Politifact rating: Mostly True (On March 23, Missouri’s attorney general launched a webpage for people to submit a “complaint or concern about gender transition intervention” they have experienced or observed in the state. The attorney general issued an emergency rule April 13 restricting access to gender-affirming care. Critics are concerned the new tip line could be used to report identifying information about trans people and their health care providers to the state.)
