There is a controversial video of a mother providing her young son with estrogen patches in his quest to transition from boy to girl.
We normal folk view such an act is akin to “child abuse”, well so does a large tract of the legitimate medical professionals.
The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) is a national organization of pediatricians and other healthcare professionals dedicated to the health and well-being of children. Formed in 2002, the College is committed to fulfilling its mission by producing sound policy, based upon the best available research, to assist parents and to influence society in the endeavor of childrearing.
Dr. Michelle Cretella, President of the College states, “We live at a time in which social agendas often bias the results of research and lead to the development of false medical standards. Those who honorably speak out against this are chastised. Young children are being permanently sterilized and surgically maimed under the guise of treating a condition that would otherwise resolve in over 80% of them. This is criminal.“
To qualify for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, one must fit a specific list of criteria and be evaluated by a psychiatrist before beginning the process of sex reassignment.
While true, psychiatric evaluations are inherently flawed, and despite being given the go-ahead, children can too often come to question their decision.
“Popularity is not indicative of correctness”, and I’m inclined to concur; social engineering efforts to manufacture a ‘popularity’ of sex reassignment does not indicate it to be the correct course of action.
Consider this letter, authored by the president, vice president, and psychiatric consultant to the American College of Pediatricians (ACP), in response to an article published in Pediatrics aiming to normalize gender dysphoria:
“We vigorously object to the normalization of childhood gender identity disorder (GID) promoted by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) […] The recommendations of the authors to reinforce the delusions of gender identity–confused children, and to prescribe puberty-blocking hormones as though puberty were a disorder, are outrageous. This approach violates the oath physicians take to ‘do no harm’“.
Mandates by public institutions to force the acceptance of GD as a normal variant of child development and require social accommodation, toxic hormone therapy and surgical removal of healthy body parts, are misguided and dangerous. The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, the Christian Medical Association, and the Catholic Medical Association share the College’s concern over this approach. Together our groups represent over 20,000 physicians and health professionals.
Opposition also exists among liberal-leaning healthcare professionals who have created an online community known as Youth Trans Critical Professionals. However, those who dare to speak out in support of “First do no harm” often encounter significant public and private harassment, and many have lost or will lose their jobs.
American Academy of Pediatrics ?
Yes those same butchers who after a comprehensive review of the scientific evidence, the American Academy of Pediatrics found the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks, but the benefits are not great enough to recommend universal newborn circumcision. [link here]
The academy was founded in 1930 by 35 pediatricians to address pediatric healthcare standards.
American Academy of Pediatrics are long time gun grab advocates.
The AAP believes pediatricians should discuss guns and gun safety with parents before babies are born and at children’s annual exams.
AAP Board of Directors President (((Fernando Stein))) is leading the charge of fear mongering against President Trump’s plan to repeal and replace Obama Care.
The American College of Pediatricians urges health professionals, educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex as normal and healthful.
3. When GD occurs in the pre-pubertal child, it resolves in 80-95 percent of patients by late adolescence after they naturally pass through puberty. This is consistent with studies of identical twins that prove no one is born hard-wired to develop GD.
It’s well known throughout the medical community that children’s brains do not reach peak maturity until they reach their early 20’s, while their bodies don’t typically reach full maturity until their late teens. To provide young children who cannot make proper adult decisions, then, with adult doses of opposite-sex hormones, thereby setting them up for a lifetime of medical supervision and painful procedures, contributes to the mental health issues and suicide rates of post-operative patients:
“A recent 30-year study in transgendered adults in Sweden, unquestionably a transgenderaffirming culture, should give the AAP and American Psychiatric Association (APA) pause: it showed that individuals who underwent sex reassignment surgery suffered significantly greater morbidity and mortality when compared with matched controls. Shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable nontransgender population. The authors concluded, ‘Our findings suggest that sex reassignment, although alleviating gender dysphoria, may not suffice as treatment for transsexualism’“.
