‘Putting vulnerable children at risk’: Nicolle Flint blasts ‘pathetic’ SA Premier

Former Liberal MP Nicolle Flint has blasted SA Premier Peter Malinauskas for a “pathetic display” of not being able to “stand up to the left of his party” and blocking the push for an inquiry into treatment of children with gender dysphoria.

“Are we putting vulnerable young kids at risk – children who cannot make an informed decision as an adult about treatment that may have life-changing ramifications,” Ms Flint asked Sky News Australia host Peta Credlin.

“All the inquiry wanted to do was explore precisely what the treatment procedures are.

“Are we doing the right thing? Are we undertaking our duty of care properly?

“We do not want children coming back in two, five, ten years’ time coming back and saying this was negligent.”
