What It’s Like to Be on a Puberty Blocker

0

On this week’s edition of the “Problematic Women” podcast, Gloria Taylor joins us to discuss her experience taking a drug that is sometimes used as a puberty blocker for minors: Lupron.

Taylor, a senior communications manager at The Heritage Foundation, started getting injections of Lupron after being diagnosed with breast cancer. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.) She talks about the side effects–which range from depressed feelings to physical pain—and how stunned she was to learn that minors without cancer were being given this same drug.

We also talk about a new Heritage Foundation study that looks at transgender treatment for minors and suicide rates with Marguerite Bowling, a senior communications manager at The Heritage Foundation. And are you having trouble finding tampons at the store? You’re not alone. We’ll talk about the latest crisis in the supply chain shortage. And as always, we crown our problematic woman of the week.
