Even we transgender adults know medical transition is no place for a child. This is not about politics - it's just wrong. Now it's time to tell politician to get into the game:
Our Children Need US To Protect Them!

Dear Senator, I am your constituent, and I urge you to vote NO on confirming Rachel Levine for Assistant Secretary for Health in the Department of Health and Human Services. I urge you to do so not because Dr. Levine is transgender but because of her affirmation-only approach to medically transitioning gender-questioning kids. We know from Dr. Levine’s public statements that she advocates the use of puberty blockers in children, citing from a study that was later retracted. She has spoken at conferences in favor of medicalization of gender-questioning youth. What is unclear is whether she is up-to-date on all the research that came out in 2020 that has cast doubt on the affirmation-only approach that is a one-way ticket to permanent bodily changes or if she is aware of the UK High Court decision from December, which ruled that puberty blockers are experimental. Much of this research is cited in this recent Newsweek article, which also details the brutal realities of medical transition, written by a transman. She (and you) can also consult the Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine (SEGM) for the latest information. We cannot have someone with this medical approach deciding health policy for gender-questioning minors - it is much too dangerous. Please vote NO on Rachel Levine and urge all your colleagues to do the same! Thank you.
