DOJ indicts doctor who exposed secret trans treatments at Texas Children’s Hospital

The DOJ has indicted a Texas doctor after he exposed secret transgender treatments at Texas Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Eithan (Ee-tan) Haim is appearing in court today on charges related to alleged HIPAA violations. Dr. Haim became a whistleblower in 2022 after Texas Children’s publicly said it would shut down its transgender program, only to have it continue in secret.

Earlier that year, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said so-called “gender-affirming care” could be investigated as child abuse, prompting the hospital to take the program underground. Haim said he felt it was his “responsibility as a doctor” to come forward.

Haim denies any wrongdoing and says he is being targeted for political reasons
