The healthcare order that allows to discriminate is out in the USA


The Trump administration has issued new rules that grant healthcare workers a right to discriminate against certain categories of patients on the basis of their (the healthcare providers’) religious beliefs. First and foremost it will mean a right to discriminate against LGBT patients. In a speech to conservative evangelical leaders at the White House on May 2nd the President of the United States Donald Trump has officially confirmed the plans to scrap down the LGBT-protective healthcare measures launched by his predecessor Barack Obama. “They’ve been wanting to do that for a long time, right Mike? They’ve been wanting to do that for a long time,” the President said, addressing his right hand Mile Pence. The Department of Health and Human Services issued the new rules, extending rights for religious objection against an alleged “culture of hostility to conscience concerns in health care.” It advises healthcare professionals: “You have the right under Federal law to decline to perform, assist in the performance of, refer for, undergo, or pay for certain health care‐related treatments, research, or services (such as abortion or assisted suicide, among others) that violate your conscience, religious beliefs, or moral convictions.”
