Conservative podcaster Matt Walsh posted an amazing thread on Tuesday night, all about the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He dug up a whole ton of information about the VUMC, and even though they tried to delete it all, he downloaded everything. Let’s take a look at what he tweeted, then we’ll learn more about the people at the VUMC, and see what happens next.
Here is some of it:
BREAKING: My team and I have been investigating the transgender clinic at Vanderbilt here in Nashville. Vanderbilt drugs, chemically castrates, and performs double mastectomies on minors. But it gets worse. Here is what we found. Let’s start at the beginning.
Vanderbilt opened its trans clinic in 2018. During a lecture the same year, Dr. Shayne Taylor explained how she convinced Nashville to get into the gender transition game. She emphasized that it’s a “big money maker,” especially because the surgeries require a lot of “follow ups”.
Vanderbilt was apparently concerned that not all of its staff would be on board. Dr. Ellen Clayton warned that “conscientious objections” are “problematic.” Anyone who decides not to be involved in transition surgeries due to “religious beliefs” will face “consequences”.
[…]Vanderbilt makes… make lots of “services” available to children, including chemical castration. Though at some point in the last month they removed explicit admission of this fact from their site. Here’s the archived screenshot.
But they must have forgot to delete a video from Vanderbilt Psychiatry’s Youtube channel back in 2020 which admits explicitly that they will give and have given irreversible hormone drugs to children as young as 13.
After they have drugged and sterilized the kids, Vanderbilt — as explained in this video presentation by plastic surgeon Julien Winocour and Physician’s Assistant Shalyn Vanderbloemen — will happily perform double mastectomies on adolescent girls.
As soon as Matt Walsh posted all the screenshots and videos on Twitter, they took down their entire web site. Fortunately, Matt tweeted that his team grabbed all the evidence before they started tweeting about it.
Here is more from Daily Wire:
“It’s a lot of money,” VUMC Clinic for Transgender Health’s Dr. Shayne Sebold Taylor said at one Medicine Grand Rounds lecture, video reveals. “These surgeries make a lot of money.”
Taylor noted that a “chest reconstruction” can bring in $40,000 per patient, and someone “just on routine hormone treatment, who I’m only seeing a few times a year, can bring in several thousand dollars … and actually makes money for the hospital.”
Citing the Philadelphia Center for Transgender Surgery, Taylor said vaginoplasty surgeries can generate $20,000, gushing that it “has to be an underestimate,” since hospital stay, anesthesia, post-op visits, and other add-ons are not included in the total.
“And the female-to-male bottom surgeries, these are huge money makers,” the doctor continued, adding that such surgeries could bring in “up to $100,000” for the hospital.
Some clinics are “entirely” “supported” financially by such phalloplasty surgeries, Taylor boasted.
“These surgeries are labor intensive, there are a lot of follow-ups, they require a lot of our time, and they make money,” she emphasized. “They make money for the hospital.”
I’m quite excited to say that Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn is calling for an investigation of VUMC.
Daily Wire also reported on the response of Tennessee’s Republican Governor Bill Lee:
Tennessee Republican Governor Bill Lee has called for an investigation of the Pediatric Transgender Clinic at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) after shocking videos posted by Matt Walsh detailed a doctor’s promotion of “big money maker” transgender surgeries.
What I wanted to talk about was one of the women who said that “religious people” who object to all of this “big money” making should be ejected from the hospital.
This is from the Daily Wire article:
At another Medicine Grand Rounds lecture, staffers are warned by Vanderbilt health law expert Ellen Wright Clayton that any “conscientious objection” will be met with “consequences,” and are told they probably shouldn’t be working at VUMC if they don’t want to participate in the trans surgeries, which include minor patients.
She said “if you don’t want to do this kind of work, don’t work at Vanderbilt”. She’s talking to Christians when she says that.
I looked up this Ellen Clayton woman, and found that she used to sing in her church choir. If only churches majored in apologetics, instead of singing, then maybe we wouldn’t be producing people who want to force Christians to mutilate children. So long as Christians prefer Matt Chandler and Beth Moore to William Lane Craig and Stephen C. Meyer, then we will keep producing people who would rather mutilate children than behave morally.
