Stand Against this Ban

Neither licensure boards nor the General Assembly has the right to force Virginians to accept one view or another on this matter. Further, the science increasingly suggests children, in particular, are subject to great physical and emotional harm as a result of "gender transforming" surgeries and hormone therapies encouraged by counselors and doctors. 

Let loved ones and their counselors decide the appropriate course of action for those individuals struggling with gender dysphoria.
