Law Banning Transgender Medical Care for Arkansas Youth Sent to Governor's Desk

Apr 1, 2021

A proposed measure to ban transgender minors in Arkansas from receiving gender-affirming health care, and penalizing medical providers who attempt to deliver it, was approved Monday by the state legislature. The bill now sits on Governor Asa Hutchinson's desk awaiting his signature. Northwest Arkansas family practice physician Dr. Stephanie Ho, who treats transgender youth, says if enacted, the law will cause harm.
