So Biden wants to force medical workers to do trans surgeries, huh?
· Dec 30, 2022 ·

Don't ever doubt it for a second — when Democrats get in power, they follow through with it:

The Biden administration said Thursday it will withdraw a Trump administration rule, blocked by the courts, that would have allowed anyone involved in medical care, from doctors to receptionists, to refuse to take part in abortions, sterilizations, transgender care and other procedures for religious or moral reasons. ...

The proposed rule went well beyond a 1973 federal law, still in effect, that allows physicians and others directly involved in health care to refuse to take part in abortions or sterilizations unless their refusal would cause undue hardship to their employer. The rule announced by President Trump's administration would have allowed anyone in the health system to withhold their service and would have applied to gender-affirming care as well as abortions and sterilizations.

The rule had already been found in violation of federal law by three separate judges, which means it probably wouldn't have survived anyway.

But the White House's proactively withdrawing it sends an unmistakable message to medical officials around the country: You will be made to comply.

President Biden's Department of Health and Human Services said it is proposing a new rule that would rescind all of the previous proposal except some regulatory provisions, such as procedures for handling complaints, while complying with the long-standing federal law.

Medical workers who object to these procedures: Be prepared for a rough road ahead.
