Legal System and Gender Affirming Care 

In the face of these relentless attacks on gender affirming care and TGNCNB youth, New York is called upon to be a beacon for access to gender affirming care. And yet, critical gaps have emerged in New York’s recently-enacted shield laws, which aim to prevent the machinery of New York government from facilitating efforts to penalize gender affirming care or reproductive health care. For this reason, the NYCLU strongly supports S.7506-A (Hoylman-Sigal)/A.7687-A (Bronson), which would shore up these laws and send a clear message that New York will not participate in other states’ attempts to stigmatize and punish gender affirming care providers, patients, family members, or those who support them.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
