Protect transgender youth and prevent the passage of the VCCPA

The Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act would make it illegal for individuals under the age of 19 to receive life saving gender affirmation treatments in Alabama. Neglecting to adhere to it would result in being charged with a Class C felony. It will also protect therapists and school counselors who out transgender children to their families, which is a gross violation of the confidentiality standards that these people are held to. 

The treatments that transgender youth receive is a matter only between them, their family, and their doctors. Puberty blockers, which are entirely reversible and aren't exclusively administered to transgender youth, will be banned under this. Shelnutt, a sponsor of VCCPA, states that he wishes to ban treatments with irreversible consequences. Alongside many other outdated statistics and false claims made by him and other sponsors, it is clear that they lack education on this topic. 

The Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act does not protect children nor show them compassion. All it does is bar trans youth from receiving necessary treatments.
