New research: Transgenders have dramatically higher suicide rates

WND.com reports: “A new, large-scale Danish study finds ‘transgender individuals had significantly higher rates’ of suicide attempts, suicide deaths, non-suicidal deaths, and ‘all-cause mortality’ compared to non-transgender people.

The study, published in the June 27 Journal of the American Medical Association, or JAMA, examined non-immigrants older than 15 who lived in Denmark between Jan. 1, 1980 and Dec. 31, 2021, a total of 42 years of observation. It looked at hospital data and Civil Registry records of people changing their ‘gender’ to identify ‘transgender’ people and compare them with other citizens.

The New York Times reported June 27: ‘Transgender people in the country had 7.7 times the rate of suicide attempts and 3.5 times the rate of suicide deaths compared with the rest of the population, according to the records analyzed in the study, though suicide rates in all groups decreased over time. And transgender people in Denmark died – by suicide or other causes – at younger ages than others.’…”
