UK Court Rules Children under 16 Cannot Take Puberty Blockers

In the News

”Children under the age of 16 considering gender reassignment are unlikely to be mature enough to give informed consent to be prescribed puberty-blocking drugs, the high court has ruled.“

One of the claimants was a 23 year old woman who started taking puberty blockers when she was 16 - and has done changed her mind.

Is this law beneficial for the children and the families who are currently undergoing these treatments?

Or do we think it’ll only have the adverse effect of making people resort to illegal means of hormone treatment.

No transphobic or insensitive language, please.
