The Alabama Senate has voted 23-4 in favour of a bill which will prohibit medical professionals from providing gender-affirming healthcare to young trans people.

According to CBS News, doctors who do not adhere to the so-called ‘Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act’ could face $15,000 fines.

The bill also requires school staff to disclose trans children’s gender identity to their parents, with or without the child’s consent.
