    “Within ten minutes they had offered our child Lupron”

    Lupron is lucrative.

    In urology, one such myth is Dr. Lupron. Dr. Lupron was a great doctor. His specialty was metastatic prostate cancer, and he was a game changer. He was also very well reimbursed, and the joke went, "Why don't urologists work on Fridays? Because Dr. Lupron does.”

    Lupron Victim Advocate Issues Urgent Warning

    November 11, 2019

    It seems that my body is slowly decomposing, and I feel like a hobbled, twisted ruin in agony. My medical records describe me as a “frail, cachectic, chronically ill appearing woman who appears older than stated age.” Because of exhaustion and my accelerated mobility impairment and health decline over these last few years, I’m taking a doubtful view on my longevity. And these thoughts leave me with many concerns, one being the possibility I could leave this world before being able to put a lot more information onto my website.

    Before taking Lupron in 1989, I was a healthy 32 year old woman. I was gainfully employed, physically vibrant and very active. I took daily Lupron for only 9.5 months: 6.5 months in 1989 for ‘treatment’ of endometriosis, and a total of about 3 months during several IVF attempts in 1990 and 1991. I tried refusing Lupron for IVF, but was told that I “must” take it. Women in the past often reported that their doctors were shoving Lupron down their throats. In this era and context, these women did not want or seek or request Lupron...

    'A live experiment on children': Mail on Sunday publishes the shocking physicians' testimony that led a High Court judge to ban NHS's Tavistock clinic from giving puberty blocking drugs to youngsters as young as 10 who want to change sex

    The shocking evidence that convinced a High Court judge to effectively ban an NHS gender clinic from giving puberty-blocking drugs to children can be revealed for the first time today.

    Until now a court order has prevented the testimony of eminent physicians being made public. But lawyers for The Mail on Sunday successfully argued there was a significant public interest in disclosing the material.

    Among the devastating statements that can now be divulged is one from Professor Christopher Gillberg, an expert in child and adolescent psychiatry, who believes prescribing drugs to delay puberty – a first step in gender treatment – is a scandal and tantamount to conducting 'a live experiment' on vulnerable children.

    'In my years as a physician, I cannot remember an issue of greater significance for the practice of medicine,' he said.

    'We have left established evidence-based clinical practice and are using powerful life-altering medication for a vulnerable group of adolescents and children based upon a belief.'

    In their statements, Prof Gillberg and other leading medical experts revealed:

    Puberty-halting drugs can harm a patient's brain and bone development;
    Clinics are urging gender-changing teen girls to choose sperm donors to fertilise eggs before freezing them;
    Medics are failing to warn about the infertility risks posed by puberty blockers;
    Children who regret treatment find themselves 'locked' into new bodies;
    Internet sites persuade autistic children they are transgender when they simply have 'identity issues'.

    The Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) clinic in London, also known as the Tavistock Centre, began prescribing puberty blockers to under-16s in 2011. There has been growing concern ever since about the irreversible, life-changing dangers...

    After the Keira Bell verdict
    An English ruling on transgender teens could have global repercussions
    Worries grow over treatments that can leave children sterile
    International
    Dec 12th 2020 edition

    IN 2018 ANDREA DAVIDSON’S 12-year-old daughter, Meghan, announced she was “definitely a boy”. Ms Davidson says her child was never a tomboy but the family doctor congratulated her and asked what pronouns she had chosen, before writing a referral to the British Columbia Children’s Hospital (BCCH). “We thought we were going to see a psychologist, but it was a nurse and a social worker,” says Ms Davidson (both her and her daughter’s names have been changed). “Within ten minutes they had offered our child Lupron”—a puberty-blocking drug. “They brought up the drug directly with our child, in front of us, without discussing it with us privately first.” There was no mention of other mental-health issues, which are known to increase the likelihood of gender dysphoria, the feeling that you are in the wrong body. “There was no therapy on offer and we were just brushed aside when we raised it.”

    Meghan belongs to a wave of children across the Western world who have identified as transgender in recent years. America had one gender clinic in 2007; now it has more than 50. Piecemeal evidence around the world suggests that three-quarters of children expressing gender dysphoria at such clinics are adolescent girls, whereas until recently it was roughly evenly split. An increasing number are also de-transitioning, choosing to revert to their previous gender. Unfortunately, if children have already begun a medical transition, including hormone treatment, it can leave them infertile and unable to have a full sex life...
