Catholic Medical Association Releases Position Paper on Gender Ideology and Its Harm to Children 

 As you read the position paper remember that the  Connecticut Department of Education encourages schools to affirm a student's expressed gender identity, without informing the student's parents. If the parents disagree with the students perceived gender identity the school is to support the student's position.

PLEASE READ THIS VERY INFORMATIVE REPORT

 

   At the Catholic Medical Association’s 92nd Annual Educational Conference in Phoenix Arizona, CMA released its anticipated position paper, The Ideology of Gender Harms Children.

  “Reviewing the evidence for purported treatments for gender dysphoria over the past year, we found the American medical establishment speaking from a place of eminence-based medicine rather than evidence-based medicine,” said CMA President Dr. Craig Treptow. “The ideology of gender is causing significant harm to children and adolescents. We speak up again now to prevent further harm to those children..."

   Agreeing with the findings of countries such as Great Britain, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and France –– once leaders in the gender ideology movement who have now changed course –– CMA believes that this attempt to address surgically and with hormones what should be treated psychiatrically with counseling is not authentic health care.

   Further, CMA rejects the claim that children with gender dysphoria will commit suicide if they are not quickly affirmed and set on the path of sex reassignment. This simplistic assertion is not scientifically supported.
