In a lawsuit filed by Lambda Legal, the American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU of Oklahoma, and the law firm Jenner & Block LLP, a group of five families with transgender adolescents and Dr. Shauna Lawlis of OU Health assert SB 613 unjustly and unfairly targets transgender youth for discrimination and interferes with parents’ rights to make decisions about their children’s health care, which is at its apex when aligned with the youth’s interests. SB 613 bans the provision of gender-affirming medical treatment for transgender youth and threatens providers who violate the law with a felony conviction and discipline from their professional licensing boards.
