HRC Equality Votes PAC Statement on Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Ignoring Medical Consensus on Health Care for Trans Youth

by Laurel Powell

In another instance of ignoring overwhelming medical evidence, RFK Jr. attacks life-saving health care for trans youth in a craven attempt to boost his polling

In response to a recent post from presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on X (formerly Twitter) attacking health care for transgender youth, Human Rights Campaign spokesperson Laurel Powell issued the following statement:

It’s not surprising Mr. Kennedy has taken a break from spreading conspiracy theories about vaccination to ignore the medical consensus on health care for transgender youth. Despite his attempts at independence, Mr. Kennedy is falling in line with MAGA Republicans and the far-right by peddling dangerous attacks on LGBTQ+ people, claiming he knows better than parents and doctors. It’s clear Mr. Kennedy is a direct threat to transgender people and the health care they need and deserve.
