S.D. Gov. Noem Signs Ban on Sex Change Procedures for Minors

February 13, 2023

Today, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem signed HB 1080, the “Help Not Harm” bill, prohibiting the prescription of drugs or surgeries to minors for the purposes of changing their sex. South Dakota is now the seventh state to restrict such procedures in law.

In response, Terry Schilling, president of American Principles Project (APP), released the following statement hailing the news:

“The transgender industry’s assault on vulnerable children is appalling. Recent whistleblower testimony about the practices in at least one gender clinic have thrown open the curtain on so many abuses: Kids rushed into dangerous, life-changing procedures without fully comprehending the consequences. Parents misled or even outright cut out of the process. It is truly a horror show.

“Gov. Kristi Noem and South Dakota legislators deserve a great deal of credit for acting to protect children in their state from this medical malpractice. The momentum for this movement fighting the transgender industry continues to grow, and we’re just getting started.”
