Will Texas officials be able to save a 7-year-old from his mother's forced transgender plans?

The following is an excerpt from Blaze Media's Capitol Hill Brief email newsletter:

The case of 7-year-old James Younger from Texas, who may be court-ordered into a gender transition forced by his mother despite his father’s petitions, has grabbed national attention and generated national uproar. Public officials from the Lone Star State have since announced efforts to address the grave situation and others like it on the public policy front.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said Wednesday night that the matter is being evaluated by both the state attorney general’s office and the Department of Family and Protective Services. At the same time, Texas legislator Matt Krause said that he’s planning to introduce legislation “that prohibits the use of puberty blockers in these situations for children under 18.” In Washington, Congressman Chip Roy asked the Justice Department, National Institutes for Health, and the Office of National Drug Control Policy to look into the matter.

The jury’s decision in the case made headlines earlier this week; however, the judge’s final ruling was delayed until this afternoon. We’ll soon know the details of the boy’s fate, and then we’ll find out whether any of the interventions will be enough to spare him from his mother’s plans.
