Lawsuits Filed Against Obama Administration’s New Transgender Care Rule
Lawsuits are piling up against the Obama administration’s new requirements for transgender care!
Washington Examiner reported:
The Catholic Benefits Association, which represents more than 700 Catholic employers including many hospitals, filed a lawsuit in federal court Dec. 28 in an effort to get its members exempted from the rule. Five states and several other Christian healthcare providers are already fighting the requirement in another case against the rule. A Texas judge halted the rule over the weekend.
The rule, which went into effect Jan. 1, says that doctors can’t refuse to provide medically necessary health services within their scope of practice because of a patient’s gender identity. For instead, a gynecologist couldn’t refuse to perform a cervical Pap test for a transgender man.
The rule doesn’t explicitly require doctors to perform gender transition services, but it says providers can’t refuse services they already provide based on discrimination. The Department of Health and Human Services wrote that it would deal with complaints of discrimination on a case-by-case basis, by looking into whether a doctor provides the same service when it’s not related to gender transition.
But opponents say the rule could require doctors must perform gender transition services they are morally opposed to or don’t feel would be healthy for the patient. They say that if a doctor would give a woman a hysterectomy for medical reasons, he would have to provide the same service to a transgender man trying to undergo gender transition.
The Obama administration is more concerned about the infinitesimal group of people who identify as transgender than the millions of military veterans who served our country with honor. This type of cultural Marxism is what drove this administration. Societal inversions are purposefully injected into every aspect of our lives to cause chaos.
The Trump administration must put an end to this insanity. Forcing doctors to perform abortions, transgender care or any other medical procedures that they are morally opposed to is wrong.
