Minnesota on Cusp of Genital-Mutilation Surgery Spike

Dr. Oren Ganor, the co-director of the Center for Gender Surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital, recently co-wrote an article that argued for increased training efforts for gender-affirming surgeries, particularly for minors. In the article, he expressed concern that some states are working to protect children from genital mutilation, which could lead to increased demand for these services in states that encourage this medical malpractice, like Minnesota.

Democrats are trying to make Minnesota a "sanctuary state" for trans surgeries, meaning that no court order or law in another state can stop parents from forcing their children to transition in Minnesota.

Many remain skeptical of the safety and efficacy of gender-affirming surgeries for minors. Critics argue that children and teenagers do not have the cognitive and emotional maturity to understand the consequences of such irreversible procedures fully. Furthermore, some studies suggest that gender dysphoria may resolve on its own without the need for medical intervention.

The long-term effects of hormone therapy and surgeries on minors are not fully understood. Experts warn of potential health risks, including infertility, sexual dysfunction, and increased risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. It is also important to note that so-called “gender-affirming” surgeries do not result in improved mental health outcomes and may even lead to regret or detransition.

If Democrats make Minnesota a trans sanctuary state, there is no doubt that gender clinics in Minnesota will make money from a spike of gender dysphoric patients coming here. In the Minnesota Senate, Democrats only carry a one-seat majority. For the sake of protecting children in Minnesota, please reach out to your elected officials and tell them to oppose this horrific legislation.
