Obama Judges Overturning Prohibitions On Genital Mutilation and Butchering

Leftist Centersquare of North Carolina reports:

Legislation vetoed by Gov. Roy Cooper to protect minors from permanent life-altering gender transitions faces a likely override when Republican supermajorities in the General Assembly return next week.

The anticipated approval of House Bill 808 over the Democratic governor's objections would ban medical professionals in North Carolina from performing gender transition surgeries or prescribing puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones to minors, mirroring legislation adopted in 20 other states.

North Carolina Democrats opposed to the ban have already warned the legislation is expected to face legal challenges, a concern that has went largely unaddressed publicly by Republican bill sponsors and legislative leaders.

Pending legal challenges are in multiple states.

Federal courts in Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana and Florida have blocked similar bans on gender transitions for minors amid ongoing court battles, while Republican Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond agreed to stay enforcement of the same pending a legal challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union.

Federal judges in Kentucky and Tennessee last week also enjoined laws against transitions for minors from taking effect while lawsuits challenging the bans proceed.
