Democratic Candidate Accused of Covering Up Disturbing Past Support
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Conservatives and Liberals have increasingly been at each other’s throats over the subject of gender transitioning by children and teenagers in recent years. The vast majority of right-wingers reject the idea of medical and surgical interventions for this purpose for patients younger than 18. Now, it’s become a key talking point in a race for the US House of Representatives in South Carolina.
Incumbent Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) gave an interview on Fox News Digital on Monday, October 10, in which she criticized her Democratic opponent Annie Andrews for her previous support of gender reassignment in children.
In the tweet below, dated March 16, 2021, Andrews, who is a medical doctor specializing in the care of children, expresses her opposition to a state bill in South Carolina that would have made the provision of gender-affirming care to minors a crime.
#H4047 would criminalize providers of evidence-based gender affirming care.
This is a dangerous bill and it is popping up all over the country.

On Fox, Mace claimed Andrews was essentially promoting operations like mastectomies and castration for children, and advocating for boys’ participation in girls’ sports. This is the latest of a number of claims of this nature from Mace about Andrews’ position on trans rights.
Last month, Andrews released a statement condemning Mace’s “bigoted attacks” on trans children. The Democrat insisted neither she nor the hospital she worked for provided gender-affirming care to minors.
