More than 200 doctors have called for an urgent inquiry into the risky medical treatment of children who believed they were transgender.
John Whitehall, a professor of paediatrics at Western Sydney University, is taking a stand against minors being prescribed puberty blocker hormones as a precursor to getting a sex change in adulthood.
His petition to federal Health Minister Greg Hunt, calling for a parliamentary inquiry into childhood gender dysphoria, received 131 signatures on its first day earlier this week.
That grew to 200 within three days, with doctors concerned about children as young as 10 being rendered infertile as a result of taking the controversial medication.
Their Word Press site, however, has been sabotaged with hackers preventing it from accepting new signatures, after 260 legitimate doctors had legitimately added their names.
The veteran paediatrician said puberty blockers - taken as a forerunner to cross sex hormones and sex change surgery - also had the potential to stunt bone growth and memory.
'The blockers affect the limbic system. Is there evidence of the reduced executive function if you give blockers to human beings? Yes,' he told Daily Mail Australia.
'The volume of the brain decreases at a rate 10 times faster than ageing.'

The Hippocratic oath does not seem to apply these days.
And what to do with the kid who says he wants to be Batman?
Yup...heard it. This is child abuse of breathtaking proportions. If a kid was convinced that he/she was the King/Queen of Spain would that child be taken to Madrid by the parents?
All I can say is, it is about, actually way past, time that doctors speak out against this.
The one I heard in an interview last year mentioned the above problems but said they are starting to accumulate evidence that cancer is more prevalent among the ones subjected to that "treatment." I think he said the body may be rejecting the unnatural situation and trying to stop it that way. Sad.
It’s child abuse, pure & simple. Any doctor that says otherwise should have his license stripped.
Its NAZI mutilation experimentation. It’s Joseph Mengele.
I find this entire thing astonishing. Breathtakingly astonishing, that medical institutions can devote entire programs to this horrible, horrible abuse of children.
I cannot believe the state of affairs in this world sometimes.
“The Hippocratic oath does not seem to apply these days”......these young people are “Lab Rats”...
They’re using children to promote their own warped agenda. Much as in the case of Greta Thunberg.
The medical profession, like everything else, has been taken over by pseudo intellectual progressives, that are in fact regressives. The world has been turned in its collective head. This better change and quickly, as this is not a positive in any shape, form, or fashion.
Well, the site was blocked by hackers, and no doubt many doctors fear retribution. But I agree nonetheless.
The slippery slope is even more slippery than we thought it would be.
But what will all the cool people who do this to their children for attention, do? Please think about them......
How does a child even know about ‘transgender’, unless some adult put the idea in his/her head? We’ve seen kids who haven’t even gone through puberty claiming that they’re not the sex they were born into.
Child abuse, indeed.
Heard that interview and the one after....
