Transgender Treatment Minors

Transgender Treatment Minors

Quinncy Parke, 17, testifies to the South Dakota House State Affairs committee against a bill that would make it illegal for doctors to give gender-change treatment to children under 16, during a hearing Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020 in Pierre, S.D. The South Dakota House committee passed a bill that would allow for the prosecution of physicians who help children under age 16 to change their gender. The bill would make it a Class 1 misdemeanor for medical providers in the state to perform surgeries, administer puberty-blocking medication or hormone therapy drugs to minors to change their gender. Nurses and other non-licensed medical practitioners would be exempt from prosecution. (AP Photo/Stephen Groves)
