Sind Jugendliche in der Lage, alles für sich selbst zu entscheiden?

Die finnische Website enthält dazu folgende Hinweise:

Remember that if someone makes a decision concerning their own medical treatment, they are always doing so within their current life experience. A young person has no way of knowing whether fertility or sexual function will matter to them in adulthood. Most people do want to have fulfilling sex and reproduce, despite often not finding these things interesting as children. Science says that medical transition has a significant impact on these aspects, especially by removing the capacity to reproduce, which is among your fundamental rights and one of the best parts of the lives of many adults, one which can give life as a whole a completely new meaning. Not even sterilizations are performed on adults under 30 for this reason. It is only fair to take such decisions into account from the eyes of an adult themselves.“
