Doctors Fight Obama’s Transgender Rules

A significant lawsuit against recent HHS rules regarding sex-reassignment surgery.

Another week, another lawsuit against Barack Obama’s executive overreach. This time, The Daily Signal reports, “Five states and a group of religiously-affiliated hospitals and physicians are suing the Obama administration over a federal mandate that forces doctors to perform gender transition procedures on adults and children against their medical judgment. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a Texas federal court, attempts to roll back a rule imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services in May that expanded the interpretation of ‘sex’ under the Affordable Care Act to include ‘gender identity.’” HHS confirmed that its rule would “likely cover almost all licensed physicians because they accept federal financial assistance.” Think of it as “bake the cake,” only for doctors, and on a national scale. You will be forced to provide services regardless of conscience or law.

This lawsuit comes on the heels of a judicial rebuke for Obama’s transgender school bathroom policy, and a major study by two Johns Hopkins University scholars on the subject of gender dysphoria itself. That study highlights not only the lack of benefit but the continued and/or escalated risk for those undergoing sex-reassignment surgery. But Obama’s rules in schools, federal facilities and the military — and various lawsuits against bakers, photographers and florists — aren’t about the law, and they aren’t about settled science. The Rainbow Mafia has an agenda that it will push at all costs. A lawsuit or unfavorable ruling here or there isn’t going to stop their onslaught against traditional values and Rule of Law.
