Shock: Biden Denies Funds to Hospitals Rejecting Trans Surgeries!

Several Catholic groups are accusing the Biden Administration of wielding federal funding as a weapon against hospitals that uphold their beliefs by refusing to perform transgender surgeries on minors. This move is seen as part of the administration’s broader agenda to push radical reforms onto the American populace, especially in the realm of healthcare.

During a House hearing, Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill) engaged in a tense exchange with Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra, accusing him of targeting Catholics and religious-based medical facilities. The contention arose following the implementation of a new HHS rule that mandates medical practices to refrain from discriminating against patients based on various factors, including their gender identity.

Katy Talento, a former health advisor under the Trump Administration and current executive director of the Alliance of Health Care Sharing Ministries, criticized the new rule for compelling hospitals to conduct gender-affirming surgeries, a practice that contradicts the beliefs held by many Catholics.

In response to Miller’s queries during the hearing, Becerra defended the rule, emphasizing that doctors have the right to decline offering specific care if it conflicts with their religious beliefs. However, he clarified that healthcare facilities that receive federal funding must comply with the law and provide services required by it.

The exchange highlighted the delicate balance between healthcare providers’ religious freedoms and federal regulations, with critics like CatholicVote President Brian Burch condemning the Biden Administration’s approach as hostile and discriminatory towards Catholics and religious Americans, signaling a departure from previous administrations’ handling of such issues.
