• ‘Big Tech’ Censorship: YouTube Shuts Down Doc’s Comments on Trans Surgery

    Surge Summary: YouTube offers a fresh example of “Big Tech” censoring viewpoints with which it disagrees, in this instance, banning a video in which a medical doctor condemns trans-gender surgical procedures which mutilate individuals.

    YouTube: “Criticizing Transgender Surgery = Hate”
    Ruth Institute: “Banning Speech = Cowardice”

    Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., condemned YouTube’s ban of a Daily Signal/Heritage Foundation video with Dr. Michelle Cretella, M.D., over her comment on transgenderism.

    In the 2017 interview, Cretella, an eminent pediatrician and executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, said: “If you want to cut off a leg or an arm, you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a penis, you’re transgender.”

    YouTube claims this violates its hate speech code.

    “The Sexual Revolutionaries running YouTube are cowards,” Dr. Morse said. “They cannot refute Dr. Cretella and the Heritage Foundation. They ban their opponents instead of confronting them. Big Tech is making Big Brother seem benign.”

    Morse added: “Dr. Cretella’s remarks did not promote violence toward or hatred of anyone. Instead, it’s the type of mutilation which Cretella spoke against that’s an act of violence. YouTube calling a perfectly reasonable remark by a medical professional hate speech, is their way of justifying their ban.”

    Cretella appeared in the October 4 edition of The Dr. J Show, the Ruth Institute’s new video podcast. She and Morse discussed a variety of concerns, including the medical consequences of so-called gender-transitioning. The Ruth Institute is urging its supporters to promote this interview as a way to counter the censorship against our friends at the Heritage Foundation.

    In another case the Ruth Institute has been involved with, divorced parents were in a bitter custody dispute. The wife wanted to transition her seven-year-old son to a transgendered “female.” The husband fought it. After a public outcry, the judge granted joint custody. But she also issued a gag order preventing the parties from discussing the case publicly. Morse said, “This is another outrageous example of censorship involving transgenderism.”

    “We intend to keep fighting to get the truth out, regardless of what Big Tech thinks or does,” Morse said.

    The Ruth Institute is a global interfaith non-profit organization equipping Christians to defend the family and build a civilization of love.
