State Department Pushes ‘Gender Transition’ For Kids As States Mull Bans

  • The U.S. State Department’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Strategic Plan has sparked controversy for including taxpayer-funded “gender transition care” for employees and their children.
  • The policy comes as some states have begun banning those very same transgender surgeries and drugs from use on children, labeling them “child abuse.”
  • “The State Department might not just be paying for their employee’s kids to receive these damaging surgeries, they’re penalizing foreign service officers who disagree and pressuring countries to perform these procedures on children,” U.S. Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., told the Free Beacon.
