SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah lawmaker opened a new bill that would punish doctors who give transgender-related medical care to minors.
Rep. Rex Shipp, R-Cedar City, is sponsoring the new bill.
Shipp told KSL NewsRadio that the bill “Prohibits surgery — top or bottom surgery. Prohibits cross-sex hormones, and also puberty blockers.”
This marks the second transgender-related bill introduced the month before the legislative session starts.
