In 2021, Oklahoma banned changing sex on birth certificates. Now, an appeals court has revived a lawsuit against this ban.

From The Epoch Times. A federal appeals court on June 18 revived a lawsuit against Oklahoma’s prohibition on changing the sex listed on birth certificates.

Do you want state prayer alerts?


The prohibition, which came from an executive order issued by Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, “purposefully discriminates on the basis of transgender status and sex,” a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit said, overruling the 2023 dismissal of the case by a lower court.

U.S. Circuit Judge Carolyn McHugh, writing for the panel, said that because “cisgender people” still have birth certificates that reflect their “gender identity” but transgender people do not, the policy has a disparate impact that “indicates discriminatory intent.”

Oklahoma officials had contended there was no disparate impact because nobody, regardless of their identity, can amend the sex on their birth certificate. …

The suit was brought in 2022 by three people who say their gender has changed and that the sex on the birth certificates should change accordingly, alleging violations of their Fourteenth Amendment rights, or equal protection and due process. …

U.S. District Judge John Broomes threw out the case in 2023, concluding that the policy “did not impair the ability of transgender people to express their gender identity or compel them to speak any message.”

While the Tenth Circuit panel reversed part of that ruling, it upheld the part dealing with due process claim. “To assert a substantive due process claim, Plaintiffs needed to allege that their involuntary disclosures amount to state action. They failed to do so,” Judge McHugh said. …

Come on America!!! Future generations are going to laugh at how we are allowing Satan to affect our culture. How ridiculous are we going to get? Males in women’s sports? Boys in girls locker rooms? Changing birth certificates?
Let’s just be blunt about this.. If we say we are believers in the Bible we CANNOT support this current administration.. plain and simple!!
Father we lift up Gov. Stitt before your throne and pray his support from other politicians would multiply. We declare and decree that the idiots who are professing these ridiculous laws would be replaced by followers of you. Father we rejoice at how the world will see your move in our land as we proclaim America Shall Be Saved !!!
All in our precious JESUS name and by the power of his blood we pray and believe!! Hallelujah
