Department Of Justice Wants To End Arkansas’s Trans Health Care Ban

The Biden administration filed a second legal brief yesterday asking a court to declare an anti-trans law unconstitutional, this time to overturn Arkansas’s ban on gender-affirming health care for trans youth.

“A state law that specifically denies a limited class of people the ability to receive medically necessary care from their healthcare providers solely on the basis of their sex assigned at birth violates the Equal Protection Clause,” says a brief from the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed to support an ACLU lawsuit. “These restrictions explicitly target transgender people.”
