A gender clinic has been closed in the United Kingdom by the National Health Service (NHS) after investigations into the clinic found that children were being misdiagnosed purposely with a gender identity disorder, even when they never had one.
Tavistock Gender Identity Clinic has been in operation since 1983 and was closed due to the public outcry.
Zero Hedge reported:
With the concept of transsexuality being widely promoted by the corporate media, leftist parents, public school teachers and many western governments, it’s no wonder so many children are starting to feel like they need to join the trend and signal their virtue. In general, most children want to make the adults around them happy and the pressure to conform to gender identity fads is immense.
Tavistock, the only gender and sex change clinic in Britain, went from treating around 130 child patients per year in 2010 to treating nearly 2400 in 2021. In fact, the clinic was facing overwhelming demand for services by the time it was finally shut down, and numerous proponents of sex change treatment for children argued that MORE clinics like Tavistock would soon be needed.
What changed in the past decade? Not the percentage of people born with gender dysphoria; that would be statistically impossible. The only thing that has changed is that Trans identity politics are now a fad and young people are being specifically targeted with trans propaganda.
In 2020, Tavistock was taken to court by a former patient, Keira Bell, who alleged that she had been too young to consent to the treatment she received during her transition from female to make as a teen.
Initially, Bell won her case, but it was later overturned on appeal and stating that “it was for doctors and not judges to decide on the capacity of a person under 16 to consent to medical treatment.”
This is a dangerous precedent – doctors too can become politicized and that can lead to less than ethical practices. The court supported the notion that doctors can decide what is best for your child and whether they need gender-bending pharmaceuticals and surgeries.
The shut down of Tavistock, however, shows that concern is growing over the practices surrounding gender ideology and that children have been permanently mutilated before they are even old enough to fully understand sexuality.
Over 1000 families of former patients are currently suing Tavistock.
It seems the health care business is exactly that – a business and some doctors are willing to exploit children for large sums of cash via government grants and insurance and numbers have been inflated to justify the clinics existing in the first place.
Doctors and other health care professionals that imbibe in this sort of behavior do not deserve the trust of the public, nor their patients – they are using children as political pawns to create a damaged generation of confused and indoctrinated adults.
