Trump Ruling Discriminates Against Transgender People


By recognising only 'sex' as male or female, the ruling may deny transgender people medical treatment.

America is in the midst Pride Month and the BLM protests – two movements calling out systemic discrimination and rallying for equality. Despite this, President Trump has decided to introduce new systemic discrimination rather than eradicate pre-existing ones.

He revoked a healthcare provision that protects transgender people from discrimination in healthcare, allowing doctors and hospitals to deny them treatment of any kind if they so wish. This also extends to anti-discrimination laws for those with a history of pregnancy termination, possibly restricting access to abortions.

Trump has also decided to save government finances by not providing translated notices of things such as insurance information, denying information to those who may not have English as their first language. While America rallies against discrimination, these discriminatory rulings do just one thing – rally conservative supporters for Trump’s upcoming election.

REMOVES ANTI- DISCRIMINATION SAFEGUARDS 


• Trump is revising an Obama-era healthcare law that encouraged recognition of a person's inner judgment of identifying male, female, neither, or a mix. 

• The previous rule was meant to ensure that transgender individuals do not face discrimination at the hands of doctors and hospitals. 

• The ruling also eliminates anti-discrimination safeguards for patients with a history of pregnancy termination; it has been termed a 'shocking attack' on vulnerable communities. 

AN ATTACK IN THE MIDST OF PRIDE MONTH 


• In the midst of Pride Month, and protests against discrimination, the US President has decided that 'sex' as 'male' and 'female' shall only be identified; this alienates transgender individuals from healthcare

• This also restricts access to abortions, as medical workers could now decide to not carry out certain procedures if they do not 'believe in them'. 

• It 'saves' $2.9 bn by canceling translated notices for things such as insurer 'explanation of benefits'; those without English as their mother tongue then do not get such information.

OPPOSITION CRITICISES THE RULING 


• LGBTQ rights groups believe that explicit protections are needed, as this discrimination may extend to even regular treatments such as that for diabetes. 

• It is also believed that the ruling may indeed strengthen discrimination in society as the government sets a precedent for similar discrimination.  

• The conservatives, however, show overwhelming support; they say the Obama government overreached their jurisdiction by extending the definition of gender. 


REPUBLICANS: 'GENDER IS DETERMINED AT BIRTH' 


The Republicans say discrimination shall not occur as 'gender is determined at birth' - this alienates a whole community, encourages discrimination, and seems like a move to rally now-happy conservatives ahead of the election.

CREATING A DISCRIMINATORY SOCIETY 


• Trump's government has continually created a rift in society; the President has recognised the plight of his majority voters, while denying any recognition to the issues faced by them. 

• In the past too, his government restricted military service by transgender individuals and told homeless shelters to consider gender identity when offering care in their facility. 

• Actions like this move down into society, normalising and encouraging discrimination and thereby violence - and all for what? Nothing more than votes.
