TAMPA BAY, Florida (LifeSiteNews) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis condemned “gender-affirming care” for children, calling it a euphemism for castration and sterilization. 

During a July 22 Fox News interview with Laura Ingraham, DeSantis responded to Biden HHS Assistant Secretary Richard “Rachel” Levine‘s recent claim that so-called “gender-affirming care” is “medically necessary.”

“Gender affirming care is medically necessary, safe and effective for transgender and non-binary children and adolescents,” Levine, a gender-confused man, tweeted 

And understand what that is, that’s a euphemism,” DeSantis responded. They will actually take a young boy and castrate the boy. They will take a young girl and do a mastectomy, or they will sterilize her because of the gender dysphoria. There is no evidence that this is something that’s effective medical care.

And we know that people that do this when they’re kids have huge problems going on,” he added. So, we believe that this is not appropriate in the state of Florida. We don’t think a doctor should get a license if they’re doing it.”

And I think these doctors should be able to be sued by these folks when they develop problems later in life,” DeSantis continued. This is wrong. Minors should not be having this type of stuff performed on them.

There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.

Consider these 3 questions: 

  • Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5? 
  • Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
  • Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active? 

A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.

In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity. 

We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!

The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.

Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes. 

Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.

Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting: 

That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.

The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.

Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.

Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.

Last week, Levine responded to pushback against Biden administration policies that would allow males who identify as female to compete on female athletic teams and that promote irreversible “gender transitioning” of children. “We really want to base our treatment and affirm and to support and empower these youth,” he said.  

Up to around 100 percent of boys and 90 percent of girls with gender dysphoria come to accept their biological sex as they reach adulthood, according to the American Psychiatric Association, but virtually all of those started on puberty blockers later take cross-sex hormones, as LifeSiteNews has reported. These drugs sterilize users and typically lead to devastating transgender surgeries.

Puberty-blocking drugs, like Supprelin LA and Lupron, are linked to serious, permanent side effects, such as osteoporosis, cognitive impairment, and sterility.
