Florida medical board votes to ban gender-affirming care for transgender minors

Transprejudice sadly wins in Florida with the Florida Board of Medicine voting to draft a rule that will ban all minors in the state from receiving transgender-related treatment, including puberty blockers, hormone therapy or surgeries as treatment for gender dysphoria.

With this move, Florida’s medical board becomes the first in the country to pursue such a rule.

The vote is the latest development in the effort led by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis to restrict transition-related care for people under 18. In April, as an example, DeSantis and Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo issued nonbinding guidance through the Florida Health Department that sought to ban both “social gender transition” and gender-affirming medical care for minors.

This backward move from supposed medical experts in Florida contradicts those of the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Psychological Association, which support gender-affirming care for transgender youths.
