A Minnesota woman will go to the Supreme Court to sue her transgender daughter to prevent her from receiving gender confirmation surgery.
Anmarie Calgaro claims that medical providers and school educators violated her parental rights by allowing her daughter to begin the gender transition process. The drama began in 2015 when Clagaro’s daughter moved out of the house and became legally emancipated from her mother. The following year, Calgaro sued her daughter to block her from undergoing gender transition.
Surprising nobody, Calgaro misgendered her daughter in interviews, testimony and court documents.

Calgaro eventually lost her lawsuit, and a court of appeals upheld the original ruling that she could not block her daughter’s transition. Though her daughter is now over 18–giving Calgaro no legal right to determine her medical care–she will take her case to the Supreme Court.
Erick Kaardal, a lawyer for Calgaro, called the situation a parents’ “worst nightmare.” He added: “Unbelievably, Minnesota statutes authorize a county to deem a minor ’emancipated’ to receive welfare payments to live on their own and allow medical providers to void parental input if it determines the minor is living apart from the parents and is managing his or her own personal financial affairs.”
The Supreme Court will decide whether or not to hear the case this fall.
The fact that she is continuing the case even though the daughter is a legal adult means that this is not about her daughter. This was always about trying to wipe out the ability of a minor to emancipate themselves and make decisions. If it was’t about that, there is no reason to keep the case going once the child is over 18 because the parents right to make medical decisions lapses anyway.

The only valid case in this matter is the “Mother* is a nut case….
This mother is mentally unstable and her case should be denied as her adult daughter has the perfect right to make her own decisions.
CHRIXTIAN TRASH OBVIOUSLY. I AM SURE HER “DAUGHTER” HATES HER. THE SUPREME COURT WASTE IT’S TIME ON THIS….. REPUBLICAN IDIOTS.

fairly certain there’s a far-right sncmbag organization behind this action this isn’t about this particular case there is no jurisdiction over an 18 yo. it’s about future cases where kids try to emancipate from their “parents* because their parents are either anti-Gay or anti-trans

I think the mother have rights to stop her daughter transition only if the daughter under 18. Sadly, I don’t believe minors have rights to transition. However, if daughter is over 18, she’s have the right to transition.
I don’t think it’s sad that minors don’t have the right to transition. Some decisions should definitely be made when a person is an adult, teenagers are still figuring out who they are as people
The daughter was allowed to emancipate. That means that the courts saw a reason the kid should not be with that mother.
@Brian – And yet puberty hits girls as young as 9 and men as young as 11. You don’t need to be 18 to figure out if what’s in your pants matches your identity.
