Synthetic Hormone Injections For Transgender Children Worry Some Doctors

By

Pediatric endocrinologists are warning that despite a lack of medical tests to determine its safety, U.S. doctors are increasingly injecting children who have gender dysphoria with a powerful hormonal suppressant normally used to treat prostate cancer.

“[Parents] need to continue to love their children. They need to continue to affirm their human dignity. Yet they shouldn’t have to jettison biological reality to be able to put what they’re being told into practice, in terms of disrupting normally timed puberty,” Dr. Paul Hruz, an associate professor of pediatrics and endocrinology at Washington University in St. Louis, told The Christian Post.

Leuprorelin, sold under the brand name Lupron, has never been green-lighted by the Food and Drug Administration to treat gender dysphoria, nor have there been any peer-reviewed studies done on the drug’s long-term physical and psychological side effects on children, The Christian Post reports.

The Christian Post interviewed several doctors in a recent report who said synthetic hormones could put children on a pathway to permanent sterilization, and many other long-term repercussions which may not be felt for years.

Hormone blockers, like leuprorelin, are approved for use in children to treat precocious puberty— when a child experiences puberty at an abnormally early age— and pediatricians may administer them to children to help them handle hormone drives and avoid peer pressure related to their sexual maturity.

Doctors may diagnose children with central precocious puberty when signs of sexual maturity begin to develop in girls under the age of 8 or boys under the age of 9, according to the drug’s website.

Whenused normally, the drug suppresses hormonal signals from the pituitary gland which regulate testosterone or estrogen levels. This can aid in the treatment of prostate cancer for men and endometriosis in women.

When used to suppress normally-timed puberty, however, the drug can affect bone density, which increases during a child’s normal pubertal development, Hruz told The Christian Post.

“The reality is that there is no long-term data about treating children, and the only data that we have in adults indicates that medical interventions to align the appearance of the body to a transgendered identity does not fix the problem,” he said, adding that overwhelming evidence exists that most children will realign their gender identity with their biological sex if left alone.

Dr. Michael Laidlaw, a Rocklin, California-based board certified physician, told The Christian Post that a group called the World Professional Association for Transgender Health overhauled and “co-opted” the guidelines regarding gender transition therapy of the Endocrine Society, the largest global professional organization representing the field of endocrinology, to be overwhelmingly pro-transition.

Ladilaw also claimed that parents who change their minds about helping their children transition are often “strong-armed” or “bullied” into continuing the treatment by doctors, who warn that the child may commit suicide without the treatment.

“Gender dysphoria is not an endocrine condition, but is a psychological one, and should, therefore, be treated with proper psychological care,” Laidlaw told the The Christian Post.

“But it becomes an endocrine condition once you start using puberty blockers and giving cross-sex hormones to kids.”

Ladilaw also mentioned that he knows of no psychological condition that is treated by misaligning a patient’s hormones from their normal levels. He said he predicts that a few years down the road, when patients begin to realize the side effects of the treatment, there will likely be medical malpractice lawsuits filed against those who encouraged their transition.

Dr. Quentin Van Meter, a pediatric endocrinologist in private practice in Atlanta, said that doctors who oppose gender transition therapy today face barriers to getting published and are routinely dismissed by the scientific community at large.

“There is a core of very diabolical people who are filtering large sums of money into this and using mass social pressure,” Van Meter asserted.

California passed a law in September 2018 to provide resources for “gender-affirmative” treatment for foster children, despite strong opposition from doctors; a group of endocrinologists have co-authored a letter of protest to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism regarding the guidelines. Between 2009 and the present, the number of transgender medical clinics in the U.S. has ballooned to 55.

The doctors cited by The Christian Post all recommended appropriate counseling to uncover the root cause of the child’s distress, rather than seeking a gender change.

Humanity is under attack, from every angle you can think of, these evil cabal who actually run the globe, want humanity wiped out to a small level they can control, 1 billion and not 7-8 billion...  

They have been poisoning us on many levels for a long time, pesticides,herbicides, Vaccines, toxic food, medicine, drugs, Toxic dental fillings, spraying us every day from the chemtrails, making addictive drugs very available on the streets and cheap to buy, all this plus the G5 and other radiation all around us from cell phones and Towers,  and we know they have been sending "specialists into the poor countries to vaccinate them, when in fact they were sterilizing them...Its been going on decades and they have got away with it.

Now they want to concentrate on the young children, sterilize them whist they are still young, that is there agenda.

I am sure humanity will go along with it, they have up till now....

I am struggling to get past the title of the article. 

It kind of reads like

Synthetic Lethal Injections For Death-Row Inmates Worry Some Doctors

to me. 

Aint that the sordid truth?!To me that's the result of this politically correct insanity that is ruling discourse in our Western dystopia.If you disagree or challenge this madness you're a "hater".Guess that's right,because I do hate it.

Impending transhumanism.

Its disgusting..and immoral. Not that morality means much to anyone these days, the powers that wanna have been messing with peoples moral compass for a very good reason. Now we see the results.

Thought Id add to this, because (as many of you know here) I have a fairly liberal attitude to the gay community on account of knowing many over the years and more than a few in the truth community or awakening community or whatever we call this.

But gender dysmorphia is a whole other ball game, its really similar to body dysmorphia which is a hallmark of eating disorders. Ive suffered from both of these issues and it took until my 30s to finally get a handle it all after finally finding a decent counsellor and psychiatrist who helped me work through stuff (which was no easy feat as so many of them are really crap at their jobs).

It sickens me that adults are pushing this onto children who aren't old enough to have had a chance to sort this out for themselves. As for the transhuman slant, people are so deceived about the true agenda behind this that sometimes I find it hard to know where to start.

Thankfully my browser default did not display any pictures.  The by-line is more than enough. 

Somebody ought to give these kids a clue:  If you make a pass at the wrong person, you might get a knuckle-sandwich that destroys your pretty little face.

Katie Hopkins on Twitter "At some point this madness has to end. Boys don't have periods. Girls do. Get a bloody grip".

I don't always like or agree with Hopkins but you gotta love the ole battleaxe for having proper British spirit. Tackles things head on, Muslim rape gangs included.

LOL.Yes she does
