This GOP Governor forced a respected radiologist to resign from the State Board of Medicine for one shocking reason

It turns out the woke radical left-wing agenda is just as active in deep red states.

Even some of the most Republican states in the nation are now suffering the effects of the leftist agenda.

And this GOP Governor forced a respected radiologist to resign from the State Board of Medicine for one shocking reason.

At the behest of Wyoming Republican Governor Mark Gordon, a world-renowned interventional radiologist in arguably the most conservative state in the nation has resigned from its Board of Medicine.

Opposing the mutilation of children not OK in the Cowboy State

Dr. Eric Cubin was forced out simply because he publicly opposed gender-related medical interventions being performed on minors.

Last year, Governor Gordon confirmed Dr. Cubin, a Casper radiologist, to serve on the State’s Board of Medicine, which mainly grants and renews the licenses of Wyoming physicians and physician assistants. 

Dr. Cubin was then reconfirmed to the post earlier this year for a term that was scheduled to end in 2028, Cowboy State Daily reported.

Then, earlier this year, Wyoming lawmakers were considering a bill to ban so-called gender affirming care for minors. 

Nicknamed “Chloe’s Law” after high-profile detransitioner Chloe Cole, “the Children Gender Change Prohibition bill bans any form of transgender-related medical intervention — including cross-sex hormones, puberty blockers, and, of course, surgical genital mutilation — on children,” wrote Blaze Media.

Dr. Cubin sent an email to all state representatives in February, encouraging them to support Chloe’s Law.

“The evidence and medical data on gender affirming care is all over the board,” Cubin wrote. 

“Unfortunately, much of the data on both sides is politically charged and it is difficult to decipher exactly what is true and what is not true.”

Both chambers of the Wyoming legislature agreed with Cubin. 

The bill sailed through both the state House and Senate, and Governor Gordon signed it into law in March.

The reluctant Republican

But according to Cowboy State Daily, the Governor did so very reluctantly.

“I signed [Chloe’s Law] because I support the protections this bill includes for children; however, it is my belief that the government is straying into the personal affairs of families,” he said at the time.

Governor Gordon also had a problem with Dr. Cubin’s email to the legislature about Chloe’s Law.

Gordon falsely claimed the email demonstrated an inappropriate bias for a member of the State Board of Medicine. 

“Medical professionals should be confident that their licensure, which is their livelihood, will be handled professionally and clinically examined on merits alone,” Gordon said. “Even the appearance of bias can be disquieting as well as erode confidence in the board’s presumed impartiality.”

Gordon also laughably claimed that since Dr. Cubin is a member of the Wyoming Medical Society, his email could have been perceived as representing the views of WMS as a whole, even as WMS leaders ardently opposed Chloe’s Law. 

“We believe that decision [about transgender-related care for minors] should be between a patient and their medical provider,” said Kris Schamber, president of WMS.

So, it’s ok for other doctors to weigh in as long as they are on the “right” side of the issue according to Governor Gordon.

Cubin took WMS to task, claiming its board had been overtaken by “several very vocal, extremely liberal members” whose “woke” views ran counter to those of its general membership. 

“It seems that [WMS board members] have decided to prioritize politics over their stated mission of physician advocacy,” he said.

On April 22, Governor Gordon sent Dr. Cubin a letter, informing him that while he respected Cubin’s right to free speech, he intended to “remove” Cubin from the Board of Medicine because of his political advocacy. 

Rather than wait for his ouster, Cubin resigned, effective April 29.

“At the end of the day, I stood up for my principles, I stood up for what’s right, and I stood up for the children in the state of Wyoming,” he said.
