‘Goal Is to Protect Children,’ Lead Sponsor of Arkansas’ Transgender Bill Says

Arkansas has just become the first state in the country to pass legislation protecting minors from being prescribed puberty blockers or gender-hormone treatments, or from receiving gender-change surgery.

Arkansas state Rep. Robin Lundstrum, the lead sponsor for the bill, joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to explain why the passage of the legislation is a victory for children and families. Lundstrum also explains why she thinks the bill has faced so much opposition from the political left. 

Also on today’s show, we talk with Heritage Foundation senior adviser and spokesperson Genevieve Wood about Major League Baseball’s decision to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta after the passage of the new election integrity law in Georgia. Wood also discusses a now-deleted Easter tweet from Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., and why the grocery store chain Publix is speaking out against “60 Minutes.” 

And as always, we’ll be crowning our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”

Enjoy the show!
