Louisville, KY – Today, Daniel Cameron released the following statement in response to the veto of SB 150 by Andy Beshear.
“Last week the General Assembly passed SB 150 and, unsurprisingly, Andy Beshear vetoed this bill today. If I were Governor I would have absolutely signed it. The media’s coverage on this bill has been shameful gaslighting and the action by our governor not only sets a dangerous precedent for our children’s future, but also endangers their health and well-being.
Even many liberal European countries are putting the brakes on these surgeries and other gender therapies for minors. Meanwhile in America, Democrats call it extreme to oppose chemical castration and gender mutilation of minors. That is not care – it’s irreversible and is the exact opposite of how we should support children experiencing gender dysphoria or mental health struggles.
My administration will protect our youth from dangerous ideologies and defend Kentucky’s values.”
