Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers vetoed Assembly Bill 465, which aimed to prohibit sex change hormones and surgeries for minors.

The bill was passed by Republican lawmakers in October, but Evers vetoed it, arguing that it perpetuates harmful and discriminatory anti-LGBTQ policies.

He emphasized the importance of trusting healthcare providers to make decisions without political interference. (Trending: LeBron James Shares Gun Advice For Americans)

“This type of legislation, and the rhetoric beget by pursuing it, harms LGBTQ people and kids’ mental health, emboldens anti-LGBTQ hate and violence, and threatens the safety and dignity of Wisconsinites,” Evers said.

“His veto is expected to survive a challenge from Republicans in the state legislature, who voted overwhelmingly to pass the bill in October. While Republicans hold majorities in both the state Senate and Assembly, they do not have enough votes to override the governor’s veto,” the report noted.

“Still, Wisconsin Democrats say they must remain “extremely vigilant” in upholding Evers’s vetoes. In the state Assembly, Republicans are just two seats shy of a supermajority, meaning all Democratic Assemblymembers must be present to fend off an override.”

“I am vetoing this bill in its entirety because I object to restricting physicians from providing evidence-based and medically appropriate care to their patients, restricting parents from making decisions with physicians to ensure their kids receive the healthcare they need, and preventing patients from receiving that basic, lifesaving care,” Evers said.

Laws similar to this bill have been passed in 22 states since 2021, and Democrats are actively working to support gender ideology and transgender rights.
