Another Western nation retreats big-time on sex changes for kids

As Joe Biden pushes for one of his administration’s major goals – much more transgenderism among America’s youth – other nations around the globe are pulling back on their plans to provide those chemicals and body-mutilating surgeries.

According to a new report from CBN, Biden’s Health and Human Services chief, Xavier Becerra, affirmed Biden wants to use taxpayer dollars to provide those body modifications to both minors and adults when their doctors claim the procedures are “medically necessary.”

But, the report said, Sweden now has announced plans to retreat from its scheme to supply transgender treatments.

It is the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare that now has changed its guidelines, conceding that “care has been characterized by both deficiencies in accessibility and a lack of knowledge about the results of the care,” the report revealed.

Sweden previously has stopped allowing puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones for minors, and now it is ending mastectomies to minors.

According to CBN, Thomas Linden, of the national board, said,”Young people who suffer from gender dysphoria need to be able to quickly receive an investigation and be offered adequate care measures, based on the health and medical services’ assessments of the care needs. Good psychosocial care is fundamental.”

Previously, the guidelines pushed puberty blockers to girls as young as 8, the report said.

CBN said Sweden is just one of several nations pulling back on the extreme ideological agenda.

It reported, “As CBN’s Faithwire reported, England’s National Health Service recommended that doctors limit gender medical treatments for children.”

There, a draft guidance said young, pre-pubescent children should be treated based on “evidence that, in most cases, gender incongruence does not persist into adolescence,” the report said.

CBN reported that Wesley J. Smith, of Discovery Institute’s Center on Human Exceptionalism, said the U.S. should into adopting Sweden’s plan.

That, he said in the report, “makes clear that, despite the caterwauling of gender-ideology warriors, there is no general scientific agreement — much less certainty — on how to best care for children with gender dysphoria, nor is there currently the depth of knowledge or the kind of systematically collected evidence required to assume that certainty.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.

To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.

Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.

All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
