Dr. John Steever, Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center [New York, NY]: “In the beginning, it’s a lot of doctor visits. But, you know, after a while, you space it out. It’s like, every six to twelve months? Which yeah, is being a patient. But that doesn’t seem so bad.”
Dr. Steever: “The permanent effects of testosterone are things like facial hair, body hair, enlargement of the clitoris, clitoromegaly, and the last one is vocal pitch drop -- and so those are effects that once they happen, don’t reverse.”
Dr. Matthew Warnken, Pharmacist, 38th Street Pharmacy [Austin, TX]: “For a female going to male, if they would continue -- you’d have to continuously take testosterone pretty -- well, for the rest of their life.”
Dr. Warnken: “If there’s enough changes to the physical body [from undergoing gender transition treatment], I don’t know if they [patients] would be able to, you know, have a baby, naturally speaking.”
Nora Scott, Licensed Social Worker, Dell Children’s Medical Center [Austin, TX]: “I can say from here as well, there’s a lot of folks at our clinic who are on the autism spectrum … [There is] a heavy amount of crossover between folks who are somewhere on the spectrum and also somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum.”
Prisha Mosley, De-Transition Advocate: “I was under the impression that I was going to take a cure and be healed, and I didn’t understand as a mentally ill child that I was signing up for lifelong medicalization. I didn’t conceptualize the idea that I was going to be injecting this [medication] every two weeks, forever.”
[NEW YORK – Apr. 25, 2023] Project Veritas released a third video in its series exposing pro-transgender medical workers today -- with this report revealing how the transgender “health” industry functions and profits off underage patients on a long-term basis.
Dr. John Steever, who was featured in an earlier Veritas report, is seen talking about how young individuals are subjected to prolonged gender transitions.
“In the beginning, it’s a lot of doctor visits. But, you know, after a while, you space it out. It’s like, every six to twelve months? Which yeah, is being a patient. But that doesn’t seem so bad,” he said.
Dr. Matthew Warnken, a pharmacist in Austin, Texas, echoed what Dr. Steever said.
“For a female going to male, if they would continue -- you’d have to continuously take testosterone pretty -- well, for the rest of their life,” he said.
Dr. Matthew Pabis, who is another New York-based medical professional featured in this Veritas investigative series, believes there may be a connection between people on the spectrum and their desire to change genders.
“It was a person on the spectrum as well, 21-years-old. At the time, he was coming here for mental health, and he came down here and he just sat down, and I’m like, ‘What are you here for?’ He’s like, ‘Oh, I saw you do transgender.’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ He’s like, ‘Well I think I need to get my penis cut off,’” Dr. Pabis said.
“I was like, ‘You know, transitioning is not easy.’ It doesn’t happen like this. You have to inject yourself with hormones. You have to take pills. You have to do bloodwork. You know, if he makes it then let’s do it, and he’s getting his vagina next week, in one year!”
Nora Scott, a licensed social worker at Dell Children’s Medical Center, corroborated Dr. Pabis’ statements.
“I can say from here as well, there’s a lot of folks at our clinic who are on the autism spectrum … [There is] a heavy amount of crossover between folks who are somewhere on the spectrum and also somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum,” she said.
Caila Hoopes, who is a nurse at the Phoenix Children’s Medical Group in Arizona, discreetly explained to a Veritas journalist how their facility handles parental consent when it comes to transitioning minors:
Caila Hoopes, Nurse, Phoenix Children’s Medical Group [Phoenix, AZ]: True hormone therapy there is, like, long-term possible side effects of like -- it is life changing and is difficult to come back from. It also requires parents to be onboard.
Veritas Journalist: Really? You--
Hoopes: So, here are my words. You have to -- we have to have one parent’s consent. If we know that there’s another parent who’s not on board, we can’t start hormone therapy.
Veritas Journalist: Oh okay, yeah.
Hoopes: Is that fair?
