The Boston Children’s Hospital in Massachusetts received a $1.4 million reimbursement in taxpayer money for providing child sex change changes, according to records obtained by the Daily Caller.
Between 2017 and 2020, the children’s hospital performed 204 “gender-affirming surgeries” on minors, including 65 chest surgeries.
According to records, the youngest patient was just 15 years old.
The Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) of Massachusetts said over one million dollars in reimbursement was for the hospital’s “gender transition services.”
Those “gender transition services” included:
Physician and hospital services
Inpatient and outpatient treatments
Last year, the Boston Children’s Hospital came under fire after it was revealed it performs child sex changes.
The hospital recently boasted it became the first in the US to create a pediatric and adolescent transgender health program.
However, the massive backlash forced the hospital to remove its webpage, which included videos about sex change surgeries and gender dysphoria.
The hospital requires its young patients to obtain parental consent or a letter from a “medical doctor or nurse practitioner stating that you have ‘persistent, well documented, gender dysphoria,'” the website states.
However, patients over the age of 17 can receive vaginoplasty without parental consent.
But the hospital will not perform penis construction surgeries until they reach 18 years of age.
The children’s hospital also offers a “Transgender Reproductive Health” program, which includes “gender-affirming hysterectomies” for patients aged 18.
It also provides resources to trans-identified biological teenagers on how they can get the appearance of a vagina by using duct tape for “safe tucking.”
According to data from the JAMA Network medical journal, sex change procedures have tripled over the years, as Americans between the ages of 12 to 40 seeking gender transition treatments between 2016 and 2019 jumped from 4,552 to 13,011.
Of those figures, over 3,000 of those are minors.
Earlier in 2023, Oren Ganor, the co-director of BCH’s Center for Gender Surgery, co-wrote an article that called for increasing training for gender surgeries.
“With certain states restricting gender-affirming surgeries, residency programs in states with more favorable regulations must ensure they increase training efforts to accommodate increased caseloads of gender-affirming surgeries that will likely result,” wrote Ganor, along with Harvard graduate Shawheen Rezaei.
