The woman is suing her daughter (“J.D.K.”) as well as those enabling her gender affirming treatments. Mom and her conservative-Catholic lawyer have intentionally used incorrect pronouns. Her daughter is emancipated under Minnesota Law which states:
Any minor who is living separate and apart from parents … who is managing personal financial affairs, regardless of the source or extent of the minor's income, may give effective consent to personal medical, dental, mental and other health services, and the consent of no other person is required.I have not had a chance to go through J.D.K.'s brief nor the docket. I will sometime tomorrow. Meanwhile, according to a press release:
Mommy is unlikely to endear herself to her daughter by attacking her dignity, claiming that she is not responsible for her gender identity. Nor will she make up much group by insisting that her daughter is her son. Moreover, according to Minnesota law, she has no right to be consulted — that ship has sailed.
I fail to see how this is not abuse of process. This is a smart, well-schooled (Harvard then Columbia) lawyer who lost his mind to superstition. It's a shame, really, that the girl has to suffer because of this ignorance and stupidity. Yet this is one of the Pope's favorite hobbies in spite of the fact that he has no training in social or medical science.
