Congress: Reject Anti-Trans Military Amendment

Target: Rep. Kevin McCarthy, House Majority Leader

Goal: Vote no on anti-trans National Defense Authorization Act amendment.

The House will soon vote on a measure that prohibits transgender military personnel from receiving medical care. An amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act was introduced by Representative Vicky Hartzler; it prohibits the Department of Defense from funding medical treatment “related to gender transition,” including hormone therapy.

Previously, Hartzler introduced an amendment to ban transgender people from serving in the military at all, but it was withdrawn. The services that are at risk under this amendment are considered medically necessary and appropriate for transgender people by the American Medical Association.

This amendment is purely discriminatory, and if it passes, it will put the health of transgender military service members at risk and make it difficult for military doctors to care for them. Add your name to the petition below to demand that the House vote against this measure.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Representative McCarthy,

Representative Vicky Hartzler has introduced an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that prohibits transgender military service members from receiving appropriate medical care. This amendment is purely discriminatory in nature, and if it passes, it will endanger the health of many members of the American military.

Transgender individuals deserve access to necessary healthcare, and this amendment openly targets trans people and puts their wellbeing at risk. I demand that as the House majority leader, you do all you can to ensure that this amendment does not pass.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
