This "omnibus anti-trans bill" denies gender affirming care, including social supports, to transgender youth and criminalizes providers who offer such care to their patients. The claims in this bill are not based in medical fact - it has been proven time and again that social acceptance prevents suicide in transgender youth. The bill also gives Kentucky courts personal jurisdiction over any out of state providers who offer care to a minor who resides in Kentucky.
