Just days after the U.S. Supreme Court abolished the constitutional rights of women to abortion, Alabama banned parents from receiving adolescent inhibitors and other specific treatments for transgender children. I quoted the ruling to do.
This quote seeks to lift a federal court injunction that partially blocked the enforcement of a newly enacted state ban on medical intervention for young people whose gender identity conflicts with their birth gender. Was appealed by the Attorney General.
The appeal explicitly exercised the recent Supreme Court’s opinion overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that the state legalizes abortion and applied the same reason to other rights-related issues. It is believed to be the first time.
The Alabama appeal filed on Monday reflected the words of the High Court because adolescent-suppressing hormones and other treatments for transgender minors are “not deeply rooted in our history and traditions.” Claimed to have the authority to outlaw. “”
The complaint also goes against widespread agreement among mainstream medical and mental health professionals that such gender-verifying care saves lives by reducing the risk of depression and suicide. Claimed to be dangerous and experimental.
A conservative majority decision of the Supreme Court last Friday paved the way for many states to enact measures to eliminate or limit a woman’s ability to end a pregnancy.
But advocates of civil liberties also say in a case titled Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization in Mississippi, Republican-controlled legislatures invite attempts to target other rights that conservatives oppose. I am concerned about the latest abortion ruling.
Judge Samuel Alito of the Supreme Court expressed his majority in favor and said that Dobbs’ decision should not “cast doubt on cases unrelated to abortion.”
However, Judge Clarence Thomas agrees to reconsider past rulings that protect contraceptive rights, legalize homosexual marriages nationwide, and invalidate state laws prohibiting homosexual sex. I asked the court.

Shannon Minter, director of legal affairs at the National Lesbian Rights Center, emailed Reuters Thursday.
Still, Mr. Minter said Alabama’s strategy “is unlikely to gain much traction because the majority is very clear and limited to the right to abortion.”
Arito sought to distinguish abortion from other established rights because of the implications of ending what Rho’s ruling called “potential life.” However, many legal scholars point out that Dobbs casts doubt on the constitutional basis of other rights later granted by the court.
Alabama law passed by a Republican-controlled legislature is a provisional injunction issued by US regional judge Liles Burke, who appointed former Republican President Donald Trump, less than a week after it came into force. The order prevented enforcement.
Burke said the High Court ruling has the right to direct the medical care of children if parents meet acceptable standards, and that transgender people are protected from discrimination under federal law. Claimed to have revealed.
Burke said some of the laws banning sex reassignment surgery, which experts say are extremely rare for minors, and banning school officials from keeping certain gender identity information secret from their parents. I left other provisions to do.
