A federal court judge is considering issuing an injunction to halt Georgia’s new transgender health law until a trial can determine if it’s constitutional. That law prohibits healthcare professionals from performing certain medical procedures on transgender children. The plaintiffs in this case, five parents of transgender children, say this law hurts them, so they want that injunction quickly. After the two-day hearing ended, the judge says she needs time to process everything she heard. “This law is incredible overreach on the part of the state. It intrudes on the private medical decisions and into families’ lives in a way that’s unconstitutional and outrageous, and it needs to be blocked,” said attorney Beth Littrell.
