First, some news from the AP: A federal judge on Friday blocked part of an Alabama law that made it a felony to prescribe gender-affirming puberty blockers and hormones to transgender minors:

The Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act made it a felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, to prescribe or administer gender-affirming medication to transgender minors to help affirm their new gender identity. The judge left in place another part of the law that banned gender-affirming surgeries for transgender minors, which doctors had testified are not done on minors in Alabama. He also left in place a provision that requires counselors and other school officials to tell parents if a minor discloses that they think they are transgender.

So the ban on gender-affirming surgeries for minors stays in place. Libs of TikTok has found a surgeon who does these sorts of surgeries, and he suggests they might not be necessary if minors were given earlier treatment, such as puberty blockers and hormone therapy.

As Twitchy reported, President Joe Biden shot a video about gender-affirming actions supported by the administration as part of his Transgender Day of Visibility event, and Jen Psaki reiterated that gender-affirming medical care can be life-saving.

The federal judge in Alabama seems to buy into the reasoning … go ahead and give minors puberty blockers and hormones, but surgery is a step too far. But if we’d just give them the puberty blockers early enough, they wouldn’t have breasts to remove.
