A pro-life pediatric surgeon and medical school professor recently spoke out against the ongoing trend of addressing gender dysphoria with hormonal and surgical interventions, calling the practices “a medical atrocity” and malpractice. 

Dr. Michael Egnor, a professor of neurosurgery and pediatrics at the Stony Brook University’s medical school in New York, spoke with The Federalist editor Emily Jashinky during a podcast interview on Friday about the issue of so-called “gender transitions” in modern medicine.

“He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.” Genesis 5:2

“Something I’ve come to realize with the growth of ‘gender affirming surgery’ and ‘gender affirming medical care’ is that we’re right in the middle of an extraordinary medical atrocity, and I really felt that I had to speak out,” Egnor said in the interview.  

“I’m very pro-life, I very much oppose abortion, I think that’s a medical atrocity,” he added, going on to express similar views regarding the steps taken to “affirm” a person’s “gender identity.” 

As a professor, the doctor explained that he discusses various medical experiments which occurred in the past and are now condemned, such as those conducted by Nazis. 

“We point out that at the time, all of these atrocities were widely accepted in the medical community,” he said. “Eugenics was taught in practically all medical schools for many years.” 

Egnor recalled that he tells medical students “We’re doing bad things that people will be talking about in 50 years and we don’t necessarily know what they are because we’re right in the middle of it.”
