Australian Doctor Reprimanded for Prescribing ‘Chemical Castration’ to Gay Teen to ‘Cure’ Him

Mark Craddock, a doctor in Sydney Australia has been “found guilty of unsatisfactory processional conduct” and  reprimanded after prescribing a  “chemical castration” treatment to a gay teen in order to “cure”

AFP reports:

Both  men were at the time members of the Exclusive Brethren, a  conservative  Christian group whose members shun television, radio, and  the Internet and do  not vote.

In a letter of complaint to the  commission, the  patient wrote that he came out as gay at the age of 18  and was informed by a  church leader, “There’s medication you can go on  for these things.”

The patient then consulted Craddock.

The  commission argued that during the  consultation the doctor did not  provide appropriate medical management of the  patient’s needs by failing to physically examine him or take a medical  history.

He also failed to refer him to a counsellor or  psychologist.

Craddock instead prescribed cyprostat, a drug  used to treat prostate cancer and  manage sexual deviation by reducing  testosterone, in circumstances which were not clinically indicated, the  commission alleged.

According to a Back2Stonewall.com source Craddock’s medical license wasn’t revoked because he’s a radiologists and Australia has been  suffering from a huge shortage of them for several years now.

This is EXACTLY why we all have to keep a very keen eye on religious fundamentalists not only here but worldwide, worldwide.  What they really want is to destroy and eliminate us. All in the name of  “God”.
