Arkansas GOP overturns governor’s VETO of transgender surgery bill

The Arkansas state legislature voted to enact a ban on chemical and surgical sex change treatments and surgeries for transgender youth in the state on Tuesday, overriding a veto from Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson. 

The Republican-led legislature overwhelmingly supported the measure in a 25-8 vote with 2 excused.

Hutchinson stated he vetoed the measure on Monday after calling it an example of “vast government overreach.”

He added, “If the bill were to become law, it would create “new standards of legislative interference with physicians and parents as they deal with some of the most complex and sensitive matters involving young people.”

The state legislature override of the veto is intended to protect children from irreversible decisions they could grow to regret. Opponents of the bill claim the measure is discriminatory.

Arkansas is not alone in the legal battle over transgender issues. Sixteen states nationwide have or are considering similar legislation according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

A similar legal battle is taking place regarding transgender athletes. The governor signed a recent bill requiring athletes to participate in sports alongside their biological gender.

“I think it undermined women’s sports to have biological males to compete,” Hutchinson noted.

The battle regarding transgender issues among minors serves as a hotly debated topic. The Biden administration also selected Rachel Levine, a transgender woman, as the first openly transgender federal official.

        1. Couldn’t agree more…will someone do something about Biden… he’s destroying America… he’s made very bad decisions putting our country in danger… impeach the mother f..ker… he’s not keeping the country safe… treason…liar liar liar about everything! He should be in prison…get him n fauci out of the country…may God bless America

          1. He could be impeached but we do not have strong Republicans in Washington, most of them are RINOs.

        2. Amen brother I 💯 percent believe there is a god now an has always been GOD this would be an ABOMINATION to GOD.This I BELIEVE in… 💯 Percent.. AMEN AN AMEN

          1. Donald Brown…We all need to say our prayers daily. I pray daily that Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, and their h*e*a*t*h*e*n corrupt buddies in Congress and elsewhere, their h*e*a*t*h*e*n corrupt, conniving financiers, and their h*e*a*t*h*e*n corrupt conniving biased buddies in big media and big tech all catch the coronavirus with a terminal result. Or a good term limiting heart attack, stroke, etc.

          1. The world started laughing at us the minute Chin joe was elected. Everyone sees him as a weak leader and some not even a leader at all. Putin put him in his place when he offered to debate with him. Putin knew that he would walk all over him. H*ll, dementia joe can’t even remember his name and he is sinking America.

          2. How can they not be? Even Putin seems to be on the Conservatives side. We can use all the help we can get. The Democrats want to turn us into Communists, wonder if Putin is amazed????? Putin knows that Biden is only a puppet for the Democrats.

  2. When are the people of OUR country going to ban these dam freaks outright, the ONLY ones that want them to exist are the freaks themselves !!!! I hear that France loves their kind !!!

    1. Randy,
      Maybe we should suggest that IF they want to play in SPORTS, Then France would welcome them with open arms.

  3. This will probably end up in the Supreme Court one day. Common sense would dictate that government should not be involved in issues between parents and children. A spur of the moment rash decision could end up ruining many lives permanently.

    1. there should be a certain age , then see a doctor that specilize in just that be under treatment to make sure the kid wants it done or the mom and dad, I have four great sons I wanted a girl but not that way, once its done she will be made fun of and mentally a child cannot understand what they have to go threw
      Government should mine there on business, just like all the money they have set aside for this and pay for illegals
      American is going to hell with things like this and we pay for it

  4. Children do not make decisions for themselves. Overturning this veto was the right thing to do. Really don’t know what this Governor was thinking about when he vetoed the bill. He can BS all he wants about parents and doctors advice, this was just a dumb veto.

  5. Out of hatred of Donald Trump both Biden and Harris have created more problems than they have solved.

  6. Remember, this is Obama whispering into Bidens ear too. All this hatred and corruption. He is just like Farrakhnan. But Obama does it silently to where no one hears him.

  7. We have the equivalent of moe larry and curly running the country. Only difference is they are named Biden harris and pelosi. No disrespect meant to moe larry Or curly

  8. YES….this is a personal choice not meant for our tax dollars to pay for. Nothing wrong with your choice it’s just not a government issue.

  9. Arkansas GOP did the right thing. There is a physical difference in strength..it is what it is… maybe it is time to add a transgender category?

  10. No Children, Parents or doctors should be making these decisions about doing these operations or pumping drugs into children. Its not been studied as to the long term effects, but there is a large body of evidence that is growing that is finding a lot of regret for people who have done this. Its not safe and it can damage people for life. It is basically mutilation. There are too many doctors who are dong this that advocate it, where is the oath that says do no harm? Yet you can’t prove you aren’t doing harm.

  11. children up to 18 should NOT be allowed to transgender themselves with help from pervert physicians ………Most kids that age are still immature…….when they are adults they can destroy their lives if they want to..

  12. Transgender is sooooo WRONG !!
    America MUST get on her knees and BEG for God’s forgiveness OR. GOD WILL HAVE TO APOLOGIZE TO SODOM AND GOMORRAH!!
    If we refuse forgiveness then expect the FULL FORCE OF GOD’S JUDGMENT !!

  13. Let’s just call em as we see em. Sleepy Joe, Harris, & Pelosi all should be relieved of office. That or jailed for treason. Stupidity isn’t against the law. Nothing has been done for the people. What’s worse is that it was not done on purpose.
