Alarm grows over impact of states banning trans youth treatment

Description (Dublin Core)

Medical experts and LGBT advocates are sounding the alarm over the physical and mental health risks to the transgender community after at least 19 state legislatures, including Arkansas, have proposed or passed bills seeking to ban trans youth treatment.

Proponents of the bills have argued that the legislation is in place to protect children from making irreversible decisions about their bodies.

But earlier this week, doctors and LGBT organizations defended treatments such as puberty blockers and hormone therapy, and warned about a potential increased suicide rate among trans youth if such legislation is enacted.
