Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed legislation Thursday banning the use of cross-sex hormones and surgeries for minors for the purpose of gender transitions.
The bill’s passage comes amid a push back from republican states to restrict child gender transitions, though the Georgia bill does not restrict puberty blockers.
“Today, I signed SB 140 into law to ensure we protect the health and wellbeing of Georgia’s children,” Kemp wrote. “I appreciate the many hours of respectful debate and deliberation by members of the General Assembly that resulted in final passage of this bill. As Georgians, parents, and elected leaders, it is our highest responsibility to safeguard the bright, promising futures of our kids — and SB 140 takes an important step in fulfilling that mission.”
Institutional violators of the bill could face the revocation of the medical institution’s permit. The legislation allows hormones and surgeries to be used for procedures that are medically necessary in cases of chromosomal or genital abnormalities.
