California Decree: Insurance Must Pay to Mutilate Confused Children

Insurance companies operating in California must pay to surgically mutilate the bodies of children who are or claim to be confused about their gender, according to a new order from state Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara.

Critics were outraged. Indeed, prominent medical organizations such as the American College of Pediatricians have condemned as "child abuse" efforts to convince children that mutilating their bodies and taking dangerous hormones to impersonate the opposite sex is somehow normal or healthy.

However, the increasingly aggressive LGBT lobby, as well as Big Pharma and Medical-Industrial Complex profiteers, celebrated the decision as a supposed victory against "discrimination" and "outdated" medical ethics.

Under the new policy, minor girls will be able to force insurance companies to pay "doctors" to remove their healthy breasts and create a chest that looks more like a male. However, to accomplish that, the order redefines mutilating a child's healthy body as "reconstructive surgery," which is what would be given to somebody whose tissue was damaged in a fire or an accident of some sort.

Columnist Tyler O'Neil at PJ Media exposed the legal absurdity underpinning the wild order. After quoting from California's own statutes and definitions, O'Neil also points to the countless victims of the "transgender cult" who grew up and deeply regretted mutilating their bodies with encouragement from quack "doctors" and pharmaceutical interests.

California Insurance boss Lara also tried to put a smiley face on it all. "For far too long, individuals diagnosed with gender dysphoria have had to battle a host of challenges to get access to gender-affirming care in order to be their true selves," claimed the commissioner in a statement announcing the new decree that will make more children permanently dependent on doctors for "care."

Commissioner Lara added: "Social stigma, misconceptions about gender dysphoria and its treatment, and outdated medical criteria create barriers to necessary medical care that can lead to tragic results for individuals with gender dysphoria, especially for our transgender youth."

Of course, in the real world, the overwhelming super-majority of children confused about their gender - many of them are confused by government-school indoctrination - will snap out of it and become comfortable in their own bodies. Studies show more than two thirds of confused children will abandon that confusion if not encouraged by adults with a financial interest in encouraging it.

Top experts have slammed the mutilation and sterilization of "transgender" children under the guise of "healthcare" as worse than quackery. Johns Hopkins University psychiatry professor Dr. Paul McHugh, a leading expert in the field, for instance, blasted these sorts of phony "treatments" used against children as "reckless and irresponsible."

"It is comparable to doing frontal lobotomies," warned Dr. McHugh, a reference to medical quackery that destroyed the brains of countless innocent victims under the guise of offering "treatment" for a "mental health" issue.

Pediatrician Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, spoke out about the new order, too. "The commissioner is requiring insurance companies to pay surgeons to remove the healthy breasts of emotionally distraught girls and women and implying it is 'necessary treatment' – yet we already have multiple studies demonstrating that mutilation does not treat gender dysphoria," she explained.

And yet, across California and beyond, government edicts backed by Big Pharma-funded politicians and media outlets have continued to promote the notion that mutilating healthy but confused children is healthy, normal, and beneficial. As The Newman Report documented, even in conservative states, government schools are indoctrinating and confusing children with this madness.
The escalating extremism coming out of California is already infecting the rest of America like a deadly cancer. Without serious opposition, these threats to children and common-sense will grow more and more widespread - and more and more dangerous. Parents who refuse to go along will be in the cross-hairs next. For the sake of their children, they must act now.
