SILVER SPRING, Maryland (LifeSiteNews) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is putting a warning label on several puberty blockers after a report released early this month found that the drugs cause serious side effects in children.
According to the FDA report, puberty blockers, or gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) substances, lead to a condition called pseudotumor cerebri, or elevated spinal fluid pressure on the brain, with symptoms similar to a brain tumor. The report showed that six girls between the ages of five and twelve experienced brain swelling, loss of vision, headaches, blood pressure increase, dizziness, and other symptoms of a brain tumor.
A spokesman from the FDA, speaking to Formula Watch, stated that the warning was issued because the agency determined that the symptoms were clinically severe.
“The agency considered the cases clinically serious and, based on these reviews, determined that pseudotumor cerebri … should be added as a warning and precaution in product labeling for all GnRH agonist formulations approved for use in pediatric patients,” the spokesperson said.
“Although the mechanism by which GnRH agonists may lead to development of pseudotumor cerebri has not been elucidated, and patients with [central precocious puberty (CPP), or early onset puberty] may have a higher baseline risk of developing pseudotumor cerebri compared with children without CPP, this potential serious risk associated with GnRH agonists justifies inclusion in product labeling,” he added.
The spokesperson told Formula Watch that the agency conducted an independent review of scientific literature dealing with the drugs after AbbVie, the company that markets Lupron, identified several publications that found pseudotumor cerebri in children with CPP taking the drug.
The Biden administration has supported the use of puberty blockers in children. Assistant Secretary of Health Richard “Rachel” Levine, a man who thinks he is a woman, defended giving children puberty blockers earlier this month in an interview on MSNBC.
There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.
Consider these 3 questions:
- Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5?
- Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
- Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active?
A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.
In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity.
We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!
The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

This nut could end up being your child’s teacher and you wouldn’t even find out the craziness they’re teaching until your kid tells you about it. If you aren’t disturbed after watching this, you’re a lunatic. School choice is the civil rights issue of our generation. pic.twitter.com/y1V3Rotx9k— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) August 17, 2021
Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.
Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes.
Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.
Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting:
That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.
The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.
Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.
Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.
When asked for an opinion on states barring gender confused men from women’s sports, Levine said “we really want to base our treatment and affirm and to support and empower these youth, not to limit their participation activities in sports and even limit their ability to get gender-affirmation treatment in their state.”
Levine also tweeted this month that giving puberty blockers to children is “medically necessary.” Levine’s position was attacked by Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who stated that “gender affirming care” is a euphemism for sterilization and castration.
Accredited medical professional groups agree that gender-affirming care is medically necessary, safe, and effective for transgender and non-binary children and adolescents.

About 100 percent of boys and 90 percent of girls with gender dysphoria come to accept their biological sex as they reach adulthood, according to the American Psychiatric Association, but virtually all of those started on puberty blockers later take cross-sex hormones, as LifeSiteNews has reported. These drugs sterilize users and typically lead to devastating transgender surgeries.
Puberty-blocking drugs, like Supprelin LA and Lupron, are linked to serious, permanent side effects, such as osteoporosis, cognitive impairment, and sterility. Republican have recently proposed several bills to protect children from irreversible gender transition operations and drugs.
