Emails have emerged on social media that show Admiral Rachel Levine, Biden’s assistant secretary for health, discussed the potential revenue from adolescent sex change surgeries with a Philadelphia children’s hospital.
In the 2018 email exchange obtained via a public records request by parent rights advocate Megan Brock, Levine and Dr. Rollyn M. Ornstein of Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital discussed the need to hire a social worker for the soon-to-be-opened gender clinic and Ornstein asked Levine to provide information regarding "potential revenue, including downstream."
Ornstein said she wanted to include the information in a presentation to convince hospital administration to proceed with the hiring process for the social worker.
Levine responded that the hospital should be able to fund a social worker for "evaluation and therapy for pediatric and adolescent patients" but cautioned that "pre surgical consult for patients under 18 will most likely be limited to FTM Top surgery and that might be a rather limited group of patients."
FTM means female-to-male, and "top surgery" is a euphemism for bilateral mastectomy.
Levine advised Ornstein to reach out to Linda Hawkins of the gender clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for information about their program. Last year it was revealed that the CHOP gender clinic was willing to provide sex changes to minors in foster care, was training its staff on how to coerce reluctant parents into consenting to their child undergoing an experimental sex change, and that its co-founder, Nadia Dowshen believes age is just a number when it comes to referring confused teenage girls for the amputation of their healthy breasts.
Ornstein responded later that same day to say that CHOP was either unwilling or unable to provide the data then asked Levine for contacts at the Mt. Sinai program.
"I am trying to give them some numbers to help them realize the eventual ROI for this necessary position," said Ornstein in an email dated Dec 21, 2018. "Even if patients under 18 who go for surgery might be limited, the patients we start with will eventually be over 18…so I think it’s worthwhile."
"Of course, I think it’s worthwhile no matter what," Ornstein added.
Penn State Health Children’s Hospital opened its gender clinic in 2019 and the clinic’s coordinator is Amy Keisling, a licensed social worker who is affiliated with the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), the leading trans health group that recently added eunuch as a valid innate gender identity even children can possess. The gender clinic offers experimental puberty blockers to children as well as irreversible cross-sex hormones and surgery referrals.
In a 2020 article marking the one year anniversary of the clinic’s launch, Keisling acknowledges the huge surge in young people identifying as transgender and seeking sex change interventions. Far from showing concern, however, Keisling views this changes as a positive thing, the result of information about gender identity being widely available on the internet, as well as the growing number of high profile transgender role models such as Rachel Levine, who it is noted was formerly a physician at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
Other experts, including Marci Bowers, the president of WPATH, say the sudden explosion in young people, mostly adolescent girls, identifying as transgender is the result of a social contagion.
CHOP gender clinic describes the role of its social worker as being a "surgery advocate for our team." Katelyn Regan helps families through the initial stages of the surgery-planning process as well as providing assistance when insurance claims are denied.
