Obama Transgender Care Rule Under Fire

Lawsuits are mounting against the Obama administration’s new requirements for transgender care, but the issue might turn in their opponents’ favor under the incoming Trump administration, the 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.

  1. It seems I have lost the ability to comprehend the new language – is a “transgendered man” a man who thinks he’s a woman, or vice versa?
    No matter.
    This issue is really about government trolls deciding the medical care given to an individual regardless of the attending doctor’s best care or practice.
    Of course, a woman appearing in a doctor’s office looking and acting like a man is still a woman, and would need medical attention to her feminine organs, and vice versa.

  2. Barry Obama is stunningly stupid and obtuse. He is bound and determined to force his perverted ideology on America, totally overlooking the sensibilities and religious convictions of the majority of Americans.
    Good riddance to bad rubbish. 17 days and counting. You will not be missed. We can only hope that you sink into the oblivion you so richly deserve.
    BTW, IMHO, any man who wants to submit himself to a pap smear and vaginal exam is a masochist.

    • My dear Mother claimed that if doctors looked for signs of testicular cancer (it does happen) the same way they look for women’s breast cancer, they would throw the mammogram machines in the trash.

    • She makes 15 million with FOX and was offered 20 million to stay. She said no after many days of negotiations and her contract with FOX is up in July.

      We don’t know how much NBC offered her.

      I won’t miss her.

  4. I’m having logic problems. A dude who “becomes a girl” wants a Pap smear. How the heck is that even possible? A pretend, doctor made vag1na? ?????
