There are many threats that children in America face from the Left.
They’re in our education system, in the media, in the entertainment industry, and in the healthcare system.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has already taken action in the area of education.
Now he’s going to address healthcare.
Specifically, he wants to stop chemical castration on behalf of the transgender agenda.
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said he would surely sign a bill that banned transgender treatments and surgeries for minors.
In an interview that premiered Wednesday by the Daily Caller, DeSantis said he is “very much opposed to chemical castration of minors.”Breitbart News
Here’s the full interview.
The segment on transgender surgery starts at 12:33.
And here’s the key line.
“I mean, honestly, I didn’t even know that this existed, until like a few years ago, so that would be something that I would sign for sure,” he asserted.Breitbart News
This is great news, and the stance that all Republican governors should be taking.
DeSantis also shared his views on similar legislation to protect women’s sports.
Earlier in the interview, DeSantis spoke about his decision to sign into law the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, protecting girls’ and women’s sports from biological males who “identify” as females.
The governor explained his reasoning:
Well, look, it’s discrimination against our women athletes to force them to participate, against male athletes. I mean we had Selina [Soule] from Connecticut came in. She missed New England regionals for track by two places and both the people that beat her were biological males. And, so, if she had had a level playing field, she would have not only advanced a regional, she would have won that track meet. And, so, my view – I mean I have two daughters. I want them to have the opportunity to do things and follow their dreams, but it needs to be a level playing field, and it needs to be fair, and it should all be based on biology, not based on ideology.Breitbart News
But some Republican governors haven’t acted on this, and DeSantis has a reason why.
Asked by interviewer Mary Margaret Olohan his views on why some Republican governors are hesitant to sign legislation protecting women’s sports, DeSantis replied, “I think it’s just corporate pressure.”
The governor elaborated:
I think corporations have gotten very woke, they tend to genuflect for whatever the most recent left-wing cause is, because they just don’t like getting the blowback, they don’t want to be the subject of a social media mob or things like that. And, so, I think that they’ve taken that posture, but you can’t let them. Like some woke corporation, you’re going to turn over the reins of government to them and let them set the policy?
“That ain’t happening in Florida, and so we we’re not going to be deterred by that,” he asserted, adding the NCAA had announced in April it would not hold its events in states that pass laws protecting women’s sports.
“And I told the speaker who’s here I said, man, we’ve got to get this done, like we cannot be bullied,” the governor said. “And, so, we did and now they’ve basically said, ‘Well, we’ll hold events.’”Breitbart News
DeSantis is leading the way on protecting children, as well as women’s sports, and other GOP governors should follow his lead.
If they don’t, then it’s most likely because of corporate pressure, just as DeSantis stated.
And if Republican governors are bowing to corporate pressure, then we need to vote them out of office.
