Senator J.D. Vance criticized Governor Mike DeWine for vetoing a bill banning gender procedures on minors and preventing boys from competing in girls’ sports.

DeWine defended his decision, citing concerns about government overreach and parental rights.

Vance argued that DeWine’s defense is merely a slogan, dismissing the pressure from interest groups and pharmaceutical companies. (Trending: Transgender Actor ‘Purposefully Misgendered’ By Airline Employee)

“Ultimately, I believe this is about protecting human life,” said DeWine.

“Many parents have told me that their child would not have survived, would be dead today, if they did not receive the treatment they received from one of Ohio’s children’s hospitals. I’ve also been told by those who are now grown adults that, but for this care, they would’ve taken their life when they were teenagers,” he continued.

“Were HB 68 to become law, Ohio would be saying that the state — that the government — knows better, what is medically best for their child, than the two people who love that child the most: the parents,” added the governor.

“Therefore I cannot sign this bill as it is currently written,” he explained.

“This is a slogan, not a justification. There are many things the law rightfully says no one, including parents, may do to children,” wrote Vance.

“This slogan also ignores the extraordinary pressure from interest groups and big pharma to green light poorly understood, irreversible procedures. I’m extremely disappointed in the governor’s decision and hope it is overridden,” he continued.

The bill, HB 68, had passed with a Republican majority, but DeWine’s veto could be overridden by a three-fifths vote in the Ohio General Assembly.

The governor faced criticism from Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy and detransitioner Chloe Cole following the veto.

“There are two genders. Boys shouldn’t compete with girls in girls’ sports. Kids shouldn’t be subjected to genital mutilation & chemical castration when they suffer mental health lapses. Shame on Ohio Governor Mike DeWine for this failure,” said Ramaswamy.

“Gov. DeWine’s political career is over. What a way to go out. Paid off by the medical lobby, which is insanely powerful in Ohio. Remember him for his desire to sterilize and mutilate children,” commented Cole.
