The Biden administration has unsealed the indictments against surgeon Eithan Haim, who exposed the continuation of chemical castration procedures on minors after the hospital publicly stated that it had stopped performing such procedures. 

The Texas Children’s Hospital doctor faces a four-count indictment alleging that he obtained personal information of patient names, treatment codes, and the attending physician using the institution’s electronic system without authorization. 

“He allegedly obtained this information under false pretenses and with intent to cause malicious harm to TCH,” according to a press release from the Southern District of Texas U.S. Attorney’s Office. “According to the indictment, Haim was a resident at Baylor College of Medicine and had previous rotations at TCH as part of his residency.”  

Haim had allegedly requested to reactivate his hospital login credentials to view patients’ medical information even though they were not under his care. The press release explains Haim is accused of accessing client information under false pretenses and then leaking it to media contacts. 

State Rep. Brian Harrison (R-Midlothian) took to social media to express his dismay with the indictment. “Outrageous!” he posted on X. “The procedures @EithanHaim exposed are ILLEGAL in Texas.”

“Even prior to prohibition, [the Texas Attorney General] had determined they were CHILD ABUSE,” Harrison continued. “We need immediate #Txlege hearings and investigations into the federal officials involved. Is Biden’s DOJ protecting child abusers?”

This follows Haim’s initial uncovering of continued sterilization procedures at TCH and his subsequent prosecution. 

Several years ago, the institution proudly proclaimed its support for chemical castration procedures on minors as medical professionals administered cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers to gender-confused kids. 

Due to immense pressure from the public, the hospital claimed to have stopped the procedures and CEO Mark Wallace announced that the program would be shut down. However, as Haim revealed, the program had continued the procedures. 

He now faces up to ten years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000 if convicted.
