Doctors around the country should stand up and refuse to administer sex-change surgeries to minors, neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson told the Daily Caller in an exclusive interview.
The Biden administration and Democrats, including President Joe Biden, have advocated for children to receive irreversible sex-change treatments, which they describe as “gender affirming care.” Many hospitals and states across the country support the treatments, including puberty blockers, chemical castration and the removal of healthy sex tissue, while others have made moves to set restrictions for minors.

“If you were working at a hospital and your hospital approached you and asked you to perform sex-change treatment on a minor, what would you do?” the Caller asked Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
“I would absolutely, adamantly refuse, in all circumstances,” Carson said.
“There’s a reason why they’re called minors. They don’t really know a lot of things, and they learn over the course of time as they become mature,” he added. “I suspect that in the future we will look back on this period of transgenderism and say, ‘How could those people be so foolish?’”
The Caller then asked Carson what he would advise for doctors who are currently practicing medicine.
“I would strongly recommend to doctors who currently practice that they remember the Hippocratic Oath, and that they first do no harm,” the former presidential candidate said. “And that they recognize that they’re expected to lead out in this area, and not be followers, and not be sheeple. But lead out, and to help people understand that children are in the process of maturation.”
