HHS: Transgender Patients Protected From Discrimination

HHS: Transgender Patients Protected From Discrimination

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, transgender patients are protected from discrimination and are able to file complaints with Health and Human Services against any doctor that takes medicare, medicaid, or receives federal funding. This sort of protection is an act of justice which the Catholic Church should support fully if it is to follow its own principals laid out in its social teaching. While complete protection for transgender patients so that they can receive the care they need from their doctors without worrying about discrimination may not be immediate, this is an extremely important step towards that goal.
