During a visit to the White House Thursday on International Transgender Day of Visibility, "Jeopardy!" star Amy Schneider, a biological man who identifies as a woman, claimed that bills around the U.S. will lead to child deaths.

"They're really scary. And, ah, some of them in particular that are denying, ah, medical services, ah, to trans youth ... those are lifesaving medical treatments," Schneider said, claiming that "these bills ... will cause the deaths of children."

Immediately after issuing that dire prognostication, Schneider was asked about the possibility of engaging in activism to push back.

"Not at the moment," Schneider replied. "I am trying to figure out where that sort of advocacy and activism fits in to my life," Schneider said. "I would like to do more of it," Schneider said, expressing uncertainty about the right way to do so.

Some states have approved or are considering measures to protect children against radical leftist gender ideology.

Schneider, who rose to prominence by attaining an impressive winning streak on the trivia gameshow, racked up 40 consecutive wins, an achievement eclipsed only by Ken Jennings, who holds the record with 74 consecutive game wins.

Last year, Larissa Kelly, the woman with the highest all-time Jeopardy earnings, congratulated Schneider for breaking the record.

"Well, it was fun to hold a Jeopardy record for a few years...but it's been even more fun to watch @Jeopardamy set new standards for excellence, on the show and off. Congratulations to Amy on becoming the woman with the highest overall earnings in the show's history!" Kelly tweeted.

"Thanks so much, I’m honored to be in your company, and I look forward to some day watching the woman who beats us both!" Schneider responded.
