Texas Supreme Court Drops Huge 8-1 Ruling – Major Blow to the Left’s Holy Grail

In recent years, red states have passed laws targeting some of the left’s fattest sacred cows. Liberals have pitched fits over these laws, which have gone a long way in protecting families and children. Despite all their complaining, Democrats appear to be on the wrong side of the issue, as most voters agree with the red state laws.

But that hasn’t stopped Democrats from waging an all-out war to undermine states’ rights. They have dragged states to court to reverse many of these laws—putting children in jeopardy.

One such case went all the way to the highest court in the Lone Star state. The issue at hand would affect many children and their futures. The court just issued its decision. This will not go over well for many progressive advocates.

From The Washington Examiner:
The Texas Supreme Court declined to change a state law banning transgender healthcare for youths on Friday, blocking a legal challenge in an 8-1 ruling…

“We conclude the Legislature made a permissible, rational policy choice to limit the types of available medical procedures for children, particularly in light of the relative nascency of both gender dysphoria and its various modes of treatment and the Legislature’s express constitutional authority to regulate the practice of medicine,” Justice Rebeca Aizpuru Huddle wrote in the court’s decision.

The Texas law prevents minors who identify as transgender from accessing hormone therapies, puberty blockers, and transition surgeries.

The Texas Supreme Court voted 8-1 to uphold the state’s age limit ban on transgender procedures for minors. This is a huge win for residents who seek to safeguard the well-being of children. Conservatives have supported the law as a way of protecting parental rights. And it strikes a massive blow in the left’s transgender agenda.

Proponents of the ban argue that children are too young to make life-altering decisions. Growing evidence suggests that medical interventions like hormone treatments and surgeries carry significant risks. The Texas Supreme Court’s ruling reflects this growing concern. This is consistent with Texas lawmakers who want to protect children from making irreversible choices they may regret later.

Texas has scored major wins for conservative values in recent years. It was one of the first states to outright ban abortions. And it has fought the Biden administration, which is trying to undermine states’ abortion laws by mailing “abortion pills” through the mail. Texas has also struck back against Biden’s open border policy, slowing down the left’s attempt to import millions of illegal voters into the country.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Texas Supreme Court upheld the state law banning transgender healthcare for youths in an 8-1 ruling.
  • The law prevents minors from accessing hormone life-altering procedures that could ruin their futures.
  • This comes as many red states pass laws banning transgender procedures on children.
