Parents, Doctors Allowing Sex Change Surgeries for Children Should Have ‘Prison for Life’: Elon Musk

After MSNBC published an article describing the “hot mess state” of Florida and its “deplorable” governor Ron DeSantis (R), a political commentary Twitter account, The Redheaded Libertarian, shared the article.

The Redheaded Libertarian mocked the article, stating, “Governor DeSantis: you can’t sex change for your child in Florida.”

Twitter and Tesla CEO Elon Musk responded to the tweet, writing, “Any parent or doctor who sterilizes a child before they are a consenting adult should go to prison for life.”

Reporting from The Blaze:

Matthew Kolken, an attorney and director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association's Board of Governors, replied to Musk's tweet, "Also note, it is a federal crime to perform, attempt to perform, or conspire to perform female genital mutilation on another person who has not attained the age of 18 years under 18 U.S. Code § 116. 'It shall not be a defense to a prosecution under this section that female genital mutilation is required as a matter of religion, custom, tradition, ritual, or standard practice.'"
