Study Re-Affirms That Puberty Blockers Harm Kids

April 8th, 2024 12:53 PM

I hate to say we told you so, but…

new study conducted by the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory concluded that puberty blockers are harmful for kids. Specifically, the study found that puberty blockers for "transgender girls" impact the testicular cell state and function of the biological boys they're given to.

The study used samples from the Mayo Clinic’s Pediatric Testicular Biobank for Fertility Preservation to examine what happens to testicular specimens when a boy under age 18 is prescribed puberty blockers. Results indicated that the boys who identified as transgender and had been on puberty blockers for between three months and four years could not properly ejaculate, whether because of reluctancy or physical inability. 

As the Washington Stand pointed out, two of those transgender patients “exhibited noticeable testicular ‘abnormalities.’” The same article reported the study found that "those who had been prescribed puberty blockers ‘showed abnormal testicular development’” and “abnormal testicular cell development.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve been warned about the negative impacts of puberty blockers. Even the New York Times warned about some of the risks back in February. Individuals who take puberty blockers have experienced hemorrhaging. Puberty blockers have also been found to impact a child's normal brain, bone, and reproductive system development.

“When adolescents are using blockers, bone density growth flatlines,” New York Times wrote in a piece in November 2022.

Not to mention, this damage is often irreversible and does nothing to help depression or anyone struggling with their true identity.

The MRC has reported on other groups sounding the alarm on these treatments. In July, the National Institutes of Health(NIH) acknowledged that puberty blockers have the potential to cause sterility, though that group continued to advocate for using tax dollars to fund said treatments. In March of this year, the National Health Service (NHS) in England banned puberty blockers for minors, citing studies that found that they do all harm and no good. The governmental agency insisted that their decision prioritizes the “best interests of the child.”

More and more red flags on these treatments are being raised, and this study by the Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory simply adds to the list. Let’s hope it's what people need to realize what we’ve been saying for years: this is not helpful for kids in any way, shape or form, and should be considered a form of child abuse.
