Undercover Video Shows Gender Clinics Recommending Life-Altering Puberty Blockers To Kids As Young As 8-Years-Old



On Wednesday, investigative journalist group Project Veritas released Part 1 of a series focused on the practices of gender transition clinics in the United States, obtained via undercover video.

In the video, medical professionals appear to say that they are giving kids as young as 8-years-old life-altering puberty blockers, and cross-sex hormones for children as young as 14-years-old.

“We do have patients who are starting [transition] as young as eight, nine [years old],” said Nora Scott, a licensed social worker at Austin-based Dell Children’s Medical Center, Project Veritas reported.

In the video, the undercover journalists asking about how 10-year-olds would be treated for gender transition are directed to Dr. John Steever at Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center in New York City.

Steever told the journalists that he follows the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) guidelines.

 “The way to go at this age — age 10 — would be something like a puberty blocker,” Steever said, adding that the drug “really stops puberty pretty quickly so that no further development of the secondary sexual characteristics happen. So, things like, there’s no real chest development. There’s no menstruation. Things like that.”

“When you then get to age 14 is when I’ll consider some, you know, cross-gender hormones,” Steever continued. “Fourteen is a reasonable age. Most kids are mature enough to make a relatively informed decision.”

“Cross-gender hormones, testosterone in this case, you know, do have some permanent effects. So, I need the patient to be a little — to be mature enough to make a relatively informed decision,” the medical professional admitted. “I get it, that there are some 14-year-olds that are not, you know, mature — but generally speaking, they are usually pretty good.”
