125 Members of Congress Condemn Attack on Trans Health Care

By: 

Today is the last day you can leave a comment at ProtectTransHealth.org and stand up for the right of every person to health care free from prejudice or bigotry.

And when you do so, you'll be joining 125 members of Congress who demanded the Trump administration withdraw its proposed plan to encourage doctors and providers to turn away transgender people just because of who they are. As the letter reads:

No entity receiving government funding should discriminate against their patients. The proposed rule is yet another attack on LGBTQ individuals, those seeking reproductive health care, immigrants, individuals who are LEP, those living with low incomes, and individuals living at intersections of these identities. These communities already face too many barrriers to accessing quality, affordable health care. This proposed rule will embolden discrimination in our health care system and have devastating impacts on acccess to health care for millions across this country, exacerbating already troubling health disparities.

Have you made your voice heard against this latest attack by the Trump administration? You can still leave a comment at ProtectTransHealth.org until midnight tonight!
