South Carolina Governor Signs Bill Banning Sex Change Surgeries for Minors

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster signed a historic bill banning sex change surgeries and hormones for minors.

House Bill 4624, dubbed the “Help not Harm” bill, prohibits anyone under the age of 18 from undergoing sex change surgery or any form of puberty blockers or hormones.

According to the Associated Press, the bill requires school principals or vice principals “to notify parents or guardians if a child wanted to use a name other than their legal one, or a nickname or pronouns that did not match their sex assigned at birth.”

“We can put to rest the notion that the governor cares about limited government and personal freedom,” Jace Woodrum, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of South Carolina, said in a statement Tuesday.

“With the stroke of a pen, he has chosen to insert the will of politicians into healthcare decisions, trample on the liberties of trans South Carolinians, and deny the rights of the parents of trans minors,” Woodrum added.

McMaster wrote in a statement posted to X on Wednesday:

“I signed the Help Not Harm bill into law, which protects our state’s children from irreversible gender transition procedures and bans public funds from being used for them.”

“I look forward to joining legislators and supporters at a ceremonial bill signing in the Upstate next week.”

The law had an immeditate effect following the singing by the governor.

CNN reported:

The Human Rights Campaign issued a statement calling the law “a major violation of South Carolinians’ freedoms.”

The measure “threatens to plunge the transgender community into a deeper health care crisis, leaving Virginia as the only Southern state without a ban, worsening nightmarish travel times and stripping transgender youth throughout the South of access to care,” Brandon Wolf, the group’s national press secretary, said in the statement.

South Carolina becomes just the latest state to restrict the care for trans minors, with around half of all states placing similar laws on their books in recent years.
