Sounding the Alarm: Tennessee Governor and Southern Baptists Raise Concerns About Transgender Clinic

Published on 23 Sep 2022 / In News and Politics

The governor of Tennessee and top Southern Baptist leaders in Nashville are going after the Transgender Health Clinic at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) after videos posted by commentator Matt Walsh raised concerns about harm to children, religious liberty, and financial incentives.

In the wake of the postings, Gov. Bill Lee (R-TN) is calling for a state investigation, saying the pediatric transgender clinic raises "serious moral, ethical and legal concerns." A statement from his office added "we should not allow permanent, life-altering decisions that hurt children or policies that suppress religious liberties, all for the purpose financial gain."

I'm surprised, but glad to see Tennessee's governor taking action on this.
