PM.: Hundreds of protesters descended on the Kentucky State Capitol on Wednesday as Republican lawmakers enacted a sweeping ban on sex changes for minors after overriding the veto of the Democratic governor.
Under the Senate Bill 150, doctors are prohibited from providing hormone therapy or other gender-affirming treatments to anyone under the age of 18.
The legislation was passed by the Republican-controlled legislature last month, but Democratic Governor Andy Beshear vetoed the bill, calling it an attack on the transgender community.
On Wednesday, lawmakers returned to the state capitol for the final days of the 2023 legislative session.
According to the Courier-Journal, hundreds of teens joined other activists from across Kentucky in the State Capitol in Frankfort to oppose the bill.

Kentucky State Police removed several protesters who refused to remain silent during the proceedings in the House of Representatives as lawmakers discussed overturning Governor Andy Beshear’s veto of SB 150. Some of the protesters locked arms and chanted, “trans kids are under attack.” According to the outlet, they were also removed and arrested.
The Senate overrode Beshear’s veto in a 29 to 8 vote and the veto was then overridden in the House by a vote of 76 to 23.
A few of the protesters were seen weeping in response to the override vote while others chanted “vote them out” and yelled “shame.”
UPDATE: Protesters who were arrested in the house chamber were taken to the Franklin County jail, according to Chris Hartman of the Fairness Campaign.@LEX18News has a crew heading that way. https://t.co/0N96fD9CP6

Supporters of SB 150 were also present at the Capitol during the proceedings on Wednesday.
Following the veto, Beshear said in a statement to the media that parents should have the right to make important medical decisions for their children, rather than having those decisions dictated by the government. “At the end of the day, this is about my belief — and, I think, the belief of the majority of Kentuckians — that parents should get to make important medical decisions about their children, not big government.” End PM.
