Letters to Oppose Harmful “Gender Transition” Surgeries and Procedures

In recent years we have seen alarming increases in the number of individuals, many of whom are minors, undergo physically damaging “gender transition” surgeries and procedures.

In addition to going against God’s good design for sex and gender, these surgeries and procedures flaunt sound medical practice and do lasting harm to their victims. Though many states have taken action to ban these procedures, it remains legal and widely available in much of the country.

The ERLC sent letters to the United States House and Senate Appropriations Committees on September 19, 20023, and to the United States House and Senate Armed Services Committees on September 14, 2023, urging them to pursue policies that prohibited taxpayer funding for “gender transitions.
