The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) teamed up with the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine (AHM), the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), and several other groups of medical professionals to condemn genital mutilation surgeries for minors.

The cohort authored and signed a declaration urging medical professionals to stop asserting that children benefit from the barbarous procedures. The groups’ statement calls for an “immediate[] stop the promotion of social affirmation, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgeries for children and adolescents who experience distress over their biological sex.”

The groups have coalesced under the organization Doctors Protecting Children (DPC), which is dedicated to making people aware of the “serious concerns about the physical and mental health effects of the current protocols promoted for the care of children and adolescents in the United States who express discomfort with their biological sex.”

“Despite all the above evidence that gender affirming treatments are not only unhelpful, but are harmful, and despite the knowledge that the adolescent brain is immature, professional medical organizations in the United States continue to promote these interventions,” DPC’s statement reads. “Further, they state that legislation to protect children from harmful interventions is dangerous since it interferes with necessary medical care for children and adolescents.”

“Unfortunately, the protocols currently being pushed on children and adolescents violate the fundamental precepts of Hippocratic medicine which are to ‘prescribe regimen for the good of patients’ and ‘do no harm,'” said Dr. Erica LeBaron, family medicine physician and president-elect of AAPS.

“It is past time for our profession to end the harm being done and instead provide care to children that is both rooted in science and principles of medical ethics that put patients, not political ideology, first,” LeBaron added.

“Medical decision making should respect biological reality and the dignity of the person,” said Nicole Hayes from the Christian Medical & Dental Associations. “Anything less is disastrous.”

The DPC’s declaration comes at a pivotal time as polling shows that a majority of Americans oppose the medical industry’s ferocious attempts to reject biology and convince children to cut off their body parts.

A poll published in 2023 by the Washington Post found that 68 percent of Americans oppose access to hormonal medicine for children ages 10 to 14. More than 20 states have banned so-called “gender-affirming care,” suggesting there is a growing distaste for the transgender agenda throughout the country.

Although the average American has a distaste for the fanatical gender-bending ideas the left promotes, the country’s most radical activists continue to push for transgender athletes in female sports, produce ad campaigns revolving around gender activists, and write television shows that depict out-of-touch storylines promoting the rejection of biological men and women.

The left’s gender ideology also continues to infiltrate major institutions, and dozens of influential entities promote it, primarily toward children.

Disney, for example, is well known for including pro-transgender storylines in its recent movies and television shows.
