President Trump's Health and Human Services (HHS) is removing another of President Obama's oppressive restrictions placed on the lives of American citizens.

This roll-back is the rule that prohibited HealthCare workers from refusing to treat people, or perform procedures, if doing so contradicted their belief system, or conscience. Soon, they will have one more God-given freedom returned to them.

The Trump administration has reportedly developed rules to shield healthcare workers who do not want to perform abortions or provide services to transgender patients, in a move activists have called a “license to discriminate” against LGBT people and women.

The rule creates a new division in the Health and Human Services (HHS) Civil Rights Office to assist healthcare workers who say they were forced to provide services contradicting their religious or moral beliefs. It will also find and discipline institutions who do not properly allow for these so-called “conscience objections," according to multiple news reports.

HHS Acting Secretary Eric Hargan said the new rule was a way to “vigorously uphold the rights of conscience and religious freedom”.

I know there will be some people who'll be upset over allowing healthcare workers to decline to treat certain individuals, and/or perform certain procedures that they morally object to. But the desire of almost every human being, is to live life with as much personal freedom as possible.

Well, hopefully, doctors will still follow their Hippocratic Oath and not abandon a patient because of their religious beliefs but unfortunately not all Healthcare workers take such an oath, like ambulance drivers.

How is this a good thing? The purpose of healthcare workers is to help others. Hell, the Hippocratic Oath pretty much says that you pledge to help others no matter what.

I bet if healthcare workers chose to stop helping people that support Trump there would be major backlash among those that act like this is a good thing. But as long as it seems like it just allows service to be denied to gays and transsexuals it's a good thing.

You're implying that a Jewish person would be wise to not let Dr. Raul Hussein operate on him?

Interesting point, but a dangerous game Team Trump is playing a dangerous game. I'm sure they're only rolling it back because Obama and, of course, to discriminate against the gays and women.

So doctors can now refuse to treat someone because of their religious beliefs.

It's funny the stuff you Trump supporters call a win. You've turned yourselves around to the point you're applauding religious based discrimination.

Seriously?

Your quote is exactly what I was expecting.

Something totally ridiculous, just like the new casters presenting the news. Totally ridiculous.

You think?

EMT fired for refusing to transport abortion patient sues claiming religious discrimination



Manion said that under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the federal statute that prohibits religious discrimination by private companies, the company had an obligation to at least try to accommodate Adamson.


All this does is allow extremist Christians to discriminate against whomever they want and in it's wake we'll see a spike in lawsuits all across the country. Of course, Trump loves lawsuits so he'll see that as a big win.

Not me. I want the government to increase in size and I want them to force people to work for welfare in slave labor camps that produce for the rest of society. Only poor people though. I also want to film something called The Hunger Games. This will be a show about the poorest people picking someone to die so the rest of them can eat.
