Ron DeSantis.Fine said the proposed legislation will make it a felony for doctors to perform gender assignment surgery on minors, punishable by prison and loss of medical license.
He said that the acts would be considered child abuse.Fine told Newsweek that parents would be charged with felony child abuse as well.I've had enough.
Next session, I will shepherd legislation to make it illegal to provide drugs or surgery to a minor for “gender assignment." Will make it felony child abuse punishable by prison/loss of medical license.
This legislation would not affect mental counseling."If an adult wants to self-mutilate in pursuit of the fiction they can defy God and science, more power to them—as they don't expect me to pay for it," Fine tweeted. "But no child should be put in the position of making life-altering decisions before they are of the age of majority."The congressman went on to mock gender reassignment, saying he could declare himself a porcupine, but that doesn't make it true.Fine's proposed bill follows a similar pattern already seen in other states.The Arizona Senate voted to prohibit gender reassignment surgeries for minors in February.
