A number of health clinics, cough hospitals and a university have joined the state of North Dakota in a lawsuit against a new federal regulation that demands that doctors – all of the estimated 900, cialis 000 in America – be ready, willing and able to perform gender-transition procedures on children.
That’s even if the physician believes such treatment could harm the child.
“No doctor should be forced to perform a procedure that he or she believes will harm a child,” said Lori Windham, a senior counsel for the group. “Decisions on a child’s medical treatment should be between families and their doctors, not dictated by politicians and government bureaucrats.”
The lawsuit is on behalf of the Religious Sisters of Mercy, Sacred Heart Mercy Health Care Center in Jackson, Minnesota; Sacred Heart Mercy Health Care Center in Alma, Mississippi; SMP Health System; the University of Mary; and North Dakota.
Defendants are HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell and the federal agency.
