Florida’s Surgeon General has raised alarm over the Federal Government’s data on how to treat kids with gender dysphoria, concluding the effort was “never about health care.”
“The Federal Government’s medical establishment releasing guidance failing at the most basic level of academic rigor shows that this was never about health care,” said State Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo Wednesday. “It was about injecting political ideology into the health of our children.”
“Children experiencing gender dysphoria should be supported by family and seek counseling, not pushed into an irreversible decision before they reach 18.”
Ladapo gave his statement alongside the release of his state’s official guidance on the issue.
The document itself makes clear it exists to serve as a counter to the Federal government’s “biased” data that’s loaded with “low-quality” evidence.
