A Texas surgeon, who is potentially facing 10 years in prison for having leaked information exposing Texas Children's Hospital for allegedly continuing to perform trans procedures on minors despite claiming otherwise, said his ordeal has convinced him of God's providence.

Dr. Eithan Haim, 34, told The Christian Post that he feels God is with him in his battle against the U.S. Department of Justice, which slapped him earlier this month with four felony counts after he "obtained personal information including patient names, treatment codes and the attending physician from Texas Children's Hospital's (TCH) electronic system without authorization," according to a DOJ press release.

Haim reportedly leaked such records to journalist Christopher Rufo last year because the hospital told the public it had paused such procedures after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott labeled them child abuse, though Haim uncovered documents that showed otherwise.

The six-page indictment released by U.S. Attorney Alamdar Hamdani alleges that Haim went to the press instead of the appropriate authorities within the hospital.

Haim went on a media blitz last week, giving interviews about his situation to prominent people such as Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Steve Bannon, Glenn Beck and Jordan B. Peterson.

Haim, who conceded he finds his potential prison sentence "terrifying," told CP that his obligation to the future generation has become more pressing now that his wife is six months pregnant with their first daughter.

"What kind of world will we live in if we don't stand up for these kids who are being harmed or against the government that's going after people who are telling the truth?" he asked. "And if we think things are bad now, how much worse is it going to be in 10 years?"

"And that's the world we would deliver our children into, and especially with my wife being 24 weeks pregnant now, that's not theoretical anymore, but that's real," he continued. "If we really love our children, we're willing to sacrifice for their future. So if that means I need to take on the most powerful federal Leviathan in human history, that's what it's going to take."

Haim believes the trans movement is driven primarily by ideology but that it is further enabled by people who reap the rewards of enabling it.

"These are the people who are the true believers, who have never grown up with any type of moral tradition," he said of those propelling the movement. "And because of that, there's no way for them to make sense of life's suffering. Because they have no way to make sense of it, they have to latch on to something that can provide them with some form of meaning. But when that happens, they can latch on to anything, and the transgender ideology is what they've chosen. So these are the most radical people who are driving it."

Haim believes every major institution in the U.S. has been "captured by this ideology" that endeavors to elevate narcissistic, selfish desires above objective reality and that anyone attempting to expose such things risks being attacked.

"So if someone within those institutions is willing to tell the truth, it shines a light on their own degradation, which is why they try so hard to destroy those people," he said. "Because if they can destroy the one person who's telling the truth, who's shining the light, then they can reestablish the balance where everyone's degraded. But once you have one person who's going to speak the truth, who's willing to stand up, it will inevitably inspire others to do the same thing, too. And the process becomes exponential."

Haim, whose legal defense fund has raised over $868,000 of its $1 million goal as of Thursday morning, told CP that he feels swept up in a spiritual war but feels God is protecting and providing for him. He said he has been inundated with support from Christians and Jews, which he described as "a miracle."

"After everything that's happened, there's no denying it: these things happen for a reason," he said. "I think more people are coming to realize that, too. When you live by these things that we preach on Saturday or Sunday, we learn that God protects His own."

"Never in a million years did I ever think so many people would join us in this way," he said, adding that he and his family had "sacrificed everything we've ever saved" to take a stand but that the donations flooding in have restored what they have lost.

"That was done with a faith that if we did that, maybe other people would put their faith in us, and that's come true," he said. "It's amazing."

Haim hopes his case can help set a precedent that will embolden other whistleblowing doctors who want to uphold their oath to "do no harm."

"You can't just stand by in silence and let these hospitals lie to the people they take care of and harm these children," he said. He hopes other potential whistleblowers will see his example and be encouraged not to be afraid.

"The thing they should be more afraid of is their own submission," he added. "Because they're going to lose their dignity, and they'll have to live with that for the rest of their lives."

On Tuesday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, sent a letter to Hamdani demanding answers regarding Haim's prosecution, which he maintained is politically motivated and par for the course under President Joe Biden's DOJ.

"I have had longstanding concerns with the impartiality of the Department of Justice under the leadership of Attorney General Merrick Garland," Cruz wrote. "As such, while the present prosecution of Dr. Haim is troubling, it is also not surprising. Political prosecution of whistleblowers not only undermines the integrity of the Department of Justice, but also sets a dangerous precedent for intimidating others from exposing wrongdoing."

"It has no place in our system of justice," Cruz added.
