Dr Jillian Spencer, a respected child and adolescent psychiatrist based in Queensland, is feeling the pressure that comes from acting in line with her own convictions as she challenges the requirement of her employer to conform to gender ideology in her workplace. 

Dr Spencer is expert in her field, with over 20 years of experience as a medical practitioner and 10 as a specialist psychiatrist. She has been open about preferring a cautious and holistic approach to the treatment of gender dysphoria cases, rather than an automatic ‘affirmation’ only approach.

By forcing doctors to facilitate medical affirmation and constraining their ability to provide safe and ethical medical care for their patients in line with the best available scientific evidence, policies such as those of the Queensland Children’s Hospital infringe the human rights of doctors to act in conformity with their conscience. They also infringe the rights of patients to receive proper treatment and informed consent, which includes information about different treatment options and the pros and cons of each.

In this video, Dr Spencer movingly apologises for her industry grossly failing its duty of care for some of those most vulnerable among us.

This event, presented by the Australian Christian Lobby, offers a chance to hear firsthand how this ideology affects young people and their families. Listen to various speakers and a panel from this event in other episodes.
