Mississippi bans sex change treatments for minors

Children and adolescents may not undergo hormone treatments or surgery in the state.

Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves has signed in a law banning sex change treatments for minors in the state. The regulation will prohibit children and adolescents from receiving hormone treatments or undergoing surgery.

"Not now, not ever" in Mississippi

The governor later insisted on his Twitter profile on his commitment against the Woke agenda. "In a world that is upside down when it comes to doing the right thing for children, Mississippi will fight once again to keep our state right side up," he stressed.

In a press release, Reeves expressed his strong rejection of such interventions, and assured that they have no place in Mississippi "not now, not ever."

There are two positions here. One tells children that they’re beautiful the way they are. That they can find happiness in their own bodies. The other tells them that they should take drugs and cut themselves up with expensive surgeries in order to find freedom from depression. I know which side I’m on.

Sex change without public funding

The Regulate Experimental Adolescent Procedures Act (REAP) will not allow state funds or Medicaid to cover this type of treatment for minors. In addition, it requires the Mississippi State Medical Licensing Board to enforce the rule.

Following the signing of the rule, Mississippi joins other states such as Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, South Dakota, Florida, Tennessee, Texas and Utah in protecting minors from woke treatments.
