Statement on Alabama Gov. Signing Bill Criminalizing Healthcare for Trans Youth
By signing SB 184 Governor Ivey is punishing loving, supportive parents of transgender children in Alabama and threatening doctors for providing – or even suggesting – care that those children need. That punishment can include up to 10 years in prison. GLAD will file suit with the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and Human Rights Campaign (HRC) to stop this extremely dangerous law. This is staggering government overreach and it will not hold up before a legal challenge.
