Dr. Rachel Levine: 'Egregious' anti-trans legislation in states will harm people


Dr. Rachel Levine, the assistant Secretary for Health and the first transgender federal official confirmed by the Senate, says politicians are “using transgender individuals as a wedge issue.” Dr. Levine tells Jonathan Capehart that “transgender youth are vulnerable” and “need to be supported and advocated for” – in particular, she says anti-trans legislation that prohibits access to gender affirming care will do harm to young trans people.
