Alabama VCAP

The Alabama Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act (VCAP) would prohibit the administering of medical procedures to alter otherwise physically healthy minor’s gender [sex] or delay puberty, with certain exceptions.

VCAP was passed by the Alabama legislature and signed by Gov. Kay Ivey in early April, 2022.

SB 184 would make it a Class C felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, for a doctor to prescribe puberty blockers and hormones to transgender youth under the age of 19. The bill also bans school officials from withholding information about a student’s gender identity from parents.
