In this case, a very profitable number for this doctor…
A video has resurfaced of her from 2020 claiming that when it comes to performing sex change surgery on minors, “age is just a number.”
She went on to suggest that a child’s maturity was more important than their exact age. Watch the video at the Daily Mail here.
The good doctor says that at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, they perform ‘top surgery’ on patients as young as 14, which involves removing or implanting breasts.
According to the Daily Mail article, when asked about whether there were age limits in place for sex change surgeries, Dr. Dowshen said: ‘It is important to remember that age is a number. But as an adolescent medicine and developmental specialist, we know that where a child is cognitively and socially is more important than that exact number of their age.’
Here’s the kicker:
“Dr. Dowshen was also asked about the potentially life-altering effects of hormone drugs given to transgender minors, which can cause infertility. She said that many youngsters with gender dysphoria ‘are not interested in having children at all’.

These “gender affirming” surgeries are very costly. According to costhelperhealth:
“For patients not covered by health insurance, the typical cost of a sex reassignment surgery can range from about $15,000 for just reconstruction of the genitals to about $25,000 for operations on the genitals and chest to $50,000 or more for procedures that include operations to make facial features more masculine or feminine.”
Nice money to be made there for the clinic Dr Dowshen co-founded.
I’d like to see Dr. Dowshen go into a courtroom and tell the judge that when dealing with a minor, “age is just a number.”
These life-altering drugs and surgeries given to confused minors with gender dysphoria causes irreversible damage.
We need to pray that the current trend of mutilating minors comes to a complete stop.
We need to pray for our youth.
