Study Undermines Widespread Claim That Puberty Blockers Prevent Suicide Among Trans-Identified Kids

A just-released analysis by the conservative Heritage Foundation calls into question the left’s oft-repeated claim that giving puberty blockers and hormone therapies to children who experience dysphoria — feeling out of sync with their biological sex — prevents suicide. The author of the report, “Puberty Blockers, Cross-Sex Hormones, and Youth Suicide,” concluded there is not compelling data to convincingly assert controversial medical interventions dissuade transgender-identified children from committing suicide.
