The first and oldest Catholic medical school in the country is once again flouting Church teaching in the classroom.
Church Militant's Nadia Bullock dives into the newly uncovered concern.
The Spectator uncovered, last week, a 2021 freshman course on human sexuality at Georgetown University's school of medicine.
In it, a guest lecture on "Transgender Health Care" by Dr. David Reitman taught students the "only way to help" trans individuals is to "fix their bodies" with medical intervention.
Reitman's slides parrot many woke falsehoods, like the idea that children who suffer from gender dysphoria will supposedly attempt suicide if they are not given trans hormones or surgeries. He also claims puberty blockers are "completely reversible."
Seniors at Georgetown may take a course on "Sexual and Gender Minority Health" that gives them hands-on experience actually administrating hormone therapy in clinical practice.
Both teaching and administering queer treatment is immoral. The U.S. bishops' conference lays this out in the "Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services": "Catholic health care does not offend the rights of individual conscience by refusing to provide or permit medical procedures that are judged morally wrong by the teaching authority of the Church."
A spokesperson at the National Catholic Bioethics Center said, "To teach future doctors how to help people engage in gender transitioning, I would say, is not ethical and not something that a Catholic medical school should be doing."
Kyle Gress: "Georgetown does very, very well; is being inclusive of all faiths."
Institutions that don't adhere to Church teaching, no longer deserve the credibility they were once given, and should be stripped of their Catholic name.
Related to this issue, Bp. Michael Burbidge of the diocese of Arlington has stated "to affirm someone in an identity at odds with biological sex or to affirm a person's desired 'transition' is to mislead that person."
