Judge temporarily blocks Idaho law banning gender-affirming care 


A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked an Idaho state law that would ban gender-affirming care for minors, just days before it was slated to take effect.

The law in question would make it a felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, for medical professionals to provide certain medications and treatments to minors “for the purpose of attempting to alter the appearance of or affirm the child’s perception of the child’s sex if that perception is inconsistent with the child’s biological sex.”
