Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced on March 25 that he signed into law Senate Bill 289, which is entitled the “Medical Ethics and Diversity Act.”
This means that the state that goes by the nickname “The Land of Opportunity” will grant medical workers the “right” to refuse providing healthcare or assist someone because of the worker’s “religious, moral or ethical” beliefs. That could open the door for LGBTQ people to face denial from life-saving services from doctors, nurses, or EMTs.
To all the non cis gendered people out there, to quote "they were the best of times, they were the worst of times." With all the state efforts to control our bodies, there is a bill to eliminate all these oppressions. Just two Democrats and the filibuster are holding it back.
