California Bill Aims to Expedite Licensing for Gender-Affirming Care Amid Global Debate on Transgender Healthcare

A new bill in California aims to speed up the licensing process for medical professionals specializing in gender-affirming care. This includes treatments like puberty blockers and surgeries that match a person’s gender identity. Supporters believe it will make it easier for transgender people to access the care they need, according to the report of Free Beacon.

This comes after a report in the UK raised doubts about the evidence behind some gender transition practices. While other countries have taken action based on these findings, the US has largely ignored them. Critics worry about the risks of rushing into irreversible procedures especially for minors.
