The Trevor Project Responds to the Trump Admin’s Undermining of Health Care Protections for Trans People
The Administration’s new 1557 rule seeks to roll back health care nondiscrimination protections for transgender and nonbinary people under the Affordable Care Act.
Last night, Idaho became the first state in 2020 to pass an anti-transgender bill through both chambers of its state legislature. The bill, HB 500, would be the first in the nation to restrict transgender women and girls from playing on college and high school sports teams that correspond with their gender identity.
South Dakota legislators recently proposed HB 1057, a bill that would criminalize medical care for any transgender patient under the age of 18, even when such care is deemed medically necessary and has the consent of the patient’s parents. The proposed legislation goes against medical care best practices for transgender youth, which are backed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and other leading medical authorities.
