Child Mutilation Illegal in Mississippi

The Mississippi State Senate passed the Regulate Experimental Adolescent Procedures (REAP) Act, House Bill 1125, to prevent child mutilation and to protect vulnerable children by prohibiting gender reassignment surgery and hormone replacement therapy for anyone under the age of 18.

The House Bill, having already been passed previously by the House of Representatives, had a clean pass through the Senate with no additional modifications, changes, or amendments and is now headed to the Governor for signature.

In a legislative session that has been thus far wrought with disappointment for conservatives, this is a huge WIN for conservatives, and it is all thanks to YOU.

The Mississippi Freedom Caucus sent out an email in early September 2022 titled “Stop Supporting Woke UMMC Agenda” alerting our supporters that your tax dollars were funding the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC), a state-owned and funded hospital, and that the hospital was promoting gender reassignment surgery, including for children.

The Trustworthy, Evidence-based, Affirming, and Multidisciplinary (TEAM) Clinic within UMMC’s Center for Gender and Sexual Minority Health listed via their website that anyone over the age of 13 could make an appointment with the clinic that provides “gender affirmative medicine, including hormone therapy.”

Immediately upon learning this, YOU, our supporters, took decisive action utilizing our action center to send out nearly 1,000 emails to EVERY member of the MS Legislature alerting them of UMMC’s woke agenda and demanding action to stop child mutilation. We are proud to say that, based on YOUR efforts, the bill to outlaw this practice in Mississippi is now on its way to the Governor’s desk.
