In current legislative fights over gender affirming care, it is clear that Republicans only intend to target transgender people. This amendment vote proves it.
Thank you so much for your in depth coverage. I live in Utah and have learned more from you in the past few days that any other source. Please keep it up. I will be contacting my representatives for what it’s worth. Liberal voices don’t carry much weight in this hard right state. I just happen to see your link for the live coverage of the last session yesterday and I saw many brave people standing up for what is right. It was inspiring. So thank you for sharing that.
Thank you Erin.
Bills like this prove it's not about protecting children. It is a targeted attack on an already marginalized group with the ultimate goal of making everyone conform to their strict dogmatic neo- evangelical view. This is not freedom, nor liberty, not even parental rights. It is blatant fascism. Welcome to the fourth reich.
Hmmmmm... the first example this guy thought of was breast implants for minors. And they mean to tell us we're the ones sexualizing children?
Of course they are excluded! Church elders want their teen brides to have ample bosoms when they knock them up.
"If there's grass on the field play ball!
Thanks for keeping us informed even if the bills are terrible and target trans kids. It's clear that it has nothing to do with protectung kids but rather hurting and discriminating against trans kids.
So, they're OK with minors becoming more barbie like, but, not reducing the likelihood of suicide. Typical Republican perverts wanting to turn minors into sex objects, but, couldn't give a shit about mental health. They just can't stop themselves . . .
