‘Butchers were murderously wrong’: New study finds risk of suicide jumps 12-fold AFTER gender surgery

A new study has found that people who’ve undergone transgender surgery boast a much higher risk of committing suicide.

Published last month in Cureus, a medical science journal, the study specifically found that “[g]ender-affirming surgery is significantly associated with elevated suicide attempt risks.”

The researchers reached this conclusion by analyzing the healthcare data of 90 million adults aged 18 to 60. They specifically looked at emergency room treatment data for those who’d undergone transgender surgery.

The patients were divided into four groups — one containing people who’d undergone transgender surgery and an E.R. visit, and one containing people who’d undergone no transgender surgery but who had partaken in an E.R. visit.

The third group included “adults with emergency visits, tubal ligation or vasectomy, but no gender-affirming surgery,” and the fourth group included patients with pharyngitis.

What the researchers found is that “[i]ndividuals who underwent gender-affirming surgery had a 12.12-fold higher suicide attempt risk than those who did not.”

Of the patients who’d transitioned, a whopping 3.5 percent were later treated for suicide attempts. Conversely, only a paltry 0.3 percent of non-transitioned parents reported a suicide attempt.

The study’s findings sharply contrast the Biden administration’s claim that transgender surgery prevents suicide versus promoting it.

“Research demonstrates that gender-affirming care improves the mental
health and overall well-being of gender diverse children and
adolescents,” a handout from the Biden HHS reads.

“Because gender-affirming care encompasses many facets of healthcare needs and support, it has been shown to increase positive outcomes for transgender and nonbinary children and adolescents,” it continues.”

But this clearly isn’t true.

Responding to the latest study, DailyWire+ host Dr. Jordan B. Peterson slammed President Joe Biden and also Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for promoting transgender surgery.

“12x the suicide rate post ‘gender affirming’ surgery,” he wrote in a tweet. “The butchers and liars were murderously wrong.”

“The Cass report indicated this. Canada and the US are still enabling this. That’s you @POTUS and @JustinTrudeau and it is utterly barbarous and inexcusable. Putting children to the knife. ‘Follow the science,’ gentlemen,” he added.


Responding to Peterson’s tweet, many expressed agreement.


The release of the study last month came around the same time that Dr. Hilary Cass, one of England’s top pediatricians, released her own damning report about transgender surgery.

“Her final report, published last month, concluded that the evidence supporting the use of puberty-blocking drugs and other hormonal medications in adolescents was ‘remarkably weak,'” according to The New York Times.

On her recommendation, the U.K.’s National Health Service stopped prescribing puberty blockers outside of clinical trials. Cass also recommended that testosterone and estrogen only be prescribed with “extreme caution.”

Meanwhile, last year a study out of Denmark reportedly found that people who identify as transgender boast a suicide death rate 3.5 times higher than those who don’t.
