Court blocks HHS from forcing Catholic doctors to perform transgender surgery

January 21, 2021

The day before Joe Biden was sworn in the courts made a decision which went quietly by the wayside but one which will probably become a much bigger issue under the Biden administration. According to this story the court blocked an Obamacare rule which would force Catholic doctors to perform transgender surgery. Here is more:

On Monday, the day before Joe Biden became president of the United States, a federal court in North Dakota defended Roman Catholic health care providers from an Obamacare mandate forcing doctors and nurses to perform experimental transgender surgeries that violate Roman Catholic convictions. The court enjoined the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) from forcing these Catholic physicians to perform transgender surgery.

This injunction will prevent the Biden administration from using the HHS and the EEOC to enforce the Obamacare transgender mandate, forcing doctors to provide cross-sex hormones and sex-reassignment surgery. 

Just yesterday Joe Biden’s Press Secretary Jen Psaki reaffirmed that the President was a “devout Catholic” so you would think Joe Biden would be happy about this decision, but I think we all know he is going to appeal this decision.

    May we assume this may end up in the US Supreme Court where the justices on the right may already be quaking in their collective boots knowing they may soon be joined by two to four lefties should they piss off the left? Why shouldn’t we assume the worst?

    Excuse me. A long long time ago in a land far away, there was something called a draft. At the age of 18 all genetic males had to register for the draft and subject themselves to the chance that they may be called forth to serve in the military against their will. The powers that be did recognize religious belief prevented a small portion of the population from bearing arms against another. The People were at peace with that exemption because they realized that diversity of belief was one of the nation’s core values and must be preserved. At times those core beliefs must be preserved using force even if some of the People do not believe in the use of force. Evil exists. It must be confronted. Preservation of conscience and belief was more important than forcing a person to do something against his core beliefs. That nation no longer exists, its core values lay on the ash heap of history but what little history that has survived the flame throwers of the Fahrenheit 451 Brigade’s troopers stand as an example to a thinking few. Diversity of thought and belief is worth preserving.

      Well put. I would only add that the same people that wouldn’t bear arms against another still found ways to serve their country. Most of them served as medics saving lives on the battlefield, while others volunteered as guinea pigs in bioweapons experiments. They wouldn’t kill another human, but they still volunteered their own lives in defense of the U.S.

      I have a great deal of respect for those men.

    Active duty military staff will now be confronted with this same dilemma. Biden has mandated tranny chop shop operations in military treatment facilities. Let’s see how this all works out. Not well, my guess.
