Transgender youth re-emerge as Utah state chamber focal point
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah lawmakers wasted no time this week returning to an issue that has become a hot topic in the GOP-led state chambers: trying to limit the medical options that doctors can provide to transgender youth.
On the second day of the legislative session, a committee began considering a policy that would prevent minors from receiving gender-affirming medical care, including surgery or puberty blockers. They also began considering a proposal to require schools to notify parents when children want to change the pronouns they go by, and another that would limit when transgender people under the age of 18 can change the sex listed on their birth certificates. .
