News Nation, host of the evening.DeSantis claimed Haley supports “gender mutilation of minors” and does not support government intervention to stop these treatments.Haley responded that she had actually criticized Florida’s original “Don’t Say Gay” law, which bans instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in schools, for only going as high as third grade.She said it should be expanded to all grades.

DeSantis pointed out that the expansion was a different piece of legislation, which was passed earlier this year. “We’re talking about sex change operations on minors,” countered DeSantis. “They do puberty blockers, these are irreversible.
