Transgender children told to plan for future babies

in World by

CHILDREN are being advised to freeze reproductive tissue before puberty if they show signs they may want to change sex in the future.

The guidance from the Government-backed Human Fertilisation And Embryology Authority, for “trans and non-binary people seeking fertility treatment”, contains a section aimed at prepubescent children.

However, critics say the children it addresses are so young they still believe in “Father Christmas, fairies and dragons” and should not be considering “potentially life-changing decisions”.

The guidance states: “If you haven’t gone through puberty yet and you’re keen to start hormone therapy or puberty-suppressing medication as soon as possible, it may be possible for you to store your ovarian tissue or testicular tissue, which can be collected via a surgical procedure.”
