Stop Funding Harmful "Sex Change" Surgery in Pennsylvania

PA State Representatives are now considering a bill that would stop your tax dollars from funding irreversible “sex change” surgery - House Bill 1933.

 

 Stop paying for harmful sex change surgeryLast year, Governor Tom Wolf unilaterally mandated the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to cover children’s “sex change” surgery and related services. And your tax dollars are also paying for these irreversible surgeries on adults through Medicaid.

 

This is harmful to children and adults alike. In the absence of medical intervention, the majority of children who question their gender identity ultimately identify with their own biological sex.

 

And it’s costly to taxpayers since the price of one “gender reassignment” surgery can total well over $100,000.

 

TAKE ACTION: Use the form below to tell your State Representative to end taxpayer funding for "sex change" surgery.

PA State Representatives are now considering whether to continue using tax dollars to fund irreversible “sex change” surgery on children, something Governor Tom Wolf unilaterally added last year to the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). 

Funding irreversible sex-change surgery harms children. In the absence of medical intervention, most children who question their gender identity ultimately identify with their own biological sex. Clinical evidence suggests that children continue to suffer from emotional issues following surgery,  and it’s costly to taxpayers, with the cost of just one person’s “gender reassignment” procedures totaling well over $100,000.

 

Groups are pressuring State House Republicans to continue this harmful practice, so we need you to take action today to protect children and taxpayers.

TAKE ACTIONUse the form below to tell State House Republican Leadership and your State Representative to support an end to taxpayer-funding for "gender reassignment" surgery on children through CHIP.
