Pro-Gay Group Warns ‘Significant Risks’ in Transgender Medical Treatments for Children

A group of “left-leaning, open-minded, and pro-gay rights” professionals say it is “highly suspect” to affirm young people who claim to be transgender, and risky to provide them with hormonal and surgical treatments to change their bodies.

“Our concern is with medical transition for children and youth,” say Youth Trans Critical Professionals on their website. “We feel that unnecessary surgeries and/or hormonal treatments which have not been proven safe in the long-term represent significant risks for young people.”
