Ohio Passes Transgender Youth Ban

By Charlotte Robinson, December 18, 2023

UPDATE: Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine Vetos HB 68...
While you were busy with your holiday festivities the Ohio state legislature passed Sub. HB 68 a bill that bans essential health care for transgender youth & prohibits them from participating in school sports. Now Governor Mike DeWine has less than ten days from receiving the bill by the Secretary of State to veto the bill, sign it into law or do nothing & allow the bill to become law automatically. Maria Bruno, Policy Director of Equality Ohio stated, “Governor DeWine's veto of HB 68 is crucial to preventing further harm to children & families in Ohio. If HB 68 becomes law, politicians would be overruling parents on their child’s most personal, important medical care. This bill is two bills in one: it would ban & even criminalize lifesaving medical treatment endorsed by every major medical association in the country & overrule existing, thoughtful OHSAA & NCAA participation policies in order to prevent a handful of kids from playing school sports with their friends, further alienating & villainizing transgender & gender nonconforming youth. This isn’t just government overreach, it’s a cruel weaponization of state power against kids. Equality Ohio will continue to fight for trans youth & we are grateful for the thousands of community members, businesses & lawmakers who have spoken out against this bill. To the transgender youth in Ohio: we see you & we love you. Ohio is your home & we will never stop fighting for you.” According to Equality Ohio 585 people submitted testimony to lawmakers to reject these efforts since HB 68 was introduced compared to only approximately 40 supporters of the bill many of whom were not from Ohio.
