcare facilities' policies and practices related to the equity and inclusion of their LGBTQ+ patients, visitors and employees."

    HRC goes on to add that "The HEI 2022 evaluates more than 2,200 healthcare facilities nationwide." The report discussed a number of different factors, including hospitals' approach to gender transition attempts and their support for "pro-equality legislation."

    "The Healthcare Equality Index 2022 asked participants a series of questions about LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices," HRC noted. The report was split up into four criteria, including "Patient and Community Engagement" and "Employee Benefits and Policies," which includes "Transgender-Inclusive Health Insurance."

    There's also "Patient Services and Support," which includes "LGBTQ+ Patient Services and Support" and "Transgender Patient Services and Support."

    A detailed criteria list also explains that, in order to receive a higher score, healthcare facilities should offer "certain transgender-specific clinical services" and should also have "an externally promoted multidisciplinary gender clinic for either adults and/or youth."

    A hospital can also lose points if it engages in an activity that HRC considers to be "discriminatory." Both UT Southwestern Medical Center and Children's Health in Dallas lost points last year after they stopped administering puberty blockers to children experiencing gender dysphoria. The HRC decried the move as "discrimination against transgender youth."

    HRC notes that their Healthcare Equality Index "was funded in part by grants from PhRMA and Pfizer, Inc." PhRMA, the Pharmaceutical Researcher and Manufacturers of America, is the trade association that "represents the nation's leading biopharmaceutical research companies."

    Brian Newell, a spokesperson for PhRMA, said in a statement that the trade association "was not involved in the development" of the scoring system, also adding "Our work with the [Human Rights Campaign] has primarily focused on issues impacting patient access and affordability, including for those with HIV."

    Beth Rempe, who worked as a nurse at Washington DC's Children's National Hospital in 2019, explained how transgenderism was pushed at the institution. Rempe noted that doctors started to wear transgender pride flag pins while nurses began asking children their preferred pronouns.

    Meanwhile, a mandatory training taught staff how to be "supportive and affirming in working with trans people."

    "I was concerned that I would eventually have to administer puberty blockers and hormones, not just use the pronouns," Rempe remarked before going on to add "I kept finding myself in situations I wasn't comfortable with ethically."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
