Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.9

Texas Governor Greg Abbot directed an investigation by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services into several “so-called ‘sex change’ procedures.” Governor Abbot clarified it is already against state law to subject minors to a wide variety of elective procedures that alter a child’s gender. Texas attorney general Ken Paxton said gender altering of minors should be considered child abuse under existing state law. Jaime Masters, commissioner of the DFPS in Texas wrote the genital mutilation of a child in a reassignment surgery is child abuse.
