FINALLY! A positive story...+for once.

The National Health Service (NHS) in England announced that puberty blockers for children will be banned since they do all harm and no good. The publicly funded group’s decision should be a model for the rest of the world that doesn't seem to recognize, or choose to ignore, the fact that permanently ruining a child’s God-given, perfectly healthy body, is antithetical to what the word “care” means.

The NHS said that “outside of a research setting, puberty-suppressing hormones should not be routinely commissioned for children and adolescents,” on Friday according to AP News.

The move, which England’s government confirmed is one that prioritizes the “best interests of the child,” comes after a review of puberty blockers for kids, led by pediatrician Dr. Hilary Class, indicated that there were too many “gaps in the evidence base.” 

Class indicated that there was a “lack of long-term evidence and data collection on what happens to children and young people who are prescribed medication,” TalkTV paraphrased Tuesday. “Which means it is not possible to accurately track the outcomes and pathways that children and young people take through the service."

London’s Gender Identity Development Service is scheduled to be replaced by four new regional clinics set to open later this year, AP News reported. Additionally, as TalkTV indicated, these newer clinics will seek to focus on a more “holistic approach to care.”

Now, puberty blockers for kids will only be available as part of clinical research or “on an exceptional, case-by-case basis.”

In response to the news, health minister, Maria Caulifield, said the following: 

We have always been clear that children’s safety and wellbeing is paramount, so we welcome this landmark decision by the NHS.

Ending the routine prescription of puberty blockers will help ensure that care is based on evidence, expert clinical opinion and is in the best interests of the child.

It’s exciting to see that the tides are turning and that kids in England will be safe from the terrifying destruction and demise that is caused by puberty blockers. Let’s hope and pray that in the future legislators in the U.S. adopt the same sort of policies that will help kiddos.
