The governor of the US state of Florida, Ron DeSantis, suspended this Thursday ( 4) Hillsborough County Attorney Andrew Warren, who said he will not prosecute residents of the state who seek or perform abortions, or doctors who offer gender-transition treatments – which the Republican manager is considering banning children.

According to information from CNN, DeSantis justified that Warren’s position represents a refusal to fully apply state law – in Florida, the governor can remove any high official from a county for misconduct, dereliction of duty, drunkenness, incompetence, permanent inability to perform official functions or for having committed a crime.

“Taking a position that you have veto powers over state laws is untenable,” argued DeSantis, who and he had directed his team to investigate whether any state attorneys had taken “for themselves the decision to determine which laws they like and which they will apply”.

In Florida, a new state law prohibits abortion after weeks of pregnancy. As for the transgender issue, DeSantis last year signed a law that vetoes the participation of people who have gone through gender transition in female school disputes.

The governor is also considering banning gender transition treatments for children, a proposal that will be discussed at a meeting of the Local Medical Council this Friday (5th).
