(LifeSiteNews) — In her essential 2012 book The Global Sexual Revolution: Destruction of Freedom in the Name of Freedom, the German sociologist Gabrielle Kuby lays out, in painstaking detail, how LGBT activists managed to mainstream so many fundamentally radical ideas: by infiltrating international institutions.

By “infiltrating” she doesn’t mean some vast conspiracy –although I think it could be accurately described as such. What she means is that activists running NGOs have lobbied bodies such as the European Union and the United Nations for decades; that they make up much of the bureaucracy; that when any question of substance is discussed, they are present in force with briefcases filled with pseudo-scientific studies and carefully worded demands. 

That, of course, is still happening now, and the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-FAM) has been exposing and stymying their efforts since 1997 (I did an interview with founder Austin Ruse on his work and how globalist institutions are attacking life and family here, if you’re interested). Most of us pay little or no attention to what happens in boardrooms at UN or EU conferences, but the decisions in those rooms ultimately trickle down to the rest of us and have a real impact on our daily lives. C-FAM’s most recent report, for example, highlights the fact that the World Health Organization (WHO) is working on new medical protocols on “transgender” medical interventions – but not because they plan to follow the U.K., Scandinavia, and other jurisdictions in giving these so-called treatments a second look.

As C-FAM reports, this is being done “to fight the rapid spread of bans and restrictions on ‘transgender surgeries and drugs, especially for children,” and will be oriented toward “increasing access and utilization of quality and respectful health services by trans and gender diverse people.” Key goals of the WHO are mainstreaming “gender-affirming care” (by which they mean sex change surgeries and cross-sex hormones), “health workers education and training” (by which they mean the indoctrination of medical professionals), and the “legal recognition of self-determined gender identity” (by which they mean making it illegal to question gender ideology and making it mandatory to support these medical interventions on pain of punishment).  

The UN and the WHO are accustomed to attempting to force their will on developing countries; these medical protocols, however, will be at odds with new protocols in the Netherlands, Germany, Finland, and other traditionally compliant countries. These protocols are a naked attempt by transgender activists to stop the medical community from opposing what is the cruelest medical experiment being performed on young people since eugenics. From C-FAM: 

The WHO guidelines are expected to take these developments head on. The ‘guideline development group’ chosen by the WHO staff is comprised entirely of ‘transgender’ activists and medical providers. All 14 members of the group are already invested in expanding access to multi-billion dollar ‘transgender’ medical protocols, including for minor children. Two members from South Africa, Chris McLahlan, a psychologist specializing in ‘transgender-affirming care,’ and Elma de Vries, a family physician, are co-authors of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health’s (WPATH)’ guidelines for transgender health which advocate that children as young as 12 can consent to ‘transgender’ hormone treatment and surgeries and that children even younger than that should be encouraged to ‘socially transition.’

Another member is Cianán Russell, the Senior Policy Officer at ILGA-Europe, the leading homosexual/transgender advocacy organization in Europe also known for refusing to   condemn adult-child sex. Another, Ayouba El Hamri, is described as ‘a trans and feminist activist based in Morocco’ with several affiliations to ‘transgender’ advocacy groups. Others include an activist from Lebanon who works in ‘trans and queer feminist organizing,’ an ’empowered transgender woman’ from the Philippines, a Columbia University professor at the forefront of transgender advocacy, and other transgender advocacy personalities.

While the guidelines put out by the WHO will not technically be binding, they will be incredibly influential, and journalists will treat them as binding. When they are published, you can be sure you will see them constantly quoted by trans activists in every mainstream media outlet during debates on sex changes for children, legislation, and debates about gender. Journalists will demand to know if politicians “are aware of the WHO’s guidelines” and will accuse them of being “anti-science” if they express disagreement. We’ve seen this playbook unfold time and time again. We’re about to see it implemented again.
