    Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) denied allegations Wednesday that it introduced its “gender-affirming” clinic as a scheme to “make money for the hospital” and that employees with “religious beliefs” were warned they would suffer “consequences” for not participating in the transgender medical interventions. Author and journalist Matt Walsh broke the story about Vanderbilt’s gender clinic that provides minors with body-mutilating surgeries and hormones that produce permanent, irreversible changes to children presented by parents as gender dysphoric. Walsh told Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tuesday night: We know for a fact…that [at] Vanderbilt they perform double mastectomies on minor girls…They give [children] irreversible hormone drugs that change their bodies permanently. Asked by Carlson if he has spoken to anyone from Vanderbilt University Medical Center about his findings, Walsh said he reached out to the hospital for a statement when he first published his report. “At first, they didn’t want to give a statement and they, and they actually just took down … they just deleted … their entire transgender clinic website, they wiped it from existence,” Walsh added, noting Vanderbilt released...
    Tennessee’s governor is calling for an investigation after a scandal emerged involving a transgender clinic at Vanderbilt University. “The ‘pediatric transgender clinic’ at Vanderbilt University Medical Center raises serious moral, ethical and legal concerns,” Lee said in a statement. “We should not allow permanent, life-altering decisions that hurt children or policies that suppress religious liberties, all for the purpose of financial gain. We have to protect Tennessee children, and this warrants a thorough investigation.” Initially, the scandal, which includes bragging about the cost that can be charged for a sex change surgery and targeting children for such activity, was reported by The Daily Wire‘s Matt Walsh on Twitter. Namely, Shayne Taylor, M.D., an assistant professor of medicine, noted in front of an audience that sex change surgeries are extremely lucrative, and that they are covered by the Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare. “These surgeries are labor intensive,” Taylor said. “They require a lot of follow-up. They require a lot of O.R. [operating room] time, and they make money – they make money for the hospital.” Taylor continued: And this...
    Thursday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy was joined on the newsmaker line by Tennessee Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson, who is calling for Vanderbilt Medical Center to cease all irreversible pediatric transgender surgeries until the Tennessee General Assembly convenes in January to complete investigations and propose legislation. Leahy: We are joined on our newsmaker line right now, our good friend, State Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson. Good morning, Jack. Johnson: Good morning, Michael and Clint. Good to be with you guys this morning. Leahy: Well, thanks, Jack. And I know you’re very busy. Yesterday, Jack, you met with Matt Walsh. And Matt Walsh uncovered this very controversial video of a couple of doctors at Vanderbilt’s gender clinic who said transgender surgeries are good because they make money for the hospital. And then another doctor said, if you don’t want to do these surgeries, you can leave if you’re a conscientious objector. The question is, what did you meet with...
    Live from Music Row Thursday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed all-star panelist Roger Simon in-studio to discuss Vanderbilt University’s pediatric transgender clinic and the life-altering gender surgeries being performed on minors. Leahy: In-studio, all-star panelist, my former boss at PJTV, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter, and senior contributing editor at The Epoch Times, Mr. Roger Simon. Good morning, Roger. Simon: Good morning, and it’s cooling off. Isn’t that nice? Leahy: It is, and mercifully so. Let’s get right to it. So, the big news: our friend Matt Walsh at The Daily Wire, you and I both went to the documentary … Simon: I wrote a review of it for Epoch Times. It was glowing. Leahy: Yes. It’s called What Is a Woman? Well, he released on Tuesday a videotape taken in 2018 of physicians at Vanderbilt University and Medical Center saying things like, transgender surgery: we’ll  make a lot of money at the hospital for it. And another doctor...
    by Greg Piper   Health care settings that advertise surgical and hormonal procedures for gender-confused youth as young as 13 are throwing their offerings down the memory hole, following exposure by critics of such procedures for children. Vanderbilt University Medical Center took down the pages for its transgender clinic and pediatric counterpart after conservative author Matt Walsh posted videos Tuesday of its officials calling the clinics financially lucrative and warning that resistant VUMC employees would face “consequences” for not participating. Tennessee Republicans responded with horror. “We should not allow permanent, life-altering decisions that hurt children or policies that suppress religious liberties, all for the purpose of financial gain,” Gov. Bill Lee said in a statement to Just the News. He called for “a thorough investigation” of pediatric procedures and religious discrimination at VUMC, a legally distinct entity from the university. Asked what that means, spokesperson Casey Sellers said Lee’s office has “shared concerns” with Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti. “A number of questions have been raised, and Tennesseans deserve answers,” she said. State Rep. William Lambert retweeted Walsh’s announcement that they and Sen. Jack Johnson met to hash...
    A female-to-male chest masculinization surgery, also called "top surgery," can bring in as much as $40,000, Taylor states. She also notes that a patient receiving "routine hormone treatment" will visit the clinic just a few times each year but "can bring in several thousands dollars ... and actually makes money for the hospital." \u201cVanderbilt opened its trans clinic in 2018. During a lecture the same year, Dr. Shayne Taylor explained how she convinced Nashville to get into the gender transition game. She emphasized that it's a "big money maker," especially because the surgeries require a lot of "follow ups"\u201d — Matt Walsh (@Matt Walsh) 1663703694 Taylor goes on to describe how vaginoplasty surgeries, in which a man is castrated and doctors surgically create a fake vagina using tissue from his penis, can make as much as $20,000 in revenue, citing data from the Philadelphia Center for Transgender Surgery. She excitedly states that figure is likely an "underestimate" given costs for hospital stay, post-op visits, anesthesia, and other associated medical bills. She adds that female-to-male "bottom...
    Vanderbilt University Monday announced plans for the University Hospital’s largest expansion ever. “Through this project a new [Vanderbilt University Hospital] inpatient tower will be built atop an existing parking structure located between 21st Avenue South and Medical Center Drive. Access to the new tower’s entrance will be through Vivien Thomas Way,” according to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The project will begin right away, and is expected to take nearly five years to complete. “When finished, the lobby entrance of the new 15-level, 470,000-square-foot tower will face 21st Avenue South while its west façade will be connected to VUH’s main structure, located across Medical Center Drive, by bridges spanning the street,” the university said. “The new VUH tower will provide additional adult inpatient beds, operating rooms, clinics and office space.” The university, which said that it expects to add 180 inpatient beds and 10 operating rooms, along with expanding other services like radiology and specialty clinics, says its expansion will help to meet the demand of Middle Tennessee’s ever-growing population. There will also be 600 additional parking spaces available once...
    A six-month-old baby in Tennessee with a heart defect has finally been added to the waiting list for a transplant, after his deeply religious evangelical parents were left distraught by a doctor's order that the baby must be vaccinated first. August Stoll was born in December, and his heart defect was diagnosed when he was 13 days old. He has spent much of his young life in Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, and in June had heart surgery. But the results were not as expected, his mother, Hannah, said, and doctors said he needed a transplant. 'Very long story short, the transplant team (specifically Dr. David Bearl) gave us an ultimatum that if we did not give August a series of vaccines, he would keep him off the transplant list,' wrote Hannah Stoll on June 24, on the website Tennessee Stands, a libertarian and religious organization.  Six-month-old August Stoll is pictured in a photo the family shared on Instagram. The baby is now awaiting a lifesaving heart transplant. It is unclear if he has now been vaccinated: his mother Hannah...

    Vanderbilt University is concerned after four of its medical school students have committed suicide in less than two years. “Vanderbilt University is committed to a culture of caring in which the well-being of all community members — our extraordinary students, the faculty who teach them, and the staff who play an immeasurable role in the success of this remarkable university — is enhanced and supported,” Vanderbilt said in a statement. “We strive to foster a culture of openness through brave dialogue, honest self-reflection, and willingness to invest in this incredible university by investing first in the mental health and wholeness of every member of the Vanderbilt family.” Specifically, four doctoral students in biomedical sciences have died by suicide. According to one report, mental health resources are stretched thin due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has taken its toll on the mental health of all Americans, and particularly college students. That report said that wait times for appointments at Vanderbilt University’s Counseling Center could be months long, and that the school has assigned a mental health counselor to specifically help the...
                 Vanderbilt Health announced Thursday that Rutherford county officials have approved plans for new hospital. The medical center will hold 42 beds, and be located at the intersection of Veterans Parkway and state route 840 in Murfreesboro. “We are pleased with the outcome and want to thank members of the Health Services and Development Agency for the approval to build this new hospital. Our goal continues to be to serve the needs of the many citizens of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County who choose Vanderbilt for their care, and we can now do that with Vanderbilt Rutherford Hospital,” C. Wright Pinson, MBA, MD, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Health System Officer for Vanderbilt University Medical Center said in a statement. According to a news release from Vanderbilt Health in September, the new facility will cost $144,276,600. The statement also said that the hospital would “be a full-service community hospital providing emergency room services, obstetrics, surgical capabilities, and cardiac catheterization services, and it will bring additional ICU capacity to the community.” According to Vanderbilt, within the last year, they have served...
                        A professor at Vanderbilt’s School of Medicine’s Division of Infectious Diseases reportedly said this week that new government guidelines saying that even vaccinated people should wear masks in some areas is an idea with which he agrees. William Schaffner, who serves as a professor of medicine, reportedly told The Epoch Times that he believes the new guidance makes sense. “The vaccines are excellent at keeping us out of the hospital. They’re not quite as good as preventing infection, and if you’re going to get infection even though you’re vaccinated you could also transmit it to others,” Schaffner reportedly said. “You’re less likely to do that, but nonetheless you could do it. And so I think this new guidance helps protect the people who are vaccinated and also contributes to a reduction in transmission to others.” The Tennessee Star’s attempts to contact the Vanderbilt School of Medicine and, by extension, Schaffner, were unsuccessful Wednesday. Schaffner, according to his biography on Vanderbilt’s website, is the current medical director and past president of...
