The act allows health care professionals and insurance companies nationwide to discriminate against patients due to religious beliefs. So that means a doctor can say something like: “So, you’re sick but everything you stand for is against my religion, so I can’t really help you! Good luck.” Is this real life?
Judge Reed O’Connor finds The Affordable Care Act’s ‘nondiscriminatory rule’ a violation to the “religious freedom” of doctors and insurance companies that consider transgender and abortion to be “evil.”
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act allows doctors to not only turn away patients who have had an abortion, but it also protects doctors and insurance companies from providing or covering “abortion-related services.” Does he think that under the Affordable Care Act all doctors have to perform abortions?
THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT DOES NOT MEAN that all doctors have to perform gender reassignment or abortions. It just protects people from being discriminated against if they are transgender or have had an abortion. What is so bad about being non-discriminatory? What ever happened to love thy neighbor? That’s in the bible, right?
Judge O’Connor is also infamously known as the judge who prevented legislation that would have made it safer for transgender students to use any bathroom that they choose. So, if you had any doubts on what kind of person this man is, does that make it more clear?
