Do Transgender Women Have a ‘Right to Gestate’?

Bioethics discourse is moving in an ever increasingly radical direction. One recent and recurring theme is that biological men who identify as women should have a “right to gestate,” that is, to obtain uterus transplants so they can become pregnant and give birth (probably via caesarian section.) One animal experiment has already been conducted toward this end.

‘Bodies With Vaginas’ and the Woke Dehumanization of Women

Suddenly, after decades of progress—indeed, when it is now deemed misogynistic to use once common descriptors such as “chicks” or “broads”—women are being reduced to crass identifiers generally related to their female body parts and/or biological functions. Read More ›

Amazon Bans Transgender Critics but Sells Suicide-by-Starvation Book

The book-selling ethics of Amazon’s management are truly twisted. The company readily offers books that intend to teach how to commit — and will result in — suicides. At the same time, it bans books that simply engage in a respectful debate about a radical agenda — about which, surely, reasonable people can differ — because that could wound people’s feelings.

Bioethicist: Right to Transgender Healthcare Akin to Freedom of Religion

Critics of the transgender moral panic have been arguing that the movement is akin to religion. Now, that criticism finds support in the Journal of Medical Ethics — only rather than a criticism, the author contends that there is a right to GAH — gender-affirming health care — that is equivalent to freedom of religion.

Opponents of puberty blocking can no longer be denigrated as supposed religious fanatics or transphobic haters. Hopefully, the ultimate beneficiaries of this sea change will be the children whose bodies will not now become fodder in the well-meaning but ultimately destructive name of “gender affirmation.” Read More ›

Bioethicist: Impose Puberty Blocking over Parental Objection

Jenner: Puberty Blocking ‘Proper Medical Treatment’

Children with gender dysphoria need to be protected from suffering the potentially permanent life-shattering consequences of “early” transitioning — vividly illustrated in a recent 60 Minutes report. By backing off a principled position to appease woke critics, Jenner made matters more fraught for these troubled youngsters. Read More ›

No NEJM: Blocking Puberty in Gender-Dysphoric Children Is Not Settled Science

Certain issues have been deemed by our betters among the elite as undebatable. One is climate change. But the fervor over that issue pales next to the attempt to prevent open debate about the propriety and safety of blocking the puberties of children diagnosed with gender dysphoria. Read More ›
