Pediatricians Concerned About "Homosexual" Misinformation in School

Should public schools identify and affirm students as "gay" or "transgender"?

Are there health risks associated with affirming students who question their gender and/or sexuality?

Out of concern for the health and well being of all youth, the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) has mailed a letter to the superintendents of all public schools in the country, expressing their concerns.

In the first paragraph of the letter, the ACP states, "We are increasingly concerned, however, that in many cases efforts to help students who exhibit same-sex attractions and/or gender confusion are based on incomplete or inaccurate information."

They further state that when dealing with adolescents experiencing same-sex attractions, "It is essential to understand there is no scientific evidence that an individual is born 'gay' or 'transgender', in fact there is evidence that there are multiple factors---primarily social and familial, that predispose a child to homosexual attraction and/or gender confusion."

They also state, with evidence, "that the majority of sexually questioning youth ultimately adopt a heterosexual identity."

They say, "When parents or others allow or encourage a child to behave and be treated as the opposite sex, the confusion is reinforced and the child is conditioned for a life of unnecessary pain and suffering. Even when motivated by noble intentions, schools can ironically play a detrimental role if they reinforce this disorder."

The pediatrician's position stands, for the most part, polar opposite of what is presently taught in public school classrooms. Current materials, as you know, are often provided by Planned Parenthood and various homosexual advocacy groups.

I have provided a link to the pediatrician's specially designed website with further links to the letter they sent and answers to the most important questions on the subject.

If you are a parent or grandparent, or teacher, for that matter, I strongly recommend you take a few minutes and review their information and evidence. I would then encourage you to forward this to any and all school teachers, school administrators and friends with whom you have contact.

The positions taken by the pediatricians are not politically correct, but I believe their positions and their evidence is correct. They will be publicly attacked for these positions.

The ACP has created a special website and are directing school superintendents and others to review their information. It is FactsAboutYouth.com

On this site you will find links to their letter and other pertinent information. They ask the questions and give the answers.

The battle for our children continues, often under the guise of care and concern by some with a primary commitment to indoctrination and recruitment, others, simply misinformed.

Thank God for those who are willing to stand in the gap and take the hits. May God bless you and them.

Thank you for your support.

  1. Well, misinformation is certainly what one will find on the "facts" about youth website. Let's start with the misinformation about ACP, they are not a medical group but a political one specifically formed to promote an anti-gay agenda, they admit as much on the about us section of their website.

    The idea that ACP and their materials aren't politically correct is also misinformation. They are just politically correct opinions among groups like Gary's. Just look at their statement of purpose and beliefs. The start with the conclusions and mold the "science" to fit.

    Far from standing in the gap and "taking the hits" this group is standing in the gap and dishing out the hits -- to LGBT students. They are providing cover for anti-gay bigots to claim that their beliefs have any basis in fact.

  2. Parents, those who do not know God are after your children, one way or another.

    Parents may equip their children by talking to them about how they will mature in Christ, find the opposite sex attractive, learn how to conduct themselves in acceptable ways, being an example of goodness, purity, kindness, contentment, and other virtues that are in Jesus.

    Parents may tell their children their hopes they have for them, that they will be on social dates,
    behave themselves wisely, keep themselves pure, and one day find a mate that God has brought them to, for the purpose of marriage, family, and an inheritance incorrupible, reserved for them in heaven...

  3. Edmonds, WA, Research the Bilderburg Group to find why the government is trying to take total control of the people by distroying the constitution. It's a real eye opener. Research the book, The Obama Nation to peel back the real Muslim, anti-American.

  4. Who would you rather believe? The Amercian College of Pediatricians founded in 2002 or the American Academy of Pediatrics, founded in 1930 and has over 60,000 members?

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (of which my father is a member) has a link on the front page of their website specifically warning about the misinformation contained in the letter from the American College of Pediatricians.

    The American College of Pediatricians posted links to "various rebuttals" of the American Academy of Pediatrics original pamphlet entitled "Just the Facts" on the www.factsaboutyouth.com website, however their rebuttals are completely non-scientific. They site NARTH (national association for research and therapy of homosexuality) twice. They cite themselves once, and they cite a religious civil liberties law firm.

    How come they can not get ONE respected medical organization to back up their claims??
