The Alabama state Senate voted Tuesday to criminalize performing gender transition surgeries or hormone therapy on minors who identify as transgender.

Under the Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act, doctors would be prohibited from treating Alabama minors with hormone therapy, surgery, or puberty blockers “intended to alter the minor child’s gender or delay puberty.”

The bill would also require schools to let parents know if their child has the “perception that his or her gender is inconsistent with his or her sex” and establish criminal penalties for violations.

The Alabama state Senate passed the legislation Tuesday 23-4, CBS News reported, sending the bill to the Alabama state House of Representatives. The Alabama House has already approved a companion bill, the publication reported, and the two combined bills would make it a felony for doctors to perform trans surgeries or hormone treatment on minors.

Medical professionals who violate the legislation, if passed and signed into law, could face up to 10 years in prison or pay a $15,000 fine, CBS reported.
