North Carolina Hospitals Reportedly Provide ‘Gender Transition’ Treatments to Toddlers


North Carolina’s leading medical institutions reportedly target children as young as two-years-old for ‘gender transition’ treatments.

“Take a look at the minimum ages for transitioning from North Carolina’s leading hospitals,” investigative journalist Sloan Rachmuth said.

Rachmuth reports that Duke Medicine opened its Gender Clinic in 2015 and provides services to children as young as two.

From ABC 11 in 2015:

Now, Duke is trying to offer that same support to others through a new center for Child and Adolescent Gender Care. As Director Deanna Adkins explains, this isn’t limited to just Transgender children, it also offers help to those with problems developing gender due to chromosomal problems or other issues.

“We are working with all kinds of kids, from infants to teens. And we take care of children that are having problems developing gender. Gender can be anywhere from chromosomal problems like Turner Syndrome and Klinefelter syndrome, which is very common, to problems with the actual growth and going through puberty itself,” Adkins explained.

Rachmuth added that UNC Health treats children as young as three for gender dysphoria.

Although it appears UNC removed the page, Rachmuth included a picture of the clinic’s intake form in her report.

Rachmuth added:

Interested parents are assured on UNC’s website that a team of psychiatrists, endocrinologists, family doctors, and surgeons will collaborate to “affirm” their child’s gender.

How eager is UNC Health to “affirm” gender (i.e chemically sterilize and castrate)?

So eager that its medical school residents offer cross sex hormones for free every third Wednesday.

ECU Heath recently jumped on the bandwagon and opened it’s own “Pride Clinic” seeing children of all ages. The activist who directs the clinic, Dr. Colby Dendy said this in an interview with the East Carolinian:

“The literature tells us that kids can start around age four having their gender identity, so we do not want to exclude anybody within the pediatrics realm,” Dendy said. “A big part of our goal is to provide affirming primary care to everybody in LGBTQ+ spectrum.”
