Greg Abbott claims to care about the safety and well-being of transgender minors, but his recent policy of classifying gender-affirming care as "child abuse" only causes more suffering to some of Texas' most vulnerable children.

This policy is not only harmful, but is based in ignorance and disregards medical standards. While the court system determines the legality of this policy, Governor Abbott should shift his efforts to ban a practice that actually harms children: conversion therapy.Gender-affirming care has been proven vital for the well-being of transgender youth.

The standard of care is highly individualized, recommended by the leading medical organizations and ensures that treatment is aligned toward appreciating and supporting one's gender identity.The standard is conducted under the care of licensed professions after a lengthy consultation with kids and their parents, which always involves a psychological evaluation.
