The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft [memo from the Department of HHS] reviewed by The [New York] Times. Any dispute about one’s sex would have to be clarified using genetic testing." "The move would remove recognition of and protections for transgender people under U.S. civil rights laws promoted by the prior administration of President Barack Obama in health care, schools and the military." Approximately 1.4 million U.S. adults identify as transgender. Read about more issues regarding transgender people in the United States here.

"According to a Pentagon memo about the policy [issued in February of 2018], exceptions to the ban include people who have been 'stable for 36 consecutive months in their biological sex prior to accession,' servicemembers who 'do not require a change of gender' and troops who started serving under the Obama administration's policy prior to the new memo." The memo also states "the Department of Defense concludes that there are substantial risks associated with allowing the accession and retention of individuals with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria and require, or have already undertaken, a course of treatment to change their gender." On Monday October 20, 2017 a Federal Judge blocked President Trump’s previous ban of transgender troops from entering and serving in the U.S. Military and a ban of using federal funds for gender reassignment treatments or procedures, as it did not "appear to be supported by any facts."

Federal District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly wrote in her decision that "there is absolutely no support for the claim that the ongoing service of transgender people would have any negative effective on the military at all and "in fact, there is considerable evidence that it is the discharge and banning of such individuals that would have such effects."

The judge also noted "a number of factors — including the sheer breadth of the exclusion ordered by the directives, the unusual circumstances surrounding the President’s announcement of them, the fact that the reasons given for them do not appear to be supported by any facts, and the recent rejection of those reasons by the military itself — strongly suggest that Plaintiffs’ Fifth Amendment claim is meritorious."

This guidance also prohibits the federal government from interfering with "the autonomy of a religious organization" and also from favoring or targeting any "particular religious groups." This guidance also allows a person, group, or organization to refuse services or protections to another person, group, or organization based on religious values. For example, the Federal Department of Health and Human Services has immediately issued two rules that exempt healthcare providers and insurance companies from "providing an otherwise mandated item to which they object on the basis of their religious beliefs or moral convictions." In other words, healthcare providers and insurance companies will now be allowed to "deny women insurance coverage for contraception" or related care and procedures based on this religious belief exemption, even if the patient does not share those same beliefs. As another example, "clerks with the Social Security Administration or the Department of Veterans Affairs who do not agree with same-sex marriage could refuse, under this guidance, to process paperwork to provide benefits to a widow in a same-sex marriage."     [post_title] => Attorney General Jeff Sessions Issues Religious Liberty Protections Guidance Allowing Religious Exemptions From Federal Law; Guidance Possibly Limits Protection From Discrimination Against Women And LGBT Individuals [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => attorney-general-jeff-sessions-issues-religious-liberty-protections-guidance-allowing-religious-exemptions-federal-law-guidance-possibly-limits-protection-discrimination-women-l [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-10-07 16:23:16 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-10-07 16:23:16 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://factualuprising.com/?p=2383 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [9] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2329 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2017-09-01 01:54:59 [post_date_gmt] => 2017-09-01 01:54:59 [post_content] => On August 25, 2017 President Trump issued a memorandum "to return to the longstanding policy and practice on military service by transgender individuals that was in place prior to June 2016." "In June 2016, President Barack Obama allowed transgender soldiers to serve openly and receive related medical treatment."  President Trumps reversal of Obama's order effectively bans transgender individuals from entering military service, effective January 1, 2018. The memorandum also issues a "halt [of] all use of DoD or DHS resources to fund sex reassignment surgical procedures for military personnel, except to the extent necessary to protect the health of an individual who has already begun a course of treatment to reassign his or her sex." Trump announced this change on Twitter a month before issuing this memorandum. On October 20, 2017, a Federal Judge blocked this ban, citing lack of facts and concerns over the intent of the ban.
