The liberals are always blaming ‘right wingers’ of denying science. Yet, clearly the thought that you can choose your sex and that it isn’t something you’re born with is a complete denial of science. A group of pediatricians are speaking out against National Geographic’s “politicized” cover for demeaning science and the well being of those children.
From The Blaze:
American College of Pediatricians president Michelle Cretella said that National Geographic is “promoting a political agenda over science and the wellbeing of innocent children” by displaying the young child as the face for their first ever transgender cover.
“Affirming so called transgender children means sterilizing them as young as 11-years-old,” Dr Cretella told Lifesite News. “Puberty blockers plus cross-sex hormones causes permanent sterility. And biological girls who ‘transition’ to male by taking testosterone may have a double mastectomy at age 16. The life time use of cross-sex hormones also puts these children at risk for stroke, heart disease, diabetes, cancers and more.”
Cretella says that enabling a young child to become a transgender is harmful and based on illogical reasoning. “When a child under the age of 12 thinks they are the opposite sex and is allowed to naturally pass through puberty, 75%-95% of the time that child will accept his or her biological sex by the late teen years.”
She also added that the American College of Pediatrician’s position is that medical facilities supporting a child’s “transgenderism” is basically child abuse.
