Children’s National Hospital acknowledges in a shocking audio tape that they perform gender-affirming genital surgery on children, including 16-year-olds.
In the clip, a hospital nurse tells Chaya Raichik that her 16-year-old daughter can receive a gender-affirming hysterectomy there. Raichik said she wondered if they’d do it for a gender-confused 16-year-old. Yes, said the staffer. Raichik said it’s great, asking if it’s normal at that age.

The healthcare worker said all ages come for it. Raichik wonders if it’s a hysterectomy. Staff confirmed.
Raichik asks what age they’d start. The employee replies, “I’ve seen younger kids.” “Due to HIPAA, I can’t disclose, but I’ve seen younger children.”
Libs of TikTok stated that the hospital received more attention after a reporter “stumbled across” its website, which says it “treats young children aged 0 to 21 for gynecological care and gender-affirming surgical procedures, including hysterectomies.”
Children’s National Hospital informed The Daily Wire on Thursday that it is dedicated to providing LGBTQ+ patients and families with comprehensive treatment.
The hospital’s publicity team said it does not perform gender-affirming surgery on minors. “We do not provide hormone therapy to children before puberty begins. Care is individualized for each patient and always involves families making decisions in coordination with a team of highly trained pediatric specialists.”
The hospital’s PR staff informed The Daily Wire that the audio tape “reflects a call with hospital operators, not a patient care provider.”
The hospital indicated they don’t do gender-affirming surgery on minors. They said they don’t provide youngsters hormone therapy before puberty.
The statement stated that care is personalized for each youngster, and families make decisions with a team of pediatric professionals.
The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh this week focused on medical professionals in the U.S. giving transgender “treatment” that is irrevocably hurting children and called on doctors to criticize the American Academy of Pediatrics publicly (AAP).
Walsh noted on “The Matt Walsh Show” that he hears from pediatricians and professionals who oppose hormone blockers and medical transitioning, but confidentiality is not helpful.
“It’s good, but it’s not nearly enough,” Walsh said. “And I understand [you’d] be putting your career on the line. That takes a lot of courage … but that is what’s required.”
“I know that some are listening to me right now,” he continued. “And what I want to say to you is that it is not good enough to be anonymous. You have a responsibility to speak up publicly and put your name on it.”
“And if you want to do that and you want a platform, if you’re ready and willing to come out publicly and speak out against this stuff — especially if you’re a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics — and you’re ready to do the right thing with your name on it, then reach out to me,” Walsh offered. “I’ll make sure your concerns are heard because anonymously posting on message boards and sending private emails to conservative podcasters doesn’t help.”
“You’re the first line of defense,” he stated. “You’re the people that we need.”
