Your help is needed to encourage the federal Health Minister to hold an inquiry into the treatment of young people with gender confusion.
Trans activists are putting pressure on Health Minister Greg Hunt not to pursue a national inquiry. That’s despite over 200 doctors last year signing a petition urging him to hold an inquiry into the risky medical treatment of young people who believe they were born in the wrong body.
“We write as Australian doctors to support Professor John Whitehall’s call for a formal Parliamentary Inquiry into ‘the rapid rise of childhood gender dysphoria in Australia and the lack of scientific basis for current medical treatment,’” the doctors wrote.
“We appeal to you to establish a Parliamentary Inquiry into this deeply troubling matter, where parents, teachers and lawyers as well as doctors and others may bring their concerns to our elected representatives for thorough consideration,” the letter goes on to say.
There have been claims that a national inquiry would be “dangerous”. But the real danger lies in not applying proper scrutiny to experimental treatments on children and teenagers which have life-changing consequences.
There has been an explosion in the number of teenagers being treated for gender dysphoria. An inquiry into the treatments they are being subjected to is overdue.
Most children who suffer gender dysphoria come to accept their bodies at later stages of development.
Please take a few moments to send a quick email to the Health Minister urging him to protect the welfare of children by holding a national inquiry.
