Some Republicans aren’t willing to take a stand on the most important of issues.
They won’t even stand up to the abuse of children by radical progressives.
Tucker Carlson gave a weak Republican governor a huge reality check.
The majority of children who identify as transgender during their youth grow out of it by the time they reach adulthood.
Studies have found that from 65 to 94 percent of children diagnosed which gender dysmorphia eventually ceased to identify as transgender.
Yet radical leftists want to allow children by age eight, who can’t legally get a tattoo, to be able to take irreversible puberty blockers.
But Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson vetoed a bill passed by the Arkansas legislature that would prohibit doctors from prescribing puberty-blocking drugs.
Hutchinson went on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and tried to explain his veto but got slammed by Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
“Well, the legislature in Arkansas recently passed a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing so-called puberty blockers, heavy-duty hormones to children who believe they are transgender. The law also bans surgeons from physical castration of children,” Carlson opened by saying, “But the Governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson vetoed that bill on Monday. Legislatures in Arkansas just voted to override that veto, which brings us to where we are right now. Asa Hutchinson is the Governor of Arkansas, and he joins us to talk about this story.”
Carlson then questioned the governor on why he could be “publicly as pro-choice on the question of chemical castration of children.”
Hutchinson justified himself claiming that while he was opposed to sex reassignment, he wouldn’t stop puberty blockers, saying, “If this had been a bill that simply prohibited chemical castration, I would have signed the bill. But Tucker, as you know, this bill was overbroad. It was extreme. It went far beyond what you just said. And I made it clear that if this was about prohibiting procedures, sex reassignment surgery, absolutely I would have signed that bill. But this again, is the first law in the nation that invokes the state between medical decisions, parents who consent to that, and the decision of the patient and so this goes way too far, and in fact, it does even have a grandfather clause that those young people that are under hormonal treatments, they have to be cut off from it.”
“If I could just correct you for a second. This is chemical castration, of course, if you stop puberty and suppress the sex hormones, you’re chemically castrating someone. So our description was correct,” Carlson said.
“But let me just ask you, I mean, there are all kinds of — we’re talking about minors — children here and there are all kinds of things in Arkansas, kids in every state are not allowed to do: get married, drink a beer, get a tattoo,” he added.
Hutchinson said that the government shouldn’t get involved in the issue. But government limits the use of harmful medical treatments every day, especially on minors.
“You’re allowing — you vetoed a bill that would have protected children, not adults, children, to whom a different standard applies from a life-altering permanent procedure that has effects we can only guess that but the early indication is they’re very serious and very negative in some cases.” Carlson noted.
Arkansas state legislature agreed with Tucker Carlson and voted overwhelmingly to override Hutchinson’s veto.
