Puberty Blockers Banned for Minors in England

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” – Matthew 18:10

A massive win for children is coming out of England with a recent announcement from its National Health Service (NHS). England’s National Health Service has officially banned puberty blockers for kids and children.

The NHS in England has realized the truth that confused and vulnerable children need real psychological care and treatment and not “treatment” like puberty blockers that only cause more harm to the already hurting children. The guidelines put out by the NHS state, “Puberty blockers … are not available to children and young people for gender incongruence or gender dysphoria because there is not enough evidence of safety and clinical effectiveness.”

The guidelines go on to correctly state that for minors, “Most treatments offered at this stage are psychological rather than medical. This is because in many cases gender variant behavior or feelings disappear as children reach puberty.” Studies have shown that children who suffer from gender confusion will naturally grow out of that confusion, and that is what England is now promoting.

In the United States, unfortunately, there are still 27 states that allow puberty blockers and other gender transition procedures. Thankfully, however, in last year’s legislative session in Kentucky, puberty blockers and gender transition surgeries were blocked for minors in our Commonwealth.


Father, we praise You for this wonderful news coming out of England that the NHS is now protecting minors from puberty blockers. Lord, we are thankful to live in Kentucky where puberty blockers and gender transition surgeries are banned for minors. Father, please empower the 27 states in our nation that have not passed legislative measures to protect children and kids from puberty blockers to do so. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
