Texas Investigating Over Medical Treatments for Trans Youth, Lawsuit Says

Reading now: 971

HOUSTON — Texas officials have begun investigating parents of transgender adolescents for possible child abuse, according to a lawsuit filed on Tuesday, after Gov.

Greg Abbott directed them last week to handle certain medical treatments as possible crimes. The investigations by the state’s Department of Family and Protective Services, which have not been previously reported, were launched in response to an order from Mr.

Abbott to the agency, the lawsuit says. The order followed a nonbinding opinion by the Texas attorney general, Ken Paxton, that parents who provide their transgender teenagers with puberty-suppressing drugs or other medically accepted treatments — which doctors describe as gender-affirming care — could be investigated for child abuse.
