Mississippi Freedom Caucus Opposes AMA Childhood Genital Mutilation Policy
This week the Mississippi Freedom Caucus joined forces with state freedom caucuses across the nation to oppose the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the Children's Hospital Association (CHA) policy supporting childhood genital mutilation.
The letter states:
Now, with your advocacy of childhood genital mutilation, your call to investigate those who disagree with you, and your request for Big Tech to suppress constitutionally protected free speech that challenges your leftist ideology, you have lost whatever credibility you had left.
The letter further explains:
Furthermore, it is incredibly alarming that many of these atrocities are occurring at taxpayer-funded medical institutions. As members of the State Freedom Caucus Network and our state legislatures, we unequivocally declare that these procedures are outside the scope of the proper use of funds we have allocated to our respective hospitals. We will fulfill our duty to stand in the gap and stop harm to any child by unnatural and irreversible procedures. As state legislators, we are particularly charged with ensuring taxpayer-funded institutions take no part in furthering ethically and morally repugnant agendas inconsistent with the values of our states.
Collectively, and across the country, we will be pursuing a path to ensure no minors can receive these barbaric procedures. This includes calling on our governors to denounce this practice and using all available tools to end it. If proven non-compliant, these facilities will face repercussions for practices inconsistent with the values of the citizens of our states. This mutilation cannot and will not be tolerated in any form.
The Mississippi Freedom Caucus is the only organized group of legislators standing against this leftist agenda. We will stand firm in our effort to protect the children of Mississippi.
