AUDIO: How the American Academy of Pediatrics Abandoned Kids for Politics

His final tour of duty was back at the Naval Hospital in Oakland where he was Pediatric Department Chairman and director of the Pediatric residency program. After the Navy, he moved to the Atlanta area to join a multi-specialty private practice, providing general pediatric and pediatric endocrine services, as he had in the Navy. He has maintained academic affiliations throughout his career, at LSU, UC San Diego, UC San Francisco, Emory, and Morehouse Schools of Medicine.

He has a long history of advocacy for children through the American Academy of Pediatrics where he served as Chairman of the Uniformed Services West Chapter. Once he moved to Georgia, he became active in that AAP Chapter as Legislative Chairman and Newsletter Editor. He is continually frustrated by the political bent of the National AAP and wants to continue his advocacy role with the College as an organization that actually works for children and their families by strengthening the role of the family without using a lens that focuses only on what is politically correct or expedient. He has maintained his Georgia Chapter membership, but no longer belongs to the national organization. Dr. Van Meter has spoken around the world on the subject of transgender children. His experience began at Johns Hopkins in the 1970’s with Dr. John Money, and he has seen the travesty of continued experimentation on children evolve since then.

While attending Holy Apostles Seminary, Father helped start a crisis pregnancy center across the street from an abortion business. He explains, “…being across from the abortion mill showed me how important it is to have ministries of life directly across from the gates of death.”

Ordained in May of 2005 for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, Father Stephen learned of a small adoration chapel located directly across from a Planned Parenthood facility in Albuquerque. Using the chapel as a focal point and prompted by the Holy Spirit to rejuvenate Project Life–which was dedicated to prayer vigils and sidewalk counseling in front of Planned Parenthood–Father Stephen gathered a group of laypeople, forming the Project Defending Life.

Science, Schools, and Government Support Unhealthy Transgenderism

Jane Robbins is an attorney and retired senior fellow with the American Principles Project in Washington D.C. At APP she worked on issues related to education, parental rights, and religious freedom; she testified about these issues before Congress and the legislatures of 12 states. Since retiring from APP she has focused on issues related to the sexualization of children in schools, healthcare, and the culture at large. Her articles on these topics have been published in numerous national media outlets. She also serves on the board of a new organization called American Achievement Testing, which is developing a traditional U.S. history curriculum to be offered to high schools as an alternative to current Leftist models. She is a graduate of Clemson University and the Harvard Law School.

"The administrative state book was written several years ago with two of my APP colleagues. It's an attempt to delve deeper into how the bureaucracy of the federal government really dictates so much state and local policy. It does have a couple of chapters about education -- how we got to the pathetic state we're in -- and the chapter about rigged federal research is especially applicable to the trans issue."
