New study: People who undergo transgender surgery are 12 times more likely to commit suicide

A comprehensive new study provides unequivocal evidence that those who undergo so-called "gender reassignment" surgery put themselves at a vastly increased risk of suicide - an astounding 12 times that of the general population.

The giant study, "involving 56 United States healthcare organizations and over 90 million patients," analyzed data collected over a 20-year period, from February 2003 to February 2023, examining "suicide attempts, death, self-harm, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) within five years of the index event."

The researchers compared the experiences of persons aged 18-60 who visited hospital emergency rooms who had previously undergone "transition" surgery with those who visited emergency rooms without having undergone transgender surgery: A stunning 3.47 percent of those who had surgically "transitioned" were treated for suicide attempts, versus 0.29 percent for non-"transitioned" patients.

The study's major finding: "Individuals who underwent gender-affirming [sic] surgery had a 12.12-fold higher suicide attempt risk than those who did not."
