Montana has eliminated the option to change the sex listed on a birth certificate to align with a so-called “gender identity” and has affirmed that no medical procedure “changes a person’s sex.”
In an emergency order issued Monday, the Montana health department declared that it will now only record biological sex, not “gender,” defined as a psychological or cultural “construct,” on birth certificates.
“He created them male and female, and blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created.” Genesis 5:2
“Sex is different from gender and is an immutable genetic fact, which is not changeable, even by surgery,” reads the order, signed by health department director Adam Meier, an appointee of Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte.
“Accordingly, this emergency rule does not authorize the amendment of the sex identified/cited on a birth certificate based on gender transition, gender identity, or change of gender,” it continues.
The new rule came after a state judge last month blocked a law requiring people who identify as “transgender” to show proof of a “gender transition” to alter the sex on their birth certificates.
