DeSantis Skewers Newsom Over Parental Rights For Signing Transgender Minor Law

 Florida Governor Ron DeSantis grilled California Governor Gavin Newsom during their debate in Georgia on Thursday night over the issue of parental rights.

The Republican presidential candidate specifically went after a bill that Newsom signed into law that allows a minor to come from out of state to receive transgender treatments without their parent’s consent.

“Let me just say something about parents rights because he says California respects parents rights. This is rich, he’s been telling a lot of whoppers tonight, this may be the biggest,” DeSantis said. “In California, if you’re a parent in Iowa, or New Hampshire, or South Carolina, your minor child can go to California without your knowledge or without your consent and get hormone therapy, puberty blockers, and a sex change operation all without you knowing or consenting.”

“How in the heck is that honoring parent’s rights when you’re bringing people from out of state to go around their parents’ backs and getting life altering surgeries?” DeSantis continued. “That is radical, that is extreme–”

“You know what, Ron? These kids just want to live!” Newsom lashed out.

“That is an assault on parents’ rights,” DeSantis said.

“You know what, Ron?” Newsom said as he tried to interrupt DeSantis.

“It’s not for you to decide!” DeSantis fired back. “It’s for the parents to decide. And the parents do not want their kids going [and doing this].”
