The state of Arkansas has banned transgenderism, as we read in the Independent:
Transition care for transgender minors will be outlawed in Arkansas after the state senate voted on Tuesday to override Governor Asa Hutchinson’s veto of HB1570, a move that sparked immediate vows for legal retaliation from civil rights groups.
The bill, which effectively bans medical workers from providing hormone replacement therapy or gender-affirming surgeries to trans youth, was set to take effect after the senate successfully overrode the governor’s objections this week.
It’s the first law of its kind in the United States, a clear reflection of the anti-trans movement sweeping through conservative media outlets and states across the country.
Republican-led legislatures have sought to restrict transgender athletes from participating in school sports, denying funding to entities providing medical services for transgender patients and more in recent months, even as Republicans like Mr Hutchinson describe such measures as “extreme”.
