The Supreme Court made a decision about a law in Idaho that stops transgender teenagers from getting certain medical care.

The court said the law can be used in most of Idaho, but not against the two teenagers who were fighting against it. Some of the judges didn’t agree with this decision.

Last year, a judge said Idaho couldn’t use this law while they were still talking about it in court. But now, the Supreme Court says part of the law can be used. The rest of the law is still on hold until they figure everything out.

This law stops teenagers from getting some kinds of medical help, like medicine to stop puberty or hormone therapy. The judges said the lower court was too strict by stopping the whole law from being used.

Some people think this is a good step, but others don’t agree. They say it’s not fair for transgender teenagers who need this kind of medical care.

This is part of a bigger issue because more than 20 states have laws like this. The Supreme Court will probably talk about this more in the future. They have to decide if these laws are fair or not.
