Florida Gov. DeSantis: Doctors performing sex change operations should face LEGAL ACTION
08/07/2022 // Ramon Tomey // Views

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis told the media Wednesday, August 3, that doctors performing gender transition surgeries on children experiencing gender dysphoria should face legal action.

"[These doctors] talk about these young kids getting 'gender-affirming care.' They don't tell you what that is," he said. "They're actually giving very young girls double mastectomies. They want to castrate these young boys."

"I think these doctors need to get sued for what's happening. That's wrong." (Related: DeSantis calls for all doctors who perform "gender affirming" surgeries on children to be SUED.)

According to DeSantis, kids between 10 and 13 years old should not undergo surgical procedures based on gender dysphoria as 80 percent of gender confusion "resolves anyways by the time [children] get older."

The Republican governor's remarks followed his earlier plan to prohibit gender transition surgeries for minors, which he elaborated on back in May. DeSantis shared this plan with Fox News host Lisa Boothe on the latter's program "The Truth with Lisa Boothe."

"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 castrating a young boy, sterilizing a young girl [and] doing mastectomies for these very young girls," he said.

"You're doing things that are permanently altering them, and then they're not [going to] be able to reverse that. So I don’t think it's appropriate for kids at all."

DeSantis also backed the guidance issued by Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo that advised against the use of puberty blockers, hormone treatments or surgical procedures for children. However, he told Boothe that additional safeguards are needed.


"[While] I think the guidance is right, there should be additional protections. Because when you're growing up – there are things that, you know, [happen at] an awkward time. It seems like there's a concerted effort in society to push these kids to do some type of medical intervention and, in our judgment, that's not healthy," said DeSantis.

Other GOP governors also block gender transition procedures

With DeSantis becoming more vocal against the transgender agenda, several of his colleagues in the GOP are stepping up to protect their children.

Back in April, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed Senate Bill (SB) 184 that bans transgender drugs and surgeries into law. SB184 prohibits puberty blockers or other drugs "intended to alter the a child's gender or delay puberty" alongside sterilizing surgeries for minors.

"There are very real challenges facing our young people, especially with today's societal pressures and modern culture. I believe very strongly that if the good Lord made you a boy, you are a boy – and if He made you a girl, you are a girl," Ivey said in a statement.

A month earlier, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey also signed a bill prohibiting underage gender transition surgeries in the state. SB 1138, which he signed into law on March 29, banned irreversible "sex change" procedures such as genital mutilation, hysterectomy and mastectomy for children below the age of 19.

Describing the proposal as "common sense," Ducey said SB 1138 ensures that "individuals undergoing irreversible gender reassignment surgery are of adult age."

In February, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott directed state agencies to treat "gender-transitioning procedures" for minors as child abuse. He also ordered them to investigate parents and medical facilities pushing children to undergo these procedures under the guise of "gender-affirming care."

The Lone Star State's governor remarked: "[There's] no doubt that these procedures are 'abuse' under Texas law, and thus must be halted." He added that the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services "has the responsibility to act accordingly."
