It’s always baffled me how politics can override medical common sense. For instance, giving a minor a Tylenol without parental permission can get a school nurse fired, but it’s okay to arrange an abortion for that same minor without even telling her parents. A similar PC force-field has been erected around hormone-based drugs, whether they are given out by clinics or schools for contraception or intended to block puberty in children who think they’re the opposite gender. Doctors who protest that there may be dangerous side effects get attacked for being politically-incorrect.
Well, at the link is a sobering personal testimony from someone who is still suffering serious, even tragic side effects of a hormone drug, and they’ve now touched three generations. Every Halloween, parents fret over someone giving their kids candy laced with drugs. Yet we let authorities hand out hormone drugs like candy to our kids, and we’re not even supposed to question it?
