To the Editor: Re “Breast Removal Surgery on Rise for Trans Teens” (front page, Sept. 26): As three out of five Americans say they don’t know a trans person, your reporting contributes much-needed understanding of trans youth and the barriers they face in receiving gender-affirming medical care.

The American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychological Association and the Endocrine Society all assert that health care for trans kids, done in the right way at the right time, is safe.

Readers should be aware that efforts by Republican elected officials to ban such health care are not random; they are methodical, intentional and the result of a well-oiled extremist effort to exploit trans lives in the creation of a potent political wedge.
