The so-called progressives in our state have been experimenting with dangerous “off-label” hormone drugs on very young children, and the evidence increasingly proves this is harmful and irreversible. Why do Becca Balint, David Zuckerman, and other progressives pushing this vile agenda never have to answer for their positions, and when will enough parents and children be harmed that there is a proper public discussion about this radical effort? By the time that conversation arises, the question won’t be “should children receive these therapies?” but “who is responsible for inflicting this horrible experiment on children?”
Puberty blockers known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone substances have been administered to young children in Vermont to assist in “transitioning hormone therapy.” UVM explains that this is indeed experimental, because no progressive experimenting physicians have ever prescribed such drugs to children in the past:
Patients at The UVM Medical Center benefit from the knowledge that comes from an active research program. Our researchers are committed to facilitating the translation of research from the laboratory, to the patient’s bedside, to the community, in order to make a difference in the lives of our patients. And these discoveries not only improve care for people here at The UVM Medical Center, but across the country and around the world.
There is a chicken-and-egg problem here — they don’t really know what these drugs will do to children until after they have enough guinea pigs:
“People in the medical community have not studied trans people in an affirming and non-pathologizing way for very long—and it takes quite a bit of time to study things like fertility, as these outcomes would happen decades after puberty blockers,” explains Quinn Jackson, M.D., a family practitioner in Kansas City, Kansas, who has a special interest in caring for gender-nonconforming patients. “This is one of those areas where we don’t have a ton of data to guide us.”
Progressives were the progenitors of both the eugenics movement and its associated Nazism. So-called “progressive” physicians also subjected tens of thousands of people to irreversible lobotomies, claiming they were serving them and their families.
Similar to voices criticizing those tragic policies, any effort to critically question today’s progressive initiatives to inject gender-altering and sterilizing drugs to young children are harshly condemned. When I announced my candidacy for Governor in 2019, I was attacked for opposing transgender surgeries for children by Vermont’s Democrats.
I do hope that the place of gender hormones for kids in our politics is more closely scrutinized. Perhaps then Vermonters would more closely scrutinize the progressive politicians who have rashly pushed this macabre experiment on other people’s children.
David Zuckerman says parents who question trans-conditioning of children in schools (including pronographic novels in school and public libraries) are “bigots”; Becca Balint gaslights parents by dissembling that these genuine concerns are “banning the word gay”: and Rep. Elizabeth Burrows (who is also on a school board!) prides herself on sponsoring legislation that would permit UVM to perform these experiments on very young children without parental consent, behind their backs.
No wonder these modern progressives are moving so fast and furtively to cover up what they have already done — imagine if there is accountability when these healthy children are left more wrecked than the lobotomized and sterilized children of the past. (Vermont also “prides” itself on being one of only three states in the country to be the “first” to allow “emancipated” teenagers to elect a number of transgender surgeries at public expense.) When all these disastrous experiments are fully exposed, children around the world will indeed benefit from the surreptitious Frankensteinian experimentation conducted here — having proven it horrific.
Recently the FDA issued a chilling warning about these off-label (unapproved for use in children for this purpose) drugs:
Puberty blockers, known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) substances, received a warning from U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials earlier this month, saying the drug could cause brain swelling, loss of vision, and serious risks for children injecting the hormone. … Officials said a plausible association between using puberty blockers and pseudotumor cerebri, which displays symptoms similar to a brain tumor, was identified in six young girls between the ages of 5 and 12.
I completely stand by and affirm my position critically assessing these rash experiments without parental involvement on 5-year-olds (the “science” clearly demonstrates that alienating children from parents through this “process” causes emotional trauma). I question when Vermont’s Democratic Party and candidates, and UVM Medical Center, will honestly address these very real scientific threats.
Their place in Vermont politics, and children’s lives, should be scrutinized from every angle.
