Clinton-Appointed Judge Strikes Down Florida’s Ban on Sex Changes for Children – DeSantis to Appeal | The Gateway Pundit

A federal judge on Tuesday struck down Florida’s ban on child sex changes.

Last year, the Florida legislature passed a law prohibiting anyone under 18 from undergoing sex reassignment surgeries or taking cross-sex hormones.

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed the legislation, and now a black-robed activist appointed by Clinton has repealed Florida’s law protecting children from mutilation.

U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle struck down Florida’s ban on child mutilation, calling it “unconstitutional.”

“Gender identity is real,” Judge Hinkle wrote in his 105-page decision. “Those whose gender identity does not match their natal sex often suffer from gender dysphoria. “The widely accepted standard of care requires appropriate evaluation and treatment.”

The judge continued: “For minors, this means evaluation and treatment by a multidisciplinary team. Appropriate treatment begins with mental health therapy and, in appropriate cases, is followed by GnRH agonists and cross-sex hormones (referred to in this order as gender-affirming care). Florida has adopted a statute and rules prohibiting gender-affirming child care, even when medically appropriate. The ban is unconstitutional.”

A spokesperson for DeSantis told Fox News that the governor will appeal the judge’s decision.

Excerpt from Fox News:

A federal judge in Florida has ruled that the state government’s rules on treatment for transgender children are unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle ruled against the state regulations in his 105-page decision, saying that restricting children’s access to transgender procedures was an act of “animus.”

DeSantis signed SB 254 last year, which prohibits anyone under the age of 18 from undergoing sex reassignment surgeries or taking cross-sex hormones to treat gender dysphoria.

The bill passed both chambers of the Florida state legislature before DeSantis’ final approval.

Jeremy Redfern, DeSantis’ press secretary, told Fox News Digital that the Florida government plans to appeal the decision.

“Through their elected representatives, the people of Florida acted to protect children in this state, and the Court was wrong to override their wishes. “We disagree with the Court’s erroneous rulings on the law, the facts and the science,” he said in a statement Tuesday.
