Dr. Rachel Levine, a transgender woman, was confirmed as assistant health secretary by the Senate on Wednesday in a 52-48 vote.

Sens. Susan Collins from Maine and Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, both RINOs, have sided with the Democrats and backed Levine. Levine was previously the secretary of health for Pennsylvania, where she directed the state’s CCP Virus (COVID-19) response. However, according to the Gateway Pundit, her performance was less than stellar in Pennsylvania. 

It has been alleged that the controversial policies of the Democrats that force CCP-Virus-affected patients back into long-term care facilities have resulted in nursing homes across the United States having to cope with unprecedented problems stemming from the pandemic. However, Dr. Levine made certain that  her 95-year-old mother was rescued from the facility and safely deposited in a hotel.

Moreover, Levine had prepared  notes when a reporter questioned her on removing her mother from an elderly care facility while others had to be under different treatment. 

Levine argued “Well my mother is actually a resident of a personal care home—not a nursing home and that is regulated by the Department of Human Services, not the Department of Health,” while claiming that it was their family and her mother’s wishes to be moved when the CCP Virus burst forth on the scene. She also reminded that her mother was still well enough to make her own decisions despite her age of 95. 

Levine is also a strong supporter of administering puberty blockers on demand. But when being asked about hormone therapy for children under the age of 3 by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Dr. Levine declined to respond. 

During Dr. Levine’s confirmation hearing last month, Paul, himself a doctor, criticized that the idea of a puberty blocker has not earned enough in-depth scientific study to hastily pushed forward.
