Arkansas State Legislature Overrides Governor’s Veto of Sex Reassignment Legislation

Some very interesting events have taken place in Arkansas over the last week on the transgender front.

State legislators had passed a bill in both chambers to render some transgender procedures illegal effective April 30.

When the bill went to Governor Asa Hutchinson, a Republican, he refused to pass the bill and vetoed it.

That veto, however, was overridden by the state legislature, dealing a crippling blow to both the governor and child transgender advocates.

Protecting Children

Discussing transgenders is about as hot potato as you can touch these days.

Without going into my personal opinions on the matter, I think most of us would agree that putting a child under the knife before he or she has truly had time to develop is just wrong.

We hear horror stories of children when underwent transgender procedures when they were younger, and really did not know any better, only to regret when they came to realize that as an adult, they did not feel the same way they did when they were eight, 10, or even 16 years old.

That is the basis of this law, to protect children from these extreme procedures… to allow them to develop before making such a drastic decision.

After Hutchinson shot down the law, the State Senate and State House overrode the veto by votes of 25-8 and 71-24 respectively.

Even so, Hutchinson tried to defend his stance, stating, “The bill is overbroad, extreme and does not grandfather those young people who are currently under hormone treatment.

“This is an example of where restraint is better than overbroad actions.”

Tucker Carlson questioned if corporations had reached out to Hutchinson to influence his decision, something he denied…

Family Council, an Arkansas-based group, disagreed, stating that the new law “prohibits sex-reassignment procedures on children in Arkansas.

“The bill also prevents funding of sex-reassignment procedures performed on children. Gender-reassignment surgeries can leave children sterilized and scarred for life.

“Medical researchers do not know the long-term effects these procedures and therapies can have on kids. That is why many people equate them with experimenting on children.”

Hutchinson is clearly trying to grow his brand since he will be out of office come 2022, but this is no way to do it.

With today’s conservatives and this being such a hot topic, he is probably getting his last taxpayer checks for quite some time.

Human smugglers are aggressively using Facebook to exploit Biden’s border crisis - and largely getting away with it.

Instead of focusing so much on censoring conservatives, Big Tech should work to stop real threats like these.
