The Florida Board of Medicine has voted to ban puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and
surgeries such as double mastectomies and castrations – activists call “gender-affirming care” – for children under the age of 18 in the state. The move to prohibit the life-altering hormones and surgeries for the treatment of gender dysphoria in children and teens makes the Florida medical board the first in the nation to pursue such a rule.
