In the Biden era, where a transsexual at Health and Human Services encourages parents to mutilate their children, no parent can expect to be untouched by the agenda being foisted upon the Untied States. With his latest veto of a common sense children protection bill, Asa Hutchinson has showed what side he’s on, and it’s not child protection.

Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson announced Monday that he has sided with far-left activists and chosen to veto HB 1570, which would ban the use of puberty blockers, hormone replacement procedures, and gender transition surgery on young children.
