Alex Pratt started this petition to Kansas House of Representatives and

If you don't know, HB2210 was introduced in the house on Wednesday, February 3rd. This bill would make it a level 8 felony for doctors and physicians to prescribe puberty blockers, testosterone to females, estrogen to males, or even to perform surgeries that sterilize, alter or remove body parts on transgender kids under the age of 18.

The House bill now has to go through a committee for discussion, and be voted on.

As much as I wish that I had something personal to say about this, I don't. I am not trans, but I do have transgender friends who transitioned during high school, and who this would have effected had it been passed back then. This legislation is completely and morally out of place. As I have established in previous posts, gender transition has a positive effect on transgender individuals. There are studies that even show for transgender youth specifically that transitioning has helped improve their mental health and dysphoria. So when I tell you that signing this into law and taking away those opportunities for people is a death threat, that's exactly what it is, point blank period.

I've linked a petition below to ask the House to vote NO on the legislation, and I would implore you to sign it if you are looking to make a change quickly. However, if you have more time on your hands, I would really encourage you to look at the roster linked below of members of the House, find the members for your district, and email/call them about this issue as well. We need to make sure this does not get passed, for the safety of all transitioning children and individuals in Kansas.
