AS BIDEN ADMIN PUSHES GENDER CHANGES FOR KIDS, FDA WARNS OF BRAIN SWELLING FROM PUBERTY BLOCKERS

The following information reveals a nation that has totally rejected God’s truth, values, and commandments. The government of the most powerful country in the world is putting the lives of children at risk in support of transgenderism. Read what the US Assistant Secretary of Health, who happens to be a man who identifies as a transgender woman, says about giving children puberty blockers: “life-saving, medically necessary, age-appropriate, and a critical tool for health care providers.” This is in spite of the FDA warning of dangerous side effects.

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) — a one-time Democratic presidential contender

At least, former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) — a one-time Democratic presidential contender — is rebuking the Biden administration for its support of puberty blockers for children. Gabbard’s comments come after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning against gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH), known commonly as puberty blockers. Gabbard stated in a video posted Sunday to her Twitter account “Unfortunately, at almost the exact same time the FDA issued this warning, Biden-Harris administration officials were making public statements actively promoting the use of puberty blockers and irreversible surgeries for kids.”

The late-July FDA warning came on the heels of contradictory comments from U.S. Assistant Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine, a man who identifies as a transgender woman. As well as saying, puberty blockers for children are “life-saving, medically necessary, age-appropriate, and a critical tool for health care providers, Levine added, “when it comes to making sure kids are healthy and happy, I know how important care that affirms someone’s true identity can be.

This transgender woman is the US Assistant Secretary of Health and a pediatrician so should be aware of the FDA’s warning of the immediate dangers of puberty blockers given to children, moreover, the long-term effects are totally unknown.

The FDA warning announced earlier this month about puberty blockers known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists (GnRH) stated that if injected into children could cause swelling of the brain, headache, blurred or loss of vision, tinnitus, dizziness, and nausea. The FDA said six cases were identified in young girls aged 5 to 12 years that had a plausible association between puberty blockers use and pseudotumor cerebri, which the Mayo Clinic identifies as the pressure inside the skull increasing for no obvious reason. The condition is also identified as idiopathic intracranial hypertension in which symptoms mimic a brain tumor. 

End times Biblical prophecies indicate that the lawlessness that we see playing out in our world is exactly what the world was like prior to God destroying all mankind with a worldwide flood. Peter warns us that in the “last days” scoffers will deliberately overlook the fact that “the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished“.

This is now the second letter that I (Peter) am writing to you, beloved. In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of a reminder, that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.2 Peter 3:1-7

JOHN HOPKINS PSYCHIATRISTS WARN AGAINST KIDS GOING TRANSGENDER

Almost Everything the Media Tell You About Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Is Wrong. A major new report, published today in the journal The New Atlantis, challenges the leading narratives that the media has pushed regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.

Co-authored by two of the nation’s leading scholars on mental health and sexuality, the 143-page report discusses over 200 peer-reviewed studies in the biological, psychological and social sciences, painstakingly documenting what scientific research shows and does not show about sexuality and gender.”

What were the conclusions of this study? “The major takeaway, as the editor of the journal explains, is that ‘some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence.'”

When it comes to the authors of this important new study, they are hardly right-wing, fundamentalist, conservatives. Hardly!

One of the authors, Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer, “is a scholar in residence in the Department of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a professor of statistics and biostatistics at Arizona State University.”

He has taught at eight universities (including Princeton and Stanford) and, “His full-time and part-time appointments have been in 23 disciplines, including statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology, public health, social methodology, psychiatry, mathematics, sociology, political science, economics, and biomedical informatics.”

The other author is even more acclaimed. Dr. Paul McHugh is “university distinguished service professor of psychiatry and a professor of psychiatry and behavioural sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He was for 25 years the psychiatrist-in-chief at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.”

Dr. McHugh “was elected a member of the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) in 1992. From 2002 to 2009, he was a member of the President’s Council on Bioethics,” among his many accomplishments.

These certainly sound like formidable scholars, and so their 143-page report, which, as stated, “discusses over 200 peer-reviewed studies,” should be taken very seriously when it challenges many of the major talking points put forward by gay activists arguing: gays are not born that way and can possibly change; “non-heterosexuals are about two to three times as likely to have experienced childhood sexual abuse”; when compared to the general population, “non-heterosexual subpopulations are at an elevated risk for a variety of adverse health and mental health outcomes”; and the idea that “a person might be ‘a man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’—is not supported by scientific evidence.”

Note carefully those closing words, which are a theme of the entire study: These foundational LGBT talking points are “not supported by scientific evidence.”

I can assure you, though, that rather than interacting with the scientific evidence presented in this formidable study, the vast majority of LGBT activists and their allies will dismiss it out of hand.

Why? Because, they will say, Dr. McHugh is an infamous transphobe who is totally out of touch with modern science while Dr. Mayer is unqualified to write on this topic.

Mind has Mountains

When it comes to Dr. McHugh, he committed the cardinal sin of opposing sex-change surgery during his tenure at Johns Hopkins Hospital, which is why that surgical procedure was dropped under his leadership. But he did this based on years of interaction with those who identified as transgender, interviewing them before and after surgery, ultimately concluding that, “We psychiatrists … would do better to concentrate on trying to fix their minds and not their genitalia.”

LGBT activists dismiss the most important consideration, we are made by God in His image. He is a loving God as shown by Jesus life, death and resurrection. God will answer the prayers of the parents who are concerned about the gender of their children and He will answer the prayers of the children.

Parents and doctors should be very concerned about taking the role of God with these children. Quoting Dr McHugh again: “We psychiatrists … would do better to concentrate on trying to fix their minds and not their genitalia.”
