Appeals court upholds Tennessee, Kentucky bans on transgender care for minors

  • A federal appeals court has ruled in favor of Tennessee and Kentucky, allowing them to enforce laws banning transgender treatments for minors. The court stated that these laws discriminate based on sex and gender conformity and interfere with parents' authority over their children's medical decisions.
  • At least 22 states have enacted laws restricting or prohibiting gender-affirming medical care for transgender minors, leading to several lawsuits. Supporters argue that such care is safe and necessary, backed by major medical groups, while opponents claim it is experimental and life-altering.
  • In Tennessee, transgender minors can continue receiving treatments temporarily if they began before July 1 but must end by March 31, 2024. The U.S. Department of Justice has intervened in the legal challenge against Tennessee's law.
