Boston Children’s Hospital Was Reimbursed $1.4M In Taxpayer Dollars For ‘Gender Transition Services’: Report | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Boston Children's Hospital, one of the leading medical establishments in the U.S. encouraging life-altering gender procedures for minors, was reimbursed for the controversial treatments with taxpayer dollars.

    From January 2015 to May 2023, Massachusetts reimbursed the Boston Children's Hospital (BCH) $1.4 million for so-called "gender transition services," according to documents obtained by The Daily Caller. The hospital, which boasts of having the first pediatric transgender surgery center in the country, has performed hundreds of gender surgeries on children since 2017 and has offered phalloplasties for 18-year-old boys and vaginoplasties for girls as young as 17, according to scrubbed pages of its website.

    The Daily Caller reported that the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services said it paid BCH $1.4 million for "Gender transition services (i.e., physician's services, inpatient and outpatient, hospital services, surgical services, prescribed drugs, therapies, etc.)" between January 2015 and May 2023.

    Last year, BCH was criticized for offering on its website a "full suite of surgical options for transgender teens." After public backlash to advertising its gender surgeries for children, BCH deleted a video from its YouTube channel that showed a doctor speaking positively about removing a uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix for an elective "gender affirming hysterectomy."

    BCH has also promoted breast augmentations or double mastectomies in the name of gender affirmation for girls as young as 15. According to the National Institutes of Health, BCH performed 204 "gender affirmation" surgeries between 2017 and 2020, The Daily Caller reported. Those operations included 65 chest surgeries, with the youngest patient being 15 years old.

    Earlier this year, Oren Ganor, the co-director of BCH's Center for Gender Surgery, co-wrote an article that called for increasing training for gender surgeries.

    "With certain states restricting gender-affirming surgeries, residency programs in states with more favorable regulations must ensure they increase training efforts to accommodate increased caseloads of gender-affirming surgeries that will likely result," wrote Ganor along with Harvard graduate Shawheen Rezaei.

    BCH has not responded to a request for comment.

    As leftists continue to push for gender surgeries to be readily available to minors, many taxpayers are now funding the life-altering procedures. Last week, The Daily Wire reported that Pennsylvania also spent nearly $20 million in tax dollars on puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and gender surgeries for children between 2015 and July of this year. The money was provided through Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), according to records obtained by the Pennsylvania Family Institute.

    Florida recently took action to stop Medicaid providers from using taxpayer dollars for transgender procedures. In August, the Sunshine State fined five Medicaid insurers for violating state law against using taxpayer funds to provide coverage for transgender procedures.

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?
