Thanks to a Freedom of Information Request, we now know the source for the recent change to NHS England information about puberty blockers.
A US anti-LGBT blog.
Christine Burns MBE, who was instrumental in the creation of the Gender Recognition Act, on Twitter:
NHS England used justifications from a US hate campaign to alter its public facing web pages on puberty blockers, which were then cited in a Judicial Review
As the account that published the FOI response explains, the website “is funded by US conservative think-tank The Witherspoon Institute. An anti-LGBT and anti-abortion far right group.”
There’s a horrific mix of malevolence and incompetence around trans healthcare right now: incompetence within and malevolence without.
