Lawmakers in Texas are considering a new bill that would criminalize children being offered life-altering sex-change surgeries, gender "transition" drugs, and other transgender treatments.

The Republican-led Texas Senate State Affairs Committee began reviewing the legislation on Monday.

If passed, it would make it illegal for parents and doctors to consent or administer transition medication or surgeries to children. 

SB 1646 would criminalize sex-change treatments for minors by classifying it as child abuse for parents and doctors.

The Committee held a hearing over the bill on Monday.

“Children are unable to give informed consent,” Republican Executive Committee Member Jill Glover testified.

"This bill gives children a chance to get to adulthood with intact bodies," Glover added.

SB1646 would prohibit parents from “administering or supplying, or consenting to or assisting in the administering or supplying of puberty suppression prescription drug or cross-sex hormone to a child, other than an intersex child, for the purpose of gender transitioning or gender reassignment.”

The bill, if passed, will also remove children from the care of people enabling or forcing hormone treatment and sex-change surgeries, according to The Gateway Pundit.

"Parents who break the proposed law would be in violation of the state’s Family Code, which would trigger a Child Protective Investigation, resulting in the possible removal of the child from their home, according to Perry’s office,” KVUE reports.

"Doctors who perform sex-change treatments would also be accused of child abuse, which would trigger a license investigation by the Texas Medical Board."

The bill will characterize hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and puberty blockers as child abuse.

The left is on a rampage over the bill, however, arguing that the bill would deny healthcare for trans children.

In reality, it would only force them to wait until they are adults to make life-altering decisions.

The bill is one of many seeking to protect children from controversial treatments across the nation.

Last month, the Arkansas state legislature passed the first-ever ban on transgender surgeries, puberty blockers, and HRTs for minors.

There are at least 17 other states considering similar laws.
