Republican Legislators in Idaho Want to Put an End to Teenage “Transition” Surgeries

The Idaho “Vulnerable Child Protection Act” is being introduced by two state representatives. Rep. Bruce Skaug (R-Nampa) and Sen. Lori Den Hartog (R-Meridian) introduced legislation to prohibit the use of puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries on children with gender dysphoria.

A number of states, including Utah and others in the past week and last year, have enacted legislation with similar language.

Skaug’s bill was approved by the House of Representatives last year, but it was shot down by the state senate, which is controlled by the Republican party.

Did Idaho make their decision because of what happened in Utah? Restrictions on gender-affirming surgery are not unique to Utah. Although Utah is not alone in its ban on trans surgical procedures.

In 2023, according to The Hill, there will be 20 bills concerning transgender surgeries in nine states. Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Virginia are just some of the states where measures have already been pre-filed for this year.
