James Madara, CEO of the American Medical Association (AMA), issued an open letter to the National Governors Association calling all legislative efforts to stop the transgender mutilation of children “a dangerous government intrusion into the practice of medicine.”

According to Madara, permanently altering a child’s hormones with pharmaceutical chemicals and surgically altering their private parts “are normal variations of human identity and expression” that should not be interfered with by government officials.
“As with all medical interventions, physicians are guided by their ethical duty to act in the best interest of their patients and must tailor recommendations about specific interventions and the timing of those interventions to each patient’s unique circumstances,” Madara’s letter further contends.
“Such decisions must be sensitive to the child’s clinical situation, nurture the child’s short and long-term development, and balance the need to preserve the child’s opportunity to make important life choices autonomously in the future.”
Madara’s letter comes as 16 states and counting have taken action to prohibit doctors from performing transgender surgeries and procedures on minors. Arkansas became the first state to ban the surgeries after the state’s legislature voted to override Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s vet of the “Save Adolescents from Experimentation Act.”
The SAFE Act bars doctors from cutting off or otherwise mutilating children’s private parts, as well as bans them from administering puberty blockers or “top” and “bottom” surgeries on children.
More than half of all Americans oppose transgender mutilation of children
As it turns out, opposition to mutilating children with pharmaceutical drugs and surgeries is bipartisan. A recent survey from the conservative think-tank The Heritage Foundation found that at least 57 percent of Americans oppose the transgender mutilation of children under any circumstances.
According to the transgender lobby, this is an unacceptable form of “transphobia” that must be abolished so underage children can “live their truth” by pretending to be the opposite sex, or no sex at all.
Madara appears to feel the same, though he wraps it up in much more politically correct language to make it sound like the transgender mutilation of children is no different than any other kind of “medicine” that doctors might prescribe to their patients.
Prohibiting doctors from destroying a child’s life with irreversible drug therapies and surgeries “would insert the government into clinical decision-making and force physicians to disregard clinical guidelines,” Madara says.
“Transgender children, like all children, have the best chance to thrive when they are supported and can obtain the health care they need,” he further contends. “It is imperative that transgender minors be given the opportunity to explore their gender identity under the safe and supportive care of a physician.”
When contacted by The Daily Caller News Foundation for comment, the AMA did not immediately respond.
“The DNA-deniers in the Democrat Party think men dressed as women and suffering from the perverse psychosis of gender dysphoria should be allowed to expose themselves in the same bathroom your young daughter is in,” warned one of our own commenters about the implications of what Madara is suggesting.
“It’s not like these men dressing up as women couldn’t just use the stalls in the men’s room. After all, their Y chromosomes outed them as men, no matter what they personally believe. Science says so.”
Another pointed out that the justification for trying to ban all this is a correct approach because minor children are unable to understand and properly consent to permanently destroying their bodies with deadly chemicals and surgeries.
“How can anybody justify life-altering treatment to a minor?” this person asks. “They can’t. Let them wait until they are legally competent.”

‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
