Dr. Richard Pan’s Claims in Support of California’s SB 107 Are False and Medically Irresponsible
Pan stressed the importance of ‘talking about facts’ and ‘not exaggerating.’ I suggest he take his own advice.
It was disappointing to hear Dr. Richard Pan, a pediatrician and California senate representative, give a fact-free endorsement of the state’s SB107. The law would effectively set up California as a sanctuary state for minors seeking “gender affirming care.” Its supporters argue that it is a necessary response to Republican states passing laws that ban or restrict the controversial protocol. Pan stressed the importance of “talking about facts” and “not exaggerating.” I suggest he start taking his own advice.
