Mother sues gender identity clinic over puberty blockers

The mother of a 15-year old teenage girl who was referred to the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) for children and adolescents is suing it over the administration of puberty blocking drugs, and, supported by a former clinician, is crowdfunding for support. Several critics have argued that the only way the practice of ‘transitioning’ minors will end is for people to sue the clinics responsible.

The mother, referred to in court as ‘Mrs A’, argues that the administration of these puberty blocking drugs should be stopped until a review has been conducted and more knowledge comes to light about their effect.

The truth is that there is knowledge available about the effect of these puberty blocking drugs, but information that has been collected in the UK by Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, which runs the GIDS, is being both misrepresented and ignored.

That study was entitled ‘Early pubertal suppression in a carefully selected group of adolescents with gender identity disorders’. It was sponsored by the University College London Institute of Child Health.

The Health Research Authority found a large number of very serious problems with this 2010 study. Several are reprinted below from its report:
