Require revoking the licenses of doctors who provide such services. Tell public schools to block trans students from using bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity.

Allow public school teachers to misgender trans students. Prevent public schools from allowing educational presentations that study gender identity or sexual orientation.
