State lawmakers are pledging to ban transgender surgeries on children, and Gov. Bill Lee is calling for an investigation of Vanderbilt’s Pediatric Transgender Clinic after conservative podcaster Matt Walsh posted a thread on social media questioning the morality of the clinic’s work.

Walsh, whose show is part of the Nashville-based Daily Wire, claimed Tuesday based on a two-minute video that the clinic at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt “got into the gender transition game” because surgeries are a “big moneymaker.”
