Transgender clinic bullied mom into treating her son

Apr 4, 2023 | True Patriot News Daily

You may have seen in the news that the transgender movement is actively bullying parents into “treating” their children by prescribing harmful hormone blockers and additional medications to change children's genders.

It's one thing to hear statistics about the number of children who identify as trans or non-binary, but once you read this mother's story about being bullied by a transgender clinic, you'll have a new perspective on the epidemic of transitioning youths in America. 

Caroline, a mother of a teenage son who was coaxed into transitioning, sounded the alarm on the clinic that bullied her into keeping a hormone-blocking implant in her son's arm. Her warning to other parents about the harm that comes from “reversible” hormone changing medicines cannot be ignored. 

Among the many side effects that come with hormone-blockers are depression, weight changes, and suicidal ideation. When Caroline was rightfully-concerned about her son's behavioral changes, the clinic said that they wanted to keep her son on the hormone-blocker. Caroline says that she was manipulated by the transgender clinic when she was asked: “Do you want a dead son, or a live daughter?” 

This is just one of many such cases of transgender clinics pressuring parents and children to undergo irreversible hormone transitions, and it's happening all across the nation. To say that this isn't an epidemic is to deny the realities all around us. If you'd like to read more about Caroline's harrowing story, please read this article from The Free Press. An excerpt of the article has been copied below: 

When he was 14 years old, Caroline’s son got a pharmaceutical implant in his arm that was supposed to help relieve his psychological distress. It was a puberty blocker called Supprelin, and it would continuously release a drug for about the next two years that would arrest further sexual development. Caroline, 43, had been queasy about approving this, but she was assured by the psychologist at the The Washington University Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital that this was what her son needed—that it was the standard treatment for young patients experiencing discomfort with their sex.

Instead of providing relief, Caroline told The Free Press, her son experienced a devastating decline in his mental and physical health after this intervention. Among the side effects of Supprelin, according to a handout from the Transgender Center, are “mood changes, and weight changes.” The manufacturer’s website also lists “depression, including rare reports of suicidal ideation and attempt.” 

Casey (not his real name) soon experienced all of these. Within a semester, Casey went from all As and Bs to a report card dotted with Ds and Fs. Many days he found it impossible to get out of bed. He missed so much school that it triggered an official meeting about his truancy that included a circuit court judge. He gained more than 30 pounds.
