Idaho House Passes Discriminatory Bill to Criminalize Gender Affirming Care for Transgender Youth

HRC by Elizabeth Bibi on March 8, 2022

The Idaho House approved legislation today that makes it a felony for a doctor to provide age-appropriate, medically-necessary, best practice gender affirming care for transgender children. H.675 now heads to the Idaho Senate for further consideration.

Human Rights Campaign State Legislative Director and Senior Counsel Cathryn Oakley issued the following statement:

“It is so disappointing that some politicians in Boise have decided to follow Texas and Alabama down the path of imposing felony criminal penalties upon doctors who are simply doing their jobs. By making it impossible for doctors to provide care for their patients, transgender youth are denied the age-appropriate, best practice, medically-necessary, gender-affirming care that a new study just found reduces the risk of moderate or severe depression by 60% and suicide by 73%.”
“When you’re ready, start living your truth. That’s when the magic happens.”

Sounds like there needs to be human rights violation charges pressed against the State of Idaho. 😡
