Medical scandal: Doctors are giving trans children a disease

Children as young as 8 years old are being given untested experimental drugs to verify their gender identity. Activists argue that these drugs are essential for the health of kids who identify as transgender, and many in the medical establishment increasingly agree. Nevertheless, a dissenting endocrinologist explained to PJ Media that these drugs actually give children a disease that could cause heart and bone problems and stunt brain growth, and condemned the transgender “treatments” often carried out on children as “child abuse.”

If a girl child identifies as a boy, she may be given so-called “puberty-blockers” to prevent her from going through the natural human process of development. In some cases, she would then be given testosterone in an attempt to make her become a man. The effects of these hormones are not fully known, but some negative side effects have been widely reported.

“I call it a development blocker — it’s actually causing a disease,Dr. Michael Laidlaw, an endocrinologist associated with Sutter Roseville Medical Center in Rocklin, Calif., told PJ Media. The disease in question is hypogonadotropic hypogonadism

Even though the risks are not fully known, activists and medical professionals have pushed drugs on younger and younger children. “Under the Dutch protocol, as of Dutch law, these kids couldn’t take cross-sex hormones until they were 16. In the U.S., the age was lowered to 12. I filed a Freedom of Information Act request and found that in this NIH study they actually recommended kids as young as 8 years old getting on to these opposite sex hormones.”…

Indeed, Laidlaw compared these transgender “treatments” to the horrific experiments performed by Nazi scientists under Adolf Hitler. “They were doing experiments on people who could not consent.”
