Rapid response: Live coverage of Florida Board of Medicine 28 October 2022 anti-trans rulemaking meeting (raw)

On October 28, 2022, the Florida Board of Medicine and Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine held a joint meeting to advance a politically-motivated ban on any medical transition treatment for youth under 18, including puberty blockers, HRT or surgeries, outside of yet-to-be-defined exceptions for “clinical trials”. This illegitimate process, featuring invited far-right experts with religious precommitments to transphobia and a DeSantis appointee on the Board working in secret with anti-trans groups SEGM and Genspect, is also the first time this medical transition care for youth has been banned at the state level by executive action rather than a legislative act.
