Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently announced that he would back any bill that crossed his desk which would seek to ban transgender surgeries for children.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis, asked this week if he would sign a bill banning transgender surgeries for minors, answered succinctly, “That would be something that I would sign for sure.” He also targeted “woke” corporations, asserting, “They tend to genuflect before whatever the most recent left-wing cause is.”
In an interview with The Daily Caller, DeSantis was asked, “Is Florida interested in passing the kind of legislation banning transgender surgeries for minors?”
“I’m very much opposed to chemical castration of minors,” DeSantis replied. “I think that that’s a really, really— I think, honestly, I didn’t even know that this existed until a few years ago. So that would be something that I would sign for sure.”
“Earlier this year, Florida lawmakers introduced legislation to ban transgender surgeries and procedures for children, titled the Youth Gender and Sexual Identity Act, but the bill died in a Professions & Public Health Subcommittee on April 30,” The Daily Caller noted.
If DeSantis did end up banning transgender surgeries for children, it would be the first such bill to pass in the country and a massive victory for American families.
