South Dakota governor signs HB1080 prohibiting gender-affirming treatment for trans minors

South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem on Monday signed a bill into law that will ban both surgical and non-surgical gender-affirming treatments for transgender minors in the state. HB 1080 is a bill that outlaws the prescription and administration of puberty-blocking medication in patients under 18, as well as sex hormone and surgery related to gender transition. The state Senate voted 30-4 on Thursday to send the bill to the governor after the state House voted to pass the bill 60-10 earlier this month. The new law takes effect on Jul. 1 and health care providers who violate it risk losing their professional or occupational licenses as a result.
