HHS rolls back protections for transgender people

Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new Trump administration rule would roll back sex discrimination protection for transgender people in health services.

In the proposed rule issued Friday, the Health and Human Services Department says laws banning sex discrimination in health care don’t apply to people’s “gender identity.” LGBT groups have long warned such a move could lead to denial of needed medical care.

That rule reverses the policy of the Obama administration, which had found that sex discrimination laws do protect transgender people.

The rule faces a 60-day comment period and court challenges are expected.

10. this rollback

Appeases Hairplug Himmler's 'base' which I'm surely hoping is shrinking on a daily basis. Sure, there are going to be those racist azzhats that will always be card-carrying KKK Members and LOVE each and everything that 45 has managed to do so far. But, there has to be more like minded Souls that care about each and every individual in this Nation and beyond. No matter their Nationality, their skin color, their race, their religion, their sexuality, what ever. I'm just sick of all of this. It gets so disheartening to know that there are a minimum of 33% of Americans with so much hatred towards so many individuals. And then they call themselves 'christians'...yes, I rambled, I apologize.
