Discussed by Dr. Jennifer Bauwens
with Family Research Council (www.FRC.org)

Planned Parenthood is now the second top provider of “gender-affirming/gender bending care” in the US.

Dr. Jennifer Bauwens is the Director of the Center for Family Studies at the Family Research Council. Today she discusses the disgusting new antics from Planned Parenthood that have absolutely nothing to do with abortion, but are just as despicable. She also explains how and why the transgender movement is vulnerable right now, especially in their open recruitment of children.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why are many tween and teen girls going to Planned Parenthood now? Dr. Bauwens reveals that many times they don’t even have to visit the clinic! They are doing tele-visits!

About six years ago, did then-President of Planned Parenthood, Cecil Richards, look into the future and build a new cash-cow profit center focused on the trans-movement?

Are whistleblowers now revealing the truth about what goes on behind closed Planned Parenthood doors regarding “gender-affirming/gender bending care”? Dr. Bauwens reveals how one whistleblower went from managing a Wendy’s to writing prescriptions!

Why are European nations putting the brakes on pediatric gender transition?

Do studies reveal that 90-95% of those with transgender thoughts return to their biological sex in adulthood?

Is the exponential explosion of the number of “questioning” teens indicative of a follow-the-leader mentality, aggressive recruiting, or a combination of both?

Discussed by Dr. Jeff Barrows
with Christian Medical and Dental Association www.CMDA.org

Disclaimer: Use caution when listening to this segment around young children. Issues discussed may be upsetting or hard for little ones to understand.

The Biden Administration is attempting to coerce the public into believing all healthcare professionals support the Left’s radical transgender agenda.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What did the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine inaccurately claim in a recent NPR interview? Dr. Barrows quotes Rachel and then says: “This is dangerous. It is wrong. And it is not based on science.”

Is there consensus in the medical community about the “value and the importance of gender-affirming care”?

Should gender-affirming care be promoted by the federal government? SHORT ANSWER: Absolutely Not! Dr. Barrows goes to further explain the lies that Rachel Levine is spreading…

Is the Biden administration attempting to coerce the public and bully healthcare professionals into not questioning support for gender-affirming care? Dr. Barrows explains Rule 1557 within the Affordable Care Act, which Rachel Levine is basically weaponizing…

Does the Christian Medical and Dental Associations have a professional obligation to question an ideology not based on scientific evidence that puts patients in harm’s way?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is the significance of the word “departure” in the Transfiguration Scripture passage? (2 Kings 2:2)

How did Jesus’ conversation with Moses and Elijah on the mountain represent the entire Old Testament? Why did they talk about Jesus’ departure from earth?

Why did Jesus instruct the disciples not to talk about his departure? (Luke 9:21-22)

How did the disciples respond to the vision of Moses and Elijah talking with Jesus on the mountain? Why did Peter want to stay on the mountain? What did he say to Jesus about what he had seen?

Leonard Ravenhill: “There is a price to be paid for spiritual growth.” Is what you’re living for worth Christ dying for?
