Growing Number of Federal Judges Blocking Bans on Mutilating Kids’ Genitals

This is “healthcare”

So: the judges are making judgements based on scientific literature that says men can transform into women if you inject them with hormones and chop up their genitals.

This is the definition of a “failed society.”


In state after state, conservative lawmakers this year have banned medical procedures for transgender youth. Now, a growing number of federal judges are blocking those laws from taking effect.

U.S. district court judges have halted such laws in six states – Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee – finding that they infringe on the constitutional guarantee to equal protection under the 14th Amendment.

Two lawsuits challenging laws in Montana and Georgia have yet to be ruled on, and in Oklahoma the opposing sides in May agreed to set aside the law until the court case is heard.

The court rulings offer temporary relief from the recent rush of bills banning transgender youth from receiving treatments such as puberty blockers and hormone therapy. Twenty states have passed such measures, with the bulk of them signed into law this year.

“It’s quite noteworthy that the results in these cases have so far been so consistent,” said Tobias Wolff, a University of Pennsylvania law professor specializing in constitutional law and LGBTQ rights. “And it’s not because the law in this area was such a slam dunk. It’s because the facts are so clearly against these laws.”

Democrats, LGBTQ advocacy groups and health providers say the bans unjustly target a vulnerable community for whom gender-affirming care can be life-saving.

This is a “driving narrative” – mutilating your genitals is life-saving care. They just keep saying it over and over again.

As we’ve talked about on this website a lot, there are studies showing that even when a person consciously is aware that something is factually untrue, they become more comfortable with it the more times they hear it.

That’s what’s being exploited here, and constantly by the media. They come up with these slogans, and just repeat them over and over again.

The judges also have said laws banning such care violate a parent’s right to make healthcare decisions for their children.

“Courts are really taking time to understand and recognize the humanity of the families and children impacted by these bans,” said Cynthia Cheng-Wun Weaver, litigation director for the Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBTQ advocacy in the United States.

Supporters of the laws are undeterred, saying the courts have erred and that the prevailing medical consensus will change.
