On February 13th, the Colorado Bill HB20-1114 "Protect Minors From Mutilation And Sterilization" will be heard by the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee. The language in this proposed bill threatens doctors with a felony sentence for providing life-saving care like puberty blockers to transgender youth.
Being a kid is hard enough. We don’t need politicians making it even harder for kids who are transgender; denying them best practice medical care. Will you take a minute to call or email the Chair of this committee today to tell him that you oppose this bill? Here's the contact info and a sample of what you can say.
Chair of State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee
Transgender youth are some of the most at risk in our community. Medical professionals, not politicians, should decide what medical care is in the best interest of a patient. Forcing a doctor to deny best practice medical care and deny support to transgender youth can be life-threatening. As a constituent of Colorado, I strongly opposes HB20-1114.
