BREAKING: Arkansas has become the first state to ban health care for trans youth.— ACLU (@ACLU) March 29, 2021
So this means that if a young dude who thinks he’s a girl has a gall bladder infection, they can’t be treated? What about if they broke their arm?
Oh, so they can receive healthcare. The hospitals just aren’t allowed to mutilate children’s bodies. Oh that’s a bit different, isn’t it?
Lila Rose accurately points out:
Puberty blockers for prepubescent youth, mastectomies on teen girls’ healthy breasts, and castration of young boys is not healthcare. It’s insane we have to say this. This isn’t “care,” it’s malpractice. No healthcare has been banned whatsoever. Fix your blatant misinformation.— Lila Rose (@LilaGraceRose)
God forbid we have an actual discussion or dialogue about this. No, the ACLU has to jump to scare tactics. And the media follows suit.
Doubling down on hyperbole, Chase Strangio, deputy director for transgender justice at the American Civil Liberties Union LGBT & HIV Project, called the bill “the single most extreme anti-trans law to ever pass through a state legislature.”
And then he said, get this, “I really worry about the fact that we’re just a few votes away from some of the most sweeping and damaging and potentially genocidal laws from ever being passed.”
Well, excuse Captain Hyperbole over there. His edibles were a little strong this morning.
In reality, Arkansas has become the first state to ban experimental elective intervention on healthy minors that may leave them scarred, unable to function and sterile with dependency on medical treatment for life, recognizing they cannot consent to adult decisions. There. Fixed it for ya’.
