Senate Bill 14, which prohibits transgender people under the age of 18 from receiving hormone therapy and puberty blockers, has been banned by a judge in Texas.

Can Affect Mental Health

The law was passed by Texas lawmakers earlier this year, and it is slated to take effect the following week. However, a group of families and doctors filed a lawsuit against the state this summer in an effort to stop SB 14.

Access to care, according to certain medical organizations, is crucial for patients’ mental health. Advocates for the LGBTQ+ community and trans Texans have called SB 14 one of the most important pieces of legislation passed during this year’s legislative session.

Restrictions On Gender Affirming Medical Treatment

According to SB 14, kids and teenagers who are currently receiving treatment would be “weaned off” in a “medically appropriate” way. Additionally, it prohibits operations connected to the transition, albeit they are rarely done on children. Advocates claimed that obtaining the therapies takes a lot of time and necessitates numerous medical examinations. According to reports, parents are involved in decisions regarding what treatments, if any, are best for certain kids.

On the other hand, individuals who support SB 14 have argued against the science and studies supporting care associated to the transition.The Texas Attorney General’s office was anticipated to file an appeal as soon as possible to allow the bill to go into force. More than 20 states now have laws prohibiting various forms of gender-affirming medical treatment for children.
