Tell the government what you think. Should conscience rights be protected? Should discrimination based on sex include ‘gender identity?’
August 8, 2019
Do you ever wish that government officials had to listen to what you have to say? Comment here and they must review your comment. No, really, it’s required by federal law.
The Trump administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is considering a rule making important changes to Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and is still taking public comments. This rule would protect the conscience rights of people of faith who have a moral objection to performing abortions. It would also undo an Obama-era regulation on Section 1557 that shoehorned “gender identity” into the definition of “sex” (as opposed to meaning just “male” and “female”).
Here’s what Family Research Council Action said in an alert on this HHS Rule:
Doctors – and patients – need your help! Here’s how: send a comment to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar! The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a proposed rule to remove old Obama Administration regulations that would prevent doctors from being able to treat patients based strictly on science, biology, and their medical judgment!
The old regulation said that “sex” means “gender identity” meaning that if a doctor didn’t affirm a patient’s self-identified gender they could be sued for discrimination. Medical judgment and what is best for the patient didn’t matter!
Just a few weeks ago a woman sadly lost her baby because she presented to the hospital as a man and she was not properly diagnosed has having pregnancy-related difficulties.
In order to help ensure that this bad regulation is replaced, HHS needs to hear from you today! By law, HHS is required to review your public comment so your voice will be heard! Even if you comment anonymously! The activists on the left are mobilizing comments and your voice is needed!
