With the Texas House of Representatives set today to once again consider SB 14 — a bill that would interfere with parents’ ability to make healthcare decisions for their own children by banning gender-affirming healthcare for transgender minors in Texas — Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced his intention to investigate Dell Children’s Medical Center in Auston for allegedly performing “illegal” “gender transitioning” procedures on minor children.
Paxton also issued a statement criticizing Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza for dropping charges against an activist who Paxton claims assaulted a Texas DPS trooper during protests last Tuesday, May 2, at the Capitol against SB 14.
It is worth noting that throughout his tenure as AG, Paxton has been under federal indictment on charges of securities fraud, and, since late 2020, he has been under federal investigation related of abuse of office allegations coming from his own former top deputies at the AOG.
Those whistleblowers have also filed a civil suit claiming Paxton retaliated against them. Dell Children’s Medical Center Paxton has issued a “request to examine” to Dell Children’s Medical Center which “seeks to determine whether any state laws have been violated or any misrepresentations have been made to parents and patients” regarding gender-affirming healthcare provided at the facility, according to a press release today from Paxton’s office.
