The dangers of 'trangender' hormone therapy

gender confusion 3Information obtained by Family Research Council (FRC) reaffirms how dangerous it is for an individual to transition into a “transgender.”

Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg asserts that there are many known problems with gender reassignment surgery and cross-gender hormone treatments – which are the principal medical interventions that people identifying as transgender seek.

Sprigg told OneNewsNow that new information closely examines hormone therapy – which is essentially estrogen for men who want to transition to the opposite sex.

“A recent study of transgender patients in the Kaiser Health System showed that men who seek to identify as women actually have higher rates of blood clots, strokes and heart attacks than normal women have,” he informed.

Sprigg noted that there is an extremely high risk factor for these transitioning men, as indicated by the Kaiser study that involved 5,000 patients.

Although Family Research Council is not completely certain that all of the findings are 100-percent accurate in the Kaiser study, which was reported on by NBC News, the Christian nonprofit organization acknowledges that the research can be very helpful in recognizing the numerous deleterious effects of hormone therapy for men.

Transgender activists argue that people wanting to transition to the oppose sex – which is actually impossible – ought to be allowed to do so to reduce suicide … a tragic course of action that is prevalent among this gender-confused group.

“The best study that's ever been done on this issue – which looked at every person in the country of Sweden who had had gender reassignment surgery over a period of decades – found that the rate of completed suicides was 19 times higher among those who had had gender reassignment surgery than among the general population,” Spriggs recounted.

It was noted that being transgender is not a medical problem – it is a mental condition that is called “gender dysphoria,” which calls for therapy with mental health workers trained to deal with the issue. This therapy is designed to deal with the underlying problems causing the condition – and help people align themselves with their born gender.
