On Feb. 15, 2022, Assembly Bill 977 was introduced to the Wisconsin State Legislature by nine state representatives, and cosponsored by three state senators. Assembly Bill 977 proposed in the cold legal logic of political change that transgender and nonbinary kids under the age of 18 should be prohibited from any gender transition procedures and gender affirming medical care. Thankfully, this bill was left dead on the legislature floor March 15, but similar bills are on the rise across the country, including Missouri’s SB843, Tennessee's HB2835 and Arizona's HB2608. Gender affirming care, however, is critical for the health and livelihood of transgender youth.
