AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas House voted today to advance Senate Bill 14, which will ban evidence-based, life-saving health care for transgender adolescents in Texas.
S.B. 14 bans puberty blockers and hormone therapy, which have been used and proven to treat gender dysphoria for decades.
Hundreds of Texans came to the State Capitol on May 2 to oppose the bill banning essential health care for trans youth — and were met with violence and arrests. The All in For Equality coalition condemned the clearing of the Capitol by authorities.
The bill passed the Texas House late Friday evening by a vote of 92 to 48.
