A woman in the US has filed a suit against her transgender child for transitioning from a male to a female without her consent.
According to the LA Times, Annmarie Calgaro filed a lawsuit Wednesday against her 17-year-old daughter and public health and school officials.
Apparently her daughter was being treated at Minneapolis health clinic and was given medication without her permission.
Calgaro’s suit against her daughter was announced on Wednesday, and is targeting a Minnesota state law that allowed her daughter to begin gender reassignment procedures without parental consent.
As a result, Calgaro and her lawyers are demanding that all therapies for her child be halted until they can petition a state court.
She referred to her child as her ‘son’ throughout a media conference .
She said: “Not only was I robbed of the opportunity to help my son make good decisions, but I also feel he was robbed of a key advocate in his life, his mother.”
The teen filed emancipation papers last year, but did terminate her mum’s parental rights
The documents state that the teenager’s mum “made it known to him that she no longer wishes to have any contact with him” and that she “knows where he is and has made no attempts to bring him home”.
The teenager also claims her mother did not report her as a runaway even six months after she fled the house.
Ms Calgaro said she was not opposed her child’s gender transition , but she wanted the child to “slow down”.
