Supreme Court calls for ACLU response to Idaho’s child transgender surgeries ban

The Supreme Court on Wednesday requested the American Civil Liberties Union to respond to Idaho’s emergency motion seeking to enforce the state’s ban against providing transgender drugs and surgeries to minors.

The ACLU is representing the families of two unnamed transgender minors who sued Idaho, claiming the state’s Vulnerable Child Protection Act is unconstitutional and has negatively affected the mental health of their teenage children.
