Repealing the law banning gender-affirming care for trans youth HB 1570. The bill banning gender-affirming care for trans youths is in total contradiction of human rights. Any citizen has the right to decide the gender they are most comfortable with. Youths are not an exclusion; they have rights in their capacity to choose which side of the coin they should be identified with. Nature cannot be changed at inception but can be adjusted at will as individuals grow. It is not an individual’s fault to be born either male or female as they have no right to decide over that. However, with scientific innovations in the medical field, they can change their gender identity. Psychological peace and comfort on matters of gender should be an absolute priority for human life.
With this law came several severe consequences for the youths who had embraced the transgender narrative. Suicide cases among children about this law have been reported in various hospitals across the state. Also, there have been dire psychological consequences among these youths. Suicidal thoughts related to depression have also been on the rise. It will be unfair to treat these youths who feel uncomfortable with their gender unfairly. It is also prejudicial to decide on behalf of the children on which side of the gender they should be identified to. Therefore, the repeal of this law should be treated with utmost care as it is a fragile case to handle. Human life should be prioritized because laws are created for humanity, not for statutes. Therefore, it is necessary to repeal the law on health access for transgender youths.
