UK Health System Claims Trans Women's Milk Is As Good As Natural Breast Milk For Babies

The mission to eliminate women continues, as transgender activists keep trying to convince people that men who call themselves trans women are able to successfully breastfeed babies just as much as women are.

We have witnessed the transgender movement take over American society by storm, resulting in many female collegiate athletes having their opportunities and medals stolen away by young men who call themselves trans women. There are even men appointed to positions of power in the government who pretend to be women, such as Rachel Levine, the 17th Assistant Secretary for Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Celebrities like Bruce Jenner, Hunter Schafer, and Laverne Cox have gained much fame in recent years for “coming out” as trans-identified men.

The delusions have even reached the conventional medical system, where many doctors are feeding into the mental illness of young women and removing their perfectly healthy breasts, calling it “top surgery” rather than a double mastectomy. Along the way, we have been told that men can get pregnant and are able to “chestfeed.” A recent article from The Telegraph shared that the NHS (National Health Service), the publicly funded healthcare system in England, deems “breast milk” from transgender women (a.k.a. men) to be just as healthy for babies as real breast milk. 

The NHS Claims Men Can Breastfeed Just as Effectively as Women 

The University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust (UHSNT) has recently articulated a position that breast milk from men who claim to be transgender women is nutritionally equivalent to that of mothers for infant feeding. This assertion was made in a communication addressing concerns raised by activists, emphasizing the outcomes of a regimen involving specific drugs that enable trans-identified men to produce milk.

UHSNT, which oversees prominent healthcare facilities including the Royal Sussex County Hospital and the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, is at the forefront of adopting supposedly inclusive terminologies, such as replacing the term breastfeeding with “chestfeeding.” This initiative is part of broader efforts to support individuals who call themselves trans and non-binary in the birthing process, culminating in the establishment of the UK's clinical and linguistic guidelines in 2021 that were meant to be pioneering.

The current controversy stems from inquiries by Children of Transitioners, an advocacy group founded to offer guidance to individuals whose parents have “transitioned.” The group questioned the advisability of infants being fed milk produced by trans-identified men. In response, the Trust defended its stance by referencing scientific studies and WHO recommendations that underscore the superiority of human milk over formula. A particular study cited by the Trust highlighted the negligible testosterone levels in the milk produced by transgender women and reported no adverse effects on infants over a five-month period, although it acknowledged the absence of long-term outcome data. Not exactly convincing, but the NHS seems to think it’s enough. 

Critics argue the Trust's recommendations may overlook the unique benefits of maternal breast milk and prioritize inclusivity over the well-being of mothers and their infants.

The process for a man to lactate involves the administration of progestin to develop milk-producing glands, followed by domperidone, a drug commonly prescribed off-label to stimulate milk production despite potential cardiac risks highlighted by its manufacturer. The Trust claims that the usage of such medication is deemed safe under medical supervision, advising parents to consult healthcare professionals regarding the transfer of medication through milk and its implications for infant health.

Critics, including representatives from Policy Exchange and campaign groups such as Sex Matters and advocates for women's rights in childbirth, have voiced concerns over the Trust's guidelines. They argue that the Trust's recommendations may overlook the unique benefits of maternal breast milk and prioritize inclusivity over the well-being of mothers and their infants. In contrast, the Trust maintains its stance, supported by particular scientific evidence, and redirects individuals seeking guidance to external resources like the La Leche League, which advocates for the breastfeeding or “chestfeeding” goals of all parents, irrespective of gender identity.

Children Are Suffering So Adults Can Live Out Their Delusions 

A lot of times, it’s easy to laugh at the trans movement because it’s founded on the most ridiculous idea that someone can suddenly “transition” into a different gender. But when it comes down to the health and well-being of infants, it’s anything but funny to see men’s delusions prioritized to such a degree. The NHS may be referring to scientific studies in an attempt to prove that synthetic “chest milk” is perfectly healthy for babies, but we have seen time and time again how easily research is twisted and misconstrued in order to land at a specific outcome. An honest scientific consensus that includes multiple long-term studies has not been conducted yet, and it likely never will be, because it would prove that men are not able to produce nutritious milk that is enough to sustain a baby. 

Breastfeeding is not a feasible option for every mother, but its benefits for both baby and mother are unparalleled. Breast milk is a complete source of nutrition for infants, packed with antibodies that protect against various illnesses, and it plays a crucial role in the healthy development of the brain and nervous system. Additionally, it reduces the risk of leukemia and numerous other health conditions in babies.

The advantages of breastfeeding extend beyond just the infant; it significantly benefits the mother's health as well. It lowers the chances of developing postpartum depression, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Moreover, breastfeeding fosters a unique bond between mother and child, supporting emotional well-being alongside physical health. The natural method of feeding not only ensures the optimal development and health of the child but also contributes positively to the mother's health, making it the most recommended approach for infant nutrition.

Breast milk is a dynamic and adaptive substance that cannot be replicated with any kind of synthetic hormones.

Science is able to shed light on the incredible magic that is involved in breastfeeding. For example, when a baby is exposed to pathogens, the mother's body detects these through close contact and the baby's saliva. Because breast milk is a dynamic and adaptive substance that cannot be replicated with any kind of synthetic hormones, it is uniquely responsive to a baby's needs. The remarkable biological system (which is unique to women) triggers the mother's immune response, leading her body to produce specific antibodies tailored to combat the detected pathogens. These antibodies are then transferred to the baby through breast milk, providing targeted immune support to help the infant fight off the illness. This process exemplifies the sophisticated, natural defense mechanism inherent in breastfeeding, ensuring that breast milk evolves in composition to meet the changing health requirements of the baby.

There is nothing in a man’s body that is able to match this kind of wonder. Although science has been able to explain this amazing biological phenomenon, there is still so much about breastfeeding that science hasn’t yet been able to identify or explicate. True science plays an important role in the medical field, but we can’t deny that it can sometimes be misused and abused to make a certain claim or result in a particular outcome (coronavirus is a great example as of late). Regardless of what the NHS says, we should never accept the unnatural, disordered idea that men are able to breastfeed children after taking a concoction of synthetic hormones and drugs. 

Closing Thoughts

We should be appalled at The Telegraph’s article and the extent to which the Western medical system will go in order to make trans activists happy. Babies are vulnerable enough when they’re nuzzled in the breast of their biological mother. It’s unacceptable and abusive for adults to force infants into a situation where they are consuming synthetic-laden “milk” so that a mentally ill man can feel like he is expressing his “gender identity.” A baby’s health should be prioritized over an adult’s feelings, and the fact that we have inverted this is extremely concerning. While this claim about “chestfeeding” has come from the UK, it’s happening here on American soil as well – and it’s probably only going to get worse because there is a vicious mob out there that is hell-bent on turning the world upside down to appease trans activists and trans-identified men who demand that we ignore reality and basic biology.
