A new bill in Texas seeks to protect children from getting sex change procedures that they may regret later in life by criminalizing parents who do so.
Obtaining these treatments for children would be considered child abuse under the legislation.
The Texas Senate Committee on State Affairs held a hearing over the bill on Monday.
“Children are unable to give informed consent. This bill gives children a chance to get to adulthood with intact bodies,” Republican Executive Committee Member Jill Glover testified.
