Former employee, Jamie Reed, said clinic performs sex-transitioning procedures on minors, and sometimes without parental consent.
Recently, a whistleblower who worked at Washington University’s transgender clinic at the St Louis Children’s Hospital offered disturbing details about activities at the facility.
Jamie Reed, a former employee at the Washington University Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, told The Free Press that the clinic administered a litany of irreparable treatments to minors, often times without parental consent.
Reed claims that doctors would ask questions like ‘do you want a dead daughter or an alive son?’ to ‘bully’ children’s parents into going ahead with gender transitions – under the pretense that not doing so would make them suicidal.
The whistleblower told The Free Press that working at the center, which medically transitioned 600 children within two years, was: ‘Like I was in a cult, and I had to de-program my way out of it.’
Reed alleged, in a sworn affidavit, that the hospital openly lied about not performing sex-transitioning surgeries on minors – claiming one doctor, Dr. Allison Snyder-Warwick, performed one at the hospital in the last few years.Reeds’ claims are truly shocking.
Reed claimed that one minor received a mastectomy and months later wanted the procedure undone, while another minor received a prescription for Bicalutamide, a medication used to treat metastatic prostate cancer that can enlarge breasts but also cause liver damage.
“By the time I departed, I was certain that the way the American medical system is treating these patients is the opposite of the promise we make to ‘do no harm.’ Instead, we are permanently harming the vulnerable patients in our care,” she wrote.
Now Missouri’s Attorney General has officially launched an investigation into these allegations.
Andrew Bailey confirmed the probe Thursday after whistleblower Jamie Reed, 42, came forward with damning allegations about the Washington University Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
A “full investigation into these shocking allegations” was launched two weeks ago, the Republican prosecutor said.
“The Office has already received a sworn affidavit from the whistleblower and documents that support her allegations,” his office said, sharing a copy of the 23-page document.
The university also said it was “alarmed” by the allegations and was “taking this matter very seriously” with its own investigation.
Bailey — who was sworn in last month — called the allegations “disturbing.”
