January 28, 2019 07:05 PM

(ABC 6 News)-- The Supreme Court ruling last Tuesday allowed the Trump Administration to enforce a policy that is keeping those from military service.

The court decided in a 5-4 vote that a transgender military ban would temporarily take effect.

Inclusivity speaker and activist, Ellen Krug joined us at 6:30 speaking about her personal story as the first transgender attorney in Iowa. The discussion led us to go more in-depth on the medical side of gender dysphoria. 

Nicole Russell also joined in on the conversation about the issue. She is a contributor with the Washington Examiner and The Federalist. Russell wrote an article that showed the other side to why the decision was made that would keep transgender persons from serving in the military.
