Texas Court Temporarily Blocks Gov. Abbott’s Order to Investigate Parents of Transgender Children for Child Abuse

Reading now: 711

Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s possibly unconstitutional executive order requiring state agencies to investigate anyone, including parents, involved in or facilitating the delivery of medically-necessary gender-affirming care to transgender youth and teens has just been blocked, temporarily, by a Texas judge. “The court finds sufficient cause to enter a temporary injunction,” the judge ruled Friday evening, according to The New York Times’s J.

David Goodman. In stunning news, Lamba Legal revealed in today’s Texas District Court hearing a Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) employee, “Randa Mulanax testified that DFPS investigators were required to prioritize and investigate reports of gender-affirming care, forbidden to close such investigations, and told not to put anything in writing.

She resigned.” Abbott’s order has no legal or medical basis. According to a new report, Abbott campaign officials called labeling care for transgender youth and teens “child abuse” a political “winner,” with one comparing medically-approved and necessary care to cutting “off the hand of their kid.” Abbott is running for re-election against popular Democratic former U.S.
