A look at the research: The latest on gender-affirming care in Idaho
Idaho could become the latest state in the country to ban gender-affirming care for anyone under 18.

Lawmakers supporting the bill paint these treatments as ineffective and harmful with high rates of regret. But asJames Dawson reports, research shows the opposite.
