    Arkansas became the first state to pass a bill prohibiting doctors from providing gender-affirming medical care to transgender youth following a vote in the state Senate on Monday.

    HB 1570, the "Save Adolescents From Experimentation (SAFE) Act," prohibits trans youth from accessing health care and insurance coverage for gender-affirming care. The bill passed 28-7 in the state Senate. The state House passed the bill earlier this month.

    ... The legislation now goes to Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson's desk for signature.

    Arkansas? governor on Monday vetoed a ban on gender-affirming medical care for transgender youths, calling the legislation a ?vast government overreach? and a ?product of the cultural war in America.?

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) said that if signed into law, the bill would interfere with physicians and parents ?as they deal with some of the most complex and sensitive matters involving young people.?

    ... Republican lawmakers in at least 17 other states have introduced similar bans on medical treatments for transgender minors, despite opposition from major pediatric and psychiatric organizations.
