U.K.’s National Health Services (NHS) is freezing the sperm of males as young as 12 and preserving the eggs of girls as young as 16 who plan to transition to the other sex through surgery and drugs so that these children can have their own biological children later.
These fertility procedures are costing hundreds of thousands of pounds and are not welcome by everyone, including one Anglican bishop, Michael Nazir-Ali. “The NHS is about treating people who are ill—that’s what we pay our taxes for,” says the bishop. “It is not to aid people’s various wishes about what they want to do with their bodies or their futures.”
Why is the NHS involved in fertility? The Telegraph reported in July that the number of British minors being referred to gender identity clinics is significantly on the rise, including children as young as 3 years old.
