School board candidate: Doctors who treat transgender kids ‘should be hanging’ from tree

(WHNT) – A school board candidate in Santa Rosa County, Florida publicly stated that doctors who prescribe gender-affirming treatments to transgender children should be hung from trees.

According to a Pensacola News Journal report, Alisabeth Janai Lancaster made the comment during a political forum Monday night.

“These doctors that are going along with mutilating these children and prescribing hormone blockers to these kids, in my opinion, they should be hanging from the nearest tree,” Lancaster said. The statement was reportedly met by applause from the audience.
