The parents of an autistic teen in England say they were threatened that their son would be removed from their custody following their objections about giving him puberty blockers.

According to the Daily Mail Saturday, the parents of the teen, who spoke to the outlet on condition of anonymity, feared the potential side-effects of the drugs, and stopped him from going to a gender clinic as they suspected his sudden decision to pursue gender transition was due to his autism.

Doctors at the National Health Service clinic had recommended he take puberty blockers to suppress his puberty after he declared that he was female.
