In 2016, Obama attached a “transgender” mandate to Obamacare that required all doctors to perform gender transition surgeries.
Since then, nearly 20,000 healthcare professionals across nine states have filed lawsuits against the ridiculous mandate.
And while several federal judges have already ruled against it, Biden is determined to force doctors to perform these permanent transition surgeries regardless of their religious convictions.
You see, it’s clear Biden doesn’t care about the religious convictions of doctors – he just wants to force his LGBT agenda into every arena that he can.
Even though studies have shown that transition surgeries do nothing to help those struggling with gender dysphoria and that the surgeries are actually harmful, Biden is living up to his campaign promise to promote the LGBT agenda – and has the power to do it.
But the truth is, most Americans are not on board with what his administration is doing and they’re fighting back.
In fact, just this past January, a North Dakota judge sided with Catholic hospitals to strike down the “transgender” mandate.
But, determined to enforce his pro-LGBT agenda, the Biden administration actually appealed the ruling.
Luke Goodrich from the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is representing the plaintiffs and tweeted:
“The plaintiffs are religious doctors, hospitals, and clinics who joyfully serve ALL patients regardless of sex or gender identity. They routinely provide top-notch care to transgender patients for everything from cancer to the common cold.
They also provide millions of dollars in free and low-cost care to the elderly, poor, and underserved–care that is jeopardized by the government’s attempt to punish them with multi-million-dollar penalties.
The Transgender Mandate not only threatens religious doctors and hospitals. It also threatens patients, as there is ample evidence that certain gender transition procedures can be deeply harmful…
The Biden Admin shouldn’t have appealed. But we look forward to another ruling that protects patients, aligns with current medical research, and ensures doctors aren’t forced to violate their religious beliefs and professional medical judgment.”
Forcing doctors to violate their religious beliefs is unconscionable.
But again – Biden’s team doesn’t care.
From flying the “transgender” flag in front of the White House, to wanting the world to look to America as the beacon in LGBT policy, Biden isn’t wasting any time enacting drastic measures.
And sadly, he continues to target religious leaders in the worst way ever.
Transition surgery is tragic enough – many individuals come to regret their decision to have one, but by then it’s too late and the damage is already done.
Catholic doctors should not be forced to violate their own convictions because the government deems such needless surgeries as “necessary.”
Let’s pray the mandate gets struck down once and for all and that those who are struggling with gender dysphoria find their healing and identity in Christ.
