Parents Suing Children's National Hospital for Transitioning and Trafficking Their Son Take Their Plight to Congress

As reported by the Department of Justice in 2015, Children’s Hospital Children’s National Medical Center Inc. agreed to pay $12.9 million to resolve allegations of submitting false cost reports to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Children's National sued for allegedly transitioning and trafficking an underage child, who allegedly now lives with the hospital's transgender Chaplin.

If the allegations are true, we will be looking into Children's National Hospital's federal NIH funding”
— Congressman Andrew Clyde, Member of the House Committee on Appropriations
WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, May 25, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Von Batten-Montague-York, a leading government affairs firm located in the heart of the nation's capital, is announcing its representation of two courageous whistleblowers in a case that strikes at the heart of parental rights and ethical medical practices.

The whistleblowers, African American veterans of the United States Air Force and devout Christians, are alleging severe misconduct by Children's National Hospital in Washington, D.C. regarding their child—claims outlined in their lawsuit and reported by the Epoch Times. The hospital, a recipient of significant federal research funding, is accused of denying the whistleblowers access to their autistic-presenting child, prescribing a gender transition without the consent of the parents, and suggesting a change in the family’s religious beliefs was necessary to regain custody of their child.

Since 2021, the family's plight has continued without resolution, and the child remains out of their custody. According to allegations, the child was even allowed to reside with the hospital's Chaplain, who identifies as transgender—introducing a troubling personal influence into a professional care setting.

This case raises deep concerns about the potential misuse of federal funds from agencies such as the National Institute of Health, which provides over 60% of the hospital’s research funding. Children's National Hospital's Gender Development Program is alleged to be pushing a specific gender ideology rather than offering a balanced and ethical healthcare perspective. This is not merely about medical care but about advocating for ideologies that may not align with scientifically balanced care and parental choice.

Von Batten-Montague-York leadership is meeting with relevant congressional committees, briefing them on the situation, and calling on Congress to immediately look into these allegations. We propose that Monica Bertagnolli, CEO of the National Institute of Health, and Michelle Riley-Brown, MHA, FACHE, CEO of Children’s National Hospital, be required to testify regarding the utilization of federal funds in relation to the hospital's treatment of gender and neurodiversity in patients.

Parental rights, children's welfare, and ethical medical practices are non-negotiable aspects of our society. If federal funding has been leveraged to support practices that undermine these principles, it is not merely a misuse of taxpayer dollars but potentially a criminal act. Our firm, renowned for championing just causes and scrutinizing government actions, is resolute in its commitment to ensuring transparency, accountability, and the protection of individual rights in this critical issue.

We will continue to support our clients in their pursuit of justice and truth.
