Parent Groups React to Puberty Blockers For Boys

( – Parent groups have expressed their concerns after a medical study was released that showed the results of what puberty blockers in boys could cause. Ultimately, the study showed that puberty blockers could cause many health problems including long-term fertility issues.

A study conducted by Mayo Clinic looked into more than one hundred thousand sperm cells from male children with gender dysphoria and they looked at boys who had been on puberty blockers for some time. The results showed that those with puberty blockers had mild to severe sex gland atrophy which meant that this accelerated the aging and function of testicular cells.

Claims have previously been made about puberty blockers saying that the effects were not permanent, but this study shows that the effects can be permanent. Along with this, researchers also detected microlithiasis, a calcium buildup in the testicles, which can be linked to testicular cancer.

Tiffany Justice, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, said “We believe that when parents have accurate information about puberty blockers and the irreversible harms that they cause, we will see a drastic drop in the amount of parents agreeing to put their children on these drugs.”

She continued, “The problem has been that American medical institutions, hospitals, and the American Academy of Pediatrics have not been honest with parents about the harms of puberty blockers and the possible harms, and that’s unforgivable.”

The American Academy of Pediatrics has long supported these treatments but they have asked for a review of the treatments, even though they continue to support them. Tiffany Justice said that she feels terrible for parents who thought these effects could be reversible.

“Parents deserve accurate information when they’re making decisions for their children. And no child is able to consent to puberty blockers,” Justice said.

Some people felt that they were attacked when they spoke out against these treatments, as they were portrayed as being “transphobic” but now, with the study, it turns out that their concerns were valid.
