January 1, Judge Blocks Ban on Hormone Drugs For Kids

June 12th, 1967, marked a monumental victory for civil rights… READ MORE ABOUT THIS HISTORIC DAY HERE

Recently, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida signed a law that, simply put, disallowed physicians from prescribing puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones to minors. It also put the kibosh on irreversible procedures, such as double mastectomy or vaginoplasty. The goal? To safeguard our kids from making potentially irrevocable decisions before they’re fully equipped to do so.

Judge Robert Hinkle issued a preliminary injunction against the law. In his ruling, Hinkle wrote, “Gender identity is real…Proper treatment begins with mental-health therapy and is followed in appropriate cases by GnRH agonists and cross-sex hormones.” He goes on to say that if gender transitioning for minors is as harmful as the state claims, “the solution would be to appropriately regulate these treatments, not to ban them.”

The injunction comes as a response to a lawsuit brought forward by families seeking gender transition procedures for their children. The families are represented by Southern Legal Counsel and various gay and transgender advocacy groups. In their eyes, the injunction is a victory, “a powerful affirmation of the humanity of transgender people.”

Now, I’m not one to shy away from the reality of gender dysphoria. I understand the struggle these kids and their families are going through. But let’s consider this: are minors really in a position to fully comprehend the implications of these life-changing procedures? I reckon most folks wouldn’t trust a teenager to decide on a tattoo that’ll last a lifetime, let alone irreversible medical procedures.

It’s a tough subject, no doubt. But isn’t the purpose of laws like the one Gov. DeSantis signed to ensure the safety and well-being of our children? When does the safeguarding of minors from potentially regrettable decisions become an infringement on their rights? This is a question we need to keep asking ourselves as we navigate this evolving world. After all, isn’t the goal to build a society where freedom, responsibility, and the well-being of our children aren’t mutually exclusive?

    Parent’s are responsible for children under the age of majority (18) and control medical procedures on them. If some state agency tries to halt their regulate growth thru sexual diversion who is responsible for medical bills of children? Even young adults seeking diversion procedures could be held responsbile for medical cost if parents’ refuse to pay.
