New evidence shows Tasmanian Government must reject harmful TLRI report

A new British scientific study has found no evidence to back up claims that the negative cognitive effects of puberty blockers are fully reversible. Rather, there is some “evidence of a detrimental effect of pubertal suppression on IQ”.  

Tasmanian State Director of the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL), Christopher Brohier, said, “The scientific evidence continues to mount against treatments that are recommended by the Tasmanian Law Reform Institute (TLRI) Report which forms the basis of the Tasmanian Government’s Justice Miscellaneous (Conversion Practices) Bill 2024. To proceed with the TLRI recommendations in the face of the negative reports, including by the World Health Organisation, would be irresponsible at best, madness at worst.  

“The Tasmanian government cannot, in all good conscience, proceed with harmful medical interventions that have been shown to sterilise vulnerable people and potentially suppress IQ”.  

Brohier continued, “The proposed Bill, based on the TLRI Report, gives an effective green light to such practices and restricts the ability of parents and the community to point out to young people this mounting evidence. Tasmanians deserve better. The Government must reject the TLRI Report and call a halt to its proposed Bill”.  

The ACL calls on the Tasmanian Government to establish an independent judicial inquiry into care for sex confused children and consider all the international scientific evidence before proceeding with the Bill.
