Republican legislators in Idaho have blocked a bill that would have made giving trans children gender-affirming care a crime.

House Bill 675 (HB 675) passed through the state’s Republican-controlled House of Representatives on 8 March by a vote of 55 in favour to 13 against.

If implemented, it would have seen those who give children gender-affirming care, such as puberty blockers and hormone therapy, punished by up to life in prison, according to the bill’s text.
