A controversial gender identity clinic is facing mass legal action from thousands of families of children who claim they were rushed into taking life-altering puberty blockers, weeks after the NHS shut it down in the wake of a damning report
Thousands of young people were treated by the Tavistock gender identity clinic in London and in many cases were prescribed the powerful drugs to delay the onset of adolescence.
The clinic was shut down as investigations and public outcry grew over allegations that it was haphazardly diagnosing children with gender identity disorder even when they were normal.
Zero Hedge reports: 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.
The controversy around Tavistock deepened in 2020, when the center was taken to court by Keira Bell, a former patient, who argued she had been too young to consent to the medical treatment overseen by the GIDS that began her female-to-male transition as a teenager. Bell won her initial case but it was overturned on appeal, with the court of appeal reaffirming the principle of Gillick competence that “it was for doctors and not judges to decide on the capacity of a person under 16 to consent to medical treatment.”
In other words, it’s up to the same doctors that have a political agenda and stand to make considerable money by conning children and teens into believing they are trans. These doctors, with no science whatsoever to back their claims on gender identity, are the people that get to decide if your child needs gender affirmation drugs or surgeries in the UK.
Tavistock’s shut down reaffirms the growing concerns among the public about the deceptive nature of gender ideology and the fact that children with no legitimate understanding of sexuality have been mutilated chemically and physically in the name of political cultism rather than personal health. It has been recently revealed that the clinic is also facing a massive lawsuit of at least 1000 families of former patients and the list is expanding daily.
