Oppose harmful healthcare bans targeting trans youth

To: Gov. Hobbs

From: A verified voter in Tucson, AZ

June 29

Healthcare bans on gender-affirming care go against professional and scientific consensus that this care saves lives. Denying access to such care will cause harm to vulnerable individuals. This bill threatens healthcare providers with criminal charges for providing essential gender-affirming treatment. It also threatens parents with child abuse charges for supporting their transgender children, while typically exempting procedures on intersex infants from the restrictions. This contradicts medical ethics and human rights principles. I urge you to oppose this harmful bill that will endanger the wellbeing and lives of your constituents. For a visual representation of the widespread impact of these discriminatory bans, the Movement Advancement Project provides an informative interactive map.
