Many painful stories from the transgender movement have recently come to light.
Ex-transgender individuals have admitted they regret pursuing a sex change and are cautioning other patients against taking hormonal drugs.
Now even doctors have started to confess the dangers of transgender drug treatments.
It’s becoming obvious that sex changing drugs are dangerous on multiple fronts. Ex-transgender individuals have publicly stated the ill effects of these drugs, but doctors have been reluctant to admit the truth.
That is until now.
Experimental hormonal drugs are untested, but doctors recklessly prescribe them for many children and young adults who want to identify as transgender. Recent studies show, however, that these drugs are actually causing a dangerous disease.
This disease, called hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, is a result of so-called “puberty blockers.”
These drugs block signals from the brain to the gonads, preventing the natural process of hormonal development in a young person’s body.
“I call it a development blocker,” said Dr. Michael Laidlaw, an independent physician who has been studying the effects of transgender drug treatments.
“We’re talking about what in nature is a rare condition,” he continued grimly. “It’s an area that needs to be explored further. In this case, it’s being induced by the medication.”
Dr. Laidlaw’s findings are horrifying. Those who contract hypogonadotropic hypogonadism from hormonal treatments face “increased risk for cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular death, deep vein thrombosis,” and more.
“They’re going to end up with lower bone density, perhaps stunted brain development,” Dr Laidlaw said, reflecting on the drugs’ impact on especially young patients. “A lot of the brain impact is unknown. There seems to be some brain development that is sex hormone-dependent.”
Some patients may even become infertile, unable to reverse the process and bear children – even if they begin to regret their transgender lifestyle.
The younger the patient, the more detrimental the effects of the drugs.
But transgender activists and progressive doctors continue to push these hormonal drug treatments on children as young as eight years old.
What’s more, activists and doctors aren’t fully sharing the risks and potential harms of these drugs with their young patients.
In Dr. Laidlaw’s opinion—which is simply common sense—this is child abuse.
“When a person cannot consent to being harmed in a medical study or a medical setting—when they cannot be aware of the harms—it is an ethical problem,” said Dr. Laidlaw.
“If you have children, they can’t consent because they may not have the intellectual capacity or emotional maturity to understand the consequences of what’s going to happen to them,” he continued.
He argued that doctors abuse their power over young patients who can’t fully understand the hormonal treatment process and its effects. The use of these drugs creates an ethical dilemma for everyone involved.
“Puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones—they’re going to be infertile. What 11-year-old is ready to have a kid? How would they know what that means? If you want to fully inform a child, you really cannot. Even if you tell the parents, how can the parent decide it? You can’t really do it.”
“There’s no real way for a kid to consent to this and the harms are very great,” said the doctor.
“These are really radical experiments on human bodies such as never has done before in the history of humankind, being perpetrated on children and justified by our medical societies because these political groups have brought their ideology into medicine.”
“But there’s no science behind it,” he argued. “You just can’t justify it.”
It’s completely unscientific—and unethical—to use these dangerous drugs to treat a condition (the desire to change genders) that is only conceived and felt by patients and can’t be proven physically.
“When someone has a confusion about their gender compared to their sex as the body,” said Dr. Laidlaw, “we have to look for underlying medical problems like anxiety, depression, [and] schizophrenia.”
But instead, transgender activism groups such as the World Professional Association for Transgender Health advocate for the exclusive use of sex-change drugs in situations of gender confusion.
This activism, which has caused lifelong pain and suffering for confused children, is underhanded and unethical to the extreme.
Dr. Laidlaw intends to publish a paper detailing his findings in order to expose the horrific increase in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.
Please pray for his work, and pray for the many people affected by this disease and by the pain of the transgender lifestyle.
May God have mercy and protect vulnerable individuals from the abuse of sex change drugs!
