Governor Cox Comments on Gender-Affirming Care for Youth
Utah Governor Spencer Cox was recently on CBS’ “Face the Nation” program over the weekend where he was asked about the Utah laws banning minors from access to hormone therapy, puberty blockers, and gender reassignment surgery.
Gov. Cox said major medical organizations in the U.S. are too politicized when it comes to this issue. He also said that he has looked for unbiased information surrounding the topic but couldn’t find anything.
The Utah Governor also called organizations like the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics political groups, and said they weren’t doing the required research on gender-affirming care on youth.
