Trump Administration’s Dept. of Health and Human Services To Drop LGBT Protections

The Trump Administration issued a proposed rule today that strips existing protections for sexual orientation, gender identity, and for individuals in same-sex marriages in all programs and grants administered by the Department of Health and Human Services.”

 Via the Washington Blade:

The Department of Health & Human Services went public on Friday with the regulation, which will undo an Obama-era policy prohibiting discrimination discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation among federal grantees. The proposed regulation, which will have far-reaching implications, was immediately was criticized by LGBT rights supporters. Julie Kruse, director of federal policy at Family Equality Council, said in a statement the policy was “outrageous,” especially at the start of National Adoption Month.

“The American public overwhelmingly opposes allowing taxpayer-funded adoption and foster care agencies to turn away qualified parents simply because they are in a same-sex relationship,” Kruse said. According to NCTE, the rule will allow anti-trans discrimination in HIV and STI prevention programs, opioid programs, youth homelessness services, health professional training, substance-use recovery programs and other life-saving services.

Tha anti-LGBT recognized hate group the Family Research Council, applauded the Trump administration’s move saying that charities would no longer have to choose between “abandoning their faith or abandoning homeless children.”
