(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) An Oklahoma bill would make using public funds to provide a sex change, or a referral for a sex change a felony.
Oklahoma Sen. David Bullard, R-Durant, sponsored Oklahoma Senate Bill 129, according to ABC News
The ban would apply to “any medical or surgical treatment including but not limited to physician’s services, inpatient and outpatient hospital services, or prescribed drugs,” according to the text of the bill.
The prohibition would apply “to any healthcare professional for gender transition procedures.”
Under this bill a referral for a sex change is defined as “unprofessional conduct.” A referral for a sex change would result in “immediate revocation of the license or certificate of the physician or other healthcare professional.”
The bill originally applied only to people under the age of 26, but that language was removed, according to Yahoo!
“You cannot cure gender dysphoria with a knife,” Bullard said about the legislation he sponsored, Tulsa World reported.
Oklahoma has been active in the struggle to protect women and children from the effects of gender ideology this session.
Oklahoma House Bill 2177, for example, prohibits insurance coverage from covering transgender medical procedures. It passed through the Oklahoma house and is now being considered by the senate.
Another Oklahoma bill, SB 613, which was introduced by Sen. Julie Daniels, R-Bartlesville, would immediately revoke the license of a medical professional who offered gender transition services to minors under the age of 18.
Yet another bill, Oklahoma HB 2186, sponsored by Oklahoma Rep. Kevin West, R-Moore, would ban public drag shows that were harmful to children.
Oklahoma has also passed two laws seeking to curb the damages done by gender ideology. One law bans men from competing in women’s sports, and the other prohibits birth certificates to label babies as non-binary.
