Trump Administration Protecting Christian Doctors and Hospitals

Despite how “liberal” the President is, we see the Trump Administration protecting religious freedom against the anti-sex Left.

Contrary to Never Trump and Conservative predictions, LGBT activist are panicking that the White House will “legalize discrimination,” which is their spin on the Trump Administration protecting doctors and hospitals from being forced to sterilize and mutilate people.

Once again, if this happens as it seems likely, Christians will have a reason to praise God that Donald Trump is President and not Hillary Clinton. Whatever Trump’s views are, he is keeping his promise to his voting coalition.

The Federalist reports, “Trans Claims Of Medical Discrimination Are Really About Refusals To Mutilate And Sterilize People.”

For some time, the LGBT Left have insisted that various elective procedures and medications to help transgender people approximate the opposite sex are “medically necessary treatments.” Their passion has been fueled by the threat that the Trump administration is preparing to enforce existing law that allows physicians and hospitals to discriminate against transgender people on religious grounds.

The Affordable Health Care Act banned discrimination based on sex, as well as other standard characteristics, in any health program. As The New York Times states, “Under the existing rule, health insurers cannot place arbitrary limits or restrictions on health services that help a person transition from one gender to another. These services may include counseling, psychotherapy, hormone therapy and a variety of surgical treatments.”

Eight states, many Roman Catholic hospitals, and the Christian Medical and Dental Associations (which represents around 18,000 physicians) opposed the rule. A federal judge in Texas ruled that law only applies to biological sex. The Times continued, “Jennifer C. Pizer, the law and policy director at Lambda Legal, a gay rights group, said, “That is an excruciatingly narrow and legally incorrect definition of the term ‘sex’ that would jeopardize legal protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.”

On July 17, 2018 the Transgender Law Center and National Center for Transgender Equality held a rally in Washington DC under the banner “Protect Trans Health.” Many advocacy organizations demonstrated. […]

The LGBT group Human Rights Campaign joined in, demanding, “In the past year, 1 in 3 #transgender people experienced discrimination from a doctor. Now, the Trump-Pence administration wants to let doctors pick & choose who deserves care. It’s time to tell HHS to #ProtectTransHealth!” and “Nobody should be turned away from medical care, with their health and lives put at risk, because of who they are. We must #ProtectTransHealth and stop the Trump-Pence administration from green-lighting discrimination.”
