On Tuesday, Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed H71, banning the performance of sex change procedures on minors. The legislation prohibits the prescription of puberty-blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries for the purposes of attempting to alter a child’s sex.
Idaho is now the 14th state to take action to restrict these procedures in some capacity.
In response, Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement praising the law:
“It is encouraging to see lawmakers nationwide taking action to protect children from the predatory transgender industry. The vast majority of Americans recognize that children are too young to consent to these procedures, which will have permanent, potentially destructive consequences for their long-term health. It is a massive scandal that such ‘treatments’ are being offered at all, and legislators are fully justified in putting a stop to it.
“We thank Gov. Little and the Idaho legislature for stepping up to protect their state’s families and kids. And we look forward to seeing more states join them in the weeks ahead.”
