PA Governor-Elect Wolf Names Sexually Confused Man to be His Physician General
(Harrisburg) — On Saturday Governor-elect Tom Wolf began paying back the homosexual, bisexual and transgender Pennsylvanians who voted for him. He named transgender Rachel Levine to be his physician general. Dr. Levine is a professor at Penn State College of Medicine and currently sits on the board of Equality PA, which worked extensively for Wolf’s election. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide group promoting the natural family, is astounded that Governor-elect Wolf would name a sexually-confused individual to this position to “advise the governor and secretary of the Department of Health on medical and public health-related issues” and is asking the State Senate not to confirm Dr. Levine.
“Tom Wolf is following the lead of another liberal governor — Terry McAuliffe of Virginia who just one year ago named Dr. Marissa Levine, another transgender, to be his Commissioner of Health. Wolf’s transgender nominee Rachel Levine was a man up until about five years ago– obviously a very confused man. In 1996, about the time the physician general position was created under Governor Tom Ridge, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center hired an individual who, fifteen years or so later, would decide he is not a man, but a woman. He has been an activist for the sexually confused for ten years and will continue that activism. Levine hopes to use the position of physician general to normalize transgenderism to “serve as a mentor and role model” for others who are sexually confused. This is a mistake,” Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA commented.
Levine not only serves on the board of Equality PA, but is also the liaison for LGBT Affairs for the Penn State Hershey Office of Diversity. Tom Wolf has nominated a homosexual/transgender activist to a position overseeing health issues in PA. Wolf said in Saturday’s news release announcing Levine’s nomination, ” It is important to me that we place equal emphasis on behavioral and physical health issues.” Obviously Tom Wolf has shown his confusion on these issues by nominating Levine.
Dr. Joseph Berger, a Toronto consulting psychiatrist and an expert in the field of mental illness, says that from a medical and scientific perspective there is no such thing as a “transgendered” person. He explained that cosmetic surgery will not change the chromosomes of a human being in that it will not make a man become a woman, capable of menstruating, ovulating, and having children, nor will it make a woman into a man, capable of generating sperm that can unite with an egg or ovum from a woman and fertilize that egg to produce a human child.
Dr. Paul McHugh, former Johns Hopkins chief of psychiatry and the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, notes “the transgendered person’s disorder is in the person’s “assumption” that they are different than the physical reality of their body, their maleness or femaleness, as assigned by nature. It is a disorder similar to a “dangerously thin” person suffering anorexia who looks in the mirror and thinks they are “overweight.”
“In an effort to move beyond the homosexual issue, Tom Wolf is now pushing for the normalization of another perversion — transgenderism. The nomination of Dr. Rachel Levine is not in the best interest of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” Gramley concluded.
