Gov. Greg Abbott’s directive to investigate parents of transgender children has some parents worried. Karen Brooks Harper, Texas Tribune health and human services reporter, joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the children and parents who are concerned that seeking gender-affirming care constitutes child abuse and might mean family separation or even jail time. Her recent article is headlined “Transgender Texas kids are terrified after governor orders that parents be investigated for child abuse.”
