In a massive blow to LGBTQ+ rights, a prominent Oklahoma-based hospital has ended its gender-affirming care for trans youth due to an archaic new law.

On 4 October, the state’s conservative governor Kevin Stitt signed Senate Bill 3 into law. Under the new legislation, the University of Oklahoma Medical Center and its children’s hospital will be eligible to receive over $108 million in federal funds from the American Rescue Plan Act.

However, due to Stitt’s anti-trans political stance, the prestigious hospital will only be able to collect the funds if they ban gender-affirming care for trans youth under the age of 18.
