On Tuesday, the Biden administration filed an appeal aiming to require doctors and hospitals to carry out possibly harmful transgender-related procedures and surgeries, even if they are unwilling to.
A North Dakota judge in January sided with Catholic hospitals in striking down the Biden administration’s move to punish doctors who don’t perform transgender-related procedures for “sex discrimination,” according to Luke Goodrich, Vice President and senior counsel at BECKET Law. The administration filed an appeal on Tuesday.
Goodrich took to Twitter to outline his arguments about the administration’s move, which he vehemently opposes:
The plaintiffs are religious doctors, hospitals, and clinics who joyfully serve ALL patients regardless of sex or gender identity. They routinely provide top-notch care to transgender patients for everything from cancer to the common cold.
They also provide millions of dollars in free and low-cost care to the elderly, poor, and underserved–care that is jeopardized by the government’s attempt to punish them with multi-million dollar penalties.
The Transgender Mandate not only threatens religious doctors and hospitals. It also threatens patients, as there is ample evidence that certain gender transition procedures can be deeply harmful.
Multiple federal courts have reached the same conclusion: “There is no medical consensus that sex reassignment surgery is a necessary or even effective treatment for gender dysphoria.” Gibson v. Collier, 920 F.3d 212, 223 (5th Cir. 2019).
The government’s own doctors during the Obama Admin agreed: “Based on a thorough review of the clinical evidence…there is not enough evidence to determine whether gender reassignment surgery improves health outcomes for [patients] with gender dysphoria.
And just weeks ago, a study commissioned by NHS England found “very low” evidence for the effectiveness of “puberty blockers” and cross-sex hormones.
The Biden Admin shouldn’t have appealed. But we look forward to another ruling that protects patients, aligns with current medical research, and ensures doctors aren’t forced to violate their religious beliefs and professional medical judgment.

‘Men. Can’t. Get. Pregnant.’ a fight for truth, not dangerous woke agenda
“Men. Can’t. Get. Pregnant.”
It seems logical but logic is a rarity in our world, where even physicians are willing to push fantasy ideology instead of science.
That’s what happened during a House hearing Thursday, when Dr. Bhavik Kumar, medical director for primary and trans care at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, told lawmakers under questioning from Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-GA, “men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”
Men cannot become pregnant. It’s a dangerous lie.
It is not based on science and wishing it is true doesn’t make it true. It defy’s common sense. Just decades ago making that statement would have been met with laughter or deep concern for the mental health status of the person who made it. Why? Because of science and common sense.
Human reproduction and our sex is determined by sex chromosomes, which are XX for females, and XY for males. Those chromosomes also give us distinctly different appearances as well, no matter what a human being wishes they could be. And yes, there are some people born with ambiguous genitalia, meaning they have both and the Mayo Clinic goes into great detail about this disorder.
However, don’t let common sense stop those who want to make the world believe – especially our young children – that is possible for men to have babies.
What is stunning is that many doctors, like Kumar, have no problem propagating this lie to the public. They are establishing a narrative that is not fact based, scientific or possible. When Clyde questioned Kumar at the House hearing, which was called by Democrat to focus on how restricting abortions can harm patients, he exposed the very bizarre reality we live in.
The hearing appeared to go off the rails after Clyde’s questioning. I’m grateful it did. Why? Because we need to understand that doctors like Kumar, as well as many special interest groups, lawmakers and teachers in our children’s lives and in their classrooms are consistently preaching a woke agenda to push narratives that contradict science, parental rights and reality. Planned Parenthood is a perfect example of these lies and Kumar its general charged with transgender rights is more than happy to push them.
This false agenda devalues human life and it is attempting to take away our identity. I believe its goal is one of social transformation unlike we’ve ever seen in history. Anyone who questions this bizarre ideological narrative is ostracized or labeled intolerant. The fear that one may be seen as intolerant keeps most people from speaking up even when the lie is blatant and absurd.
Sadly, there are too many adults spouting lies. Questioning the lie is enough to get the leftist media machine to swing into high gear – where those who question the lie are censored, banned or public chastised by the radical liberals.
What’s more bizarre is that highly educated doctors that are desperate to be seen as inclusive, or who are themselves truly ideological in their thinking, have no problem ignoring science to push a false ideological narrative.
Even they struggle to explain these bizarre beliefs.
For example, Mariel Young, Phd, said in a tweet in 2021 that “Cis women are people. Trans men are people. Non-binary people are people. Even though most pregnant people are probably cis women, it costs me nothing to acknowledge that others can be pregnant too. And women are in fact people, so…”

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh is doing phenomenal work exposing the very real dangers many children face when confronted by these extremist sexual gender beliefs and dysphoria. Many of these dangers are pushed on susceptible children by adults who have joined the gender dysphoria cult and some who are bragging about the money that can be made with these evasive permanent surgeries, like Walsh exposed in his recent documentary ‘……’
Walsh is exposing that reality behind the extremist ideology.
Walsh’s exposé on Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) transgender treatment on minors, was groundbreaking and shocking. On October 21, Walsh will “be holding a rally at the Tennessee state capitol in Nashville to push for the end of “child mutilation” in the state.”
I’m grateful that Rep. Clyde, Walsh and many others are standing up to the radical left and these very dangerous ideologies. More importantly exposing them to the public. But now each one of us needs to do the same. If we don’t expose the truth and do what’s needed to save our children, our nation and in fact, science – we will only have ourselves to blame when lies becomes the accepted normal.
Join us on October 21 at the state capitol as we rally to end child mutilation across the state. We are going to put a stop to gender ideology’s assault on our children. Come and be a part of the movement.
