America’s Largest Children’s Hospital to Stop All Transgender Procedures Against Minors
The largest children’s hospital in the United States has announced it will end transgender procedures and drug treatments for minors over the next few weeks in light of a new state law that bans such procedures.
Mark Wallace, CEO of Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, said in a memo to staff this week that the change was prompted by the state Legislature’s passage of Senate Bill 14, according to Texas Public Media.
The new law, which is scheduled to take effect Sept. 1, bans “procedures and treatments for gender transitioning, gender reassignment, or gender dysphoria and on the use of public money or public assistance to provide those procedures and treatments.”
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has said he will sign the legislation, according to KDFW-TV.
“A person under 18, they don’t have the mental capacity to make a life-changing decision,” the Republican governor said.
