From Giuseppe Gori, Leader of the FCP…
Ontario’s Health Minister has now reintroduced government funding for sex-change operations.
Our party had a policy against government funding of sex-change operations and other elective procedures since the early ‘90s.
Psychiatrist-in-Chief at Johns Hopkins University Paul McHugh classifies transsexualism as merely one symptom in a larger complex of personality disorders, McHugh believes that psychiatrists should treat such patients with the talking cure, not radical, irreversible surgeries.
After extensive research into the subject, he stopped “sex-change” operations at John Hopkins and encouraged other facilities to do the same.
Sex is defined at conception by a gene in the DNA. This triggers a series of hormonal changes that shape people physically and mentally before and after birth.
Sex “change” operations do no change peoples’ sex, but can only shape genitalia. Currently these operations can be performed on men (removing their genitalia and creating a female “pocket”).
Where are the feminists and human rights activists screaming “discrimination” and requiring this procedure to be stopped until the opposite procedure can be performed on women? Someone should call the HRC!
More seriously, the Ontario Health Minister is using scarce taxpayers’ money for cosmetics and deception, instead of basic health. (Source)
Good to see such a uniform opinion on such a medically necessary procedure…
After he became Psychiatrist-in-Chief at Johns Hopkins University, Paul McHugh found that “sex-change” operations failed to solve patients’ difficulties with relationships, work, or emotions.
In his First Things article, “Surgical Sex,” McHugh recounts finding the “transgendered” participants in “sex-change” operations unpersuasive evidence for the surgery’s effectiveness.
“The post-surgical subjects struck me as caricatures of women. They wore high heels, copious makeup, and flamboyant clothing; they spoke about how they found themselves able to give vent to their natural inclinations for peace, domesticity, and gentleness–but their large hands, prominent Adam’s apples, and thick facial features were incongruous (and would become more so as they aged).”
“Women psychiatrists whom I sent to talk with them would intuitively see through the disguise and the exaggerated postures. ‘Gals know gals,’ one said to me, ‘and that’s a guy.’”
Following his extensive research into the “sex-change” phenomena, McHugh ended “sex-change” operations at John Hopkins and has encouraged other facilities to do the same.
“I concluded that Hopkins was fundamentally cooperating with a mental illness. We psychiatrists, I thought, would do better to concentrate on trying to fix their minds and not their genitalia.” (LifeSiteNews.com)
