A licensed pediatrician had the temerity to say that pumping little children with hormones and enabling their warped fantasies of becoming another gender at odds with their biological sex is akin to child abuse. Now, the LGBT activists have their long-knives out for her.
According to LifeSiteNews, transgender activists “gathered outside a Rhode Island Catholic Church last week to protest a lecture delivered by pediatrician Michelle Cretella, who views affirming transgenderism in kids as a form of child abuse.”
Dr. Michelle Cretella, MD, FCP, president of the American College of Pediatricians, has made it her mission to highlight the harmful effects of gender transitioning on children. At the time of her comments, Rhode Island had recently enacted a law stripping parents of their right to object to providing treatment for “gender transition” to children who showed signs of “gender dysphoria.” The law also prohibited medical professionals from refusing to provide or refer for “gender transition” services.
As many as 40 LGBT activists showed up to St. Pius V Church in Providence to protest Cretella speaking out against the law. Many of them claimed that affirming trans children “saves lives.” Cretella, being an actual doctor of children, says the science suggests otherwise.
