  • Michigan legislators are weighing legislation that would classify gender transitions for minors as first-degree child abuse.
  • Some Republican-led states have taken steps to restrict or stop transgender procedures for children. Those procedures can include things such as therapy reinforcing a minor’s transgender identity, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgeries.
  • Democrats still control Michigan, but Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon is locked in a tight race with Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
