Controversial Vanderbilt University Medical Center Suspends Transgender Operations For Kids

Oct 10, 2022 | Political News

Vanderbilt University has suspended gender altering surgeries at its medical center amid outrage over claims the hospital ‘chemically castrates' minors for financial gain.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center [VUMC] confirmed it was freezing all ‘gender affirmation surgery' on underage patients pending a review of their processes, in response to calls from Tennessee lawmaker to investigate the hospital.

The center came under fire last month after conservative activist Matt Walsh released a 2018 video showing Dr Shayne Taylor – an LGBTQ specialist at the hospital – touting transgender surgeries as ‘huge money makers' for the hospital.

Walsh also compiled a report of his own investigation into VUMC's trans program which found the hospital ‘drugs, chemically castrates and performs double mastectomies on minors.'
