(FreedomBeacon.com)- Last week, Jamie Reed penned an article in Bari Weiss’ “Free Press,” talking about her experience as a case manager at the Washington University Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. In the piece, she explained her role in figuring out why doctors were rushing to prescribe irreversible operations on children who came in with gender dysphoria.
Reed explains that she was subsequently fired when she began to ask too many questions but continues to speak out against the abuse. She has come out to say that no reliable studies are backing up the doctors’ claims that children who undergo live-changing surgeries and “gender-affirming care” are “better than their peers.”
As the information about the hospital’s practices is uncovered, Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey is launching an investigation. Bailey said that it is his priority to make sure that children in the state are kept safe, according to a press release.
“We have received disturbing allegations that individuals at the Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital have been harming hundreds of children each year,” Bailey said, noting the experimental drugs part of the “gender-affirming care” given to children.
The consequences of these drugs and operations include children who have reported experiencing infertility, vaginal lacerations, and liver toxicity. Reed claims that the children and their parents were not properly informed of the side effects of taking these medications. In another instance, one young woman had asked for her breasts back after receiving a mastectomy.
Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley also pledged his support to launch an investigation into the practices, according to The Daily Caller. He called it “a sickening account of forced sterilization and child abuse.” He noted that the hospital receives taxpayer dollars.
The doctors at the transgender clinic allegedly viewed themselves as the informed decision-makers when it came to their children, sometimes going against the wishes of parents.
