Ginny Gentles, director of IWF’s Education Freedom Center, will join a panel event hosted by The Heritage Foundation on access to puberty blockers and hormones for youth in relation to mental health and suicide rates.

Does easing teenagers’ access to cross-sex medical interventions such as puberty blockers and hormones protect against adolescent suicide, as the left claims, or do such interventions have the opposite effect?

In a new study, The Effect of Access to Puberty Blockers and Cross-Sex Hormones on Youth Suicide Rates, Heritage Foundation senior research fellow Jay Greene, Ph.D. conducts an empirical analysis that examines this question – and finds alarming results. Using a superior research design, his analysis finds that easing minors’ access to cross-sex medical interventions is associated with a significant increase in the adolescent suicide rate.

Join us for a discussion about these important findings that have life-long implications for children and what they mean for teachers, counselors, doctors, and parents.

This event will take place Tuesday, June 14, 2022 from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm Eastern.
