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.  

Opponents of a ballot measure that would ban abortion in Colorado after 22 weeks of pregnancy, except in cases where the mother’s life is at risk, have raised $8.7 million — about 14 times as much as the groups pushing the initiative. 

And leading up to Election Day, the limited polling data available suggests Proposition 115 is too close to call. 

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has spoken of his concern that religious liberty is under threat in the United States. The justice spoke out on Thursday about a range of issues which, he said, were challenging basic legal freedoms in the country.

The justice warned that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic was acting as a “stress test” for Constitutional liberties, and that religious liberty as an emerging “disfavored” and “second tier” right.

The vast majority of Americans, regardless of their political affiliation, support the preservation of single-sex spaces and women's sports as female-only, a new survey has found. 

The poll, which was conducted by Spry Strategies on behalf of Women's Liberation Front, found that a majority of likely voters in the 2020 election object to "gender identity" policies, including the Equality Act, which passed in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives last year.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden pledged again on Friday to sign the Equality Act, which would force public schools to allow biological males who identify as transgender girls into female athletics.

In a statement released by his campaign, Biden pledged to sign the bill while condemning what he called an “epidemic” of violence “against transgender and gender non-conforming people.”
