Mike DeWine took $40,300 from Ohio hospitals that perform child sex changes before vetoing bill
"Legislators should take into consideration when voting on overriding Governor Mike DeWine's veto that he coincidently recieved thousands of dollars from the child butcher shops maiming Ohio's children. The House has overriden DeWine, next the Senate considers it. " said Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
After Ohio Governor Mike DeWine vetoed legislation that would have banned sex changes for minors, a new report revealed that he has received thousands in campaign donations from hospitals that conduct or support those procedures.
According to the Daily Caller, from 2018 to 2023 DeWine received $40,300 total from the Ohio Children's Hospital Association (OCHA), Cincinnati Children's, Nationwide Children's Hospital, and ProMedica Children's Hospital.
Investigative researcher for Capital Research Parker Thayer, pointed out on X, that nearly half of the medical donations came from the OHCA. "How nice of him to veto a bill that would have cost 'gender affirming' children's hospitals millions of dollars."
HB 68 would have prevented children from receiving life-altering medical interventions intended to change a child's sex. It also would have barred males from competing in female sports.
The Ohio governor is one of only a few Republican lawmakers who have sided with trans activists on child sex changes.
