Georgia Passes Ban on Child Sex Change

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.7

Georgia legislature recently passed a bill that bans doctors in the state from prescribing sex-change hormones and surgeries for minors diagnosed with gender dysphoria. The bill allows doctors in violation of the law to be sued both civilly and criminally. Included in the bill is the exception that the procedures may only be acceptable if it is deemed “medically necessary.”  One controversial subject in the bill is that it fails to prevent the prescription of puberty blockers, however it is unlikely that most doctors would prescribe them without the availability to put them on cross-sex hormones at age 16.
