  • Dr. Haim explains the role of surgical residents in big teams at large hospitals, emphasizing their responsibilities in patient care.
  • He recalls the high standard of medical care at Texas Children's Hospital, one of the largest and best children's hospitals in the world.

Entrance of ideology and censorship (00:03:54)

  • The medical profession and society's institutions have transformed, prioritizing ideology over morality, evidence, and science.
  • Truth became subjective, based on individual claims rather than objective observation or measurement.
  • This ideological shift guided medical interventions, such as mask mandates, lockdowns, and social distancing, without scientific basis.
  • Censorship prevented questioning or debating these ideologies, especially in academic medical centers.
  • Witnessing the severe repercussions for questioning led to a personal understanding of the impact of censorship.
  • During this time, the speaker became familiar with the sound of mothers grieving the loss of their children.
  • The pandemic lockdown led to the implementation of medical practices not based on evidence, such as social distancing, mask mandates, and strict censorship.
  • This changed medical culture dramatically, allowing hospitals to insist that ill patients suffer and die alone without seeing loved ones.
  • The lockdown also led to increased child abuse due to lack of school monitoring and economic stress.
  • The medical establishment's participation in these practices created a culture of shame and silence, preventing doctors from speaking out against harmful interventions.
  • The acceptance of lockdown lies and cancel culture set the stage for the spread of further lies, such as the promotion of gender-affirming care.
  • Gender-affirming care lacks therapeutic rationale and evidence-based support.
  • The spread of gender-affirming care was facilitated by the culture of compliance and silence already established in the medical community.
  • The language used in gender-affirming care is anti-language, diametrically opposed to the truth, and highly manipulative.

A sense of shame, potential criminal liability (00:11:23)

  • Dr. Haim felt a sense of shame and knew that what was being done to children was wrong.
  • Texas Children's Hospital released a public statement in March 2022 saying they would shut down their transgender clinic due to potential criminal liability.
  • Dr. Haim knew the statement was a lie because he worked there and people had told him they were still performing gender-affirming procedures on children.

They admitted it publicly (00:15:30)

  • The directors of the transgender program spoke at the hospital's prestigious Grand Rounds lecture series in January 2023, discussing their approach to hormone therapy and fertility preservation in children.
  • A social worker from the program admitted during a Zoom conference with medical students that they actively concealed the existence of the program from governing bodies to avoid leaving a paper trail.
  • The Grand Rounds lectures and Zoom conferences were open to the public, so hundreds of people knew about the hospital's actions despite their public statement.

The WPATH Files, delayed emotional reaction (00:16:54)

  • Dr. Eithan Haim, a surgeon at Texas Children's Hospital, expressed ethical and legal concerns about the hospital's gender-affirming care program, which he believes harms children by mutilating and sterilizing them.
  • Dr. Haim felt compelled to expose the program's practices despite the potential consequences, driven by a sense of shame and responsibility towards his patients, profession, and daughter.
  • The YouTube video hosted by Dr. Haim discusses allegations of illegal gender-affirming care at Texas Children's Hospital, raising concerns about the hospital's approach to gender-affirming care for minors and highlighting specific cases and controversies surrounding the program.

  • The speaker believes that living by the truth is the only way to live appropriately.
  • There were children who were being harmed and the speaker felt compelled to do something about it.

  • The Department of Justice officials claimed that Dr. Haim had no right to blow the whistle and should have protested outside with a sign instead.

The impulse to demonize the whistleblower (00:49:00)

  • People find it hard to believe the truth about institutions when they are mostly sane and have integrity.
  • It's easy to assume whistleblowers are troublemakers or have something fundamentally wrong with them.
  • Demonizing whistleblowers is a valid strategy when institutions are corrupt because it can discredit them even if they are innocent.

Blood sacrifice for the empire of lies (00:51:11)

  • People are waking up to the corruption of the justice system and realizing that whistleblowers are being destroyed.
