Rasmussen Reports most recent survey showed Dr. Anthony Fauci is shrouded in doubt in American voters’ perspective. 46% of voters believe Fauci has not told the truth about U.S. funding gain-of-function research. Meanwhile, 15% are not sure.

Unaffiliated voters (51%) and Republicans (66%) alike don’t believe Fauci has told the truth about the U.S. funding gain-of-function research. Yet, 63% of Democrats believe Fauci told the truth.

Republicans also oppose U.S. government funding for gain-of-function virus research at 44%, more than 16% of Democrats 16% and 36% of unaffiliated voters. A 52% majority of Democrats say the government should be funding such research, but only 24% of Republican and unaffiliated voters agree. The majority of all voters, 61%, say they’ve been following news coverage of gain-of-function research closely.

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
