Republican state legislators have decided they are qualified to make health care decisions for Georgians under 18 who identify as transgender!
Republican legislators have decided to ban most gender-confirming surgeries and hormone replacement therapies for people under 18, even though more than a dozen studies of more than 30,000 transgender and gender-diverse young people show that access to gender-affirming care is associated with better mental health outcomes and that lack of such access to such care is associated with higher rates of suicidality, depression and self-harming behavior.
Congratulations to our new, self-declared experts in health care for transgender youth!
These same legislators have already decided they are qualified to make health care decisions for women.
We males can look forward to learning what health care decisions these experts will make for us.
A friendly tip: Get your vasectomy now!
How fortunate to have these experts in health care ready, willing and able to make our health care decisions!
