Texas GOP Votes to Halt Gender-Affirming Care for Existing Patients

Democratic State Sen. José Menéndez and Republican State Sen. Donna CampbellTexas Republicans on Monday backtracked and voted in opposition to a measure they had previously supported. Instead of allowing transgender kids who already receive gender-affirming care, specifically medications like puberty blockers, to continue accessing their life-saving medical treatments after a new law that will outlaw care for all minors in the state goes into effect, state senators voted to deny kids their care.
