Along with our allies at Kentucky Family Foundation, we have an update and urgent request for your help.
Governor Beshear has chosen to veto SB 150, a bill that protects our children from the irreversible harm of gender transition surgery and procedures. You helped us get this bill passed, and now we need your help once again to get it across the finish line!
The vote to override Gov. Beshear’s veto could happen today or tomorrow, and we need you to contact your legislators and urge them to vote “Yes.”
Kentuckians overwhelmingly support protecting children from harm and empowering parents in education!
Senate Bill (S.B.) 150 is based almost entirely on our model Help Not Harm Bill. It would prevent healthcare practitioners from performing dangerous, irreversible gender transition surgeries on children, including mastectomies or “top surgery.” It would also prohibit treating children with hormone therapy and other nonsurgical gender transition procedures that cause irreversible effects like infertility and body changes. Finally, it holds doctors accountable by providing a way to sue doctors that perform these procedures on children.
Our kids deserve to be kept safe from predatory medical procedures. The bill also ensures commonsense student privacy protections in restrooms and locker rooms, and it empowers parents to have a say in their child’s education.
It only takes a minute in using the form below. By doing so, you will help ensure Kentucky law helps, not harms, our kids.

PS – After you’ve taken action, watch for a message telling you how to follow up with your legislators via telephone to leave a voicemail for them as well. That will double the impact! And please share this with friends. Thank you!
