Ohio’s state legislature has banned transgender medical procedures involving children and restricted transgender athletes on school sports teams, overriding the governor’s veto.
The state’s Republican Governor Mike DeWine had rejected the legislation, saying such decisions should be between families and medical providers but the Ohio Senate overrode his veto by 24-8 after the state House voted similarly this month by 65-28.
Ohio’s legislation also banned doctors from prescribing puberty blockers, hormone therapy or performing gender transition surgery on minors, which in the state is defined as being under 18.
The ban will take effect in 90 days amounting to more than 20 Republican-led states that have lrestricted or banned transgender medical treatments involving children.
The law – called House Bill 68 – requires mental health providers to get permission from at least one parent to diagnose and treat a gender-related condition in a child and that Medical providers who violate the bill could face disciplinary action from their licensing board.
