OH judge set to rule on treatment for transgender teen

gavel with stethoscopeA county judge is set to rule soon over the future of a troubled female teenager who wants to transition to a boy over her parents' objections. 

USA Today reported in a January story that parents and grandparents in Hamilton County, Ohio were fighting over for custody of the 17-year-old. 

The parents are opposed to major surgery for the teen but the grandparents support it while Judge Sylvia Hendon considers the outcome.

A ruling from the judge is coming any day.

Aaron Baer of Citizens for Community Values tells OneNewsNow that he blames county prosecutor Joe Deters for representing Job and Family Services, which was granted temporary custody and placed the teen with the grandparents pending a juvenile court ruling. 

An assistant county prosecutor is quoted in the USA Today story blaming the parents for allowing the teen to teeter on the brink of suicide.

The parents have sought Christian-based psychological counseling for the teen and are refusing treatment by a transgender clinic at the Cincinnati Children's Medical Service, where the teen underwent therapy for a short time. 

Homosexual-rights advocates dispute transgender people suffer from mental illness, although their suicide rate averages 40 percent. The U.S. average is about four percent of the general public. 

The news story quotes hospital staff who testifed the suicidal teen suffers from gender dysphoria, a term introduced in 2013 after the American Psychological Association was pressured by homosexual activists to drop the medical term "gender identitify disorder."

Baer says Deters will have to explain to voters "why he thinks it's okay for the government to take a child from its parents' custody because they don't want to allow them to transition their gender into a highly experimental and dangerous procedure."

It's dangerous and unethical to perform surgery and give life-altering drugs to a teenager, says Baer, "because it's making children commit to something and starting to make biological changes that will impact the rest of their lives."
