AMA, AAP, and CHA Plead With AG Garland Regarding Gender Reassignment on Children

By • October 12, 2022

The American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Children’s Hospital Association have sent a letter to US Attorney General Merrick Garland asking for action to protect practitioners and hospitals performing ‘gender reassignment’ treatments and surgeries for minor children.

Idaho Dispatch reported in September that the Essence Clinic at St. Luke’s Hospital in Boise is one such organization offering these treatments and procedures. We updated a few days later when the Essence Clinic webpage removed nearly all the information that had previously been displayed.

In what the AMA, AAP, and CHA describe as an “intentional campaign of disinformation,”

“…a few high-profile users on social media share false and misleading information targeting individual physicians and hospitals, resulting in a rapid escalation of threats, harassment, and disruption of care across multiple jurisdictions.”

The three organizations explain in the letter that they have asked Big Tech companies to take action to minimize this on their platforms.

The request to Attorney General Garland’s office is to direct the Department of Justice,

“to take swift action to investigate and prosecute all organizations, individuals, and entities responsible.”

The AMA shared the letter and additional explanation on their website here. Included is the statement of CHA President Amy Wimpey,

“We are committed to providing safe, supportive and inclusive health care environments for each and every child and family, and the clinicians and staff who are dedicated to caring for children. Threats and acts of violence are not a solution, nor a substitute, for civil dialogue about issues of a child or teen’s health and wellbeing. At CHA, we are committed to working across sectors to prevent misleading and inflammatory comments that result in threats to those caring for patients.”


Idaho Dispatch reached out to the AAP and CHA for comment. No response has been received. We will update this article if either organization provides a response.

  1. Sue the hell out of any individual, educational or health facility, and any company that attempts to mentally or physically violate our kids!

  2. Unbelievably desperate move. We make a stand as consumers by never utilizing the St. Luke’s medical facility again. I hope they go out of business.

    1. Larry, you are correct in that concept. Look at all the things we have that report back to the mother ship. My cell phone responded by itself back to me concerning a conversation it heard by my girlfriend. No fooling!

  3. This is the Birth Pangs of E.S.G. (Environmental, Social, Governance), coming to Idaho OR HERE IN IDAHO. FASCISM TO THE MAX!!! While the Foundations of this is being constructed All around US, Our Worthless RINOS Currently in Office are SILENT…Hmm, I Wonder Why? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$???

    1. Good point Governor Little has executive authority over health and human services he could put a stop to this but he voted for gay marriage and enjoys funding drag queens in the park for children with our tax dollars tens of thousands of them by the way he needs to be removed! Ammon Bundy for Governor

  4. You can’t vote until you’re 18 that’s in the constitution. Unconstitutional that he child without his parents permission should be able to have things put in their body or to have their bodies modified or mutilated. Sheriff sworn to protect the constitution and should arrest these people and the state attorney should prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law this is child endangerment it is child abuse and it must be stopped at all costs

  5. Who is the arbiter of truth? What is disinformation? When calls for transparency with the intent of exposing evil become threatening to major corporations and “nonprofits” with billions of dollars in revenue who pay CEO’s $18million/2yrs and have employed in house legal counsel, who receive over 60% of their revenues from tax payers (transfer payments), and who can leverage their resources with claims of “disinformation” to threaten “free speech”, then maybe we should all just keep our mouths shut and bow to the “experts”—-NOT. The truth is the medical profession and the guilds that represent them have lost the respect of their patients and the public. Respect is earned and cannot be litigated or legislated. I can only guess, but I believe that the people at AMA, AAP. and CHA who wrote the letter to the DOJ, weren’t doctors, but lawyers representing corporate interests and not the interests of most patients or the physicians that belong to those organizations. There is lots of money at stake for the corporatists that run large hospital systems. I absolutely agree that there is never a place for violence and people on our side will lose credibility with rhetoric and actions that aren’t peaceful. The legal question that hasn’t been answered to my satisfaction about this issue is the idea of “agency” and informed consent. These are never emergent therapeutic or surgical interventions and to take away the “free will” of a child who is incapable of exercising their own “free will” until they become an adult is wrong. This is an issue that legislators and lawyers and judges have not yet answered in our State. My opinions regarding this matter are informed by my Christian faith. I beleive transgender interventions upon a child are “evil” and wrong, just like I beleive abortion is wrong in 99.9% of the cases. When a person is an adult and able to exercise their own “agency” and “free will” then they can do what they want. In any case these are “elective” interventions and tax payers should never have to pay for them.

    1. Good afternoon John,

      Would you like to expand on your ideas here and have us publish them as an Op-Ed?

    2. We have a politician, government employee and military crime gang destroying this nation! They have bankrupted and are destroying this nation. Society is so dumbed down from government school and their Tv to not be aware of the the evil we have ruling this nation?

    1. Go ahead, keep voting for people like chicken little or any individual with a D connected to them and this will be the norm in Idaho.

  6. Many years ago I watched a fictional movie where the state of Idaho built high walls surrounding its perimeter and withdrew from the rest of the country. Maybe it’s not such a crazy idea anymore. Block the crazies coming in, and send the ones here out.

    1. Too late the low IQ Idahoans [ look at the government crime gang we reelect]
      and the California invasion have already destroyed Idaho.
