On Wednesday night Rev. Franklin Graham of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse urged Gov. Asa Hutchinson to sign H.B. 1570, the Save Adolescents From Experimentation (SAFE) Act.

This good bill by Rep. Robin Lundstrum (R – Springdale) and Sen. Alan Clark (R – Lonsdale) prohibits sex-reassignment procedures on children in Arkansas.

The bill also prevents funding of sex-reassignment procedures performed on children.

Gender-reassignment surgeries can leave children sterilized and scarred for life.

Medical researchers do not know the long term effects these procedures and therapies can have on kids. That is why many people equate them with experimenting on children.

Rev. Graham asked that “God would give the Governor of Arkansas a thick skin” and that the governor would do the right thing for Arkansans.
