I am a referral specialist at a primary care office, I help people work with their insurance to get specialty appointments and resources. I have an 11 year old who was referred to endocrinology for gender transition. I took RCIA two years ago, and have been Catholic since then, and my Deacon said that some sins are relative; his example was for abortion. The secretary who scheduled the abortion is in less sin than the surgeon who performed that particular procedure. He argued against NOT scheduling the procedure as the secretary may lose their job and engage in significant financial struggle, a large cost for a relatively lessor sin. I am having internal conflict by being a party to this young person’s transition when I strongly believe that it is not the correct thing to do. Am I right to feel this way? I have a family to support so quitting is not an option, though I am currently looking for another job.
Thank you for listening.
