dc.description.abstractThe 2023 midterm cycle saw an increase in bills restricting gender-affirming medical care for transgender Americans. These bills go against the standards of care for the treatment of gender dysmorphia. In this review, the laws from Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida were analyzed along with transgender healthcare literature to postulate the consequences for medical providers if these bills were passed. Additionally, literature describing similar experiences in restrictive healthcare law for undocumented people in the Latinx community were considered. This review showed that the bills from the 2023 midterm cycle poses financial, moral, and professional hardships on providers. To counteract these laws, it is necessary for providers to mobilize and voice their concerns as an advocate for their patients.
