Stitt has made protecting state’s ‘most vulnerable’ minors one of his top priorities since taking office
Oklahoma GOP Gov. Kevin Stitt is calling on lawmakers in the Sooner State to deliver a bill to his desk that "bans all gender-transition surgeries" for minors.
The request from Stitt, who’s currently serving his second term as governor, came during his 2023 State of the State address in Oklahoma City on Monday.
"We must protect our most vulnerable – our children," Stitt said, explaining that "minors can’t vote, can’t purchase alcohol, can’t purchase cigarettes."
"We shouldn’t allow a minor to get a permanent gender-altering surgery in Oklahoma," he continued, receiving a standing ovation. "That’s why I am calling on the legislature to send me a bill that bans all gender-transition surgeries and hormone therapies on minors in the state."
