Vote NO on SB126 on Thursday

Dear [title] [last name],

Please, vote NO on SB126 on Thursday when it reaches the Senate floor. This legislation is a caption bill that carries language regulating the standards for best-practice, life-saving health care for transgender youth.

It is important for you know that transgender youth, their parents, and their physicians--the people most affected by the bill--have not requested this legislation. It could result in the interruption of care for transgender youth.  The current standard of care is backed by research, is ethical, and it saves the lives of transgender youth. It does not need to be put in the Tennessee Code. 

New developments in research could eventually change the standard. It should not be necessary to amend the law when standards of health care change. That is a high obstacle.

Thank you for considering my views.
