The bill to remove transgender healthcare from Alabama minors died in the Senate today. It stayed underneath a stack of bills that had to be acted on but went without a vote on the last day the legislature wa in session.
AP: Alabama lawmakers ended their legislative session without a vote on one of the most controversial bills before them: a measure to outlaw gender-affirming medical treatments for transgender minors.
The Senate-passed bill died on the final night of the legislative session after it was placed at the end of a debate agenda that lawmakers did not have time to finish before the session adjourned around midnight on Monday. The demise of the bill was a victory for advocacy groups and transgender youth and their parents, who held rallies outside the Alabama Statehouse to oppose the bill.
I want to pause and recognize and celebrate how important it is that the Alabama felony ban on health care for trans young people died last night. So much incredible work and we keep building and fighting to live and thrive.
