Boston Children’s Hospital is offering and encouraging “gender affirming hysterectomies” to young girls in the latest push to turn kids trans
The Boston Children’s Hospital is offering “gender affirming hysterectomies” to young teenage girls. Hysterectomies. As in the removal of the female reproductive organs including the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, and sometimes even the ovaries.

Dr. Frances Grimstad, of the Boston Children’s Hospital, explains how “a gender-affirming hysterectomy is very similar to most hysterectomies that occur.”
“A hysterectomy itself is the removal of the uterus, the cervix — which is the opening of the uterus — and the fallopian tubes, which are attached to the sides of the uterus. Some gender-affirming hysterectomies will also include the removal of the ovaries, but that’s technically a separate procedure called a bilateral oophorectomy, and not every gender-affirming hysterectomy includes that. People who are getting gender forming hysterectomies do not have to have their ovaries removed.”
This serious procedure, alongside other surgical procedures including vaginoplasty and facial feminization surgery, are being offered and boasted about by the Massachusetts based hospital as they are offered to young and impressionable teenagers as a way of “affirming their gender.”
Puberty blockers are also offered at this children’s hospital.
The offering and encouraging of services such as these to minors and young adults represents a transition from expert-based health care, in which the doctor knows best and is looking out for the patient’s interest, to a more politicized form of health care in which being politically correct and giving in to the demands of turbulent teens and the LGBT community are the priorities.
In order to receive these treatments, one only needs to have a documented history of gender dysphoria.
Even so, these kids will, in many cases, live to regret the procedures they are being irresponsibly encouraged to receive–we see transition regret all of the time, and especially from people who began transitioning ad younger ages.
