Ban Gender Modification of Children

Priority:    Texas must ban chemical castration, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, genital mutilation, bodily alteration surgery, psychological/social transitioning, and any other methods applied to or performed on children. Sub-Committee Chair Jill Glover

Report: Regarding the protection of children, banning Child Gender Mutilation has been a top priority two sessions in a row.  This session, thanks to Senator Donna Campbell and Representative Tom Oliverson, SB 14 was passed prohibiting medical providers from practices that attempt to change a child’s physical characteristics to approximate the opposite sex.  Medical providers will lose their license if they violate this law.


Ban Gender Modification of Children Updates


May 12, SB14 (Ban Gender Modification of Children) passed its second vote in the House! It will now go on to its third reading, which is a matter of procedure.
It now appears as though Child Gender Modification will be banned in Texas. There is amended language that will make this effective immediately, once the bill formally becomes law.
There is hope, in that several Democrat Representatives voted with Republicans to ban the gender modification of children in Texas.
We want to thank everybody that had a part in supporting SB 14 and HB 1686. The Grassroots Movement made their voice heard. Thank you to those who made phone calls, sent emails, posted on social media, and made their presence known at the state capitol. We are grateful to conservative media that covered this cause in an effort to inform the people. Your efforts made a difference.

Let’s continue to lean forward and push hard as we power through the remainder of this 88th legislative session. Glory to God and Texas.
