Arkansas Prevents Trans Minors From Being Treated For Sex Change

Arkansas prevents trans minors from being treated for sex change. The legislation goes ahead after the assembly overrides the governor’s veto.

Arkansas became the first US state to ban sex-change medical treatments for transgender minors on Tuesday , after the state General Assembly (Parliament) overruled the governor’s veto. The new legislation prevents trans minors from receiving hormonal therapies and other medical treatments, as well as surgeries, for their sex change.

The proposal was approved last month by the Republican-controlled Arkansas Legislature and was vetoed.on Monday by the governor of the state, the conservative Asa Hutchinson, who considered the text “out of place” and “a product of the culture war” in the US. This Tuesday, the General Assembly annulled Hutchinson’s veto, in votes that remained 71 to 24 in the Lower House and 25 to 8 in the Senate.

Biden, in the Oval Office, signs his first orders. Biden will allow transsexuals to serve in the military again. Republicans in 17 US states have presented a series of proposals to restrict access to medical therapy for transgender children and adolescents .

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU, in English) announced on its Twitter account that it is preparing a lawsuit against the Arkansas law, because, it stressed, such treatments save lives and its prohibition could have “devastating” consequences and in some fatal cases.

“This decision ignores dozens of local physicians, national medical experts, as well as trans youth and their parents,” added the ACLU, warning it will be “relentless” in advocating for the rights of transgender youth in Arkansas.
