Rachel Levine, that's Biden pic to be one of the top assistant secretaries at HHS was grilled on Capitol Hill yesterday. But it was one exchange that caused a firestorm. Dr. Levine, you have supported both allowing minors to be given hormone blockers to prevent them from going through puberty, as well as surgical destruction of a minor's genitalium. Like surgical mutilation hormonal interruption of puberty can permanently alter and prevent secondary sexual characteristics. The American College of Pediatricians reports that 80 percent to 95 percent of pre-pubertal children with gender dysphoria will experience resolution by late adolescence, if not exposed to medical intervention and social affirmation. Dr. Levine, do you believe that minors are capable of making such a life changing decision is changing one sex? Well, Senator, thank you for your interest in this question. Transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field.
Let's be a little more specific since you evaded the question. Do you support the government intervening to override the parent's consent to give a child puberty blockers, cross sex hormones and or amputation surgery of breasts and genitalia? If confirmed to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health, I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and to talk with you and your staff about the standards of care and the complexity of this field. Let it go into the record that the witness refused to answer the question. I find it ironic that the left that went nuts over hydroxy chloroquine being used possibly for COVID are not alarmed that these hormones are being used off label. Now, for that perfectly reasonable logical, scientifically accurate line of questioning. Senator Rand Paul became public enemy number one over at the other cable.
蕾切尔·莱文昨天在国会山被严厉询问，她是拜登提名为美国卫生和公众服务部的高级助理秘书之一。但有一次交流引起了一场风暴 。莱文医生，你既支持给未成年人注射激素阻滞剂以阻止他们进入青春期，也支持对未成年人生殖器进行手术性破坏 。像外科手术切除术一样，青春期荷尔蒙的中断可以永久性地改变和阻止第二性征 。ACPED报告称，如果不接受医疗干预和社会肯定，80%到95%的青春期前患有性别焦虑症的儿童会在青春期后期得到解决 。莱文医生，你认为未成年人有能力做出这样一个改变生活的决定，那就是改变一个性别吗？参议员，谢谢你关心这个问题 。变性医学是一个非常复杂和微妙的领域 。
