Montana Joins States Banning Sex-Change Procedures for Minors

May 1, 2023

On Friday, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte signed Senate Bill 99, prohibiting the prescription of puberty-blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries to minors for the purposes of attempting to change their sex. Montana is now the 17th state to restrict these procedures in some capacity.

In response, Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement cheering the law’s passage:

“The transgender industry has taken another defeat. Despite their attempts to gaslight the country into believing that this dangerous medical malpractice is somehow ‘life-saving care,’ more and more states are seeing through the lies. In reality, these sterilizing drugs and mutilating surgeries are anything but necessary, and it is critical that we protect kids from being pushed down this damaging pathway that will have lifelong consequences.

“APP thanks Gov. Gianforte and state lawmakers for taking this strong step to defend Montana’s children and their families, and we look forward to even more states joining them as this year’s legislative session approaches its end.”
