In an interview with left-wing outlet NowThis News, Biden answered an array of questions regarding young Americans. At one point, Biden was asked by 25-year-old transgender actress and comic creator Dylan Mulvaney if states should have the right to “ban gender-affirming healthcare.” Biden responded, “I don’t think any state or anybody should have the right to do that—as a moral question and as a legal question. I just think it’s wrong”

Biden also expressed concern over the idea that transgender Americans could be prohibited from certain medications or procedures.
“I feel very, very strongly that you should have every single solitary right, including use of your gender identity bathrooms when public,” He added.
In March The Department of Health and Human Services released what they see as appropriate treatments for transgender adolescents, including: “‘Top’ surgery – to create male-typical chest shape or enhance breasts;” and “‘Bottom’ surgery – surgery on genitals or reproductive organs, facial feminization or other procedures.”
