Renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson has called on his fellow doctors across America to stop giving life-altering sex-change treatments to children.
Carson is urging doctors everywhere to stand up and refuse to administer “woke” sex-change surgeries or prescribe chemical castration drugs to minors.
President Joe Biden, his administration, and the Democrats are advocating for children to receive irreversible sex-change treatments.
The Left often describes such life-change treatments as “gender-affirming care.”
However, they often fail to explain that “gender-affirming care” includes surgically removing or permanently altering a child’s genitals.
Aside from the removal of healthy sex tissue, gender treatments include powerful puberty-blocking drugs that result in chemical castration.
Many hospitals and states across the country support the treatments while others have made moves to set restrictions for minors.
During an interview with the Daily Caller, Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, called on his fellow medical professionals to take a stand against such treatments.
“If you were working at a hospital and your hospital approached you and asked you to perform sex-change treatment on a minor, what would you do?” the Caller asked.
“I would absolutely, adamantly refuse, in all circumstances,” Carson said.
“There’s a reason why they’re called minors.
“They don’t really know a lot of things, and they learn over the course of time as they become mature,” he added.
“I suspect that in the future we will look back on this period of transgenderism and say, ‘How could those people be so foolish?’”
Carson was then asked what he would advise doctors who are currently practicing medicine.
“I would strongly recommend to doctors who currently practice that they remember the Hippocratic Oath and that they first do no harm,” the former presidential candidate said.
“And that they recognize that they’re expected to lead out in this area, and not be followers, and not be sheeple.
“But lead out, and to help people understand that children are in the process of maturation.”
“What little girl hasn’t wanted to climb trees like girls or put on their father’s tool belt?” Carson added
“What little boy hasn’t had the curiosity to put his foot in his mother’s high heel?
“Does that mean that they want to change their sex? Some people seem to think so.”
He stressed again that children are in the state of “maturation” and shouldn’t be able to make such important decisions.
In October, a poll released by Summit Ministries in conjunction with McLaughlin and Associates revealed that a majority of Americans, 65%, believe the transgender movement has gone too far in recommending minors get sex-change treatment.
Only 21% of respondents said that the movement had not gone too far in its sex-change treatment recommendations.
