A group of senators in France is calling for a ban on transgender medical services for children.

Led by Senator Jacqueline Eustache-Brinio of the French political party, The Republicans, the group released a report Tuesday sounding the alarm about children receiving puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and gender surgeries which can mean double mastectomies and genital surgery.

The lengthy 340-page report calls medically transitioning minors “one of the greatest ethical scandals in the history of medicine” and accuses transgender activists of pushing medical gender transition on children through aggressive social media campaigns.

France’s High Authority of Health is expected to make a recommendation on transgender medical services for minors soon, the European Conservative reported.

However, the French senators see the issue as urgent and said they plan to propose a bill before the summer to ban puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and gender surgeries for minors being treated for “gender dysphoria.”

Author J.K Rowling, a vocal critic of gender ideology, reacted to the French report with a quote from a book about the Titanic.

“And so it went. No bells or sirens. No general alarm. But all over the Titanic, in one way or another, the word was passed,” she posted Tuesday on X.

Both puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones come with serious health risks. Puberty blockers can affect bone growth and density and cause sexual dysfunction, voice damage, and infertility, among other issues. Cross-sex hormones can cause infertility, deadly blood clots, heart attacks, increased cancer risks of the breasts and ovaries, liver dysfunction, worsening psychological illness, and other serious conditions.


In recent years, critics have sounded the alarm about the permanent effects of these treatments and procedures, especially critics in Europe where gender ideology became influential years before it reached the U.S.

The French senators’ move comes just days after the British National Health Service announced a ban on puberty blockers for children.

England’s only youth gender clinic, Tavistock, will shut its doors for good at the end of this month, the National Health Service said.

The clinic, the biggest in the world referred thousands of children for puberty blockers. In its last years, Tavistock began to see an increasing flood of young girls with gender-related distress asking for drugs despite having other mental issues like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and histories of abuse.

In the U.S., at least 23 states have already moved to ban medical transgender services for children.

Those states are Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.
