Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds Signs Law Banning 'Gender Transitions' for Children, Males in Female Bathrooms

"We need to just pause, we need to understand what these emerging therapies actually may potentially do to our kids..." -Gov. Kim Reynolds

(Des Moines, IA) — [LifeSiteNews.com] Iowa is the latest state to prohibit surgical or chemical "transitioning" of gender-confused minors as well as forcing students to share restrooms with members of the opposite sex, thanks to new laws signed by Republican Gov.

The Des Moines Register reports that on Wednesday, Reynolds signed Senate File 538, which forbids the administering of prohibits Iowa doctors from prescribing puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, or "transition" surgeries to anyone younger than 18, and Senate File 482, which forbids schools from allowing individuals to use a bathroom or changing that does not match their biological sex.

The second bill also requires parental consent for a student to use alternative facilities, in order to prevent schools from indulging a child's gender confusion behind their parents' backs.

"We need to just pause, we need to understand what these emerging therapies actually may potentially do to our kids," Reynolds said. "My heart goes out to them. I'm a parent, I'm a grandmother, I know how difficult this is. This is an extremely uncomfortable position for me to be in. I don't like it. But I have to do what I believe right now is in the best interest of the kids."

Left-wing groups including the Iowa chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and the Iowa State Education Association condemned the new laws. Cathryn Oakley, state legislative director for the far-left LGBT activist group Human Rights Campaign, attacked the "transitioning" measure as "life-threatening."

However, evidence indicates that the danger rests with promoting transgenderism, rather than curbing it.

Studies find that more than 80% of children experiencing gender dysphoria outgrow it on their own by late adolescence, and that even full "reassignment" surgery often fails to resolve gender-confused individuals' heightened tendency to engage in self-harm and suicide — and may even exacerbate it, including by reinforcing their confusion and neglecting the actual root causes of their mental strife...
