Resistbot Petition: Protect Texan families, children, and medical professionals! (Texas only)

An open letter to State Governors & Legislatures (Texas only)

Protect Texan families, children, and medical professionals!

116 so far! Help us get to 250 signers!

Regarding the recent opinion by AG Ken Paxton and directive from Gov. Greg Abbott on transgender children: This attack on children and their parents is heinous. Gender-affirming surgeries for transgender individuals are not recommended or performed until adulthood/maturity, so what is actually under attack is the use of puberty blockers. Puberty blockers are a temporary solution to childhood gender dysphoria that can be easily reversed, unlike gender-affirming surgeries. Puberty blockers are also prescribed to cisgender children who begin puberty at an age that may cause them distress. This ill informed directive aimed at gathering anti-trans support before the upcoming election will put the wellbeing of thousands of Texan children, families, and scientifically-backed medical professionals at risk. Not to mention that this will also increase false reports of child abuse among parents of trans children who are on puberty blockers and/or who have socially (not physically) transitioned, which will take away from investigations into actual child abuse. This is disappointing for a state that claims to value family and individual freedoms.
