The regional council of Friuli Venezia Giulia in northern Italy has approved a motion which calls on the national government to prohibit the use of hormone-blocking prescription drugs used in so-called ‘gender reassignment treatment’ for gender-confused children.
These drugs prevent normal sexual development in adolescents.
The council’s motion clearly states that “puberty is not a disease” and therefore shouldn’t be prevented with medications or surgery that can produce irreversible effects. The motion also mentions the long-term negative effects of drugs containing the hormone-altering chemical triptorelin.
The motion reads, “There is no evidence, in fact of the effective full restoration of fertility in the case of withdrawal from treatment,” while citing data from the American College of Pediatricians which states that as many as 98% of minors outgrow their gender dysphoria or the feeling that one’s biological sex doesn’t match up with one’s gender expression).
Councilmember Mauro Bordin of the national populist League party told reporters from VoceControCorrente, “We express opposition to the use of this drug,” while adding that there hasn’t been enough clinical studies, “especially regarding the possible long-term negative effects and why blocking puberty pharmacologically could cause a misalignment in [adolescent] physical and cognitive development.”
Bordin argued that the motion is not an “ideological position but a proposal of common sense in the exclusive interest of the health of children throughout Italy.”
Medical scientists and physicians from around the world have also warned against medical interventions of individuals experiencing gender dysphoria.
In 2017, Dr. Michelle Cretella of the American College of Pediatricians stated, “Transgenderism is a psychological disorder, not a biological one,” adding “Consequently, we expect transgenderism and its associated medical procedures to increase as society increasingly promotes this lifestyle.
Dr. Cretella also has astutely criticized the recent decision by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons to use the term “gender confirmation surgery”.
“Linguistic engineering precedes and accompanies social engineering,” Cretella said.
“Transgender activist physicians realize that sex reassignment surgery is a misnomer. In other words, surgery cannot change a person’s sex. By renaming sex reassignment surgery gender-confirming surgery, they give the impression that they are affirming an inborn trait and further the innate immutable transgender myth,” she added.
The American College of Pediatricians has also released statements warning the surgeon general of the U.S. that hormones and surgery harm gender-confused children. The ACP referenced warnings issued by the U.K.’s Royal College of General Practitioners which notes that the long-term side effects of these procedures haven’t been subjected to enough medical research

…. dam, something I might actually temporarily agree with you nut jobs on. Of course, I’m smart enough not to believe anything ANYONE spews on the Internet until I’ve done my own background research on. That being said, I find the premise of you nut jobs preaching anything to do about children as hypocritical. Where are your emails critizing the monster parents who bring their children to one of Trump’s “rallies” where HE spews hate and racism all the while a bunch of inbred old white people and a few dumb ass people of color stand behind him clapping like trained circus seals…. also including a handful of white people that brought their young children to sit “rear and center” behind Trump allowing their young brains to be infected with the spewing hate of an old white man that has been screwing people out of their money for decades. Just this past week Trump was spewing his BS as usual instead of running the country (fixing the real problems) and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw two black children that were forced to stand behind the overweight white Neanderthal and listen to his racist crap about brown people. They both were looking around at all the white people clapping and cheering wondering when the crowd was going to turn on them. SICK, SICK TWISTED MONSTERS THAT ATTEND what is nothing more than a Klan rally. I’m very, very familiar with this grifter/thief. The national property development co. I worked for…. for decades, avoided his organization like the plague. BTW, my employer was in the top six in the country of developers that specialized in its particular type of developments (commercial & residential). So, while I agree no child should be allowed to be physically altered…. until they are mature enough to make the decisions by themselves vs. parents that are too desperate or over whelmed with guilt to think clearly…. I have to ask, where are you on all the other egregious acts of child abuse going on in our country by Trump and his administration? I can only imagine the number of law suits the American tax payer is going to pay for brought by the children that were ripped from the parents in some sick twisted idea that it would stem the flow of desperate immigrants trying to enter the USA. Believe me, if were one of those kids I know I wouldn’t have any problem finding a class action attorney the moment I turned 18… regardless of where I was in the world at the time.
This is not only sick it is also serious child abuse.
