Ohio’s GOP governor vetoes state ban on gender-bending drugs for kids


Ohio Republican Gov. Mike DeWine vetoed a bill that would have banned gender-distorting medical care for minors.

“This bill would impact a very small number of Ohio’s children. But for those children who face gender dysphoria, the consequences of this bill could not be more profound. Ultimately I believe this is about protecting human life,” Gov. DeWine said at a Friday press event. “Many parents have told me that their child would not have survived, would be dead today, if they had not received the treatment they received from one of Ohio’s children’s hospitals. These are gut-wrenching decisions that should be made by parents and should be informed by teams of doctors who are advising them. Were I to sign House Bill 68, or were House Bill 68 to become law, Ohio would be saying that the state, that the government knows better what is medically best for a child than the two people who love that child the most, the parents.”

The bill would have also created single-sex athletic teams, an effort to protect girls from unfair competition by boys who believe they are girls and who compete as girls against real girls.

Republicans hold a supermajority in the legislature and could override the veto.


  1. Great to know that there are still some Republican Governors who believe in science and the advice of the medical profession.

  2. Gender dysphoria is not best treated with butchery or reinforcement of the dysphoria, which is a mental illness. Good grief we have returned to the dark ages of blood letting and leeches.

  3. Teams of Wolves wearing White Coats , err, excuse me , doctors, should be advising parents in making these decisions says the Governor of Ohio.

    It begs the question, are these the same doctors who were so confident about the efficacy of that m- RNA treatment? Hmm…

    Another thing, how was it that civilization some how managed to survive these last 5,000 years or so without every Tom Boy on the playground getting her breasts removed and muscle tissue from her wrists fashioned into a makeshift penis?

    I am heartened to know that we as a society have cut loose from the bonds of superstition and embraced this brave new world of medical mutilation, which surely will add to Pfizers bottom line!

  4. Amazing what over $40,000 in donations from healthcare facilities and providers who do child mutilation can buy you.
