The Biden administration endorsed a series of procedures this week for ‘Transgender Youth’ including sex-change operations and hormonal therapies for minors.
“Medical and psychosocial gender affirming healthcare practices have been demonstrated to yield lower rates of adverse mental health outcomes, build self-esteem, and improve overall quality of life for transgender and gender diverse youth,” The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Population Affairs release states.
“For transgender and nonbinary children and adolescents, early gender-affirming care is crucial to overall health and well-being as it allows the child or adolescent to focus on social transitions and can increase their confidence while navigating the healthcare system,” adds the the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Child Traumatic Stress Network – another subset of the HHS. “It may include evidence-based interventions such as puberty blockers and gender-affirming hormones.”
