Government health agency claims drug-induced 'trans-women's milk' just as healthy for babies as breast milk

A British government health agency declared that drug-induced milk from "trans-women" – which would be biological males – is just as healthy for babies as breast milk from a female mother, according to a leaked letter.

The Telegraph reported on Sunday, "In a letter to campaigners, the University of Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust (USHT), said that the milk produced by trans women after taking a combination of drugs is 'comparable to that produced following the birth of a baby.'"

The health officials from U.K.'s National Health Service argued in the letter that "there is clear and overwhelming evidence that human milk is the ideal food for infants," referring to a mother's milk and the drug-induced lactation from biological men who transitioned.

The medical director claimed, "The evidence which is available demonstrates that the milk is comparable to that produced following the birth of a baby."

According to the Daily Mail, "Lactation happens naturally after birth when a hormone called prolactin kicks in and stimulates milk-producing 'alveolar' cells."

"The same combination of drugs can be given to a biological male, who first needs to grow breast tissue capable of lactation," the outlet added. "This requires them to take testosterone suppressants along with oestrogen and progesterone hormone treatment. Once there is enough breast tissue, the brain must be stimulated to produce prolactin, which can be done by giving domperidone or metoclopramide."

The claims about drug-induced 'trans-women's milk' by the NHS organization stirred emotions online.

Blaze Media host Allie Beth Stuckey: "The natural progression of 'fed is best,' which always put the emphasis on the mom instead of the baby. No, fed is bare minimum. What’s best is the most nutritious option available. For most, that will be breastmilk. For some, that truly will be formula. But in absolutely ZERO circumstances is artificially induced, hormone-laced moob juice from a fetishist the best option for babies. In fact, it’s abuse."

Columnist Nana Akua: "There is no way that hormone-filled milk from a trans-woman is as good for a baby as the real thing. Ridiculous! A baby is not a prop."

TV anchor Julia Hartley-Brewer: "Any parent's first instinct should be to put the needs of their newborn baby before their own. Any man who wants to pretend he's a mother who can breastfeed is putting his own desires above the health of his baby. The NHS should not promote this."

Actor Matthew Marsden: "We deserve the asteroid. This stops when you decide it stops."

Reclaim Party leader Laurence Fox: "End times."

Author Peter Whittle: "The war against nature."

Lottie Moore – head of biology matters at the Policy Exchange think tank – proclaimed, "This letter is unbalanced and naïve in its assertion that the secretions produced by a male on hormones can nourish an infant in the way a mother's breast milk can. A child's welfare must always take precedence over identity politics and contested belief systems that are not evidence-based. The NHS should not be indulging in this nonsense. It is compromising women's rights and child safeguarding."

In February 2021, the University of Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust was one of the first health agencies to institute a "gender-inclusive language policy" for neonatal services.

The guidelines changed the "maternity" department to "perinatal services" It advised health care professionals to use "milk from the feeding mother or parent," "human milk," or "chest milk" instead of "breast milk." Instead of "mothers," the agency stated that patients should be referred to as "mothers or birthing parents."

In recent years, some professionals in the medical community have been attempting to alter the verbiage to terms they have deemed to be more "inclusive" toward the transgender community. There has been a push by some neonatal doctors to switch from the traditional term of "breastfeeding" to "chestfeeding" or "lactation."

The University of Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust operates the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Worthing Hospital, Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, and others.
