This essentially seems to be a small scale form of eugenic treatment. That's always been a constant concern of mine.
In the one case they detailed, I don't think it was intended as eugenics. I think in that case, the 18 year old son had an unusually high level of testosterone and the Lupron reduced it.
My female cousin took Lupron as a shot in her buttocks when she was a teenager because she had really bad endometriosis and it stopped her periods for a while, which is a treatment for endometrosis. I think in any given case, you need to balance the benefits against the risks. In my cousin's case, I think the treatment helped because she was able to have two sons later when she got married.
