The state of Texas this week declared that performing transgender sex reassignment surgeries on minors constitutes child abuse.

“Genital mutilation of a child through reassignment surgery is child abuse,” Masters wrote in her letter to the governor. “This surgical procedure physically alters a child’s genitalia for non-medical purposes potentially inflicting irreversible harm to children’s bodies.” (Read more from “State Determines Sex-Change Surgery for Children Abuse” HERE)
