Texas has become the latest state to ban puberty blockers and hormone therapy as well as other “trans” medical interventions for children.
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill last week banning various types of “trans” medical interventions for children, including the likes of hormone therapy and puberty blockers.
Texas is one of many U.S. states to ban medical transgenderism for children, with Reuters reporting that around 20 states have now blocked such treatments for children.
According to a report by Fox 26, the legislation will prohibit the administration of such treatments to minors in the state. Children who have already been on such transgender treatments for some time will be allowed to continue taking the drugs for a short period, with the legislation allowing time for medics to “wean [children] off the prescription drug”. The legislation also bans transgender surgeries for children.
