Dr. Eithan Haim was completing his surgical training at Texas Children’s Hospital in the spring of 2023. On a Friday morning in June, just before graduation, a knock came on Haim’s door.

“I open it, [and] standing outside there are two federal agents with [the Department of] Health and Human Services,” Haim recalls.


The surgeon says he was told he was under investigation in a case involving medical records. Just one month earlier, Haim had worked with journalist Christopher Rufo to blow the whistle on Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston and its gender treatments for minors.


In 2022, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, took steps to ensure that hospitals in Texas weren’t performing such procedures. As a result, the Texas Children’s Hospital announced that it had stopped doing the gender procedures on kids; inside the hospital, Haim says, he was seeing a different story.


The hospital “took away all the public-facing indications that the program was still active,” Haim says, adding that “the hospital is telling the public this program no longer exists, but within the hospital, they’re prioritizing it to the highest level.”


“So the directors of the program that supposedly did not exist were speaking at the hospital’s most prestigious lecture series seven months after that statement [in which] they said they were shutting it down,” the surgeon says.


Haim joins this episode of “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain why he is so passionate about defending minors from these dangerous medical procedures and standing against what he sees as the federal government’s intimidation tactics.

    A great story of decency and courage pitted against the unscrupulous operatives of the Biden Administration.

    Follow the link from the doctor’s name to an article with more information, including the crowdfunding site to use for contributing to his legal defense fund.  

    With its infinitely deep pockets,  the Biden Justice Department can easily bankrupt him, even if it never charges him with anything.
