Florida’s Ron DeSantis Supports a Ban on Transition Surgeries for Minors – Opinion

Think the Left has gone mad over losing national unfettered abortion? Roe v. WadeImagine how they will react to Ron DeSantis’ latest interview.

Governor DeSantis went on political commentator Lisa Boothe’s podcast, and said he would support a ban on transition surgeries for minors.

He’s not just hitting Disney and their lot and throwing them under the bus. He’s backing up over them.

“The Florida Department of Health has issued guidelines for treating gender dysmorphia, recommending against gender transition, puberty blockers, and hormones, but would you support a state law banning any of those medical interventions for children?” Boothe asked at one point of the podcast.

DeSantis responded in the affirmative and said that “gender-affirming care,” such as transitional surgeries, would be on the same footing as allowing a 12-year-old to get a tattoo — which is not permitted in the state.

“I would ban the — yeah, I would ban the sex change, the operations,” DeSantis said. “I think that it’s something that — you can’t get a tattoo if you’re 12 years old. When they say ‘gender-affirming care,’ what they mean, a lot of times, is you are really, you’re castrating a young boy, you’re sterilizing a young girl, you’re doing mastectomies for these very young girls.”

DeSantis once more stands on the right side in history when it comes to protecting human life. A 2015 U.S. Transgender Study found that about 10% of transgender women and 5% of men regret their decision to change and want to return to the place they were born. Many of the transgender people they speak to believe that this number is higher than it actually is, because many who have detransitioned are ashamed of their actions or afraid to share them with others. Governors like DeSantis and Arkansas’ Asa Hutchinson are aligning with parental rights, and not what the government or prevailing culture want to implement.

A parent’s rights organization called Genspect held a Zoom conference on March 12, the second worldwide “Detransition Awareness Day,” to discuss the subject of not only detransitioning, but reestablishing and affirming the parent’s right to care for their child, not force them into even more psychological and permanent physical trauma. A variety of countries logged in to the conference, including Brazil, Canada and New Zealand.

It was definitely more than what the Transgender Study confirmed.

Genspect is a parent-run organization that aims to slow down medical transitions in children and adolescents. This group is skeptical about the Gender-Affirming Care Model supported by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (American Medical Association), the American Academy of Pediatrics and other medical organizations.

“Affirmative” medical care is defined as treatment with puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones for those with gender dysphoria to transition to the opposite sex, and is often followed by gender reassignment surgery.

However, there is growing concern among many doctors and other healthcare professionals as to whether this is, in fact, the best way to proceed for those under aged 18, in particular, with several countries pulling back on medical treatment and instead emphasizing psychotherapy first.

This is from WebMD, a corporate medical arm that spoon feeds “popular” information. Although Legacy media attempted to ignore it, they are being forced to speak out. CBS’ 60 minutes Even though he did an episode on transgender youth healthcare, he also included a segment about detransitioning. It is an important step that is being taken in the right direction and is not being overlooked.

 

 

If DeSantis continues in this vein, he’ll have even more support from the parents of Florida and across the nation.
