Can We Still Trust Our Pediatricians?

This week my mom’s heart has been unrested by reading random headlines.

This week Break Point published a podcast about Hospitals Open Pediatric Gender Clinics. You can listen the full audio in this link.

It literally hit close to home, because one of the hospitals is in Ohio. The Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron, Ohio, opened a new pediatric clinic for kids with gender dysphoria. Unfortunately, the clinic is dedicated to ideologically-based rather than evidence-based treatment.

The name of the hospital tells you all you need to know: the “Center for Gender Affirming Medicine.” So, if a child thinks or feels as if she’s in the wrong body, doctors will go along.

Akron Children’s joins dozens of other hospitals that have opened pediatric transgender clinics in the past decade. Clinical reports and interviews with doctors make it clear: Most will give kids, even pre-pubescent children, experimental drugs and supplements to fight their bodies’ natural maturation. Young girls are given testosterone, risking their ability to bear children. Young boys are given estrogen.

Most dangerously, children will be told that their feelings are the truth—the very same feelings that 80 percent of gender dysphoric children will outgrow.

Make no mistake: These hospitals aren’t healing. They are hurting.

The other news that have been in the radar is the case of James Younger , a case of mother transitioning a 7-year-old boy into a girl J against father’s wishes. In this case 4 things rocked me, I mean:

1. The mother is a peadiatritian;

2. She found a lawyer to defend her case;

3. She also find colleagues willing to testify on her behalf;

4. The court ruled on her favor!

The vision of this site is about discussing cultural and marketing ethical issues. Reading these news makes me questions what I am going to do next time I get a diagnose for the kids. Hippocratic Oath is just gone. I usually try to post uplifting news on Thursday evenings, but has been hard to ignore this two.

I would love to read your comments about it.
