(LifeSite) A former employee at a soon-to-be closed Texas gender clinic recently exposed the actions of one of its lead doctors and his involvement in child mutilation.
During an interview with Christopher Rufo, who headed an effort to shut down the gender clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital earlier this month, a whistleblower who worked closely with Dr. Richard Ogden Roberts revealed that such medical professionals and facilities are “ruining” children.
The whistleblower who spoke with Rufo explained that “I work very closely” with Roberts and “just wanted to see for myself how he speaks to them [patients]” and “what they look like with their history, what other underlying medical conditions they have.”
“It is absolutely astonishing: so many of the charts that I have just perused and read through as I’m doing my work, they have serious mental health issues. They’re autistic. They have previous suicide attempts. They’re depressed. They’re on anxiety medications. They have a disability of some kind. It’s just absolutely wild.”
The whistleblower explained that Roberts doesn’t hesitate to prescribe cross-sex hormones — or increase dosages — and has completely backed double mastectomy procedures for minors.
“Dr. Roberts is extremely encouraging of their transition and will essentially do whatever he can to make sure that they are happy, at least externally happy, because I’m absolutely certain that they’re not internally happy. He’s also very accommodating. He does whatever they want. Essentially, there’s not critical analysis of the process.”
The whistleblower shared that children need only “establish care with Dr. Roberts” and, after a consultation, he will “almost immediately” put them on puberty blockers. Parents are reportedly “scared of being reported to Child Protective Services … if they don’t affirm their child, that their kid is going to commit suicide and do self-harm — which is a lie.”
“They’re intimidated by these doctors that are on the side of their kid and have a lot of power,” the whistleblower continued. “They could report them and then their child could be taken away from them.”
The doctors, according to the whistleblower, are “activists” who “live for the applause of the medical community.” They are supported by influential voices including mainstream media and Big Tech, which encourages them to continue “wanting to play God.”
The “devastated” whistleblower — who expressed a willingness to lose a well-paying job in the industry — described “a culture of fear” that is “unspoken” throughout the “gender transition” world, which recognizes that “transgender [sic] medicine is hugely lucrative.”
