LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Courts nationwide are delivering a mixed verdict on the future of laws restricting gender-affirming medical care for transgender youth. Legal battles have ramped up over the restrictions, following a historic wave of laws targeting transgender people’s rights. Judges have ruled against bans in Georgia and Texas this week, while courts are allowing Alabama and Missouri to move forward with their restrictions. A ruling on a Florida law that restricts the care for adults could be imminent in the next week. At least 22 states have enacted laws banning or restricting gender-affirming care, and most of the laws face court challenges.
