Arkansas becomes first U.S. state to ban treatments for transgender youth

Transgender youth health care denied in ArkansasArkansas on Tuesday became the first U.S. state to ban certain types of treatment to transgender youth, overriding a veto by Governor Asa Hutchinson and inviting lawsuits from civil rights groups that have vowed to stop it.

The law threatens any healthcare professional who provides puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones or gender-affirming surgery to minors with losing their medical license and opens them up to lawsuits from patients who later regret their procedures.

At least 16 other states are considering similar legislation, which transgender advocates have attacked, saying that cutting off badly needed care to adolescents would inevitably lead to more suicides.

TVNL Comment:  This is a disgrace, as are all the similar laws being considered across the US.  Bigotry is the official calling card of the Republicans. What ever happened to the goal of liberty and justice for all?
