Uniquely dangerous

Just over two hours before Parliament closed for the election, the Tories rushed through an emergency statutory instrument to ban the private prescription of puberty blockers for under-18s. The reason for the ban, and for the rush? The health secretary says it is “essential to make the order with immediate effect to avoid serious danger to health”.

This medicine is so dangerous that the government is not banning, and does not propose to ban, NHS or private prescriptions for cisgender kids.
