(VIDEO) One of the Nation’s Worst Anti-Trans Medical Care Bans Has Been Defeated

A ban on gender-affirming treatments for transgender youth has been defeated in the Alabama House, preventing the passage of 2021’s most extreme anti-trans bills

A ban on gender-affirming treatments for transgender youth has been defeated in the Alabama House, preventing the passage of 2021’s most extreme anti-trans bills. On Monday night, Alabama lawmakers were set to vote on Senate Bill 10, which sought to prohibit doctors from providing treatments like hormones and puberty blockers to individuals under the age of 19. SB 10 was one of nearly a dozen bills scheduled for debate on the last day of session, and the legislation was the last on the docket. House Democrats ran the clock out on the evening’s hearings, forcing the legislature to adjourn at 11 p.m. before SB 10 could come up for a vote. Barring an unforeseen legislative maneuver, such as calling a special session, the proposal is likely shelved for the remainder of the year.
