US restores transgender health protections

The Biden administration has reversed yet another Trump-era policy, protecting gay and transgender people against sex discrimination in health care. The action by the DHS affirms that federal laws forbidding sex discrimination in health care also protect gay and transgender people. ’Everyone, including LGBTQ people, should be able to access health care,’ HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra said.

I don't want or believe that we should pay for hormone therapy or sex changes, that sounds like a personal issue. If that makes me a bigot then so be it.

Very cool. Not like your sex is a big part of what sort of treatment you should get from a doctor. Can't wait for hysterectomies on biological males.

As if they couldn't access it before? The point of the Trump-era bill was to say hey i know you fell like a female... but hey face facts your body doesn't... why not go to a specialist who knows your body so you can live out what ever life you choose

Depends on what you mean by healthcare. Tax dollars shouldn't be spent on sex change operations.

Hopefully this will ovveride the anti trans laws GOP states have established to block healthcare. Hopefully he's looking for a way to re-establish the abortion clinics that GOP overregulation shut down in deference to their religious masters in opposition to the first amendment.

It says "everyone should be able to access healthcare". I agree. But are they saying that Trump did not allow transgender people to get health check-ups? No cancer screenings? No eye exams? I very much doubt it.

The issue wasn’t that the LGBTQ community was unable to access Healthcare. That’s simply preposterous to assume any Healthcare plan would deny a member. The true issue was that the Trans, Gender Queer, Pansexual, Asexual-etc, had been granted so many privileges that they actually began encroaching upon the rights & freedoms of Heterosexual Cisgender people. How can we all be granted equality, autonomy, and Religious freedom under the Constitution if one group’s feelings—one’s rights are placed ahead of all remaining citizens? That is why President Trump, the ONLY POTUS who supported Gay marriage walking into Office, decided to to make the previous ruling.

The administration of anti-science strikes again. What did we expect when he put a mentally ill person in charge of the department of health and human services.🤦🏽‍♂️

Fantastic. I mean why shouldn't we treat them like our own? I mean they feel just like anyone else they bleed like anyone else. Just bcs ppl think that they have a "mental disorder" (which they don't) doesn't mean they don't deserve to be treated like any other human which I believe they do.

Hurry up, men. Those OB/GYN appointments full up fast. Don't even ask how long it takes to get a mamogram.

Insurance companies just want to make millions off of expensive reassignment surgery that has been proven to not lower suicide rates of those with gender dysphoria. Putting people's health at risk so they can make more money, they wont make as much through counseling.

What does this have to do with gay people?

Yeah, allowing stupid people within a mile of me violates my right to healthcare. I demand that the US Federal government forcibly relocate people whom I deem irritating to more than a mile away from me at all times. If you don't like it you are a bigot who wants to deny healthcare to people like me.
