A county judge in Ohio reportedly issued a temporary injunction on the state’s law that protects individuals under 18 years old from undergoing transgender operations that can have significant and permanent effects on their lives.

The injunction will be in effect for two weeks or until a decision is made regarding a more comprehensive injunction against the law.

The legislation, known as the “Save Adolescents from Experimentation Act,” prohibits “gender-affirming” procedures, such as double mastectomies, for females who identify as boys.

It also forbids the administration of cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers to minors.

The legislation does not prohibit minors who were already prescribed puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones prior to its enactment from continuing their usage.

Unless a hearing for a preliminary injunction against it occurs before April 24, the law, which is scheduled to take effect on that date, will be temporarily suspended for two weeks.

The ACLU contested the law, asserting that it exhibited discriminatory characteristics.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, a member of the Republican party, expressed his anticipation for the eventual affirmation of the law.

The legislation was enacted by Republican legislators in January against the opposition of GOP Governor Mike DeWine.

The measure was sponsored by state Representative Gary Click (R), who expressed confidence that it would be sustained once the legal disputes were settled.

Over 20 states have enacted laws comparable to Ohio’s, and the majority of these laws have successfully withstood legal challenges.

The Supreme Court granted permission for an Idaho legislation safeguarding minors from transgender procedures to be implemented, even as legal proceedings against it continue.
