Russia’s State Duma, their lower assembly, has banned gender reassignment in Russia. All political parties voted to pass the new laws “unanimously.”

“This decision will protect our citizens and our children,” State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said in a statement. He added that the rate of reassignment surgeries in the United States “is a path leading to the degeneration of their nation. This is unacceptable for us.”

The legislation outlaws all “medical interventions aimed at changing the sex of a person.” It prohibits Russian citizens from changing their gender in official documents and public records.

It contains an exception for medical interventions to treat congenital anomalies. 

Lawmakers adopted an amendment to annul marriages if one person in the marriage changed gender. Another amendment prohibits transgender people from becoming foster or adoptive parents.

The bill restricts registry offices from amending official documents based on medical certificates of gender change.

It is the third and final reading of the bill in the lower house of parliament. The new legislation must now go before the upper house. It then goes on to President Vladimir Putin to be signed into law.

Western Politicization of Transgenderism

Stephen Hammes is the president of the endocrine society, He writes at the Wall Street Journal that the more than 2000 studies since 1975 claiming gender affirming care improves the well-being of transgender and gender diverse people and reduces the risk of suicide, is not supported by the best available evidence.

“Every systematic review of evidence to date, including one published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society, has found the evidence for mental-health benefits of hormonal interventions for minors to be of low or very low certainty.

By contrast, the risks are significant and include sterility, lifelong dependence on medication and the anguish of regret. For this reason, more and more European countries and international professional organizations now recommend psychotherapy rather than hormones and surgeries as the first line of treatment for gender-dysphoric youth.

“Dr. Hammes’s claim that gender transition reduces suicides is contradicted by every systematic review, including the review published by the Endocrine Society, which states, “We could not draw any conclusions about death by suicide.” There is no reliable evidence to suggest that hormonal transition is an effective suicide-prevention measure.”

The politicization of transgender healthcare in the U.S. is unfortunate. The way to combat it is for medical societies to align their recommendations with the best available evidence—rather than exaggerating the benefits and minimizing the risks, Hammes writes. Twenty-one clinicians and researchers signed the letter.

Suicide

Numerous other studies show transgender people are eight times more likely to attempt suicide. They are 3.5 times more likely to succeed. Data indicate that 82% of transgender individuals have considered killing themselves. Of that number, 40% have attempted suicide, with suicidality highest among transgender youth. Studies often attribute the cause as minority stress without evidence. It’s only a theory.

He gleefully talks of performing these surgeries on children.
