Reading now: 702

Last week Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services to investigate anyone providing or enabling transgender children to receive certain medically-necessary care, claiming it legally falls under the state’s definition of child abuse.

A lawsuit filed by the ACLU and Lambda Legal claims the agency has already opened at least one investigation into a parent with a transgender daughter.

That mother works for the very agency now investigating her, and she has been placed on administrative leave, The New York Times reports.
