THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from the state of Wisconsin on its law banning publicly-funded hormone therapy for trans women inmates. A federal judge quickly stepped in to block the law after it passed. Later, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the law stating it was cruel and unusual punishment – a violation of the a U.S. Constitution. That decision prompted Wisconsin to appeal to the Supreme Court.
Since the court just ruled on the matter, there isn’t much more information to share at this point. However, I’d like to point out the importance of the Supreme Court when it comes to fixing anti-trans and other backward laws passed by the states. If you don’t vote on election day, the Supreme Court will reflect the views of those that do.

Thank you! 🙂
They allow hormonal therapy for transwomen but still put transwomen prisoners into male prisons. Tell how are transwomen not going to be sexually abused there?
We don’t know if that is the case for Wisconsin. The Supreme Court can only rule on cases brought before them.
