But in reality, the data tell a totally different story, and parents are often kept in the dark. On this episode, we talk with Jay Greene about his new report that shows "gender-affirming care" is not only dangerous for kids, but also why parents (not government) must be empowered to make decisions for their kids.Show Notes:Puberty Blockers, Cross-Sex Hormones, and Youth Suicide Does “Gender-Affirming Care” For Trans Kids Actually Prevent Suicide?

Cully Stimson, a widely recognized policy expert in crime control, and deputy director of Heritage’s Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, and an author of this report joins us to explain more.
