Parents of Gender Dysphoric Teens Warn Against Taxpayer-funded Breast Removal Surgery for Minors

Parents of teenagers who say they are trans are keeping a close eye on a lawsuit that could lead to taxpayer-funded gender reassignment surgeries for minors.

One parent, who bears the pseudonym Charlotte Jacobs to protect the identity of herself and her daughter, told The Epoch Times that she and other parents of teenagers with gender dysphoria are paying close attention to the case.

“There is no research to show that this surgery, or any other type of gender reassignment surgery, alleviates gender dysphoria … so this is elective surgery,” Jacobs said. “Why would taxpayers do this?”

The two plaintiffs, teenage minors known as D.Kh. and John Doe, are suing Arizona Medicaid because Medicaid does not pay for breast removal surgeries. Plaintiffs are seeking an injunction barring Arizona Medicaid from complying with its own gender reassignment coverage rules. Doe was 15 and DH 17 when they filed the lawsuit.

“D.Kh. and John are unable to receive medical attention, which is an important next step in their ongoing treatment of gender dysphoria, ”the lawsuit says. “As long as the exception is in force, they are prohibited from performing male breast reconstruction surgery.”

Jamie Snyder, director of Arizona’s health care cost containment system, is the defendant in the case.

Since then DH turned 18 and dropped out of the case.

The lower court rejected the injunction, ruling that the plaintiffs had not proven that they were likely to succeed in their claim that their exclusion from coverage violated Medicaid Act.

John Doe has filed an appeal to be heard in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on November 19 in Phoenix.

“These two children suffered from mental illness, including attempted suicide,” Jacobs said. “And, of course, they are going to band together and say that these suicide attempts are due to the fact that they did not have sex confirmation surgery.”

There are also no studies that show surgery will prevent these children from committing suicide, Jacobs said.

“It’s actually the other way around,” she said. “There was a 19 percent increase in the number of suicidal surgeries after surgery.”

A note by amici curae (friends of the court) presented to teens who underwent double mastectomy but now regretted the surgery said they “believed that removing their healthy breasts would solve their gender dysphoria and allow them to live healthy, well-adjusted lives,” but later learned that the operation “did not solve the psychological problems underlying their gender dysphoria, but only increased their distress as they realized that they had irreversibly changed their bodies based on ideology.”

One of the teens is Kira Bell, a 24-year-old woman who changed her mind and “switched” after sex reassignment surgery in the UK. She sued the UK National Health Service’s clinic for transgender youth, which in three visits led her to a “devastating experiment” with puberty blockers at age 16, followed by a double mastectomy. The court later ruled that it was unlikely that children under 16 would give informed consent to such puberty-blocking drugs.

Jacobs blames transgender activists, the media, Hollywood, the medical community and public schools for indoctrinating susceptible teens, often suffering from depression, into the belief that they must permanently change their bodies through surgery to be happier. She disagrees with gender affirmative therapy, which she believes only reinforces indoctrination for already bewildered children.

“All this transgenderism is part of a wider social contagion that is happening, and all over Tik Tok and YouTube you can find pictures of young girls with big smiles before and after … the sheer euphoria of having their breasts removed,” she said. …

Jacobs said the growing trend among teenagers with gender dysphoria to remove their breasts and then post images of their surgical scars on social media is shocking and similar to anorexic girls posting images and videos of them getting thinner and thinner.

“YouTube really had a responsibility to fix all of these problems,” Jacobs said. “But it’s the same. It is a social infection where girls think they will be happy and that their mental illness will be eradicated if they just cut off their breasts. ”

If the court ruled in favor of taxpayer-funded surgeries in Arizona, Jacobs expects the case to go to the Supreme Court.
