In September 2023, the Health and Human Services (HHS) department of the Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration allocated a substantial amount of $700,000 in taxpayer money. This funding was designated to support the establishment of a nationwide program aimed at preventing pregnancy among transgender boys. The disclosure of this tax dollar allocation was made through federal grant records.
The recipient of these funds was the Center for Innovative Public Health Research (IPHR), a nonprofit organization specializing in the development of health technologies, as stated on their website.
The program plans to make use of a text-messaging program designed for “cisgender sexual minority girls” between the ages of 14-18.
The term “Cisgender” was coined by individuals with left-leaning ideologies to refer to someone who identifies with the gender they were assigned at birth and is not transgender. Unfortunately, it is often used as a derogatory term by advocates of transgender rights.
The grant’s description states that the program aims to address the social and structural factors that influence sexual behavior in transgender boys. According to the grant, females who identify as transgender boys may be less likely to use condoms during sexual encounters with individuals who have male genitalia. Additionally, they are just as likely as cisgender girls to experience pregnancy.
The program plans to conduct focus groups in order to understand and highlight the various factors that impact the sexual decision-making of transgender boys. To ensure that the program’s content resonates with these individuals, content advisory teams will be involved in the development process.
Finally, the grant mentions that the final version of the program will be tested with 700 transgender boys across the country.
The effectiveness of the initiative will be evaluated based on the utilization of birth control methods and the practice of safe sex through condom use among transgender boys aged 14 to 18.
In addition, the Biden administration has allocated significant funding towards various transgender programs and research endeavors. For instance, in June, the National Institute of Health (NIH) granted over $200,000 to develop an online program aimed at connecting LGBTQ youth with LGBTQ adult mentors. This initiative, spearheaded by Professor Katie Edwards from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), aims to enhance the social and emotional skills of LGBTQ youth.
Furthermore, in August 2022, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) provided over $1 million in funding to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. This financial support was allocated for a study focusing on the risk of thrombosis, which refers to the formation of blood clots in blood vessels, among transgender adolescents undergoing hormonal therapies as part of their gender transition. These details are evident in federal grant records.
