Ladinsky v. Ivey
Gender-affirming care is necessary, lifesaving care. We’re suing to stop Alabama’s criminalization of healthcare for transgender youth.
On April 8, 2022, Governor Kay Ivey signed SB 184 into law. The bill punishes parents for making important decisions about their children’s healthcare and doctors for providing – or even suggesting – well-established medically necessary care. The punishment can include up to 10 years in prison.
The same day, GLAD, along with the National Center for Transgender Rights, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Human Rights Campaign filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of two Alabama families and two medical providers.
SB 184 is an appalling attack on transgender youth, their families, and medical providers. It will not hold up in court.
