White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki took to Twitter on Wednesday to express her disapproval at a slew of bills passed in Oklahoma and Arizona to protect children from harmful surgeries, to protect women's sports, and to protect the unborn.
"Today, four extreme and harmful bills were signed into law in Oklahoma and Arizona, three targeting transgender youth (2 AZ, 1 OK) and one reproductive health care (AZ). These laws are unacceptable and we won’t stop fighting for justice and equality," wrote Psaki.
In Arizona, Governor Doug Ducey signed SB 1165 and SB 1138 into law on Wednesday. The first one requires students to play on sports teams that match their biological sex. The latter bill bans gender reassignment surgeries on those under 18.
Oklahoma passed a similar sports bill on Wednesday. The "Save Women’s Sports Act, or SB 2, also requires students to play on teams that match their biological sex.
