The fight at the Texas State Capitol continues Interfaith, bipartisan group launches ‘Overturn the Order’ campaign TAMMYE NASH | Managing The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services has launched investigations into at least 13 Texas families for providing gender-affirming healthcare to their transgender children since Feb.

22, 2022, when Gov. Greg Abbott issued a directive to the state’s Department of Family and Protective Services to investigate such families for abuse.

At least some of those investigations are on hold following temporary restraining orders issued in two separate lawsuits challenging Abbott’s order, but the Texas State Supreme Court has ruled that investigations into families not party to those lawsuits are not protected by the TROs.

On Jan. 2, eight days before the Texas Legislature is due to start its 2023 session, an “interfaith, bipartisan grassroots group” based in Austin launched its “Overturn the Order” campaign, an effort to get Abbott to rescind his order, which was based on a legal opinion from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton that has since been widely discredited by legal experts.
