DeSantis Pledges to Protect Minors from Gender Transitions: ‘It’s Mutilation’

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has reaffirmed his commitment to fighting gender transition procedures for minors, calling it “wrong to mutilate minors.” This stance comes as his administration prepares to appeal a federal judge’s decision that struck down a 2023 Florida law prohibiting such medical interventions for children.

According to Breitbart,

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) recently defended his administration’s decision to appeal the ruling of a federal judge who struck down a 2023 Florida law that blocked “gender-affirming care” — leftist speak for surgeries, hormones, and puberty blockers — for minors who believe they are the wrong sex, expressing confidence that it will be overturned because the law is rooted in “truth” and has already been decided on appeal.

A reporter asked DeSantis who he can justify using taxpayer dollars to appeal the ruling, as a federal judge struck down the state’s law designed to protect the innocence of children.

According to the Associated Press, Senior Judge Robert Hinkle said, “Transgender people are constitutionally entitled to the legitimate treatment they need and, quoting the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., compared those who oppose it to those who were once against equality for minorities and women.”

DeSantis, however, made it clear that the Sunshine State is not done fighting:

“It’s wrong to mutilate minors. It is wrong. It is wrong to perform a sex change on a 16-year-old. You’re not allowed to get a tattoo, but somehow, you can have your privates cut off. Give me a break,” DeSantis said, pointing out that the case has “already been decided by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.”

“They upheld Alabama’s law, which was almost identical to Florida’s law,” he said, expressing confidence that it will be “reversed.”

“There’s no question it’ll be reversed. Think about it. When the Founding Fathers were creating the Constitution, and when the first Congress passed the Bill of Rights, or even when they pass the Reconstruction amendments in the 1860s, do you think a single person involved in that thought that there was a constitutional right to do this genital mutilation?” he asked, noting that it is obvious that states can protect children.

DeSantis blasted critics, who say the state should not use tax dollars to fight. In reality, he said, they are “saying that any liberal judge should be able to veto the policy of the state of Florida because they go to the same judges every time.”

“We lose almost every time, and then we win on appeal almost every time. That’s what happened. So if you’re not willing to defend Florida’s duly enacted statutes against liberal jurisprudence,” DeSantis said, “then you’re basically saying the people of Florida shouldn’t govern themselves and that we should just turn over our destiny to some trial judge somewhere.” The Florida governor made it clear he refuses to sit idly by and allow that.

“We’re going to stand up for protecting the innocence of these kids,” DeSantis continued, reminding listeners that it is impossible to change basic biology.

Florida’s law, similar to Alabama’s, aims to protect children from irreversible medical procedures that critics claim they are too young to consent to. The law bans surgeries, hormones, and puberty blockers for minors, with supporters arguing that these interventions are experimental and potentially harmful. DeSantis and his supporters see these laws as essential for safeguarding children’s welfare and preserving societal values rooted in biological reality.

This legal battle also reflects a growing trend among conservative states to pass legislation restricting gender-affirming care for minors. These efforts have sparked nationwide debates about the ethics, legality, and necessity of such medical treatments for young people. Proponents of these laws argue that they are necessary to protect children from making life-altering decisions they may later regret, while opponents view them as discriminatory and harmful to transgender youth.

DeSantis remains undeterred, vowing to protect Florida’s legislative decisions and the welfare of its children. “Absolutely, we are going to defend the people of Florida. I am not going to turn over the destiny of this state to liberal judges,” he declared. This determination underscores his broader political strategy and commitment to conservative principles.
