Ron DeSantis' administration is taking aim at transition-related care for children and adolescents in the state, the latest development in a recent wave of bills and other actions targeting treatment for transgender youth across the country.In a letter sent to the Florida Board of Medicine, which was obtained by NBC News, state Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo wrote that he has recommended against "certain pharmaceutical, non-pharmaceutical, and surgical treatments for gender dysphoria," citing guidance released by the Florida Department of Health in April.
He wrote that Florida "must do more to protect children from politics-based medicine.""Otherwise, children and adolescents in our state will continue to face a substantial risk of long-term harm," Ladapo added.The request, which was dated June 2, came days after the start of Pride Month, an annual celebration of the LGBTQ+ community that coincides with the anniversary of the June 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City.
The administration's targeting of transition treatment may heighten the backlash from LGBTQ+ advocates against the DeSantis administration, which has taken heat in recent months over legislation commonly referred to as the "Don't Say Gay" law.
