I am Los Angeles personal injury attorney Michael Ehline. I have extensive experience fighting large Fortune 500 companies. I am a champion of parental rights and small government and have won millions for my clients since 2005. At the outset, the vast majority of pediatric ethicists believe adolescent brain development dictates that adolescents should never be allowed to make independent decisions about life-altering medical treatments. Despite what child groomers think, children will never have the capacity to refuse or accept “life-sustaining treatment.” (NY Times.)
Because of this, a child can never consent to mutilation or endocrine destruction, potentially leaving a child in the awkward position of suing their parent, in this case, almost always the divorced, single mother and not the father. Anecdotally, many parents have wondered why it is that so many single moms bring their children to Pride events.
Why Do Child Abusers Target Single Mothers?
The government, especially California, offers welfare, food stamps, cell phones and other benefits to their single parent voters. Similar to the church, the state offers to take care of you, if you in turn support the state. If you were a pedophile, a job with Child Protective Services, a school or other govt agency would be a home run.
“Pedophiles are usually friendly and charming. They tend to gravitate toward areas that put them in close contact with children (family, school, church, sports, etc.). Children of single mothers are particularly vulnerable because pedophiles often cozy up to Mom in order to get close to children who need a father figure.”https://www.lubbockonline.com/story/lifestyle/columns/2011/03/09/annie-sexual-predators-often-prey-single-mothers-get-closer-children/15230197007/
Child molesters likely target single mothers for several reasons, although it’s important to note that not all child molesters specifically target single mothers.
Here are some factors:
- Vulnerability: Single mothers may be perceived as more vulnerable or isolated due to the absence of a partner or co-parent who could provide additional support or protection. Child molesters may exploit this vulnerability to gain access to the child.
- Lack of supervision: Single mothers often have multiple responsibilities, could be worried about food stamps, Section 8 Housing, etc., and may have limited time to supervise their children constantly. Child molesters and corrupt CDC employees may see this as an opportunity to exploit the lack of supervision and engage in abusive behavior.
- Emotional support: Child molesters sometimes exploit the emotional needs of both the child and the mother. They may take advantage of the mother’s desire for emotional connection or support, gaining their trust and then using that access to groom and abuse the child.
- Financial stress: Single mothers may face financial challenges, and child molesters may attempt to exploit these difficulties by offering financial assistance or gifts to the family. California offers all kinds of goodies and lots of attention for moms who agree to mutilate their kids. This can create a power dynamic where the abuser gains control over the family and uses it to manipulate and abuse the child.
- Isolation: Single mothers may experience social isolation, which can result in limited support networks and fewer opportunities for others to notice and intervene in cases of abuse. Child molesters may exploit this isolation to maintain secrecy and control over their abusive behavior.
Concerned parents argue that many public school teachers (many of whom are trained Marxists) capitalize on this confusion to get the birth mother on board for surgeries and expensive hormone treatments.
Black Father Claims Son Forced to Wear Dress at School – Video
In this Twitter video, a concerned black parent exposes that school teachers secretly FORCED his son to wear a dress! Teachers claim that gender dysphoria is a phenomenon characterized by feelings of discomfort or distress that can arise when an individual’s gender identity differs from the sex they were assigned at birth or the physical characteristics associated with their assigned sex, even libido.
Parents complain that many educators were taught in their liberal universities (UCLA, USC, SDSU, etc.) that school teachers and not parents must PROTECT kids by keeping it a “secret.”

At issue here is parents’ and grown children’s rights to sue a doctor or the state for brainwashing and mutilating kids when they were too young to form the legal consent needed to make such a choice. As a quick example, in California, having sex with a kindergartner is statutory rape with no defenses. But lawmakers have decided mutilating a child’s genitalia is “care.”
“I’m a Former Teacher. Here’s How Your Children Are Getting Indoctrinated by Leftist Ideology.” (Heritage.)
Parents say this is “Orwellian,” many are pulling their kids out of public schools and fleeing the state.
Because one side is arguing that some school teachers are engaged in child abuse and chemical castration and are likely perverted rapists as well, this article breaks down the arguments of the state. We also break down the statements by the parents in a non-biased manner, subject to peer review.
“…teachers are “inclined” to pedophilia and that children are being “groomed” for sexual abuse.” “Teachers are inclined, particularly men because men are predators, to pedophilia.” (David Mamet, Rolling Stone. )
Individuals who identify as transgender or gender-diverse may encounter episodes of gender dysphoria throughout their lives. However, it is essential to note that not all transgender and gender-diverse individuals experience gender dysphoria, and some may feel content with their bodies and gender identity, whether or not they pursue medical interventions to remove their breasts, fabricate a penis from their forearm, use permanently altering sex hormones. On the progressive side, their experts argue that: “… access to hormone therapy in early adolescence was associated with a 60 percent reduction in suicidality in the past year and that access in late adolescence was associated with a 50 percent reduction.” (Scientific American.)
Is Gender Dysphoria a Mental Illness?
Under the ADA, gender dysphoria is a “mental impairment.” In the age of overregulation, tax-funded treatments are one of the few ways to get money besides by getting a Big Pharma gig. To get tax funds for genital mutilation and endocrine destruction (aka “gender-affirming care”), politicians and courts had to first classify voyeurism and fetishes as mental illnesses under the ADA. This was hard to do, as they are excluded explicitly as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities of such individual.”
But a very progressive court of first impression decided that despite the fact “transvestism, transsexualism, pedophilia, exhibitionism, voyeurism, gender identity disorders not resulting from physical impairments or other sexual behavior disorders,” the terms “gender dysphoria” canceled out the original intent it not be treated as a covered mental illness. (See Williams v. Kincaid holding that individuals with “gender dysphoria” may be entitled to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protections. (aka tax dollars for steroids, surgery, and counseling.)
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association, includes a diagnostic category for gender dysphoria. This diagnosis aims to facilitate access to appropriate healthcare and effective treatments for individuals experiencing gender dysphoria. It is worth mentioning that the diagnosis focuses on addressing the discomfort or distress associated with gender dysphoria rather than pathologizing or invalidating an individual’s gender identity. The ADA was intended to apply to consenting adults.
But many teachers’ unions, in particular LAUSD administrators and school psychiatrists in California, along with Senator Scott Wiener, have been pushing hard to provide tax-funded gender-affirming care and even endocrine and hormone alteration in pubescent and pre-pubescent children, including kindergartners. California also declared itself a sanctuary State for children in other states who want to escape the tyranny of their parents and have sex change surgery.
The physician’s unions in California’s almost non-existent medical malpractice protections for patients present an excellent opportunity for doctors to make HUGE money off of Obamacare and Welfare and Institutions Code funding. Scott Wiener gets massive campaign funding from these groups, whereas parents are not interested in sending Wiener anything but a ticket back to San Francisco.
The Minor Attracted Person (MAP) and Trans Push in Public Schools and Government
In 2023, Pride rallies more visibly incorporated people carrying Minor Attracted Person (MAP) flags into their parades, but they dispute the similar colors on their Pride flags are pro pedo. That, according to Democrat fact-checkers like Snopes, say, is to support transgenderism. In fact, the flag below is the MAP flag, as illustrated on Wikipedia, here.
As both sides argue, Muslim, Armenian, and Christian parents in Canada and the US finally blew a gasket. Like the straw that broke the camel’s back, parents have been seen battling with groups trying to normalize pedophilia.
Porn in School Libraries is No Right-Wing Conspiracy Fantasy
Public schools have been caught adding pornographic and gay pornography into their libraries for children to see, say parents. I have seen several of these books and can verify this material is, in fact, primarily gay porn, which includes graphic images of genitalia and even instructions on anal sex and oral sex, etc. Some of the library material these school administrators are trying to show children is so disgusting an organization called Parents Against Pornographic Books was created. It’s hard to argue that someone isn’t trying to groom kids when there is so much evidence and the secret nature taken by the school boards.
Child Molesters in Public Schools?
A string of public school teachers, mainly males, has recently been caught engaging in illicit sexual conduct with children, alarming many parents that schools are creating a climate perfect for adult male child abusers. Although 77% of teacher molesters were female and 23% were male from 2020–21.
Although “95% of educator sexual misconduct cases are handled internally and not reported to law enforcement or reported by the media.” (Source.)
So all we really know is that males make up a small portion of teachers but the lion’s share of child rape cases. “Some of the findings correspond with the findings of the criminal justice literature, while others do not. Young, male, and black educators are more likely to offend.” (Source.) According to the US Department of Education, about 5-7% of public school teachers engaged in sexually abusive behavior with their students, comparable to Catholic Priests, during a similar period.
“…the vast majority of sex offenders are regular men, often married or partnered, with 80 percent or more victimizing their own family members with the most likely candidate being a stepfather or older brother abusing a child or teen in the home.” (Source.)
California Makes it Harder to Identify Male Felon Abusers?
Many parents think so. Senator Wiener’s law (SB 145), lowering criminal felony penalties for men who sodomize children, also makes it easier for offenders to keep their names off of Meghan’s List. So it’s no longer mandatory. A politically appointed judge gets to decide the fate of parents or employers wanting to know.
“…judges’ discretion on whether or not to add individuals to the state’s sex offender registry who have committed sodomy with minors.” (Pro Pedo Bill Passes.)
So parents may not even know who this person or educator is who is constantly trying to have secret gay or trans club meetings, etc.
When parents complain, ANTIFA and their allies in the teacher’s union and other democrats complain that parents are engaging in censorship. Biden’s FBI has even been accused of surveilling and harassing parents who are upset about their son or daughter being “groomed” by what parent groups call radical left-wing school officials.
What is the Definition of Child Grooming?
Child grooming refers to the actions taken by an adult or older individual to establish an emotional connection with a child to gain the child’s trust, engage in sexual abuse or exploitation, or other forms of manipulation and harm. Grooming is a gradual process that involves building a relationship with the child, often through manipulation, flattery, gifts, or attention, aiming to exploit the child sexually, emotionally, or physically.
Parents argue this is precisely what activist teachers are doing to their kids, instead of teaching them academics, basically trying to recruit their children into a “rainbow flag sex offender cult.” They say giving their impressionable kids hormones or chemical castration is pure evil.
Teachers counter that parents are just racist bigots or homophobes who must be “silenced.” To them, alteration or modification is woke and “coming out.” Drag Queen library day, where transexual men do modified sex shows for kids, they say, is suitable for kindergarten children, and if necessary, they want the power to take your kids to enforce their “consensus.”
California Says It’s Child Abuse Not To Allow Genital Mutilation and Other “Affirming Care”
A recently amended California bill would add “affirming” the sexual transition of a child to the state’s standard for parental responsibility and child welfare—making any parent who doesn’t affirm transgenderism for their child guilty of abuse under California state law.
Parents argue that Marxist school officials and their allies in Sacramento are trying to brainwash and groom children to think they are gay or trans. Parents say kids are kids and to “Leave the kids alone.” If a kid thinks they are a butterfly, you don’t pump them full of butterfly hormones to satisfy their dysphoria. No matter what, you certainly NEVER affirm dysphoric behavior.
You help teach the child they are male or female (science), and help them accept they will never be the opposite sex, no matter how much they fantasize over this fetish. We know that 94% of kids outgrow this dysphoria by adulthood, which makes many parents wonder why teachers are so hot to get them on hormone therapy or have them castrated SECRETLY. Once these kids reach a level of adult awareness, they may be angry their teachers “groomed” them to sterilize their bodies, amputate penises, virilize their voices, etc.
The Teachers Argue “Affirming Care” Should Be Secret?
In a nutshell, the teachers union position is that kindergarten children are perfectly capable of knowing their gender, and it’s the state’s job to protect these kids from parents. Since they are educators and they have teaching credentials, they know best. Wiener was forced to shelve this proposed legislation last legislative session in light of the mass immigration away from California by parents in the face of this new “anti-parent” climate and accusations of child grooming.
This makes sense because child groomers often encourage secrecy and isolate the child from their support networks, such as family or friends. They may discourage the child from sharing information or engaging in activities that could expose the grooming relationship. But that has not stopped the political partisans who control the California schools from trying to teach transgenderism and create doubt in a child’s sexuality, say parents.
This is the battleground. Parents versus a very far left, very pro, partisan gay, alternative lifestyle promoting California School System. Parents argue this is part of the radical left’s push for population control. They say if it’s not consensual, it is basically forced sterilization.
Meat: What is “Gender Affirming Care”?
“Gender-affirming care” refers to medical and psychological interventions that aim to align an individual’s physical characteristics and gender identity. It involves a range of treatments and procedures to help transgender and gender non-conforming individuals transition to their affirmed gender. The ethical and medical considerations of giving hormones to children are heavily disagreed upon in the scientific community, with the vast consensus of ethical science saying sexual fantasies don’t require major alterations or alteration of a child’s pituitary gland and endocrine system. There is even a risk of increased hormone-dependent cancers and other related sexual function problems, according to the National Cancer Institute. The consensus is that this is not ethical medical treatment.
The specific course of gender-affirming care varies depending on the individual’s needs, preferences, and healthcare provider guidelines. However, some common elements of gender-affirming care include:
Mental Health Support
Transgender individuals often undergo therapy or counseling to explore their gender identity, address any underlying mental health concerns, and receive guidance throughout their transition process.
“The Endocrine Society does not recommend genital surgery for minors.” (Endocrine Society.) Hormone therapy is a primary component of gender-affirming care. First of all, these are not approved as drugs to be used for the so-called “transition.” For example, some are designed to treat advanced prostate cancer. One of the drugs is used to castrate male sex offenders chemically. This makes sense, as sterilization of sexual offenders is the same goal as transitioning a man into looking and sounding more like a female. For individuals transitioning from male to female (MTF), hormone therapy typically involves using estrogen medications to promote feminizing effects such as breast development and redistribution of body fat, which can be achieved using androgen deprivation treatment.
For those transitioning from female to male (FTM), hormone therapy often involves testosterone administration to induce masculinizing effects such as voice deepening and facial hair growth. Another interesting thing to note is that male sex offenders are getting tax-funded partial transitions (not having their penises removed) and getting sent to female prisons, where they impregnate biological female convicts, who, in turn, sue the prison system for being raped. Here is an example of an Illinois prison. Just because these men transition, they are not required to undergo chemical castration (medroxyprogesterone acetate)or even surgical castration, for that matter. (subcapsular orchiectomy, etc.)
Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists or GnRH analogs
Also called luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonists or LHRH analogs, these drugs reduce luteinizing hormone in testicles to produce more testosterone. (Zoladex, Lupron, can induce temporary menopause in females.) In men, your testicles will grow on gonadotropins. This is why bodybuilders take HCG in their off-season to make their testes start producing natural testosterone again. When they are not juicing and giving their receptor sites time to normalize (off steroids), drugs like HCG have a high hormone which is later ignored through the negative feedback loop in the same way anabolics are.
This is what so-called journalists mean when they say the effects are generally reversible once you stop. They describe the GnRH antagonists or LHRH antagonists designed to prevent testosterone production without causing a testosterone flare, not things like removing ovaries. There is no debate. Nothing else they do is reversible once you execute, certainly what they do to biological females. You can’t take back that time God gave your body to develop naturally.
With men and women, testosterone flare-ups, called “roid rage” and even sexual violence can occur (some scientists believe that increased estrogen levels can interact with neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, which help regulate mood and behavior, potentially influencing emotional regulation and impulsivity), as well as hair loss, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high red blood cell count. As noted, anytime you elevate your testosterone, your body will also increase its estrogen to try and find balance. As a result, men can also develop female breast tissue (gynecomastia), and women may require a second type of treatment called an anti-androgen, perhaps including some Nolvadex. This is not stuff kids should be taking, according to virtually all scientists before the election of Joe Biden. Roids are given off-label to older men with lower testosterone levels to help increase sexual performance and sexual desire.
Men over 70 usually have deficient levels of T and low androgens. And they are also given to post-menopausal women with hot flashes to restore their sex drive. They are not something kids should be taking in any amount. Even though these drugs can partially give a girl the appearance of a man, she will always be a biological female, just with tissue manipulated with drugs, or perhaps breast removal surgery, or a surgically created penis with implants to erect it, etc.
The medication will usually be given by injection or implant on your skin. These are the drugs they give girls to make their voices deeper. It will also make them grow facial hair, give them a considerable clitoris, and permanently deepen their voice. Last but not least, it squares out a woman’s jawline in high enough doses, making her look more manly.
Female bodybuilders are often mistaken as men due to the high amounts of Anavar, Winstrol, and other synthetic hormones they take to get a male-level physique. These drugs also have the added benefit of the population control crowd of sterilizing women.
Puberty Blockers – Girls
Puberty blockers, also known as hormone blockers or GnRH agonists, described above, may be prescribed to transgender female adolescents in a non-scientifically proven effort to temporarily delay puberty onset. This allows more time for exploration and decision-making before irreversible physical changes occur. Puberty blockers are NOT reversible, and anytime you mess with a child’s body and endocrine system, you interfere with natural child development using drugs like androgen deprivation therapy (ADT).
Doctors selling tax-funded plastic surgeries point to the “standard of care” as their sales pitch to confuse parents about these drugs. There is no scientific consensus this is good, and hundreds of years of evidence to the opposite, say parents, support the necessity of allowing a child to develop “naturally,” even when individuals experience gender dysphoria during puberty.
For individuals who desire and meet the eligibility criteria, various surgical procedures may be offered as part of gender-affirming care. These procedures include chest reconstruction (mastectomy or breast augmentation), genital reconstruction (vaginoplasty, phalloplasty, metoidioplasty), facial feminization or masculinization surgeries, and other body contouring surgeries.
Voice and Communication Training
Some individuals may undergo voice therapy or coaching to help modify their voice and communication patterns to align with their affirmed gender. It is important to note that the specific drugs and treatment protocols used in gender-affirming care can vary based on individual health needs, age, and medical guidelines.
The administration of hormones typically involves using medications such as estrogen (e.g., estradiol, estradiol valerate) for MTF individuals and testosterone (e.g., testosterone cypionate, testosterone enanthate) for FTM individuals. The dosage, mode of administration (e.g., pills, injections, patches), and monitoring of hormone levels are determined by healthcare professionals experienced in transgender healthcare.

Disturbing Examples of Once Mutilated Minors Suing
Kayla Lovdahl is a compelling example of the profound consequences of undergoing transgender surgery at a young age. Approved for the procedure when she was only 13 years old, Lovdahl couldn’t comprehend the potential lifelong disfigurement and chronic pain she would endure. Now at 18, Lovdahl has enlisted the services of attorney Charles Limandri, who passionately describes the medical team’s actions as “barbaric and cruel,” causing severe physical and emotional harm to his client.
A vital element of the case revolves around Lovdahl’s lack of awareness regarding the statistical reality that nearly half of the transgender surgeries result in serious, life-threatening complications. How could a 13-year-old fully grasp the implications of removing healthy breasts in a female-to-male transition?
When Can A Child Form Consent?
The age at which a child can legally consent varies depending on the jurisdiction and the specific context. Generally, support is associated with understanding and making informed decisions. Here are some general guidelines:
Age of Consent for Sexual Activity
In most countries, including the United States, there is a specific age of consent for engaging in sexual activity. Depending on the jurisdiction, this age varies and can range from 16 to 18 years old. It’s important to note that laws regarding the age of consent may have additional provisions and considerations, such as close-in-age exemptions or different periods for same-sex sexual activity.
In many jurisdictions, minors (individuals under the age of 18) are generally unable to give consent for medical procedures without parental or guardian involvement. However, there are exceptions for specific situations, such as obtaining contraception or seeking treatment for conditions like mental health, substance abuse, or sexually transmitted infections. The age at which a minor can provide medical consent without parental involvement can vary by jurisdiction and specific circumstances.
The terminology used to inform Lovdahl about the surgery, such as “top” and “bottom surgery” failed to convey the potential consequences adequately, as she was wheeled into surgery for what was described as “top surgery.” Lovdahl had never even heard of the term “double mastectomy” Fortunately, she was spared the trauma of “bottom” mutilation.
The lawsuit targets four doctors associated with Oakland-based hospital Kaiser Permanente, alleging medical malpractice and an “indoctrination” process that subjects children to undue influence as part of the current wave of transgender activism.
A crucial aspect of the case pertains to the brief evaluation Lovdahl underwent before authorizing the “injurious” protocols. Following a one-time 75-minute assessment at the age of 12, she was prescribed off-label puberty blockers and potent male hormone drugs, along with approval for surgical options. It is a common complaint among young adults who transitioned as children that they never fully understood the long-term consequences of their actions.
The idealized portrayal of gender reassignment procedures often fails to inform patients about the potential years of chronic pain, the need for additional corrective surgeries, and possible complications. For example, female-to-male patients may face challenges with prosthetic penises that frequently malfunction. On the other hand, male-to-female patients are left with a stump where the penis was formerly situated, having undergone an incision from the rectum to the urethra and prostate to create a new vagina.
Surgeons devote minimal time to explaining the risks of complicated infections, difficulties in urination, and the impact on physical intimacy. Instead, their primary function is to gain the parent and child’s trust, often by showing care, affection, and understanding. They may portray themselves as a friend, mentor, or authority figure. Many patients are blindsided by the pain accompanying multiple incisions altering a complex network of tissues, nerves, and muscles.
Adolescents engage in warm and reassuring discussions with therapists about achieving a happier life through gender reassignment, but these conversations often omit the graphic details and potential complications. Lovdahl has since transitioned back to her assigned birth sex. Instead, tax-paid “therapists” will work to create an emotional bond with the child, manipulating their emotions and making them feel unique or understood. They may exploit vulnerabilities, insecurities, or loneliness because they have a license and the medical board is overtly supporting them in any event. Pharma can’t be sued over vaccine side effects; they feel empowered to carry out their mission.
Some individuals who have transitioned and later detransitioned are stepping forward to share the harsh realities of gender reassignment procedures. Through advocacy work, they willingly expose post-surgical body parts, revealing extensive scarring from skin grafts and severe disfigurement resulting from incomplete “top surgeries.” They often relate back to stories of how their teachers, school counselors and gay campus clubs, etc., tested their boundaries by introducing sexual content, inappropriate conversations, or physical contact disguised as harmless or consensual activities.
While gender confirmation surgeries represent approximately 16% of young individuals with gender dysphoria, this number continues to rise alongside the growing trend of children being introduced to various gender options and their insurance coverage under the ADA. Senator Rand Paul says this is a cash cow for plastic surgeons, activist teachers, psychiatrists, and others with a political and financial agenda.
According to Limandri, children as young as 7, 8, or 9 who express a desire to imitate their favorite superhero’s gender can receive puberty blockers and undergo life-altering surgeries. This marks the first time we witness adults in positions of authority advising children that they are in the wrong body, and by pursuing these procedures, they are courageous and will find greater happiness.
Despite the finality of Lovdahl’s procedure, it fails to address the complex psychological issues she faced as a pre-teen. Her attorney asserts that she was just one of many young patients subjected to a “conveyor belt” of dangerous procedures, which have become standardized care in increasing gender clinics. Given the nature of Pharma selling the drugs and funding the campaigns of politicians like Wiener, parents can’t help but wonder if their kids are being brainwashed and mutilated to make money.
In this context, Limandri asks, “Is there another medical field in which doctors would surgically remove a perfectly healthy body part based solely on a young patient’s wishes?” In a tragic twist, clinical psychologist Susanne Watson, who encouraged Lovdahl to attend LGBTQ+ pride events, disregarded the 12-year-old’s reluctance to participate.
Lovdahl didn’t feel the Pride Watson assumed she would. Watson serves as the clinical director of Kaiser Foundation Hospitals’ Transgender Clinic, located in one of the most liberal regions of the country.
This may explain the immense pressure parents report when deciding to authorize potentially harmful procedures. Many are led to believe they must choose between having a “dead daughter” or a “live so” (or vice versa), creating a strong implication that their child is at high risk of suicide.
Parents from various parts of the country have shared similar accounts of manipulation to persuade them to approve procedures that leave them feeling deeply conflicted.
Emancipation and Mature Minor Doctrine
In some cases, minors who demonstrate maturity and the ability to understand the consequences of their decisions can be granted the legal status of emancipation. I believe these are the only cases where a minor could legally consent. Emancipated minors may have more autonomy and can provide consent for various legal matters, including medical treatments and contracts. The criteria for emancipation vary by jurisdiction.
Minors Can’t Consent Making this the Crime of Forced Chemical Castration
With the ADA providing a vehicle for doctors and Pharma to make money, we see states like California try and force gender-affirming care, vaccines, and a whole gamut of rules, conditions, and regulations on families. Parents are pushing back at child grooming, perhaps not looking at the big picture. If parents don’t do something, it is guaranteed that California will put CPS to work to remove their child from their home and assure your child gets the state indoctrination it needs to make the right choice.
Things Like Advanced Prostate Cancer Drugs Are Not For Kids
We just learned that parents are accusing doctors and teachers of child grooming. They blame teachers for being sexual activists and doctors for being captive to government-funded health care and the need to find ways to bill for new psychological conditions. Parents say child grooming is a serious form of manipulation and exploitation that aims to exploit and harm vulnerable children. Parent rights groups state that forced sterilization is widely recognized as a human rights violation. It involves the involuntary or coercive sterilization of individuals without their informed consent or against their will.
Historically, this practice has targeted specific groups, including people with disabilities, individuals from marginalized communities, and those deemed “unfit” or “undesirable” by the authorities. Parents say population control advocates like Bill Gates and Democrats are behind this push to depopulate the planet.
Costs of “Gender Affirming” Care
A significant majority of patients seeking gender dysphoria care, precisely 75% to 78% of them, opt for hormone treatments. These treatments are typically ongoing for the patient’s lifetime. Although the drugs themselves are not generally costly, the cumulative cost can amount to over $2,000 per year. It’s important to note that specific costs may vary depending on factors such as the type of hormones prescribed, dosage, healthcare provider, insurance coverage, and geographic location.
Bottom Surgery Costs
Undergoing gender reassignment surgeries, such as bottom surgery for genitalia alteration, can come with substantial expenses. The Philadelphia Center for Transgender Surgery estimates the cost at approximately $25,600 for male-to-female patients and about $24,900 for female-to-male patients. However, it’s important to note that these figures are subject to variation, as costs may differ across providers and specific procedures.
Top Surgery Costs
For top surgery, which involves breast augmentation for male-to-female transitions, the cost is typically around $9,000. On the other hand, for female-to-male individuals, top surgery involving mastectomy can range from $7,800 to $10,900, depending on the extent of skin reduction. Additional procedures, such as facial surgery for masculinization ($53,700) or feminization (up to $70,100) and body sculpting surgeries, can further contribute to the overall expenses.
Finding the right health insurance coverage for gender reassignment treatment can be essential in managing the associated expenses. Here are various options and considerations to help minimize costs:
Some employers offer insurance plans that cover specific aspects of gender reassignment treatment. For example, Aetna expanded its coverage to include breast augmentation for patients with gender dysphoria. Checking with your employer’s insurance policy and understanding the extent of coverage and reimbursement options is important.
Large Insurers and Policy Coverage
Major insurance providers typically have detailed lists specifying what is covered under their policies. For instance, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s Medical Policy Manual covers medically necessary surgeries but excludes cosmetic procedures, such as brow lifts, chin implants, and voice modification surgery. Understanding the coverage details and exclusions of your insurance policy is crucial.
Affordable Care Act (ACA) Policies
Individuals can purchase their own health insurance policies through healthcare.gov, often with government subsidies. The ACA prohibits discrimination based on gender identity, and many insurance companies provide coverage for gender reassignment surgery. However, policies can vary by state and plan, and some health plans may still exclude certain services related to sex change or sex reassignment surgery, despite President Biden’s push to make taxpayers cover genital and hormonal mutilation, particularly for children. Carefully review the terms of coverage for each plan to understand what is included or excluded.
Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans provide coverage for medically necessary care, including some gender confirmation procedures, for transgender individuals enrolled in the program. Coverage may vary among Medicare Advantage plans, so consulting an insurance broker can help find the right plan.
Medicaid coverage for gender-affirming care varies across states. While some states explicitly include coverage for gender-affirming care, others may exclude it or have not addressed it explicitly. Understanding your state’s Medicaid policies and potential coverage options is important.
- Personal Loans: Obtaining a loan from a family member, credit union, or bank can help manage expenses. Online personal loans options like LendingClub, LightStream, and Prosper offer convenient comparison opportunities.
- Credit Cards: Paying surgical bills using a low-interest or medical credit card can be an option. It is crucial to compare interest rates and be mindful of missed payments that could significantly increase the total expense.
- Cash Payments: Paying providers and hospitals directly with cash may lead to lower costs compared to insurance-based charges. Obtaining a clear list of tasks in advance is essential, and negotiating directly with providers can help in understanding cash pricing options.
- Crowdfunding: Platforms like GoFundMe and YouCare can be utilized to raise funds for gender reassignment surgeries. Publicizing the fundraising efforts through social media and reaching out to friends and relatives may yield more significant contributions.
- Medical Grants: Certain organizations, such as The Jim Collins Foundation and Point of Pride, offer grants to assist transgender individuals in affording surgery. Researching specialized grants that align with specific needs and communities can be beneficial.
Exploring these options, considering personal circumstances, and seeking guidance from healthcare providers, insurance professionals, and financial advisors can help individuals navigate the financial aspects of gender reassignment surgeries.
Considering the substantial financial commitment involved, it is advisable for individuals considering gender reassignment surgeries to conduct thorough research, consult with healthcare professionals, and carefully assess the potential financial implications. Each person’s situation is unique, and seeking guidance from medical providers and financial advisors can help in navigating these challenges.
Who Can I Sue For Giving Me Gender-Affirming Care as a Child Without Consent?
The potential parties you may consider suing can vary depending on the specific details of your case, local laws, and the healthcare professionals involved.
Possible defendants could include:
This may include doctors, surgeons, psychologists, or other medical practitioners who provided or facilitated the gender-affirming care without obtaining proper consent or conducting a thorough evaluation.
Medical institutions or organizations
If the healthcare professionals who provided the care were employed or affiliated with specific institutions or organizations, you may also consider legal action against them. This could include hospitals, clinics, or transgender health clinics.
In some cases, if gender-affirming care was provided under government programs or policies, there may be a possibility of holding government agencies accountable for the lack of proper consent procedures or oversight.
Other parties involved
Depending on the circumstances, other individuals or organizations may be involved in the decision-making process or the provision of care. For example, parents or legal guardians who consented to the treatment on behalf of a minor child may also be potential defendants.
Please note that the availability of legal remedies and the success of a lawsuit will depend on various factors, including the specific laws of your jurisdiction, the evidence you can provide, and the expertise of your legal representation. Consulting with an attorney will help you understand your legal options and determine the best course of action in your particular situation.
The damages caps or limits on compensation for a minor who sues for medical malpractice or other claims in California can vary depending on the specific circumstances and the type of claim involved. It is important to consult a qualified attorney specializing in medical malpractice or civil rights law in California to get accurate and up-to-date information regarding the damages caps that may apply to your situation.
In California, starting in January 2023:
- If the case doesn’t involve a patient’s death, the limit on non-economic damages (such as pain and suffering) will be $350,000, with an incremental increase over the next 10 years to $750,000. After that, there will be a 2% annual adjustment for inflation.
- If the case involves a patient death, the limit on non-economic damages will be $500,000, with an incremental increase over the next 10 years to $1 million. After that, there will be a 2% annual adjustment for inflation.
These changes are part of California’s Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) reforms. Pain and suffering, or noneconomic damages, are how clients get most of their money. The governor limiting what a patient who had their life destroyed by a corrupt or negligent doctor, psychotherapy quack, politicians have shown yet again, their placing of big Pharma over ordinary people. In a med mal case, the costs must be paid back. And expert witnesses must be used to discuss the standard of care (would a reasonable physician have mutilated a child incapable of forming consent?).
These costs can run into the millions of dollars. Even if you win, will your client get paid? This is something that should go all the way to the Supreme Court. This line of medical treatment, with its preference for protecting doctors, is something the National Institutes of Health should condemn, physicians’ view or not.
Statute of Limitations Problems for Non-Consenting Minors
In California, for most personal injury claims, including those involving medical malpractice, the general statute of limitations is three years from the injury date or from when the injury was discovered or should have been discovered. However, there are exceptions and special rules for claims involving minors and government agencies like the corrupt teachers who enticed kids to mutilate themselves.California Code of Civil Procedure Section 340.5: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=CCP§ionNum=340.5: “…Actions by a minor shall be commenced within three years from the date of the alleged wrongful act except that actions by a minor under the full age of six years shall be commenced within three years or prior to his eighth birthday whichever provides a longer period. Such time limitation shall be tolled for minors for any period during which parent or guardian and defendant’s insurer or health care provider have committed fraud or collusion in the failure to bring an action on behalf of the injured minor for professional negligence.”
For minors, the statute of limitations is typically tolled or paused until they reach the age of 18. This means that the three-year period may not begin until the individual turns 18 from the appreciable harm. In some cases, the statute of limitations may be extended further if the minor can demonstrate that they were unable to reasonably discover the injury or the cause of the injury until a later date.
See the section on “Appreciable Harm,” on pages 27-28, of the Lovdahl complaint to see how they are addressing these issues: https://libertycenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/1.-Complaint-1.pdf All the best.
“Pursuant to C.C.P. § 340.5, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice actions in California begins to run from the date that “appreciable harm” is first manifested. (See Drexler v. Petersen, 4 Cal. App.5th 1181, 1190-91 (2016); see also Brewer v. Remington, 46 Cal. App.5th 14, 28-29 (2020).).” (Id. p26 par.83.)
Either way, California’s MICRA law makes most med mal cases practically worthless from an economic standpoint. The best advice, stay married, focus on your kids, and leave California. Keep in mind that someone else could try and groom your child and take them across state lines, and California could likely deem you, the parent, a threat and begin their “transition,” like it or not!
Conclusion – Children are Not Sex Offenders
Giving these powerful hormones to kids is dangerous and will definitely subject doctors and teachers to liability. It is important for parents, caregivers, and communities to be aware of the signs of grooming and take preventive measures to protect children from potential abusers despite their apparent trustworthiness and state sanction.
