Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA) and 10 other GOP lawmakers spoke outside of the U.S. Capitol in Washington on Tuesday to announce their support of a bill forbidding parents from giving their minor children gender transition surgeries.
The bill, the Protect Children’s Innocence Act, would consider gender surgeries a felony with a penalty of up to 25 years in prison or a maximum fine of $250,000. Any doctor who prescribe puberty blockers or hormones to “transgender youth” would also be facing up to 25 years in prison.
The bill has 35 Republican sponsors. Ten of the sponsors were at the event.
“Protecting children from … being fast-tracked into permanent harm to their bodies before they’re old enough to vote, get a tattoo, buy tobacco, join the military, often drive a car, and go see an R-rated movie,” Greene said.
