Dr. Oz Comes Out Against Transition Surgeries for Minors

Dr. Oz CHILD Announcement – It Involves Minors!

(TheRedWire.com) – The open Senate race to replace retiring Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) is heating up in Pennsylvania. Democratic candidate and Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman and Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz are running neck and neck as they try to distinguish themselves and make their cases to voters. Over the last year, transgender issues have become a political issue, especially concerning controversial medical procedures for children. On Tuesday, September 13, the celebrity doctor turned politician shared his view about minor transition surgeries with host Charlie Kirk.

Oz stated he disapproved of children receiving life-changing gender transition surgeries. During the primary, Republicans challenged him on this for talking about it favorably on his television show. The GOP nominee said as a television show host, his job involved giving voice to topics over a wide range of issues. He emphasized that discussing issues didn’t necessarily mean he agreed. The Senate candidate added he has been unequivocal that he supports science as the basis for decision-making, not its perversion or weaponization for a political purpose.

Expressing similar thoughts regarding the Green New Deal, Oz stated many who advocate for the climate change plan believe it’s the only way to protect the environment. Yet, he said he doesn’t believe it is. The GOP candidate noted that the Green New Deal couldn’t achieve its goals in the timeframe the policy creators dictated. He argued against manipulating and weaponizing science for political gain. Instead, following advice given to him by his father, Oz advised, “Let’s be the party of better ideas.”
