Leaked Filess of WPATH – a Wake-up Call on Gender Transitioning Treatment

The leaked files of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) must be a wake-up call for the Victorian government regarding gender transitioning treatments. 

Victorian State Director of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL), Jasmine Yuen said, “In a shocking revelation, this “trusted” global organization upon which many gender clinics, including the Royal Children Hospital (RCH) rely on to draft their standard of care and treatment guidelines on transgender treatments, has been found to be violating ’medical ethics and informed consent’. 

Michael Shellenberger, the President and founder of Environmental Progress pointed out the lack of credibility of WPATH, saying, “The WPATH Files show that what is called ‘gender medicine’ is neither science nor medicine.” 

Victorian State Director of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL), Jasmine Yuen said, “The 250 pages of leaked WPATH messages have exposed the ugly truth that health professionals are aware of life-long irreversible harms caused by puberty blockers and hormonal therapy, including carcinogenic risks, yet continue on the path of gender treatments on children. 

“It is shocking that the health of so many children has been sacrificed in this experimental project, as ideologically driven health professionals use outdated treatments on children whilst knowing they are unable to quantify the life-long physical and psychological harms.” 

The revelation of WPATH’s leaked files underscores the urgent need for an independent inquiry into the affirmative model of the RCH’s gender clinic. 

The ACL calls for the immediate suspension of all gender transition treatments until an urgent inquiry into RCH’s gender clinic’s reliance on WPATH’s guidelines is resolved.
