Families, doctors urge Alabama to reject trans treatment ban
Parents, medical providers and transgender youth have spoken against legislation that would ban puberty-blockers or hormones used for treatment of transgender youth.
They urged the Alabama House of Representatives to reject the bill in a virtual press conference hosted by the Human Rights Campaign.
It would make it a felony for a doctor to provide treatment to aid in gender transition for people 18 years old or younger, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
The Alabama Senate has already passed the bill.
