“They’ve found that the studies cited to support these medical interventions are too unreliable, and the risks are too serious.”
In an ironic twist, countries in Europe are now taking a more conservative position on gender transitions for minors than the United States.
The left is known for saying that America should be more like Europe. Does that standard still apply?

Europe pumps the brakes on transgender care for minors amid uproar in US
European countries are balking at approvals for gender transition services for minors even as the U.S. medical community has pressed forward with the practice despite ethical questions.
The U.S. is now an outlier on transgender issues in that America’s national medical groups are pressing lawmakers and regulators to not only allow, but encourage gender transition services for minors who say they may be transgender.
While the U.K., Sweden, Finland, Norway and France all allow puberty blockers and gender transition surgeries, medical professionals there are pushing back on their use on children, according to the Wall Street Journal. In the U.K., for instance, the National Health Service announced a rollback on the availability of hormone treatments, limiting them to clinical trials exclusively.
“These countries have done systematic reviews of evidence,” said Leor Sapir, a fellow who studies transgender care at the Manhattan Institute think tank told WSJ. “They’ve found that the studies cited to support these medical interventions are too unreliable, and the risks are too serious.”
Where is the Biden administration on this issue? They’re charging ahead.
Just last week, Nick Arama reported at RedState:
Biden’s Remarks and Flag Display at Pride Celebration Are Truly Messed Up
Joe Biden held a large Pride event on the South Lawn of the White House on Saturday with hundreds of guests.
Biden attacked laws that banned things like irreversible transgender surgery for minors, claiming that such laws were “anti-LGBTQ.” To Joe, seeking to protect kids from irreversible damage is “targeting” kids.
“These bills and laws attack the most basic values and freedoms,” Biden said, turning reality on its head. “The right to raise your own children.”
Wait, isn’t this the same guy who believes the state has the right to teach your children what it wants, whose administration targeted parents for speaking out against that? So parents who don’t like what the schools might want to impose on their children are bad, but parents who want to permanently cut off their child’s genitalia are cool.

These kids are going to grow up, and at some point, some of them are going to demand to know why they were allowed to make permanent changes to their bodies as children.
