House Bill 1297 would prohibit transgender people from obtaining birth certificates that accurately reflect their identity.

The ACLU of North Dakota opposes House Bill 1297. Forcing transgender North Dakotans to go through life with inaccurate birth certificates – a basic form of identification and essential government document – would mean trans people would be forced to disclose their trans identity when seeking essential needs.
