Doctor Says Revealing Baby’s Sex Might Be Traumatizing

Dr. Leena Nahata, a pediatric endocrinologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, has sounded the alarm. She said that parents who announce the sex of their baby in a celebratory way might harm their child, who, as an adult, is confused about their sex. Dr. Nahata’s unconventional take on baby biology has been published in the November 2017 issue of Pediatrics.

Concerning Dr. Nahata’s non-scientifically based, skewed viewpoint, The Federalist’s Mary Hasson writes, “It’s really a rather remarkable thought process for a doctor . . . healthy parents who experience natural joy at realizing a profound truth about their child’s human identity (the child’s creation as male or female) need to tamp it down and get some re-education.”

As columnist Michael Brown explains, science reveals that biological sex is a reality; all you have to do is consider a new study that shows 6,500 genes out of 20,000 are biased toward one sex or another. So, parents should not worry about expressing the joy that their new son or daughter has brought to them.
