The South Dakota legislature is considering the nation’s first law that could send doctors to jail for treating transgender youths younger than 16 with hormone therapy or surgery, and the fight over the legislation is intensifying. It has become so heated that after the legislation passed out of its first committee, the bill’s sponsor recently compared the doctors who treat transgender children to Nazis. He did it this week, as the world is remembering the liberation 75 years ago of Auschwitz, the Nazi Germany-operated concentration camp in occupied Poland, where more than 1 million people, most of whom were Jewish, were killed in gas chambers. “To me, that’s a crime against humanity when these procedures are done by these so-called doctors,” the bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Fred Deutsch (R), told Family Research Council president Tony Perkins in an interview on Wednesday.
