Montana transgender lawmaker silenced for third day; protesters interrupt House proceedings

It was the latest development in a three-day fight over Zephyr's remarks against lawmakers who support of a ban on gender-affirming care. Zephyr, who is transgender, hasn't been allowed to speak on the statehouse floor since Thursday because she told her Republican colleagues last week they would have "blood on their hands" if they banned gender-affirming medical care for transgender youth.

Okay, taken with the whole "blood on their hands", that's kind of a fucked up thing to say considering the shooting that happened at Nashville because it sounds like Zephyr was saying that taking away gender affirming care can lead to another Nashville situation. Or it could also be interpreted as that transgender youths are at risk for lack of gender affirmation care.
