NT Inquiry into Gender Affirmation Therapy

Commissioned by the UK’s National Health Service, the Cass Review Final Report reveals there is no clear evidentiary basis for medical gender affirmation therapies in children. The review confirms that the evidence for puberty suppression and cross-sex hormone treatment is of such poor quality that no foundation exists for clinical decisions and informed consent. Recent document leaks from the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) have also revealed internal discussions among surgeons, therapists and activists, laying bare the flawed rationale behind transgender treatments and surgeries. Medical professionals must be allowed to use their trained professional discretion to take a cautious clinical approach to gender dysphoria.
