Indiana’s governor has signed a bill banning all gender-affirming care for minors.

The Hoosier State joins at least 12 others with laws restricting or outright banning the care.

Governor Holcomb signed the bill on Wednesday, a day after he said it had arrived on his desk but was vague. The law goes into effect July 1, and any trans youth that are currently taking medication for transition would have until the end of 2023 to stop taking it.

Lawmakers also banned gender-transition surgeries for Indiana minors, although hospital prepresentatives say doctors do not perform such surgeries or provide referrals. soq

Then we have the ACLU trying to defend militating kids. Previously mutilated kids are now realizing they were lied to and cannot reverse what happened to them under the authority of their parents. Holy Scripture and our own scientific inquiries over the centuries tells us “He created them male and female.” Gender affirming care equals mutilation. Abortion is not health care it is death care.

I’m awoke.. government has No right to tell me what I can do with my body, nor my children’s. GOD doesn’t make mistakes. How can you tell someone they are a girl when they have absolutely no female hormones and has always felt male. AGAIN. GOD doesn’t make mistakes. Play politics. But stay out of my home life. If I don’t want a baby, there is a reason why. I have the right to safe abortion care. NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS
