White House Touts Actions on Transgender Rights, ‘Affirming Care’

President Joe Biden officially honored a “Transgender Day of Visibility” and released a fact sheet touting his administration’s support of transgender children and youth.

“While transgender Americans have an unwavering champion in the President, conservative politicians have advanced hundreds of anti-transgender laws in states across the country so far this year, putting the fundamental rights and freedoms of trans Americans at risk,” states the White House document.

The fact sheet lists steps the Biden administration has taken to promote “gender-affirming care” and protect the civil rights of transgendered persons under federal laws and regulations.


Biden administration actions with regard to trans issues include a new Office of Personnel Management guidance on “gender inclusion in the federal workplace” and the release of a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) that details “evidence-based practices to affirm and support transgender and LGBTQI+ youth and their families,” according to the fact sheet.

“In spite of the overwhelming scientific evidence that affirming an LGBTQI+ child is in their best interest, LGBTQI+ children—especially transgender children—face a nationwide mental health crisis because of the harassment, rejection, bullying, and discrimination they face,” states the fact sheet.

The fact sheet also says the Biden administration has done “historic work” to support LGBTAI+ people, including the ending of “disparities” in the child welfare and foster care system, supporting trans rights in schools, and ensuring “accurate IDs” and access to government services.

The fact sheet states that “gender-affirming care—which includes counseling and mental health supports” improves the well-being of “transgender children.” The White House document does not mention, but the SAMHSA report states, that the treatment of dysphoria in trans children and youth may also require “medically necessary care,” meaning hormonal and surgical treatments.

Support or Coercion?

The entire “fact sheet” consists of “activist propaganda points” that will lead to pressure on patients to undergo transgender procedures, says Michelle Cretella, M.D., a pediatrician who speaks out on transgender ideology.

“We will eventually see a tsunami of lawsuits brought by young adults against doctors and health care centers who coerced these patients into transgender procedures as teenagers using these very lies,” said Cretella. “For reasons we can only speculate, this administration (the entire Democrat party for that matter) has decided to do all it can to increase the profits of the trans-bio-pharmaceutical complex at the expense of the health and lives of our most vulnerable citizens.”

The “fact sheet” could have implications for health care professionals, says Jane Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and a policy advisor to The Heartland Institute, which publishes Health Care News.

“Probably all ‘providers’ will be bringing this up (in the exam room), especially if they participate in any government ‘insurance’ program,” said Orient. “Normal, non-confused children will be discriminated against and feel isolated but will get thousands of Facebook ‘friends’ if they ‘come out.’ Parents who try to defend their children will not just be shut out but possibly lose custody of their children.”

Culture at Stake

Biden’s fact sheet is “delusional, harmful, unethical, just plain evil,” and it is crucial to push back against the ideology it represents, says Orient.

“If people go along with this, our culture is destroyed,” said Orient. “God is not mocked. And nature always wins. Cultures and species have gone extinct many times before. Maybe that is the purpose—the result is the intention.”

Cretella says the long-term prognosis for resisting radical transgender ideology is positive, but the actions of the Biden Administration will cause harm.

“In the short-term, it will make it far more difficult for the silent majority of physicians and mental health professionals to heal these young people and promote optimal mental and physical health,” said Cretella. “In the long-term, I believe the transgender lies will collapse, in large part due to future lawsuits and ongoing education by those of us dedicated to first do no harm.”
