Silenced Voices: The Battle for Inquiry into Puberty Blockers for Australian Children

It seems that no matter what, Labor and the Greens will do everything they can to avoid giving the Australian people a say about the explosion of Australian children being treated for gender dysphoria with puberty blockers. 

This week, for the third time, Senator Pauline Hanson sought an inquiry into the use of puberty blockers following the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) announcing it would no longer permit children under 18 to be prescribed them. 

The NHS said: “We have concluded that there is not enough evidence to support the safety or clinical effectiveness of [puberty blockers] to make the treatment routinely available at this time.” 

As the Senator revealed when she first pushed for an inquiry, there was a 10-fold increase in Australian children being treated for gender dysphoria in public gender clinics. 

More alarmingly, there was a 100-fold increase in children being treated with puberty blockers over the same period. 

“If it was any other condition, such huge increases would warrant multiple inquiries into the causes,” she said. “But with this condition, any call for an inquiry similar to what has happened in the UK is blocked by extremist ideology and the hideous politics of identity and victimhood embodied by Labor, the Marxist Greens and regressive Liberals.” 

If Britain can listen to its people on the issue of gender dysphoria, so can the Australian Senate.
