Transgender Youths Become a Political Issue in Texas

To the Editor: Re “Texas Court Halts Inquiries Over Transgender Children” (news article, March 12): Thousands of parents — liberal, conservative and everything in between — face tough decisions when a child declares that he or she is transgender, particularly when that child showed no sign of gender dysphoria in his or her early years.

Unfortunately, this issue, like so many in our country, has been politicized. The edict by Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas to investigate parents for child abuse if they provide certain medical treatment to their transgender children was radical and divisive.

A Texas court ruled on March 11 that the policy had been improperly adopted and violated the State Constitution. Amid the political posturing, allowing children to alter their bodies through lifelong medical treatment is worth an analytical conversation.
