The limitations on the interventions of trans people to protect minors from procedures that are harmful to their health continue to increase.

Now it is in the US state of Missouri where they have announced a series of measures to limit care for transgender people. Attorney General Andrew Bailey has confirmed that an investigation has been launched at the Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital for harming hundreds of children.

In a statement Bailey has stated “As Attorney General, I want Missouri to be the safest state in the nation for children. We have received disturbing allegations that individuals at the Transgender Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital have been harming hundreds of children each year, including by using experimental drugs on them. We take this evidence seriously and are thoroughly investigating to make sure children are not harmed by individuals who may be more concerned with a radical social agenda than the health of children.”

Other countries that also backed down

Scotland already communicated it a few months ago, when a man accused of rape entered a women’s prison claiming that he was now a woman. The United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Norway and Finland have rectified the hormonal treatment of minors and now recommend caution and psychological monitoring.

In the United States, Kansas became the first state to pass a bill that defines a woman as “someone who is biologically born female,” thus trying to ban transgender people from entering public places such as bathrooms or locker rooms. Tennessee also approved a bill that prohibited gender change operations and drugs in minors and South Carolina limited transgender people in the practice of women’s sports in public universities.

As we have previously published in our observatory, more and more countries in which these interventions were performed are rethinking their health policies to drastically modify the procedures with which these cases are addressed. They have modified their health policies to more prudent positions while waiting for new evidence on the suitability of the proposals to be applied in gender transition processes.
