Obama-Appointed Judge Rules State Officials Don’t Have To Change Birth Certificates To Match People’s Gender Identity
(Worthy News) – A federal judge ruled Thursday that Kansas government officials are no longer required to change a person’s birth certificate to reflect their gender identity, according to the court document.
District Judge Daniel Crabtree, an Obama appointee, ruled that the constitution does not obligate state officials to change a person’s listed gender on their birth certificate, according to the ruling. The ruling reopened Foster v. Anderson, a 2018 case settled by a consent agreement that said state officials were required to alter birth certificates to match a person’s preferred gender, according to the Topeka Capital-Journal.
“The court didn’t reach this conclusion — the parties reached it, and then jointly asked the court to accept their conclusion,” Crabtree wrote in the ruling. “To say it simply, the quoted portion of the Consent Judgment doesn’t represent a reasoned conclusion drawn by a court.” [ Source: Daily Caller (Read More…) ]
