A coalition of thousands of Catholic and religious medical professionals sent a letter Tuesday confronting three top medical groups that had urged the Justice Department to investigate and prosecute critics of “gender-affirming medicine.”
“We write this open letter in response to your correspondence dated October 3, 2022, to Attorney General [Merrick] Garland,” the letter, led by the Catholic Medical Association (CMA), begins.
The CMA is a national organization of more than 2,000 health care professionals that uphold the principles of the Catholic faith in the science and practice of medicine.
“Expression of concern over the ability of youth to understand and consent to irreversible surgical interventions that result in loss of fertility and adult sexual function does not constitute harassment or intimidation,” CMA argued.
