In this December 20, 2023 article for The Epoch Times, Jacob Burg reports on the lawsuit filed by 3,000 doctors against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) over a mandate broadening the term “sex” in federal civil rights statutes to include “gender identity” and “sexual orientation.”
The doctors argue that this rule forces them to provide “gender-affirming” care, such as hormone treatments and surgery, to children who want to transition, even if it goes against their medical judgment or religious beliefs. The lawsuit seeks to block HHS from penalizing doctors who refuse to provide such treatments. The article also explores the scientific debate around pediatric gender-altering procedures and highlights recent changes in the official position of governments like Sweden and Norway on the issue. Critics of the mandate argue that it infringes upon doctors’ rights and may harm children.
Editor’s Note: What gave governments the right to dictate to doctors what medical care to give to their patients? Why would governments force doctors to give a treatment that is potentially harmful to patients? Have we all forgotten the right of the patient to informed consent?
Whoever thought that children give true informed consent to a medical treatment that could permanently change their lives?
