Texas bill banning gender procedures, hormone therapy for trans kids sent to governor

Texas lawmakers on Wednesday gave final approval for a bill that would ban gender procedures and therapies for minors, which now heads to the governor’s desk. 

The state Senate voted 19-12 to accept the House version of Senate Bill 14 with a majority of Republican support. The bill now heads to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk, The Texas Tribune reported. 

Senate Bill 14 would prohibit transgender youth from getting puberty blockers and other hormone therapy needed to transition. It would also require those already receiving such care to be “weaned” off in a medically appropriate manner.
