Gov. Evers Vetoes Help Not Harm Bill

In a move that was hardly surprising, last week Governor Tony Evers vetoed the bill known as the “Help Not Harm” bill. This bill, passed along party lines in both the Assembly and the Senate earlier this fall, would have prohibited medical professionals from performing so-called “gender affirming” surgeries on or prescribing cross-sex hormones or puberty blockers for minors struggling with gender confusion.

The governor has repeatedly said he’s all about the kids, yet he vetoes a bill that would have truly helped, not harmed kids. This was about pandering to a political agenda that the Governor is beholden to in part because of his personal worldview and in part because of those who have funded his campaign. The kids are truly the losers here.
