HHS moves to roll back Obama-era transgender health policy

The Trump administration proposed revoking Obama-era discrimination protections for transgender people in health care on Friday. The Health and Human Services Department released a proposed regulation that in effect says ’gender identity’ is not protected under federal laws. The proposal faces a comment period and another layer of review before it can be finalized. Court challenges are expected.

Do we often write laws to protect those with specific mental disorders? I don't understand the issue. I have massive sympathy for those that suffer from this disorder and wish them strength and clarity as they come to grips with reality. I only hope they make the choice to embrace reality before it is too late and they become another suicide statistic which is so prevalent with this condition. https://www.google.com/amp/s/beta.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/09/14/more-than-half-of-transgender-male-adolescents-attempt-suicide-study-says/%3foutputType=amp https://www.healio.com/pediatrics/developmental-behavioral-medicine/news/online/%7Bd8196d4a-493e-4ea0-820e-8b59fcb5ec62%7D/up-to-half-of-transgender-teens-attempt-suicide
