(FOX NEWS) - A Minnesota woman filed a lawsuit against her 17-year-old child, the county and a handful of other agencies after she claimed that her child was receiving transgender services without her permission.
Anmarie Calgaro says St. Louis County, St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services Director, Fairview Health Services, Park Nicollet Health Services, St. Louis County School District, Principal of the Cherry School treated her child as an emancipated minor, according to the lawsuit.
"Why wasn't I even notified? I feel that my constitutional rights have been stripped from me," Calgaro told reporters, according to KMSP-TV. "If this had been a child custody case, I would've had my day in court. I'm firmly committed to what is best for my son. I'm his mother, and he has always been and always will be welcome in our home."
The lawsuit claims that state law provides no way for Calgaro to challenge the emancipation status, which is a violation of her constitutional rights. She also alleges that her parental involvement had been “repeatedly circumvented.”
According to KMSP-TV, Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid Clinic advised the teen in 2015 that they were emancipated without a court order. No legal action had been taken to terminate Calgaro’s parental rights.
