News Tech: Aug 25 (Reuters) – A federal appeals court on Thursday refused to revive Arkansas’s first-of-its-kind law prohibiting doctors from providing puberty blockers, hormones and surgery as part of gender transition treatment for minors.

The order means the state cannot enforce the ban while the legal challenge is ongoing.

A unanimous panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s order temporarily blocking the ban amid a legal challenge, finding there was “substantial evidence” that it “prohibits medical treatment that conforms with the recognized standard of care.” read more

“We are relieved for trans youth,” said Holly Dickson, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas, which sued the state on behalf of families challenging the ban. “Research shows that denying gender-affirming care to transgender youth contributes to depression, isolation, eating disorders, self-harm and suicide.”

President Joe Biden, a Democrat, in June signed an executive order directing federal health and education agencies to work to expand access to healthcare for transgender people in the face of new restrictions. read more
