Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) introduced a bill Friday that would make providing gender-affirming medical care to transgender minors a felony, punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
Greene’s “Protect Children’s Innocence Act” outlaws more than a dozen medical interventions and procedures used to treat gender dysphoria in transgender young people, including puberty blockers, hormone therapy and certain kinds of surgeries done “for the purpose of changing the body of such individual to correspond to a sex that differs from their biological sex.”
The measure would also prohibit using federal funds for gender-affirming health care, including in Affordable Healthcare Act plans.

Awesome news – leave our children alone. Once children are adults, THEN they can make such life-changing and sweeping decisions for themselves.
