Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is now taking direct action to try and protect the children of Florida from being harmed by the radical left’s obsession with transgenderism.

As NBC News reports:


Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration Thursday asked the state board regulating doctors to essentially ban transition-related care for transgender minors, according to a letter obtained by NBC News.

The state Health Department made the request hours after another state agency issued a 46-page report to justify banning Medicaid coverage for transgender people of any age who want puberty blockers, hormone therapies or gender-assignment surgery.

In a partial answer to the criticisms, Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration issued its report Thursday questioning the science and safety of hormone therapies, puberty blockers and gender-assignment surgery. Ladapo then asked the Florida Board of Medicine to “establish a standard of care” Thursday that could ultimately result in prohibiting doctors from prescribing the therapies for transgender youths. The process could take months, and it’s unclear how many people it could affect.

“While some professional organizations, such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Endocrine Society, recommend these treatments for ‘gender affirming’ care, the scientific evidence supporting these complex medical interventions is extraordinarily weak,” Ladapo wrote in his letter.

In addition the DeSantis administration is also trying to prevent therapists from attempting to talk children into using alternative pronouns, something known as ‘social gender transition therapy.’

It doesn’t take a doctor to affirm one’s gender, just look down.

There is no such thing as “transmania” and there is no “radical left” in America .
Bigotry against innocent, harmless transgender Americans is rampant in the US and every year ,
an appalling number of trans individuals are MURDERED by bigots .
The. Democrats are RIGHTLY fighting for the rights of. LGBTQ Americans, and the Republicans and. radical RIGHT WING organizations in America are fighting to rob LGBTQ Americans of their rights and ultimately PERSECUTE them . These people call themselves “Christians “.
They are nothing but narrow-minded, intolerant, self-righteous BIGOTS !!!
