AL Ban on Gender Transition Drugs and Surgery for Children Begins

Alabama Leads The Charge In Fight To Protect Children From Leftist Insanity

(TruthandLiberty.com) – America is undergoing a debate about gender orientation issues and minors. In Florida, a new law prohibiting schools from teaching kindergartners through third graders about gender identity issues exploded into controversy. On Monday, May 9, a new Alabama law made it illegal for health care providers to give puberty blockers, hormone treatments, or gender transition surgeries to anyone under 19 years of age. Still, doctors, families of transgender minors, and transgender activists are challenging the Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act (VCCPA) in federal court.

In April, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed the VCCPA into law. If a medical professional prescribes puberty blockers, hormone medications, or performs a transition surgery on a minor, they could face up to ten years in prison for breaking the law. During the signing of the legislation, Ivey said Alabama would protect its children and not allow liberals like White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and President Joe Biden to tell the state what it could and could not do. The Alabama governor said the state would defend its values and ensure responsible adults help develop children into the adults God intended.

In addition to the VCCPA, Ivey also signed legislation making it illegal for schools to discuss sexual orientation for K-5 grades in Alabama public schools.
