President Joe Biden’s new 2024 budget plan, released on Thursday, places heavy emphasis on advancing the administration’s “equity and equality” programmes, proposing to funnel some of the $137.9 billion discretionary budget for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) towards “providing gender affirming care to the Nation’s veterans.”
According to the 184-page fiscal plan, the Biden administration “remains steadfast in its commitment to invest in opportunities for women and girls and support the needs of marginalized communities, including the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex community.”
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” Romans 1:21-22
“Reflective of that commitment,” the document continues, “the Budget requests more than $3 billion to advance gender equity and equality across a broad range of sectors.” The VA announced in 2021 that it was lifting a 20-year ban on funding surgeries and drug protocols for so-called “gender transitioning,” thereby permitting the use of taxpayer dollars to go towards the controversial programmes.
The new budget seeks to take advantage of the VA ruling on supposed transgender services, noting that, “In addition to ending the ban on transgender service, the Administration is committed to providing gender affirming care to the Nation’s veterans – and last year, the VA announced that it was extending survivor benefits to certain survivors of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex veterans.”
Despite pushing for transgender surgeries and drugs to be facilitated by taxpayer funds as “care,” new research into the use of cross-sex hormones, the results of which were published last month by the American College of Cardiology, shows that “people with gender dysphoria taking hormone replacements as part of gender affirmation therapy [sic] face a substantially increased risk of serious cardiac events, including stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism.”
