I’ve written multiple times on my blog about the dangers of puberty blockers and other hormone therapies or surgical “solutions” for those who believe they are transgender. Refusing to embrace God’s design of male or female (Genesis 1:27) has consequences, including horrible physical consequences for those who begin hormonal and surgical alterations to their bodies. And does The New York Times sort of agree with me, though just a little?
In a very long article published recently, the column begins by telling the stories of three children (two 11-year-olds and a 13-year-old) who were prescribed puberty blockers. The article then shares that “there is emerging evidence of potential harm from using blockers, according to reviews of scientific papers and interviews with more than 50 doctors and academic experts around the world.” This “emerging evidence” is causing some doctors (especially in Europe) to halt the practice of prescribing these blockers.
