Gregory Wayne Abbott (born November 13, 1957) is an American attorney who has served as the 48th governor of Texas since January 20, 2015. A member of the Republican Party, Abbott previously served as the 50th attorney general of Texas from 2002 to 2015. He is the third governor of any U.S. state to permanently use a wheelchair. He is also the first disabled governor in Texas history.
Gov. Greg Abbott issued a directive in February targeting trans youth and their families with child abuse investigations. The Travis County District Court today (Friday, Sept.
16) issued a third injunction blocking the state of Texas from Gov. Greg Abbott’s directive requiring the state Department of Family and Protective services from launching child abuse investigations targeting families that provide medically necessary, gender-affirming health care to their transgender children, according to a press release from the ACLU of Texas.
The directive, issued by Abbott in February and based on a discredited legal opinion by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, could have led to transgender youth being placed in foster care and their parents criminally charged with child abuse just for following the advice of their physicians and mental health providers.
