Ron DeSantis @GovRonDeSantis
It is not "sinful" to prohibit the mutilation of minors. It is not acceptable for the federal government to mandate that procedures like sex change operations be allowed for kids.
“Mandate they be allowed?" What incredible double speak.
No Gov. DeSantis, it’s called “limited government” (isn't that what Libertarians and Trumpublicans are all about? -- allowing parents and children to make the decisions that work best for themselves.
Parents, children, and their doctors should be making the decision, not politicians seeking to win over Trump's MAGA voters.
The federal government DOES NOT MANDATE any medical procedures, including sex change operations, for children.
According to the AMA and other medical associations, gender-affirming care for transgender young people is not "mutilation" - it is essential health care that often saves lives. For the state of Florida to deny that care is nothing less than child abuse.
Ron DeSantis should check his brain before opening his mouth on issues he knows nothing about.
"DeSantis declared that Russia’s brutal and unjustified war of aggression against a sovereign Ukraine is actually “a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia” and that protecting Ukraine is not a “vital” national interest of the United States."
"DeSantis, like Putin apologist Trump, might have misjudged the party whose nomination he he might seek. The majority of Americans, more than 70 percent, favor our role in the defense of Ukraine, and more than 90 percent have a negative view of Russia."
More pandering to the MAGA crowd.
And here's the little angry Trump wannabe pursuing red meat issues to get the MAGA vote:
DeSantis administration revokes Hyatt Regency Miami alcohol license after it hosted 'A Drag Queen Christmas'
The minors were allowed in as long as they were accompanied by an adult. IOW, the minors were there due to PARENTAL DISCRETION -- the parents made the choice, not the state. AFAIK, no children have been injured or killed watching a drag queen performance.
Definition of the word "discretion:" "The freedom to decide what should be done in a particular situation."
DeSantis refers to Florida as "Free Florida." LOL!
