Canadian doctor who treats ‘trans kids’ shrugs off lack of clinical trials
Doctor who treats ‘trans youth’ claims that banning medical interventions on gender dysphoric minors due to insufficient scientific evidence is on par with banning health care for pregnant women under the same circumstances.

A Canadian doctor who treats alleged trans youth has made an analogy one could easily mistake as parody, by comparing medical interventions like puberty blockers for 12-year-olds with the natural process of giving birth.

Canadian doctor says ‘gender affirming care’ as natural as childbirth

Dr. Jake Donaldson, a Calgary physician, was handpicked by the CBC to comment on the UK’s recent transgender policy decision, where their health authority banned doctors from prescribing puberty blockers to alleged “trans youth.”

The NHS decision justified their pivot away from medical intervention on alleged trans kids by citing an extensive report from Dr. Hilary Cass (aka the Cass report) that found the now-shut down Tavistock Gender Identity Clinic was unsafe for children, lacked evidence in dolling out prescriptions, and didn’t bother to track long-term data.

Asked about the UK’s decision by CBC, Donaldson said: “That would be kind of like saying for a pregnant woman, since we lacked randomized clinical trials for the care of people in pregnancy, we’re not going to provide care for you.”

In other words, Donaldson suggests that banning medical interventions on gender dysphoric minors— simply because clinical trials haven’t proven them safe—is on par with banning health care for pregnant women under the same circumstances.

Donaldson further stated there’s a lot of evidence proving ‘gender affirming care’ is safe and works, “just not in the form of randomized clinical trials.”

Dr. Peterson rips “detestable” CBC for handpicking far-left doctors in trans coverage 

In response to the CBC’s article propping up a doctor who compared medical interventions on children with childbirth, Canadian psychologist and author Dr. Jordan Peterson went scorched earth on the state broadcaster, accusing them of misleading readers by seeking out far-left doctors who support giving transgender care to children.

“Everything they publish is a lie in one damned way or another,” he said.

“All the truth the unrepentant butcher-enablers at @CBCNews are capable of is invisibly hidden in this one line: ‘Canadian doctors who spoke to CBC disagree…’”

“Right. All the ‘doctors’ who spoke to @CBCNews were chosen because they disagreed, ” he said.

WPATH under fire

Leaked files last month indicated that members of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) often engage in improvised treatments without meeting the rigorous standards expected in medical care. 

One leaked video clip shows one WPATH panel member acknowledging that many young adults who received so-called gender affirming care later experience “reproductive regret.” 

WPATH has not released a statement on their webpage in regards to the discovery.

However, in a March 28 statement, WPATH wrote, “As practitioners with decades of experience caring for transgender patients, WPATH members are leaders in developing and providing evidence-based medically necessary healthcare for our community and we’ll never stop.”

Earlier this month, a massive study spanning 15 years of 2,772 children revealed that most so-called “trans kids” eventually outgrow their gender dysphoria.

While the debate rages on, giving puberty blockers to children has been linked to possibly making them sterile and lowering their IQs.
