Nearly 150 British children who have autism were given puberty blockers after being referred to the country's only clinic for transgender children even though they might not be suffering from gender dysphoria at all, according to an official report.
A new "practice review" by leading clinicians at its Gender Identity Development Service has revealed that puberty blocker drugs, which prevent the body from maturing, were given to up to 150 autistic children at Tavistock Clinic in London between 2011 and 2017, according to The Mail.
The administering of drugs based on the assumption that they were born the "wrong" sex could lead to children having irreversible sex change treatment, it is feared.
These drugs can also permanently weaken bones, according to experts.
"It would be an absolute scandal if, 20 years from now, we discovered a load of people who are not transgender at all had been stuck on to a medical pathway because NHS personnel were told not to challenge young people who said they were transgender," Tory MP David Davies was quoted as saying.
In January, a psychologist at the clinic said that girls as young as 11 were being placed on puberty blockers and hormone treatment, and warned that schools act "within minutes" to register a child as the opposite sex.
Bernadette Wren, consultant clinical psychologist at the Gender Identity Development Service clinic in London, warned that schools in the U.K. were moving too fast in labeling a child as a member of the opposite sex.
"Schools might wait for the parents to approach them before changing things like names in the register, uniforms, pronouns, toilets, sports," she said at the time. "If a school just gets a whisper of a child who may be querying their gender and within minutes they are doing everything to make sure that child is regarded as a member of the opposite sex right from the word go — that may not be the best for that child."
Earlier this month, The Christian Institute in the U.K. said the number of children, some as young as 6, being referred under the guidance promoting transsexualism at schools after they express confusion over their "gender identity" had reached a record high in Scotland.
As many as 222 children were referred to specialist services last year, a 21 percent increase since the previous year. The average age of those being referred had also fallen from 15 years in 2014 to younger than 14 in 2017.
Last October, doctors in the U.S. warned about the permanent consequences associated with "experimental" puberty-blocking and sex-reassignment treatments, and about their justification not being backed by strong scientific evidence.
"What you are doing when you do a pubertal blockade is you are interrupting a normal developmental process," explained Paul Hruz, a St. Louis-based doctor who is a professor of pediatrics, endocrinology, cell biology and physiology at the Washington University School of Medicine. "Even if five, six or seven years later you stop that intervention, you cannot go back in time. You have already altered that development. It is incorrect and totally false to say that it is reversible."
AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS ALSO PUSHING PUBERTY BLOCKERS
The American Academy of Pediatrics has released a new medical guideline supporting the surgical and hormonal transition of transgender children and adolescents.
The left-leaning pediatricians association released on Monday a new policy statement on "ensuring comprehensive care" for transgender and gender-diverse children.
The new guideline comes after a study released earlier this month found that 51 percent of female-to-male transgender individuals have attempted suicide.
Included in the statement are suggestions that call for primary care doctors to do such things as installing gender-neutral bathrooms in their offices, putting up signs that show their office has a level of LGBT inclusivity and awareness and even recommends instituting "diversity training that encompasses sensitivity when caring for youth who identify as [transgender]" because it can be "helpful for educating clinical and administrative staff."
In addition, the guideline also supports puberty suppression — the use of chemical treatments to block the normal process of puberty in children. Although critics have warned about the permanent effects that PUBERTY BLOCKING TREATMENT can have on a children and adolescents, such as sterilization, the document repeats a claim that puberty suppression treatments are "reversible" and can be "used in adolescents who experience gender dysphoria."

Autistic children given sex change drugs by the NHS: Up to 150 youngsters treated with puberty-blocking jabs 'might not even be transgender'
Autistic teenagers are being given powerful drugs which pave the way for a sex change, despite experts’ fears that they might not be transgender at all.
The figure is based on an official report which found that a third of those referred to the Tavistock Clinic in London have strong signs of autism. By comparison, just one in 100 of the general population is thought to be autistic.
Overall, four in ten of the Tavistock’s patients go on to receive puberty blockers. If the proportion of potentially autistic patients going on to blockers is the same, around 150 will have done so.
Upon turning 16, most of those on blockers are given powerful ‘cross-sex’ hormones which alter their appearance. Testosterone helps those born female put on muscle and gives them body hair, while oestrogen promotes the growth of breast tissue in those born male.
Autism expert Dr Sally Powis said that autistic teenagers searching for a reason why they did not fit in could fixate on the idea that they were born into the wrong body. ‘If you know you’ve been different since you were a small child, there’s the possibility you consider it’s your gender that’s the issue, rather than autism,’ she said.
Psychotherapist James Caspian claimed that many clinicians felt unable to question gender beliefs, due in part to a recent Memorandum of Understanding banning ‘conversion therapy’ by the UK Council for Psychotherapy. ‘I have been contacted by psychotherapists who work with adolescents on the autistic spectrum who have expressed concern over the current climate,’ he added.
Psychotherapist Bob Withers, who has treated a number of transgender patients, said: ‘I think the Tavistock is under pressure because the trans lobby has become so dominant and powerful.’
THIS IS INSANE.
Pizzagate Related because Clinicians, Experts and Powerful Figures and Elites are Out to Damage Our Children. This is Sexual Abuse IMO.
