Ohio Governor Mike DeWine is undecided on whether to sign House Bill 68, which bans specific transgender procedures and prohibits male athletes who identify as female from competing in girls’ and women’s sports.

DeWine emphasized the need to take more time to consider the legislation and stated that he would make an announcement before the 10-day deadline.

Supporters argue that the bill will protect children, while opponents claim it will harm kids by restricting their choices. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

The LGBTQ+ advocacy organization, Equality Ohio, sees the bill as potentially forcing families to move and vows to continue fighting if the legislation is signed.

As of now, 22 states have banned certain transgender procedures for minors, and Governor DeWine has until December 29 to decide on the bill.

“While this does not affect a large number of Ohioans, it does affect a number of children in our state. We need to get it right. For me, getting it right means finding out as much as I can,” DeWine said.

“It’s a process that’s going on. It’s a process that’s not done. I will be making an announcement, obviously, before the 10 days runs out,” DeWine said.

“The one thing that I think is clear to me is both sides, frankly, want what is best for children.”
