Massive Backlash Forces Vanderbilt to Pause Underage Trans Procedures

'The fight is far from over but this will save children from mutilation and abuse... '

(Chris Parker, Headline USA) Earlier this year, a bombshell report from the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh exposed Ivory League Vanderbilt University’s hostilities towards employees opposed to its practice of performing transgender procedures on minors.

The prestigious university has since faced significant backlash that prompted the school to shut down the website for its Trans Clinic shortly after Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee announced an investigation.

Amid the backlash, Vanderbilt has announced that it will pause transgender procedures for children, reported Just the News. The pause comes amid cries from state lawmakers demanding that the school stop the practice.

“HUGE NEWS: following our report, Vanderbilt has agreed to pause all gender transition surgeries on minors. The fight is far from over but this will save children from mutilation and abuse. An incredibly important victory. Praise God.” Walsh tweeted.

The announcement came from C. Wright Pinson, Vanderbilt’s Deputy CEO and Chief Health System Officer, in a letter addressed to lawmakers:

“You have asked VUMC to permanently halt gender affirmation surgeries being performed on minor children,” the letter said. “On September 6, 2022, WPATH (World Professional Association of Transgender Health) published a new version of its recommendations to health care professionals for treatment of transgender persons, known as SOC-8.

In light of these new recommendations, and as part of completing our internal clinical review of SOC-8 guidance in patients under 18, we will be seeking advice from local and national clinic experts.

We are pausing gender affirmation surgeries on patients under 18 while we complete this review, which may take several months,” it concluded. The pause is not a permanent halt to the surgeries and that decision remains unmade.”

The school faced severe criticism after footage secretly recorded by Walsh revealed the startling position of Vanderbilt’s legal team.

“If you are going to assert conscientious objection, you have to realize that that is problematic You are doing something to another person, and you are not paying the cost for your belief. I think that is a … real issue.” health law expert Ellen Wright Clayton of VUMC said in the video.
