…Puberty blockers…are not approved for delaying puberty in children experiencing gender dysphoria. And yet, the Biden Administration is actively promoting that off-label use as part of a “gender-affirming care” regimen. Even if you believe elementary school children experiencing gender dysphoria should be able to delay puberty, shouldn’t you at least want to make sure the drugs are safe?
 
That is the question I asked Dr. Lawrence Tabak, the acting director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), last week…. Tabak’s answer? “NIH funds a small number of observational studies,” and over time, “we will be able to better answer the types of questions that you're posing.” 

In other words, there are no answers. We have absolutely no meaningful data regarding the long-term implications of giving these radical, life-altering drugs to elementary school children…. And yet, the Biden Administration, the media, and so-called “experts” are actively promoting them. It’s irresponsible and dangerous…. As with COVID, it appears that for woke ideologues, “following the science” means getting the preferred outcome regardless of the evidence.
 
We need to have a higher standard when it comes to administering life-altering drugs to children. As usual, Florida is leading the way in establishing that standard. Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo cited “the lack of conclusive evidence” and “the potential for long-term, irreversible effects” in his memo blocking medical treatments for children with gender dysphoria….
 
It is time we start holding woke public health officials responsible for their dangerous advocacy. It is the only way we’ll be able to protect our children from this extreme, irresponsible zealotry.
