Pediatricians: Transgender Conditioning of Children is Child Abuse
As the “Trans agenda” continues to gain momentum with more parents subjecting their children to gender reassignment surgery, the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds,) a group of the country’s leading medical experts, has made a statement condemning these procedures at an early age.
“Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse,” according to the ACPeds.
This form of child abuse is psychological and has a devastating effect on these young people. Parents that desire to be part of this “trendy” social movement are putting their children in danger. Not only does gender reassignment surgery sterilize and destroy perfectly healthy reproductive organs, but 41% of those who go through this “transformation,” subsequently attempt suicide. Not to mention, a high percentage of transgenders regret occurs after the procedure.
The Guardian of the UK in 2004 reviewed 100 studies and reported that 20% of transgenders have regretted doing the sex change. These are the facts that are conveniently left out of the media supporting the transgender movement. That is why ACPeds released a report exposing the truth about transgenderism in children.
“The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.”
In the report, ACPeds offers an explanation for what is actually happening to the majority of these children. “When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such… These children suffer from gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria (GD), formerly listed as Gender Identity Disorder (GID), is a recognized mental disorder in the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-V). The psychodynamic and social learning theories of GD/GID have never been disproved.”
According to the DSM-V, 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls accept their biological sex after puberty. So, parents are doing an injustice to their offspring by assuming it is something more than a GID. Again, these individuals are most likely going to regret the surgery, but they are forever changed. Besides removing reproductive organs, the surgery comes with cross-sex hormones that have dangerous health consequences, such as high blood pressure, along with an increased risk of a stroke, cancer and blood clots.
As the report states “what compassionate and reasonable person would condemn young children to this fate knowing that after puberty as many as 88 percent of girls and 98 percent of boys will eventually accept reality and achieve a state of mental and physical health?”
Editor’s Note: What is the mental state of mind of parents who would do this to children? Children don’t have full sexual instincts until puberty, that’s nature. When a parent makes these assumes a child is the wrong sex and tries to change them, its a defect in the parent, not in the child. But its the child who is destroyed by these actions. We wrote about this before, and are happy to have pediatricians speak out.
