Louisiana Senate Passes Ban On Transgender Treatments For Minors

  • The Louisiana Senate on Monday approved a ban on some gender-related treatments for minors after a Republican-led committee rejected it in May.
  • The upper chamber approved the plan in a 29-10 vote, sending it back to the state House, where it is expected to pass.
  • “This isn’t complicated. Kids should not have access to permanent medical procedures in order to affirm an identity they might outgrow,” said state Republican Sen. Jeremy Stine.
