well, let’s see:
What do they mean by sterilizing kids?
There’s different things for different ages.
a) They rarely allow surgery until 17+ – and that’s extremely uncommon under rare circumstances even then.
So anybody believing they’re putting a knife to prepubescent children is simply incorrect. Not even an exception to highlight. If there was, they would be using it. There’s zero.
b) If they mean the drug for precocious puberty, they’ve been using that drug for 50+ years and it works. It’s a common problem and a common solution. Different reason for delaying puberty but it’s no different otherwise and it’s still nearly exclusively used for its original purpose.
c) If it’s hormone replacement therapy, that doesn’;t usually start until 17+ if I remember right – which is the earliest age that they’ll consider surgery.
So when is the sterilization?
The only thing that might qualify is the drug to delay puberty; and that’s not sterilization.
Does that address the sterilization concerns?
