GOP Arkansas governor continues to defend veto of transgender surgery ban

It’s not appropriate for children to be given medical intervention before they can fully comprehend the consequences, even if they think they are transgender. It’s ridiculous enough to have to defend this self-evident fact against Democrats, but now it’s a Republican too.

Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson appears to have completely flipped and joined the left in railing against conservatives for proposing what he calls “culture war bills,” TheBlaze reported. Hutchinson said Republicans’ limited government principles trump the issues, even when it involves giving drugs and surgery to gender-confused children.

“Just because you want to keep things as they have been, perhaps, you don’t need to use the instrument of the law,” he told Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” Sunday. “You don’t need to use the state to accomplish that purpose in every instance.”

Hutchison vetoed legislation that would have prevented doctors from prescribing medications or performing life-altering surgeries to children under 18. He said he believed that the culture needs to change from the churches, not through laws.

The Arkansas state legislature overturned his veto, however. Hutchinson asserted his objection was about limited government, but he cited similar laws he signed that addressed the gender issue.

“I signed two [bills] that I thought made sense,” he explained to Todd. “One was girls in sports, trying to protect women’s sports. The other one was supporting medical conscience, that doctors can claim a conscience reason if they want to deny a particular procedure, but they have to do emergency care. And so those are two bills that I signed,” he said.

“The third one was not well done,” Hutchinson continued. “It did not protect the youth. It interfered with the government getting into the lives of transgender youth, as well as their parents and the decisions that doctors made. And to me, it’s about compassion. But it is also about making, having the laws make sense in a limited role of government,” he said.

“And that’s the case that I made in the Washington Post column that as Republicans, we need to get back and ask the question, ‘Is this the appropriate role of government? Are we restraining ourselves?'”

Although the governor is correct that hearts need to change first, it’s also true that laws to protect the most vulnerable are a necessary function of government. Children who are gender-confused are given treatments that could permanently alter their lives and development. It isn’t just necessary to legislate on their behalf, it’s moral.

  1. Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

    1. He may be trying to score some points with the “woke” crowd in case he runs for a national office. there are rumors around here he might try a presidential run in 24.

      1. No thank you we do not need a nut job like him. We already have a stupid imbecile i n the white house who already ruined many young woman’s future. This creep should be in prison and not ruining our country. Biden/Harris Stan’s duo.

      2. It must be hard to resist the boatload of money they give for your support; I prefer to live without guilt. You can’t take it with you so what good is it to sell your soul to the devil

  2. Republicans who follow the Democrats do not share the goal and values of the real Republicans. This purge will be beneficial to the new Patriotic Party following President Trump in his counter-attack against the shadow conglomerate who complotted to rig his elections. Good Riddance.

  3. I can just see in the future these poor kids will be so confused that there’s going to be a lawsuits galore That they’re gonna file lawsuits against their parents for screwing up their life.

  4. You need to stay out of it governor Hutchinson if you really believe your own words. A foolish politician can no longer distinguish between right or wrong. If you don’t want the instrument of the law to accomplish that purpose then don’t use the instrument of the law to defeat that purpose. Government should stay out of using the instrument of the law to do either. We don’t need the government to tell us whether or not our child is a boy or a girl. If that person can’t buy a bottle of booze or vote until he or she is of a certain age, then we don’t need government to make decisions for us in any matter at least until we can buy a bottle of booze and vote. Then we will be old enough to make our own decisions and we will at least be old enough to vote that idiot out of office.

  5. One question why are the communist party fighting so hard to stop audits in az mi ga if the election was so legit? If you have nothing to hide you should say bring it on. But I guess there is alot to hide that’s why they fight so hard to cover it up. And then you have a rino in ga ratenburger who took a huge pay day from the communist party trying to block a real audit. People like him need prison time because he is as curupt as anybody can be. Same in az man are the communist fighting hard to stop an audit I bet the building and ballots will be burnt to the ground before it happens next week. Any takers? Plus we get our voice back this week😁🇺🇸🦅 frank speech . Com starts Monday😁😁😁 can’t be blocked by the communist fagbook,twitterqueer,apeazon,goobersmoocher, applehole, clinton network news, abc,cbs,fox,msnbc,msm, or the AP. Let freedom ring.god bless mike lindale for being an american.
