The Tennessee Conservative Staff –

Sex change procedures for minors are no longer offered at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) thanks to the passage of a new Tennessee law. 

The legislation banning sex change procedures for minors was signed into law by Tennessee Governor Bill Lee on March 3. 

According to the Nashville Post, parents received an email from VUMC letting them know that the clinic will no longer be providing services for those patients.

“Your current medication prescription is affected by the laws coming into effect regarding gender-affirming care,” read an email obtained by the Nashville Post. “VUMC will not fulfill refill requests for medication prescribed for gender-affirming care after June 1, 2023… All medications dispensed for gender-affirming care must have a completion date that is prior to 7/1/23.”

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) challenged the law back in April, filing a lawsuit against the state. The Department of Justice submitted a complaint almost a week later, claiming that the treatment was critical and medically necessary.

The ACLU is hoping that they can get a judge to block the legislation, as has been seen in some of the other 11 states that have similar laws against sex change procedures for minors.

According to the new Tennessee law, doctors can lose their medical license if they opt to perform sex changes on children, and parents are given direction on how to sue physicians if they treat children without parental permission.

Vanderbilt currently has no plans to continue treatments outside of the law.

“With regard to gender-affirming care at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, we continue to fully comply with all federal and state laws and are carefully following the legal proceedings challenging the constitutionality of Tennessee’s new law,” stated VUMC spokesman Craig Boerner.

    Nashville is full of Greek Tragedy. They constructed a life-sized replica of the Parthenon for the centennial even though “symbol of democracy” had transformed from a two different Christian churches into an a theocratic anti-christian Mosque before its ironic destruction during several wars, even though dedicated to Athena the goddess of war. How the centennial committee didn’t recognize the anti christian nature of placing the edifice (Mosque) in the center of the Bible Belt is unbelievable.
    Then the Vanderbilt medical conglomerate was erected making millions on the mutilation of minors for profit throwing out the Greek physician Hippocrates’ oath of non-malicience; “Physicasin Do No Harm”!

    18-21 year old persons should NOT be allowed to get sex change hormones or puberty blockers from Planned Parenthood nurses, via telehealth services or face to face. We need a law like Florida SB 254 that limits who can provide transgender treatments for patients OF ANY AGE. The State Medical Board needs to be involved and screen these individuals. Vanderbilt and Planned Parenthood cannot be trusted to ‘do no harm’.
    Why do you think a toxicology report wasn’t done on the christian school shooter? Transgender identified people need extensive counseling not hormones.
    So we have kids 18-21 yrs old that have been sexualized at an early age by our public schools, given gender marker test, their mind programed on social media platforms, transgender affirmed by peers and liberals, dismissed by doctors, locked down at home by government, their brain’s cognitive ability underdeveloped, and they can call a nurse to get medications that permanently damage them.
