    A federal judge in New York has struck down a Trump administration rule allowing health care providers to opt out of procedures to which they have religious or moral objections, a policy that threatened care for LGBTQ people and others.

    The rule, finalized by the Department of Health and Human Services in May, was to take effect November 22. But Wednesday, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York “found the rule conflicts with Title VII, which prohibits workplace discrimination, and the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act, an anti-patient-dumping law that requires providers to care for people who come to emergency departments suffering from emergency medical conditions regardless of their ability to pay,” Bloomberg Law reports.

    WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO WHEN GAY PEOPLE SUFFERING EMERGENCIES RECEIVE PROMPT AND EFFECTIVE MEDICAL TREATMENT?!?!

    Not quite yet. The U.S. District Court has staved it off for a little while, at least.

    I was actually quoting Corrie ten Boom, from last century.

    She was quoting Scripture, and revealing God's Plan and Purpose.

    It's a good day for the continued fight of civil rights and equality for LGBT American citizens. I'm proud of this Judge for firmly upholding America's founding ideals of freedom, liberty and justice for all.

    Which procedures that someone has a moral or religious objection to would be specific only to LGBT?

    American freedom. I'm curious, was Ecuador originally founded on the ideals of freedom, liberty and justice for all like the United States of America or has its government ever declared: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"?

    "“I would note the case of Evan Minton, a transgender man who was denied a hysterectomy shortly before the surgery after the religiously affiliated hospital at hand canceled the treatment,” she said. “Notably, the doctors and surgeons actually performing the procedure had no issue with doing so. A very similar case was just filed in California last March and another was filed in New Jersey in January."

    Men can't get hysterectomies. Biology 101.

    Or...did you mean a woman who wanted to be a man? Was the hysterectomy part of this delusion, and was it an elective procedure?

    And this would be an example as to why we need to ensure discrimination protection exists.

    My mom had an elective hysterectomy. “The majority of hysterectomies performed in this country are elective." What do you need to know all the answers to these questions for?

    Anyone who wants a hysterectomy should be able to get one, no questions asked, regardless of whatever gender they identify with. Believe it or not, there are many people who have no interest in popping out babies left and right regardless of whether they consider themselves to be female or male.
