The Okla. GOP links hospital funding to the termination of gender-affirming care.

Oklahoma lawmakers tied $108 million in federal funds to a hospital’s ability to provide gender-affirming care. Transgender advocates and medical experts say facilities had been following best practices. Parents of transgender children who are receiving care at Oklahoma Children’s Hospital say they may have to travel. About 100 children are receiving gender-affirming care at the center, state Sen. Carri Hicks says.
