A billboard drawing attention to the harms of transgender medical practices in Los Angeles near a Kaiser hospital has been taken down after being up for a day and a half. Concerned parents who paid to erect the billboard say it bodes ill for free speech amid a medical scandal about which much of the general public knows little.

The billboard is the second sign to go up in Los Angeles and was intentionally positioned about one block away from Kaiser West-LA, where transgender surgeries occur regularly. It was scheduled to stay up for a month.

Before it was taken down, the sign read: “Why do so many of our youth think they are transgender? Know the facts before making a life-changing choice. Read this book.”

The text was positioned next to a picture of the cover of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters by journalist Abigail Shrier. The first billboard, which was put up in nearby West Hollywood in October and was sponsored by the same group of concerned parents, also promoted Shrier’s book next to text explaining that “puberty is not a medical condition” and noting how children are being taught about gender identity at school. The first board remained up for a month.

The dad of a trans-identifying teenaged daughter who is behind both billboards spoke with The Christian Post on Tuesday, again on condition of anonymity, explaining that the official word from the billboard company was that it was being taken down because of “complaints by the community.” The father’s money to book the billboard was refunded.

But the area is not very residential and the father speculates that the surgeons and medical staff and those that are financially benefiting from the surgeries are the ones who complained. They were told the billboard went up Sunday morning. By Tuesday, it had already been taken down completely.

“It may sound surreal to some people but it’s clearly in jeopardy,” he told CP, when asked about the state of free speech in the United States in light of the billboard company’s move.

He believes the public does not know how much money the gender identity medical industry has at its disposal, likening it to a cult-like organization.

“It trickles down to Big Pharma, the activists that are embedded with this are everywhere. If you look at the head of this snake, you have Martine Rothblatt who created SiriusXM satellite radio, you have Jennifer Pritzker. These are billionaires. And it trickles down from there.”

“They want to silence the truth and if the truth is ever allowed to be spoken, it prevails,” he added.
