Ron DeSantis Brings Back Medical Authority For Second Term
(HorizonPost.com) – Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced that Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo would return for his second term in office. Ladapo is most known for opposing the medical establishment on issues such as mask regulations, coronavirus vaccine mandates, and transgender operations and therapies.
According to reports, DeSantis explained that Dr. Ladapo had done a terrific job as Florida’s Surgeon General. His evidence-based ideas provide a counterbalance to the increasingly political positions of the entrenched medical establishment. DeSantis also presented a video highlighting Ladapo’s accomplishments while serving in the government.
In another video, Ladapo criticized coworkers for mindlessly sticking to the figures and suggestions of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). He stated it was tragic that his colleagues had decided it was more important to adhere to whatever the CDC or Dr. Fauci says than to depend on their clinical wisdom and experience.
Ladapo has been a staunch opponent of mandatory vaccination, promising parents last month that children will not be required to acquire a Covid shot to attend school in Florida, regardless of CDC guidelines.
Reports show Twitter momentarily banned Ladapo in response to the state’s revised vaccine guidelines, encouraging men under 40 to skip mRNA doses. A Florida Department of Health research revealed an 84% increase in the relative frequency of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days after mRNA immunization.
Ladapo is recognized for more than criticizing the medical establishment over coronavirus vaccinations and universal masking. He has continued to speak out against the far-left’s efforts to normalize gender surgeries and therapies.
Earlier this month, the Florida Board of Medicine voted to prohibit mutilating minors as part of “gender-affirming” care.
Ladapo stated that the Boards of Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine voted to safeguard our children against irreversible procedures and experimental therapies. He admired their integrity for ruling in the interest of Florida’s children, despite immense pressure to allow these harmful and unproven treatments.
The left’s obsession with harming children is confounding.
