Dr. Rachel Levine, President Joe Biden’s pick for Assistant Secretary of Health at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is under fire for advocating for sex changes in prepubescent children.
According to The National Pulse, Levine has given lectures since at least 2012 on how to perform sex changes and gender conversion therapy on children.
According to Levine, children should be able to choose their own gender and has advised parents to “try not to force them one way or other.”
At a 2017 speech at Franklin & Marshall College, Levine said children are aware of what gender they want to be around the age of five or six.
Levine suggested puberty blockers and and cross-gender hormone injections for gender non-conforming young adolescents.
According to the article, Levine has expressed doubts about the “controversial” requirement that patients receive psychological evaluations before undergoing drastic medical regimens.
In 2017, Levine described the two-step process for for gender-dysphoric adolescents. Youth are first prescribed puberty-blockers during the first stages of puberty. After counseling, cross-gender hormones are introduced between the ages of 14 and 16. Then, around age 18, the patient may undergo surgery. However, Levine noted that there are sometimes exceptions. In certain instances, Levine has said, surgical procedures may be performed on patients under the age of 18.
Levine went on to say that doctors may discard the two-step process and “accelerate” the process when dealing with “street kids,” who may be tempted to buy hormones off the street. In these cases, Levine said, doctors may skip the blockers altogether and go straight to cross-gender hormones, likely at ages even younger than the 14-16 range. This is condemned by most medical practitioners.
The National Pulse is calling Levine unfit for her role as Biden’s Assistant Secretary of Health and is asking for the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee to press Levine, and other Biden nominees to HHS, about their support for such radical proposals.

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation
In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.
The charges against Hunter Biden include:
• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm
• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer
•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance
According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.
Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.
The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.
Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.
Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
