Interview by Gary Powell with Jennifer Lahl

"Bad ideas generate victims. Our work at the CBC -Center for Bioethics and Culture- is to question and criticise these kinds of unhealthy ideas before they cause harm to people". This is the uncompromising and unequivocal message of Jennifer Lahl, founder and president of the CBCwhich is based in California. With 25 years of experience as a former paediatric intensive care nurse, hospital administrator and senior nursing executive, she is used to recognising problems and pursuing solutions with unfailing drive and determination.

A few days ago his new film - Trans Mission: What's the Rush to Reassign Gender? -Mission Trans: Why the urgency to reassign gender?- about thethe effect on children and their parents of the recent growth in the promotion of gender ideology in the West, with the consequent a dramatic increase in the number of children sent to gender clinics who have been offered radical pharmaceutical and medical practices with irreversible outcomes.

An experienced, award-winning director and producer, Jennifer's previous films include Eggsploitation (2010, updated 2013), Anonymous Father's Day (2011), Breeders: A Subclass of Women? (2014), Maggie's Story (2015), Compassion and Choice: Denied (2016) e #BigFertility: It's All About the Money (2018).

Trans Mission is the first film in which Jennifer examines the extreme impact of transgender medicine and ideology on the rights of children and their parents.

Trans Mission is of great interest to many of us, both inside and outside the LGB community, deeply concerned about the deleterious impact that gender ideology could have on children with its ideological takeover of key Western institutionsincluding the medical, psychological and psychotherapeutic professions. Jennifer kindly agreed to be interviewed by Lesbian and Gay News at the launch of the film (which can be viewed for free at the link below). At this point, I must declare a personal interest: firstly, because I myself appear in the film, and secondly because I am a member of the CBC staff as European special advisor.

GaryI know you are a director, but this is a new field for you. Why did you make this film?

JenniferMost of the films I have made in the past concerned assisted reproductive technologies. and in particular what is often referred to as conception on behalf of third partiesrenting wombs or buying and selling eggs and sperm to conceive children. I have focused mainly on these issues as a result of my career in paediatric nursing and also because of my strong interest in science, technology, medicine and the law, particularly the rights of women and children who are often the most harmed by these practices. Progressively, I have witnessed the shift from 'men who have children', who are actually men who have children because they buy eggs and rent wombs, to the inclusion of trans men and women who have children through assisted reproductive technologies, and finally to the inclusion of trans women who now want womb transplants. It was this that led to an increase in my interest in an area I was already involved in.

In addition, as I was heavily involved in paediatric nursing in the past, the issue of allowing children to make the medical and surgical transition was something I wanted to address in this film. Not so long ago, it would have been unthinkable for a family doctor to recommend medical or surgical transition to a child; rather, a longer-term and more holistic approach would have been taken to supporting children suffering from gender dysphoria. As with most of my films, the aim is to make the educate people and try to raise important questions and start conversations based on information and evidence and not only on opinions or ideologies - or, at worst, on inaccurate evidence.

Is there any reason that holds together the harmful practices of Third Party Assisted Reproduction and the extremism of transgender ideology that promotes the transition of children?

Third Party Assisted Reproduction (the buying and selling of eggs and sperm, and the renting of wombs) - what I often refer to as #BigFertility - is a multi-billion dollar a year global giant.

At first it was heterosexual couples struggling with infertility who needed a third party to help them have a baby. Then the men started having children and even launched an organisation, Men Having Babies. But if you know the biology of human reproduction, you will know that men need women, their ovaries and their wombs to have children. And now we are instead left with 'trans women' who want uterine transplants so that biological males can have children.

With the transing of children, #BigPharma has begun to lure children into a life of pharmaceutical dependency through puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones that do nothing but render these children permanently sterile before they are old enough to pierce their own ears without parental consent.

When these children and their parents agree to their medical and surgical "transition", they are offered the "fertility preservation'. - so, if they want, they can freeze their eggs and sperm for use after they have been made sterile. If these young girls freeze their eggs before opting for a hysterectomy, who will carry their embryos for their surrogate pregnancies later? What sperm will fertilise them? If these males freeze their sperm during transition, whose eggs will they fertilise? Who will manage these embryos? These connections between fertility, infertility and children made infertile, is the new expansion of #BigFertility. I have been writing about this topic for years and producing documentaries about it.

How did you choose the voices we hear in the film?

I thought about all the stakeholders and tried to listen and hear many of these voices. This is not an exhaustive list because the film is only fifty minutes long. But I interviewed seventeen people in total, including medical experts who oppose the transition of children and others who support it. In the film, you will meet and listen to paediatric endocrinologists, a paediatrician, a teenage psychiatrist, activists, an evolutionary biologist, some parents with children at various stages of gender dysphoria or transition, and you will also hear from the important items of detransitionerspeople who have medically and surgically transitioned and regretted their decision - so much so that they have returned to living according to the sex they were born with.

Who is this film for?

The main audience consists of parents of underage children. We wanted to talk to them first because they might have children with gender dysphoria or know other children who are dealing with this problem. Maybe their children attend school with a child who identifies as transgender. Parents are members of school councils, or PTAs, or lead girl or boy scout groups and often need to better understand the problem. Then it is the young adults, the medical staff, the media and of course the this issue is animating a heated debate in many state and federal legislatures here in the United States, where I live.

What do you hope will be the result of this film?

As it is an educational film, it would be wonderful if the public could be more informed and able to participate in this kind of debate. Having worked in nursing for a long time, I can say that informed consent was always very important to me when talking to my patients and their parents (often my patients were too young to understand). I want to make sure that people know what are the important questions to ask, and that they get correct answers to their questions. This way they can weigh up the risks and benefits. If the people who watch this film come out of it better informed, I will be very happy. And if the laws were to change to better protect children, that would also be a wonderful and much appreciated achievement.

Do you expect trans activists to try to have the film cancelled?

It is difficult to answer, because I tend to be a very optimistic person and I want to think that this film will not be cancelled or censored, as it is quite balanced and rational. But I have witnessed what so-called trans activists have done to some of my friends and colleagues, so I have seen their utter unreasonableness when something is said or done that does not fit neatly into their parameters of conversation and civilised dialogue. The film will be broadcast and we will do everything we can to keep the film available for free streaming, even if this means constantly looking for new hosting and streaming platforms where people can watch the film.

UK, you can no longer say 'woman' or 'mother': woke provisions of the General Medical Council
Decision of unprecedented violence by the British Medical Register: the word woman must be deleted at every level. It cannot even be mentioned when discussing motherhood, childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause. Even 999, the emergency number, can no longer ask what sex the person asking for help is. The woke know very well that the female body is the main obstacle to the transhuman project. And they want to erase it even in language
It keeps happening: women and mothers must also be erased from the vocabulary, at every level. They do not give up because the maternal symbolic is the most resistant obstacle to the transhuman project. We will not give up either. Forget it The General Medical Council -the public body that maintains the official register of doctors in the UK- has replaced the word 'mother' with neutral terms in its maternity guide for staff. The updated guide for employees who become pregnant omits [...]

Female wombs in male bodies
The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists
Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]

Appeal to the FDA: no more silence on puberty-blocking drugs
A petition asks the US drug agency -which has never authorised the off-label use of these substances for girls and boys with dysphoria- to counter the misinformation that propagates these treatments as effective and safe and to demand studies to prove it.Between 207 and 2021, the number of minors treated has more than doubled and the FDA can no longer pretend it is blind.
On his site Gender Clinic News Bernard Lane reports on an important petition to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, US drug regulator) to take urgent action on the unapproved (off label) use of hormone suppressant drugs to block puberty in girls and boys who identify as transgender. Although this use has never been approved by the FDA, it is not possible for the agency to ignore the possible harm to minors who are subjected to these [...].

Denmark: no more hormones for children! Even trans people say so
After the UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway and the Netherlands also Denmark says stop to puberty blockers for gender non-conforming girls: those drugs are experimental and there is no scientific evidence that they work. But here the government initiative is supported by important LGBT associations: this is the first time it has happened. And in Italy? You cannot even know how many minors are treated
Denmark is also backtracking on puberty blockers for children confused about their sex: the Danish health system will henceforth offer psychological therapies and no longer drugs to adolescents who have not reported discomfort with their birth sex since childhood. This was announced by Health Minister Sophie Løhde during a parliamentary debate that rejected a proposal by the populist Nye Borgerlige (New Zealand) party to completely ban gender transition for minors.

Spain: inmate pregnant with trans cellmate
The man -intact male body and no hormone therapy- had asked and obtained to be moved to the women's prison in Alicante because he 'self-perceived' to be a woman (self-id). A cellmate's pregnancy was the result. And the new Ley Trans, in force since December 2022, will make such transfers easier and more frequent
In the Alicante Cumplimiento Penitentiary Centre, known as Fontcalent Prison, an inmate identifying himself as a woman impregnated a cellmate. According to the account confirmed by several prison sources, the inmate had been serving a sentence in the male module of the prison for several years, but during his stay he started to identify himself as a woman. On his papers he continues to appear as a man and has never undergone hormone treatment, let alone surgery. [...]

Escaping trans madness
'I want it to be known that there is hope. Young people with 'gender dysphoria' and their families can be helped with a psychological course,' writes American psychiatrist Miriam Grossman in her latest book. Explaining in detail and empathically her therapeutic proposal. And indicating in the hammering propaganda of the transcult the most insidious obstacle
Miriam Grossman is an American psychiatrist. The following is an edited extract published by Gender Clinic News of her new essay Lost in Trans Nation: A Child Psychiatrist's Guide Out of the Madness. It is a very interesting and 'empathetic' read, especially for those families facing the problem of a teenage daughter/daughter with 'gender discomfort'. James sports a scruffy beard. Sarah wears skirts and doesn't bother with pronouns. Taylor wants to talk about college, not the [...]
