White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defended giving experimental puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones to children and teens suffering from gender dysphoria as a “best practice” and warned that the federal government would take action against states that ban such practices.

Critics of medicalized gender transition and elective surgeries to remove breast tissue and mutilate the genitals of underage youth say these practices are unethical and lead to a lifetime of sterilization and maimed bodies.

At a White House press briefing Thursday, Psaki condemned Republican elected officials for what she derided as “engaging in a disturbing cynical trend of attacking vulnerable transgender kids for purely partisan, political reasons.” Paski specifically singled out Republican lawmakers in Alabama for debating legislation that she claimed would “target trans youth with tactics that threatens to put pediatricians in prison if they provide medically necessary, lifesaving healthcare for the kids they serve.”
