The Florida bill to criminalize transgender youth health care didn’t get a vote and appears to be dead.

According to Flapol Rep. Anthony Sabatini‘s bill (HB 1365) didn’t get a vote today which is the last day that the House Health Quality Subcommittee meets this session.

Sounding the alarm on Anthony Sabatini’s transgender youth medical ban

Inappropriately titled the ‘Vulnerable Child Protection Act’, HB 1365 (Bill Text) would have made felonious everything from prescribing hormone blockers to gender confirmation surgery. Doctors convicted of following best medical doctrine regarding the treatment of transgender minors would face up to fifteen years in prison, fifteen years probation, and a $10,000 fine.
