DeSantis: ‘It Is Not Healthcare to Cut off the Private Parts of a Child’

Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has dropped the hammer on the “woke” mob in response to a leftist backlash against his policies to protect children.

Gov. DeSantis has been working to eliminate the practice of putting children through life-altering sex-change surgeries and other irreversible transgender treatments.

As Slay News has reported, the governor has passed new laws in Florida to outlaw gender treatments for children.

The state has also passed laws to ban gender ideology from Florida’s public schools and define biological sex as binary.

“It is not healthcare to cut off the private parts of a child – that is mutilation,” DeSantis said in a post on Twitter.

“We are standing up against that.”

He shared a video clip from his Friday press conference as he marked the final day of the legislative session and touted the state lawmakers’ accomplishments.

In the video, DeSantis declares:

“When you talk to people — and I know like people in your industry will dress it up with a euphemism and they’ll say it’s healthcare to cut off the private parts of a 14- or 15-year-old — that is not healthcare.

“That is mutilation,” DeSantis asserts.

“When we’re standing up against that,” DeSantis adds before he’s interrupted by applause.

“When we’re standing up against that, we’re protecting these kids,” he continues.

DeSantis goes on to list examples of individuals who went through the transition as minors and now say it is the “biggest regret of their life.”

“They feel like they were manipulated,” he explains.

“I understand there’s some physicians that are very ideological about it, but the fact is people go through a lot when they’re teenagers.

“You grow out of it most of the time in these situations,” he said, noting that 80 to 90 percent “resolves by the time you get there.”

“Sweden, these European countries that went down this road have done a big U-turn.

“They said this is not good, medical practice and so they don’t do it anymore.”

He continued by explaining that this subject would not have even been controversial even ten years ago.

DeSantis listed some of the actions the legislature took to protect minors from this kind of mutilation.

“The legislature prohibited doing things like double mastectomies.

“They prohibited doing things, you know, with male private parts that are very graphic.

“They prohibited pumping these minors with puberty blockers, which is just not something that’s appropriate,” he explained.

DeSantis identified those moves as “appropriate guard rails.”
