Arkansas governor vetoes bill Which Could Prohibit gender-confirming Remedies for transgender youth

"That is really a government overreach."

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoed a bill Monday that would have prohibited gender-confirming remedies for transgender youths from the nation.

The action bars physicians from providing gender-affirming wellness care to transgender minors, such as hormones, puberty blockers and transition-related surgeries.

Hutchinson reported he had an problem with the bill which could affect patients that are taking remedies.

"That is really a government overreach," he said in the news conference. "You have started to allow lawmakers interfere with health care and specify a standard for laws overriding health care. The state shouldn't assume to jump to each moral health choice."
