Doctors Give Gender-Confused Children Same Drug Used to Castrate Sex Offenders. Media Calls It ‘Health Care.’

Last week, The Daily Wire reported that a drug called Lupron, used as a puberty blocker for “transgender” children, has been linked to thousands of deaths. Shortly after this story was published, NBC News denounced The Daily Wire for pushing “fake news,” naming myself and Ben Shapiro as the culprits who shared and disseminated the “anti-transgender rhetoric.” Ironically, however, their article debunking our “fake news” is itself fake news.

NBC explains that Lupron is often used to treat prostate cancer in adult men and most of the deaths associated with the drug are “likely” among these patients. This is no doubt the case, and The Daily Wire never said otherwise. In fact, our original report specifically noted that Lupron is being prescribed off-label as a hormone blocker for gender-confused children. But think about what NBC is doing here. They are defending the use of this potentially dangerous drug among physically healthy children on the basis that it’s really designed for use among terminally ill men. Don’t worry, says NBC, Lupron is just chemically castrating children. Most of the people who die from it are adults. Sure, we don’t really know all the risks inherent in suppressing the normal growth and development of children who are confused about their gender, but it probably isn’t killing them, as far as we know, at this point. This is NBC’s argument.

Forget about adverse side effects for a minute. The desired effect of a drug like Lupron in a healthy child is adverse. It is intended to interfere with the normal, natural development of the child. The whole point is to force their bodies to artificially remain in a prepubescent state. If anything, The Daily Wire understated the dangers involved in this practice by focusing more on the side effect than the primary effect — which in itself is horrible enough. . .

If NBC was a real news outlet, it would be debunking this great fraud being perpetrated by the medical industry at the expense of innocent children. At the very least, it would express some level of skepticism at the claim that puberty should literally be treated like cancer if a child is confused about his gender. But there is no skepticism, much less moral indignation, on the part of NBC or any other left-wing outlet. Indeed, these slayers of the “fake news” dragon are more than happy to present radical far-left gender theory as fact. They even call puberty blockers “trans health care” right in the headline, with no indication that this form of “health care” is, to put it mildly, controversial. To put it a little less mildly, but still accurately, the drug used on physically healthy children is the same one used to castrate sex offenders. Here’s an interview with a sex addict who voluntarily went on the drug because he couldn’t stop himself from sleeping with prostitutes. It is this very same chemical that doctors now give to physically healthy prepubescent children. And NBC, without a whiff of skepticism, calls it “health care.” (Read more from “Doctors Give Gender-Confused Children Same Drug Used to Castrate Sex Offenders. Media Calls It ‘Health Care.’” HERE)
