Trans people have been under constant attack from the GOP the past few years, from Trump's transgender military ban, to banning gender changes on birth certificates, to banning trans kids from participating in school sports.
In 2022, 280 anti-trans bills have been filed in state legislatures already. Some of this legislation could make it a felony level crime to provide essential life-saving care to transgender youth, all on the basis of anti-LGBTQ fear mongering from conservatives. Medical professionals should not have to decide between providing gender-affirming care and being imprisoned.
Add your name to demand state legislators oppose bills that would insert transphobic views into the medical field!
Transgender youth already face monumental challenges navigating transphobic families, classmates and teachers, and community members. They face bullying, harassment, violence, and high races of suicide. The additional emotional damage and physical harm of a statewide ban on proper medical care cannot be underestimated.
It is our responsibility to protect our children, but instead conservatives are waging war on them. Trans youth need the careful, science-based medical support of their doctors – not bigoted legislators who want to punish their existence!
