Abstract :

The negative implications of legislation seeking to criminalize or otherwise prevent the provision of gender-affirming care for transgender youth in the U.S. are discussed. The likelihood that many of the laws may violate the Affordable Care Act, the U.S. Constitution, state constitutions or the Americans with Disabilities Act is suggested.
