Egberto Willies on actNow with Julianna Forlano
One would think that in a state with a failing Electric Grid, Governor Abbott and his cohort would spend time on issues that matter. Instead, the governor is displaying his inner evil by putting trans’ lives at risk. We discussed that on actNow with Julianna Forlano.
Gov. Greg Abbott told state health agencies in Texas on Tuesday that medical treatments provided to transgender adolescents, widely considered to be the standard of care in medicine, should be classified as “child abuse” under existing state law.
His statements, made in a letter to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, followed an opinion on Friday by Attorney General Ken Paxton that said providing medical treatments like puberty-suppressing drugs and hormones to transgender teenagers should be investigated as child abuse.
Governor Abbott specified that the reporting requirements applied to “all licensed professionals who have direct contact with children who may be subject to such abuse, including doctors, nurses, and teachers, and provides criminal penalties for failure to report such child abuse.”
It is still unclear how and whether the orders, which do not change Texas law, would be enforced. While the state’s child welfare agency has said that it will investigate such claims, some county and district attorneys have stated that they will not enforce the opinion.
Republicans are making the necessary steps to speed up Texas’ transition to Blue. It cannot come fast enough.
