Judge Allows Missouri Ban on Transgender Treatments

A victory in protecting kids from aggressive transition “care”.

A law in Missouri banning so-called transgender care for minors can now take effect after a judge denied a preliminary injunction challenging it. In a two-page order, Missouri Circuit Judge Steven Ohmer wrote that the injunction, which was brought by the ACLU, lacked sufficient evidence to delay the legislation: “The science and medical evidence is conflicting and unclear. Accordingly, the evidence raises more questions than answers.” 

Activists claim that the science in favor of transgender “care” is settled. It’s not true. Thankfully this judge was willing to say it out loud. This legislative push came as part of an investigation into the transgender clinic at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. In February, a whistleblower alleged that the clinic had started transitioning more than 600 children between 2020 and 2022. In some cases, puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones were prescribed after just two one-hour visits.  

In summary, the threat is real, the “science” is false, and children’s lives are at stake.
