KAYLEIGH MCENANY (HOST): When you look at this, Texas state law does not ban gender-affirming care. That's what they call it. It's a euphemism. They don't ban it for children in your state, but you're alleging in a memo released in February of last year that child abuse laws might apply when it comes to minors here. How is that so? 

KEN PAXTON (GUEST): Yeah. We have done the research and we think that we have child abuse laws that do apply to this and I don't think that it's a far stretch to say that if you're making a decision for a child about their reproductive life going forward and it's something that they cannot undo, whether it's through chemical or through surgery -- that, under state law, I think is child abuse and we certainly put the cases in there to back it up.
