State GOPs Attack Trans Rights, Barring Access to Healthcare, Participation in Sports

HeadlineMar 03, 2021

State Republicans around the country are ramping up the legislative attack on transgender rights. The Alabama Senate voted Tuesday to pass a bill that would make it a felony to provide gender-affirming care to trans youth. The bill now goes to the House. Meanwhile, Tennessee, Wisconsin and North Dakota are just some of the states where Republicans are pushing bans on transgender students taking part in sports, with the bill likely to pass this week in Tennessee. Wisconsin’s Democratic Governor Tony Evers is expected to block such an effort in his state.
