Hormonal Treatment For Young Transgender Children Banned In Tennesee
Doctors banned from providing gender-confirming hormone treatment to prepubescent minors in Tennessee.
SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Tennessee's governor signed a bill into law stripping minors of the option to receive gender-affirming treatment.

The measure prevents health care providers from giving any hormone treatments to kids who haven't hit puberty yet.

Arkansas was the first and only other state to pass similar legislation which totally bans this treatment for minors.
