On Wednesday, SB10 passed out of the Senate Health Committee with a vote of 11-2.
Dillon Nettles, director of policy and advocacy, said:
"Alabama lawmakers are once again threatening the healthcare choice of everyday Alabamians. By passing SB10 out of the Senate Health committee today, children across Alabama are at risk of losing life-preserving care due to their identity and the government. This legislation also puts Alabama's doctors at risk of being charged with a Class C felony simply for performing their duties by supporting the health and well-being of transgender children. This legislation is wholly dangerous and irresponsible, particularly at a time when the importance of qualified and non-exclusionary medical professionals is more evident than ever, and children are already struggling under the circumstances of this pandemic."
