Ending Child Gender Modification
I am proud to have co-authored Senate Bill 14 which will protect Texas children from medically unnecessary, life-altering, irreversible gender modification treatments. This bill requires the Texas Medical Board to revoke the license of a physician who provides prohibited gender transitioning medical interventions to a child under 18.
SB 14 also prohibits the use of public funds to pay for the performance of gender transitioning medical interventions on children or to support any provider, hospital, medical school, or other entity that provides or facilitates the performance of prohibited interventions.
The testimony heard in the Senate Committee on State Affairs reaffirmed the need for this legislation and the urgency required to protect Texas children. We are deeply grateful to Senator Donna Campbell for authoring this crucial piece of legislation.
