The case of a British Columbia trans-identifying teenage girl who wanted her breasts removed against the objections of her mother is back in court today after a judge prohibited a doctor from performing the surgery. That surgeon and another doctor, who prescribed the girl high dose testosterone, are now attempting to anonymize their names.

Last Tuesday, a Vancouver Supreme Court judge issued a Without Notice injunction ordering cosmetic surgeon Dr. Daniel Mckee against moving forward with a double mastectomy for a 17-year-old girl, who wishes to be seen as a male. The mother of the girl sued general practitioner Dr. Andrea Szewchuk for prescribing her daughter testosterone without seeking her permission.

The Nov. 3 injunction is believed to be the first order of its kind in Canada.

“I am appalled by the lack of any clinical standards and medical protocols that permit doctors to give gender-changing steroids and mastectomies to traumatized teenage girls caught up in a fad who wish they were boys," said the mother, known as A.M., in a statement sent to The Christian Post Thursday.

“I am shocked the government through TransCare BC supports such unscientific and very risky experimentation. There is little evidence the irreversible treatment lessens gender dysphoria or reduces the 19 times normal suicide rate." 

The Vancouver court is forbidding that the mother's or child's name be mentioned.

Both doctors involved in the attempted gender-transitioning of the girl are applying to have their names anonymized so that their identities are not public.

The mother added that she finds it "outrageous" that Canadian school curricula, SOGI 123 (sexual orientation and gender identity), pushes troubled girls into gender clinics when proper psychiatric care is what is needed.

“Worst of all, the law lets it all be kept secret from parents," she said.
