SF & Alliance must give clarity on Puberty Blockers

During a recent event Sinn Fein called for young people under 18 to have access to Puberty Blockers. Our Health spokesman Paul Givan has branded this as "reckless".

Paul Givan said,

Sinn Fein and the Alliance Party need to give clarity on whether children should be enabled to undergo irreversible treatments to change gender without parental consent. This is reckless.

Puberty blockers have life-changing impacts on children. Such medical processes are far more lifechanging than a tattoo, yet only adults can get a tattoo.

We have a duty to not only protect freedoms but also protect our children and young people from making decisions in childhood which they have to live with the rest of their days.
