A judge in the US state of Georgia has ruled that its ban on gender-affirming care for transgender minors can resume.
On Tuesday (5 September), District Judge Sarah Geraghty put her previous order blocking the ban on hold.
This was after the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals allowed Alabama to enforce a similar restriction last month. Alabama can now implement a ban on the use of puberty blockers and hormones to treat transgender children.
