Medical paper reveals uncomfortable facts about transgender "sex re-assignment surgery"
- From medical, psychological, and ethical perspectives
POSTED: June 4, 2010
What's the medical truth about the hormone, drug, and body mutilation procedures which attempt to "change" a person's sex -- that are even being promoted to and used on children?
As a result the radical activists, fringe medical practitioners, and far-left politicians are given free reign in the public forum on this issue.
In fact, the Massachusetts Legislature is considering the Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes Bill -- which would change our laws to force all citizens to accommodate these behaviors (and even promote them in our schools), and punish people severely who don't agree. Is this the right thing to do?
The National Catholic Bioethics Center is not intimidated, and has published an important paper in their magazine, National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly, by three prominent figures in this field: Richard P. Fitzgibbons, MD, is a psychiatrist and psychologist with over 25 years' experience dealing with same-sex attraction and related behaviors. Philip Sutton, PhD, is a psychologist who has done extensive research on the treatment of unwanted homosexuality. Dale O'Leary is an award-winning researcher, author, and lecturer. All three authors have with been active with NARTH (National Organization for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality) for many years.
This paper reveals many uncomfortable truths about a subject that most medical people unfortunately don't want to touch.
Below is the abstract of the paper:
The Psychopathology of "Sex Reassignment Surgery": Assessing its Medical, Psychological and Ethical Appropriateness
by Richard Fitzgibbons MD, Philip Sutton PhD, and Dale O'Leary
At the very least, this should be required reading for every politician in the Massachusetts Legislature.
