Biden Goes ALL OUT – Forces Woke Science On Doctors
(RepublicanNews.org) – In 2016, the Obama administration tried to force doctors to provide so-called “gender-affirming” care to children — even if they thought it would harm the child. After a long legal battle, courts blocked that mandate. Now, President Biden is trying to resurrect it.
A May 2016 federal mandate required almost all US healthcare providers to perform, or provide insurance coverage for, sex change treatment, even where the patient was a child. An alliance of more than 19,000 medical professionals and eight states challenged the order in federal court, and last August, the US District Court for the Northern District of Texas granted a permanent injunction blocking the government from forcing healthcare providers to perform or insure treatments they think are harmful or unethical.
Biden Administration Looks to Force Doctors to Perform Gender Transition Procedures

Still, the Biden administration immediately pledged to appeal the ruling, and on August 4, that appeal opened in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, LA. If the appeal succeeds, doctors will be subject to a new — but very similar — mandate that would force them to provide “gender-affirming” care or face steep fines. Under the new order, care could include a number of treatments, both invasive and non-invasive, to “treat gender dysphoria or support gender affirmation or transition.”
Meanwhile, between 73% and 94% of children with gender dysphoria may grow out of it after puberty. Should the government really force doctors to treat a problem that, nine times out of ten, might treat itself naturally?
