Democrat Governor Signs Legislation to Create First Transgender ‘Tourism’ State

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) signed legislation that makes the state a safe haven for minors to receive transgender treatment procedures, including sex change operations and puberty blockers.

The laws prevent healthcare providers from being sued by other states where such procedures are illegal, and their residents travel to Colorado to receive treatment.

With the legislation, Colorado is labeled the country’s first transgender ‘tourism’ state.

“Here in Colorado, we value individual freedoms, and we stand up to protect them…I’m excited by the work of advocates and legislators to further Colorado’s reputation as a beacon of freedom, a beacon of choice, a beacon of individuality where we live our own lives on our own terms in a Colorado for all,” Gov. Polis said.

Daily Mail reported:

Colorado will become the first state to legally protect teen transgender treatment ‘tourism’ as part of a trio of bills signed by its Democratic governor.

The new laws mean healthcare providers cannot be sued by red states where gender-affirming medication and surgery are illegal if their residents travel to Colorado for care.

It makes Colorado a safe haven for children under-18 with gender dysphoria looking for puberty blockers, hormone therapies and sex change operations – which have been restricted in more than a dozen Republican states.

Leading US medical authorities support so-called gender-affirming care for minors but conservatives and some experts argue children are too young to make irreversible changes to their bodies.

The three bills that Gov Jared Polis signed into law on Friday also protect healthcare providers from being sued by neighboring states if their residents travel to Colorado for abortions.

Bordering states of Wyoming and Oklahoma are among the red states that have severely restricted transgender care for minors and abortions.

Colorado is the latest Democrat-led state to pass horrific legislation that pushes the trans agenda on children.

The Washington State Legislature passed a bill that allows state agencies to hide children seeking “gender-affirming care” from their parents.

If parents don’t consent to their child’s gender transition surgeries, the legislation allows the state to kidnap their child.

As ABC News noted, the series of bills signed by Gov. Polis also makes Colorado an abortion safe haven.

A trio of health care bills enshrining access in Colorado to abortion and gender-affirming procedures and medications became law Friday as the Democrat-led state tries to make itself a safe haven for its neighbors, whose Republican leaders are restricting care.

The main goal of the legislation signed by Democratic Gov. Jared Polis is to ensure people in surrounding states and beyond can go to Colorado to have an abortion, begin puberty blockers or receive gender-affirming surgery without fear of prosecution. Bordering states of Wyoming and Oklahoma have passed abortion bans, and Utah has severely restricted transgender care for minors.

Many states with abortion or transgender care bans are also criminalizing traveling to states for the purpose of accessing legal health care.
