The tide is turning on profit driven “gender-affirming care.”
Thirteen “youth gender clinics” within university hospitals across America may face closure by years-end due to state legislation restricting gender transition procedures on children.
We can say with confidence that Ochsner and Children’s Hospital in N.O. are (or were) providing “gender affirming care” to children, and Planned Parenthood has pivoted its “business” model to include hormone blockers.
Texas just became the 20th state to ban the removal of healthy organs or hormone injections for children experiencing confusion regarding their biological sex. Some university youth gender clinics have already scaled back their operations in response to these state laws.
So far: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia have moved to stop medical madness.
Louisiana is not on that list...yet! We did pass HB648, The Stop Harming Children act in the 2023 Legislative Session which bans chemical & surgical castration of children. Gov. Edwards has pledged to veto it.
We are hopeful Governor Edwards reconsiders; either way, a veto override session is expected. No one has the right to harm a child!
