In a video posted on Tuesday, Trump promised to enact a statewide ban on procedures for youngsters that is gender-affirming. The former president also slammed the Biden administration for its “cruel policies” regarding gender-affirming care and vowed to prevent federal agencies from promoting them. In this article, we shall discuss the video in detail, including the plan proposed by former president Trump to protect children From ‘Left-Wing Gender Insanity’.
So without further ado, let’s dive into the details.
Trump Plan To Protect Children From ‘Left-Wing Gender Insanity’
In a video published on Tuesday as part of his re-election campaign, former President Donald Trump detailed a broad range of ideas for using federal authority for barring chemical and surgical procedures commonly used by transgender minors to change to their desired sex.
In the video published on Truth Social on Tuesday, Trump promised to enact legislation in Congress outlawing gender-affirming medical treatments for minors nationwide and penalise medical professionals who offered it by threatening to withhold Medicare and Medicaid funding.
Additionally, he stated that if elected again, he would advocate for legislation that would only recognise males and females as the only genders recognised by the federal government and encourage schools to “promote positive instruction about the nuclear family.”
Trump said he would grant federal authorities the power to monitor and, eventually, “block” the practice of providing gender-affirming care to minors—which he compared to “kid sexual mutilation”—in all 50 states.
Regarding the proposed nationwide ban, Trump predicted that it would pass fast, as “the very simple act of child abuse being foisted on our children is the left-wing gender craziness.”
Republican politics have recently become fixated on transgender youngsters, and Trump’s bold plan aims to outdo his GOP competitors in the primary.
In the opening of the roughly four-minute film, Trump declared his intention “to halt the chemical, physical and emotional mutilation of our young” while standing in front of two American flags.
Trump pledged to punish medical practitioners who provided gender-affirming therapy to kids. He said he would sign an executive order directing government agencies “to discontinue all programmes that promote the concept of sex and gender transition at any age.”
Trump also promised to reverse President Joe Biden‘s policies on gender-affirming healthcare, branding them “cruel” and “stupid” if elected.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Gender affirming care improves well-being of transgender minors
The mental health and general well-being of gender-diverse children and adolescents are improved by gender-affirming care, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The American Medical Association, American Psychological Association, and American Academy of Pediatrics support this evaluation.
Access to care that is gender-affirming greatly improves outcomes for transgender adolescents, according to studies. According to the World Professional Association for Transgender Health criteria for care, it is advised that young children who are exploring their gender identification receive supportive care while working with a mental health professional.
Under the supervision of medical professionals and with the consent of their legal guardians, adolescents can investigate medical transitions using hormones or puberty blockers. Before performing any operation, the WPATH’s standards for care mandate thorough psychological and physical evaluations, and major surgeries are not advised until adulthood.
Violence against transgender people and their sympathisers has already escalated due to the apparent antagonism for transgender people. The Human Rights Campaign has documented at least 32 murders of transgender and gender nonconforming individuals in 2022 alone.
