Recently, Americans were stunned when the Republican governor of Ohio vetoed a GOP-backed bill. The law would have prevented transgender procedures on minors.
Similar laws that protect children and parental rights have been passed in other red states.
Only Democrats, it appears, strongly oppose these bills. So, why did Gov. DeWine veto this one? Now, people might have stumbled on the real reason.
From The Post Millennial:
…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.
Mike DeWine just vetoed a bill that would have protected children from irreversible genital and hormonal mutilation. The main entity opposing House Bill 68 seems to have been the Ohio Children’s Hospital Association.

Investigative researchers have revealed that Gov. Mike DeWine of Ohio has received tens of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from hospitals that perform transgender procedures. This comes just days after the Republican governor vetoed a bill that would have banned such measures.
The governor claimed that these controversial procedures “literally saved lives.” Yet now, some will accuse the man of merely protecting groups who have profited from the transgender movement.
One user claimed these children’s hospitals would have lost “millions of dollars” had the bill become a law.
Many parents have spoken out against liberals who are pushing transgenderism onto children. Public schools have been outed for providing gender ideology content to young children.
Critics claim transgender activists (some of whom are doctors) exploit vulnerable children and convince them they need these procedures. Parents are either not told or are bullied into supporting it.
It’s unclear what consequences DeWine will face over this veto. But the news that he’s been funded by transgender groups will not go over well with Ohio Republicans. The backlash against his administration could be fierce.
- Gov. DeWine received large campaign donations from transgender hospitals.
- This news came out days after he vetoed a bill banning transgender procedures on children.
- Children’s hospitals donated over $40,000 to his campaigns.
