“A subject that is really creating controversy across the country would be gender-affirming care for young people, and it's on the HHS website,” Braun told Becerra, referencing definitions laid out in a fact sheet from HHS in March that said “gender-affirming care” for young people includes social affirmation at any age, puberty blockers during puberty and hormone therapy starting during early adolescence.

 

Irreversible surgery is “typically used in adulthood or case-by-case basis in adolescence,” according to the agency.
