Three major medical groups called on the Justice Department to investigate "coordinated campaigns" of disinformation about transgender operations that lead to threats and intimidation.
The letter signed by the American Medical Association was sent Monday to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland at the Justice Department.
"The coordinated attacks threaten federally protected rights to health care for patients and their families. The attacks are rooted in an international campaign of disinformation, where a few high-profile users on social media share false and misleading information targeting individual physicians and hospitals, resulting in a rapid escalation of threats, harassment and disruption of care across multiple jurisdictions," read the letter.
The letter also called on media companies to stop the campaigns from spreading on their platforms.
"Our organizations have called on technology companies to do more to prevent this practice on digital platforms, and we now urge your office to take swift action to investigate and prosecute all organizations, individuals, and entities responsible," it added.
The letter was also signed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital Association.
The three groups were likely referring to outrage resulting from posts from the popular Libs of TikTok account that exposes what many would consider to be outrageous transgender operations.
In one instance, Libs of TikTok posted information from the webpage for the Boston Children's Hospital documenting transgender care it was providing to underage people. The hospital was hit with torrents of online criticism and some threats of violence as well.
In September, the Justice Department announced the arrest of a woman it alleges called in a hoax bomb threat into the hospital and disrupted operations. It also said it would prioritize threats to hospitals related to transgender operations and healthcare.
The Libs of TikTok account has already been targeted for censorship despite it only publishing information and media posted to the internet by liberals and hospitals.
The three groups represented more than 200 children's hospitals and over 270,000 physicians.
