In the name of protecting children, DeSantis and his GOP cronies are all in on traumatizing them and their family members if they obtain gender-affirming care.
The New Republic explains:
The new law will allow the state to take custody of a child if they have been “subjected to or [are] threatened with being subjected to” gender-affirming care, which includes puberty blockers and hormone replacement therapy. Florida courts could modify custody agreements from a different state if the minor is likely to receive gender-affirming care in that second state. The text refers to gender-affirming care as “sex-reassignment prescriptions or procedures” and qualifies this care as a form of “physical harm.”
Medical facilities would have to give the state Department of Health a signed attestation that they neither provide gender-affirming care to any patients under the age of 18 nor refer people to providers that do. Their medical license renewal is contingent upon sending in this attestation.
Can you imagine the emotional harm to a transgender minor who is removed from their home and placed into Florida state custody? Obviously, DeSantis doesn’t care whom he hurts for the sake of his “anti-woke” politics.
