The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) has appointed a panel to draft healthcare policies for children, with a majority of the members being transgender activists.

Concerns have been raised about the lack of formal medical training among some members, as well as their advocacy for puberty blockers and hormone therapies for children with gender dysphoria.

The panel’s composition has sparked criticism for being one-sided and lacking representation from those with differing views on transgender healthcare. (Trending: GOP Rep. Mace Clashes Directly With Hunter Biden At Hearing)

W.H.O. spokesperson Tarik Jašarević, said, “WHO guidelines are always based on balancing of available evidence, human rights principles, consideration of harms and benefits and inputs of end users and beneficiaries.”

Reem Alsalem, the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on violence against women, said, the committee contains “significant unmanaged conflicts of interest.”

“Stakeholders whose views differ from those held by transgender activist organizations do not appear to have been invited,” Alsalem continued.

“Such stakeholders include experts from European public health authorities who have taken the lead on developing an evidence-based and consequently cautious approach to youth gender transitions (eg England, Sweden and Finland),” added Alsalem.

Additionally, there are concerns about the panel’s focus on a gender affirmative approach without considering alternative perspectives.

Stella O’Malley, psychotherapist and executive director of Genspect, said, “The WHO panel is made up mostly of social justice and human rights lawyers who believe the gender affirmative approach is the only option.”

“[They] will determine care guidelines for trans people, yet they do not have anyone to represent critical balance on their panel,” she continued.

O’Malley explained, “The gender affirmative approach is presumed by WHO to be the only way forward and thereby dismisses conventional psychotherapy.”

“This is a narrow minded and heavily biased approach. The WHO are making a grave mistake, they should pause this process and consult with the many professionals who hold different approaches,” she concluded.

The W.H.O. has stated that its guidelines will focus on adults, but some committee members are vocal in their support for medical procedures for children as young as 13.
