Little Rock, AR— On April 6th, 2021, the Arkansas state legislature voted to override a veto on HB1570, putting it into law. This came with little surprise, as nearly 3/4 of the body voted for the initial legislation prior to the veto. Organizations like the ACLU have already prepared to litigate the bill, said to be one of the most harmful anti-trans bills in modern history. HB1570 bans transgender youth from receiving gender affirming medical services and prevents medical practitioners from providing, or even referring, them.
