The Decline of WPATH

WPATH is losing members while other countries are losing passion for the chemical and surgical altering of minors.

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) is one of the leading medical associations pushing for the chemical and surgical “gender transition” of minors. In just the last year, WPATH has witnessed a dramatic drop in membership.  

In January 2023, WPATH had over 4,000 global members, including over 3,000 in the United States. As of this month, membership is down to just under 1,600, a 60% drop in membership. U.S. members make up 80% of that number. 

At the same time, more and more European countries are slowing down the push for “gender transition” interventions, mostly because there is no compelling research that such interventions lead to long-term health. In fact, those who pursue chemical and surgical transition are more likely to commit suicide, not less.  

Still, the U.S. government continues to push, and organizations like WPATH continue to proclaim, so-called “gender-affirming care” as gospel truth instead of what it is: the ideologically driven destruction of minors. Christians must not sit this one out. Too much is at stake.
