On February 28 Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) signed into law House Bill 1125, also known as the “Regulate Experimental Adolescent Procedures (REAP) Act” banning the performance or inducement of gender transition procedures on minors. The bill also prohibits public funding and tax deductions for prohibited gender transition procedures of individuals under 18 years of age. Any healthcare professional found in violation of the new law will have their license revoked. The measure allows for healthcare providers to be sued by former patients within 30 years.
