Support the passage of this bill !!! The possibility of a for profit hospital or doctors pushing treatments for profit on children is troubling. Experimenting on children that need education, need mental health treatment or just a crazed parent that wants a different sex than the child they got. Children should be protected! In Missouri we don't allow the purchase of tobacco under the age of 21, purchase of alcohol under the age of 21, age of consent is 17, cant enter into a contract under 18 but some want to perform sterilization or sex change surgeries or prescribe life changing medications to children on as young as 11 years old! There is not a child that fully comprehends medical decisions that will effect the rest of their lives below the age of 18. I would highly suggest limiting the to 24.Why would anyone support removing breast, penis or sterilizing a minor? Its amazing that some believe that this is ok. Either you stand for this or you are promoting a sick twisted woke agenda and using minor children to do it. I would suspect that objectors to this bill also support Auschwitz experiments on children as well. When you stand before your creator how will you answer the question? He created a life and you supported to alter his creation because you thought you were a god and knew better than him.

I believe that everyone should have access to the healthcare that they need or want. NO ONE, except medical professionals and the people involved should have any say in it. Get the government out of our health care and our bedrooms. These issues and decisions are challenging enough for the people going through it, leave them alone.

I strongly support this bill, to defend our teens from harmful and irreversible hormonal and surgical changes to their natural bodies before or during puberty. Many who have experienced these methods and procedures in their youth, are now speaking up with deep regret as adults. These experimental life altering and irreversible treatments have not proven to resolve, or even help heal the psychological reasons that seem to trouble those who are engaged by them. The unethical imposition of irreversible hormonal and surgical experimentation on our youth is worse than the wrong solution, it's another level of abusive harms to them! Please support this bill to stop the mutilation of our youth in gross exploitation of their temporary confusions. They will thank us later, and we will all be glad we did!

SB 49 is a hateful and dangerous bill that would take away the opportunity for transgender youth to access gender-affirming, lifesaving, medically necessary healthcare.
Molly Dillon wrote 2 weeks ago

This is not acceptable. No gender affirming care is experimentation, it is medical care. The individuals proposing this bill have no care or concern for young people who want to live their lives more authentically. Gender affirming care reduces suicidality in non binary and trans folks. No medical professional provides this care without following WPATH standards and guidelines as well.
