    Surge Summary: It’s evident the Centers for Disease Control has been co-opted for ideological purposes: the agency is now offering guidance on “chestfeeding”, i.e., attempts for trans-gender “women” (biological men) to produce breast milk using off-label hormones.

    “Officials of the Biden administration must stay up nights thinking of new and exotic ways to push the agenda of the Sexual Revolution,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “The latest example is ‘guidance’ from the Centers for Disease Control on how men can breastfeed – or ‘chestfeed,’ as activists prefer.”

    Morse explained: “The CDC website offers advice to men who’ve taken hormones to stimulate the growth of breasts to induce lactation. Quantities of these hormones will be absorbed by the infant. The FDA has warned that one of them ‘can frequently give babies an irregular heartbeat as a result.’”

    Dr. Jane Orient, Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, stated: “We have no idea what the long-term effects on the child will be [if a breastfeeding trans woman uses] all kinds of off-label hormones… A lot of people are pushing for off-label use of a drug… It’s become so politicized that you can do all kinds of things for a politically approved purpose.”

    “I agree with Dr. Orient,” Morse said. “Once again, the scientific/medical establishment is putting its seal of approval on experimenting on children to satisfy adult desires. It’s shameful.”

    The term “off-label” means using a drug for a different purpose than the one it has been approved for. Some medications required to induce lactation in trans women are not approved for boosting milk production in America.

    Dr. Stuart Fischer, an internal medicine physician in New York, stated: “The idea that breast milk produced by trans women is comparable to breast milk made by biological women is very hard to believe. If it’s been tested a handful of times, how would we know the long-range effect? The short-term is one thing, but the long-term in terms of physical and mental illness… who knows? It’s an emerging field, to put it mildly.”

    Morse concludes: “With all of the health crises our nation confronts, you’d think the CDC could find something better to do with its time than pander to the fantasies of the so-called trans community. This is not authentic science. This is not responsible medicine.”

    “The Centers for Disease Control was once an important linchpin of the American public health system. This episode shows that they have become the tool of a special interest group, which is pasting a thin veneer of science and medicine over a purely ideological policy.”
