Government Sanctioned Mutilation of Children
While our own government allows itself to be manipulated and jerked around by the daft machinations of the ‘woke’ movement, other countries are starting to see the abuses that are being perpetrated on children, in order to placate the noisy minority.
Late last year, our Canadian government passed legislation that allows the indoctrination of innocent Canadian children in diverse sexual practices, while it prohibits those who were misled into that lifestyle to seek help in leaving it . . . it was a one-way ticket. Can you imagine leaving life-altering choices up to children, and, should they regret that choice, denying them the right to change their minds? Only in Canada, eh?
This was the bill (C-4) that passed in Parliament last year with all Members of Parliament unanimously failing to question a law that allows someone to entice a child into a particular lifestyle but making it illegal to help that same child change his or her mind and seek a way out of that lifestyle. Ironic, isn’t it? You’re allowed to change your body, but you can’t change your mind . . . .
Meanwhile in England, the former president of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, Dr. Hilary Cass, was commissioned to look into the question about England’s handling of sexual dysphoria as they were treating it.
The ‘Gender Identity Development Service’ (GIDS) (called “Tavistock”) had issued puberty-blockers to children as young as 10 years old. Very little mental health assessment was done, even if the children being treated had a history of mental health issues. If the children asked for gender reassignment, they got it! Sadly, the numbers were so high it became unmanageable.
The danger of this became readily apparent when a young lady, Keira (Quincy) Bell, took Tavistock to court because she believed she had received insufficient counselling. She was physically mutilated to make her look like a boy. Then, she regretted taking the road that they had put her on.
The U.K. High Court decision found that, “it was ‘highly unlikely that a child aged 13 or less would be competent to give consent to the administration of puberty blockers;’” that it was “doubtful that 14 or 15 year-olds could understand the long-term risks and consequences;” and that “the authorization of the court should be sought before treating children over 16.”
In other words, children are too young to make such life-altering decisions.
In her assessment, Dr. Cass found that there was too little consideration being given to mental health disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, and Learning Disabilities, prior to commencing the path to transitioning. Dr. Cass also sought more research into the effects of puberty blockers on a young person’s brain development.
Dr. Cass expressed concern over puberty-blockers affecting the executive functioning of a child’s brain, which is responsible for planning, decision making and judgement. There has been little research done into the long, medium and short-term effects on children’s neurocognitive development.
The problems at Tavistock were further cited as: “inadequate assessment, rushed medicalization, failures to safeguard children, indifference to the special vulnerability of disproportionately autistic and same-sex attracted patients, substandard research, undue influence of political actors, such as trans activist groups Mermaids and Stonewall, and intimidation of whistleblower staff.”
Finland and Sweden have both abandoned the ‘affirmation model.’ France urges the utmost caution in the use of puberty blockers. The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists has said, “Better evidence in relation to outcomes, especially for children and adolescents is required.” And, “Assessment and treatment should . . . fully explore . . . the biopsychosocial context from which this has emerged.”
Other countries are waking up to the pitfalls of believing the ‘woke folk.’ But, is Canada?
The Children’s Hospital in London, Ont. dispenses puberty blockers to wait-listed patients “prior to their initial appointment.” I have to wonder how you can receive ethical treatment for a medical condition that you have not discussed with a doctor. Would a reasonable doctor treat a person with chemotherapy without having seen them or run the appropriate tests for cancer?
Another young lady, in a short 8 weeks, went from the first meeting to recommended medicalization.
In B.C. a father was court-ordered to silence on his young daughter’s sex change. He opposed her transitioning, but rather than supporting his right as a parent to guide the life-altering decision of his 13 year-old daughter, the court turned it into a criminal case with the father being sent to jail.
Another mother successfully prevented a double mastectomy for her daughter, but why should she even have had to deal with a question like that? Still, we must be thankful for her victory; too many are losing these battles. The children who later change their minds—like the young lady in Tavistock—will wonder, “Why didn’t somebody protect me from the pressure of the sex-change promoters?”
Canadians need to be aware of the manipulations that our children are facing. The ‘woke folk’ in our country want to control our children. They have successfully supported legislation that removes a parent’s influence over their own children’s sexual maturation. They have also ensured that, once they have gained that control, they will not lose it because parents, pastors, doctors, etc. are not allowed to help clear the fog of disinformation that has been used to confuse children. As Adolph Hitler said, “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.” It’s time for us all to stand up and take back our children’s futures.
CHP Canada has stood, from its inception, for parental rights. We cannot do it alone! We need to hear many courageous voices calling for a return to sanity, parental authority and the long-term health of Canada’s young people.
