After eight years of living as “Laura,” Walt Heyer returned to his true self and now helps thousands through his website:

Sociologist Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., studied the research regarding Sexual Orientation Change Efforts and discovered something interesting.

YouTube Censors Ruth Institute

By Jean Mondoro June 21, 2023

‘YouTube doesn’t want the public to know about the abortion-breast cancer link, so it shuts down any discussion of the matter, under the guise of protecting the public from ‘misinformation.’ How convenient,’ Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse said.

(LifeSiteNews) — A pro-life organization has been censored once again on YouTube for posting a clip of an interview discussing the link between abortion and breast cancer.

Last week, a clip from a video of Ruth Institute president Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse speaking with biologist Dr. Joel Brind was removed from the Google-owned YouTube for violating the streaming platform’s “medical misinformation policy.”

“YouTube does not allow content about abortion that contradicts expert consensus from local health authorities or the World Health Organization (WHO) and poses a serious risk of bodily harm or death,” the platform wrote in a message informing the group about the removal of its video.

Restrictions on Trans Surgery a “Health Crisis”?

Dr. Jesse Ehrenfeld, the new American Medical Association president, said we have a “health care system in crisis” because of restrictions on transgender surgery.

Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., responded: “Some state legislatures and health boards have enacted restrictions on procedures that are arguably the mutilation of minor children. Dr. Ehrenfeld calls these restrictions interference with ‘evidenced based care.’ So inquiring minds want to know, where’s the evidence?”

The Ruth Institute reported earlier this year that the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration examined the evidence surrounding the effectiveness of current treatments for gender dysphoria. The Board found the evidence supporting trans medical procedures to range from “weak” to “very weak.” Dr. Quentin Van Meter, a pediatric endocrinologist, provided testimony to the Florida Agency. Morse interviewed him on the Dr. J Show.

“Florida declined to spend its Medicaid dollars on so-called trans treatments, because the Agency found the evidence to be so weak,” Morse noted. “Is this the ‘health care crisis’ Dr. Ehrenfeld is referring to?”

The media is celebrating Ehrenfeld as the first “openly gay” AMA president, causing Morse to wonder: “Whose interests does he put first? Patients or the movement with which he is affiliated?”

“Since physicians have the power of life and death in their hands, the public has the right to expect some health and safety regulations. Dr. Ehrenfeld seems to be suggesting that there should be no restrictions on practicing medicine, and that legislatures have no right to inquire about standards of care,” Morse said.

“In the past, some physicians believed bleeding with leeches was evidenced-based care. Some believed lobotomies were evidenced-based care.”

“There is a growing movement of de-transitioners, individuals who’ve had these procedures performed on them as minors who now deeply regret it.”

Suing the Quacks

Kayla Lovdahl is a California woman whose breasts were removed when she was 13 because doctors told her she was transgender. She’s now suing the doctors and hospital involved.

Lovdahl said, “The vast majority of cross-gender identified children, if medically treated in early adolescence, risk regretting that decision after they are old enough to realize their losses.”

Morse noted, “The Ruth Institute has reported on the case of Chloe Cole, who had a double mastectomy at age 15 under circumstances similar to Lovdahl’s.”

Last year, Cole, who recently initiated her own lawsuit, told a Florida hearing, “I was unknowingly, physically cutting off my true self from my body, irreversibly and painfully.”

Morse asked: “Is Dr. Ehrenfeld an activist trying to advance an agenda? Or is he open to a reasoned discussion about the possibility that some medical interventions on people suffering from gender dysphoria actually causes them pain and suffering? What happened to the Hippocratic Oath’s ‘First, do no harm?’”
