Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.
The focus this time: Medical insanity is difficult to cure, but ya gotta fight anyway.
First, a little mood music:
Mutilating and hopping kids on hormones is often declared to be a fundamental human right… but soon not any more in the U.K.
“Here’s some potentially good news to share today and for once it has nothing to do with the you-know-what story that’s drowning the news cycle. Across the pond in Great Britain, the other half of our special relationship has announced a change to their medical system that’s making the United States look pretty bad by comparison. The Brits have been dealing with their own wave of transgender unrest just as we have in America. But going forward, they’re not going to allow doctors to perform ‘transitional’ (and irreversible) ‘gender correction’ surgery on children. How surprisingly sane of them.”
Meanwhile, in South Africa, a doctor tried to encourage a women to not terminate her pregnancy. He was charged with medical misconduct. Thankfully two of the four ridiculous charges were dropped.
“A South African council reduced charges this week against a pro-life doctor who is being prosecuted for telling a pregnant woman that life begins at conception.
“Jacque de Vos, 32, was finishing his medical training in 2016 when the Health Professions Council of South Africa charged him with medical misconduct for trying to dissuade a pregnant woman from aborting her 19-week unborn baby.
“IOL reports the Health Professions Council dropped two of the four charges against de Vos this week. One charge alleged that de Vos distributed information that imposed his religious beliefs on patients and colleagues, and the second alleged that he was not objective in his recommendations about contraception, according to the report.
“Two charges remain, and his hearing is scheduled to continue on Monday. The doctor still is being prosecuted for allegedly trying to dissuade a patient from having an abortion and failing to respect a patient’s bodily autonomy, the report continues.”
At least one victim of being tricked into “transitioning” is fighting back in court.
“This isn’t the first time this has happened and I highly doubt it will be the last. A woman in London named Keira Bell has brought a lawsuit against a National Health Service (NHS) ‘gender clinic’ for allowing her to ‘transition’ to being a male when she was an underage teenager. She now regrets the decision and says that the staff at the clinic ‘should have challenged her more’ before allowing her to undergo the various treatments she received. One judge reviewed the request and the clinic’s efforts to have it dismissed and is allowing the case to move forward.”
