Stop Politicians From Interfering in Medical Care for Trans Youth

Home/Take Action/Stop Politicians From Interfering in Medical Care for Trans Youth

Tell the House Health Committee that parents, patients and doctors — not politicians — should decide what medical care is in the best interest of any particular young person.

The House Health Committee will take up this bill on Wednesday, April 7 at 2 p.m.
(Last updated April 6, 2021. Check current bill status here.)

SB 657/HB 578 is another discriminatory effort by the legislature to target and erase trans youth. This bill would ban medical therapy for prepubescent minors to support their transition. “Therapy” is defined broadly by the bill, suggesting doctors and parents could be criminalized for everything from surgery to consultation. Healthcare for trans kids is not child abuse, and legislators have no business inserting themselves into family medical care.

Please call or email the following House Health Committee members and urge them to vote NO on SB 657/HB 578.
