Please Support SB 480 on Gender Transition Procedures for Minors
April 24, 2023
Gender transition procedures (GTP) imperil already at-risk gender dysphoric youth with experimental and unproven hormonal and surgical gender procedures, which medicalize prematurely and permanently. Transition procedures are not proven effective, not proven safe, does not reduce suicides, and are not the standard of care for gender dysphoria. Comprehensive literature reviews are driving an international pushback against GTP in favor of intensive psychological evaluation and support, and the lawsuits over the harms of transition affirming interventions have begun. GTPs are out of step with evidence-based care for gender dysphoric youth.
