“Puberty-blocking procedures promoted by the Biden/Harris Admin are child abuse,” Gabbard wrote on Twitter. “The FDA has just confirmed these hormones/drugs have extremely dangerous side effects, like brain swelling and vision loss.”
Last month, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned that gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), AKA puberty blockers, could cause brain swelling, vision loss, and other serious risks for children.
Gabbard’s criticism comes after U.S. assistant secretary for health Rachel Levine, the first transgender federal official confirmed by the Senate, endorsed children receiving “gender-affirming care.”
“Gender-affirming care is life-saving, medically necessary, age-appropriate, and a critical tool for healthcare providers. As a pediatrician, when it comes to making sure kids are healthy and happy, I know how important care that affirmed someone’s true identity can be,” Levine said.
