Several members of the United States women's national team wore athletic tape on their wrists with "Protect Trans Kids" written on it during a soccer game Wednesday in Frisco, Texas, in a protest against that state's governor.

As reported by ESPN, the wristbands worn during Wednesday's SheBelieves Cup game against Iceland in Frisco, Texas, were a protest against a letter Texas governor Greg Abbott sent to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
