Amazon has stopped selling books that frame transgender and other gender and sexual identities as mental illnesses. The company explained its decision in a letter to a group of lawmakers, who had questioned why Amazon removed the book “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment.”

Republican Senators Marco Rubio of Florida, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Mike Braun of Indiana and Mike Lee of Utah wrote a letter to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos in February asking why Amazon had removed the book, according to The Wall Street Journal.
