The American Medical Association said Monday that there is no "medically valid reason" to prohibit transgender individuals from serving in the military. The AMA, a national organization of physicians, adopted the policy Monday at its annual meeting. The policy is meant to help "modify" the Department of Defense guidelines that effectively ban transgender individuals from military service and make it impossible for currently serving transgender members to obtain appropriate healthcare. According to the AMA, there are more than 15,000 transgender people in the U.S. military. They risk discharge if they serve openly or their gender identity is made public. The Defense Department is currently reviewing its policy on transgender service members, but a decision is not expected until later this year.
